The Claw Bar brings chic hotel dining to the Bellasera Resort in downtown Naples. Featuring the same gracious hospitality and spectacular cuisine you’ve come to love at our original location within The Bay House in North Naples, The Claw Bar specializes in seafood towers assembled right before your eyes in our open kitchen, as well as a full array of seafood entrees, southern-influenced dishes, and regionally-inspired cuisine. The Claw Bar prides itself on using locally-grown and locally-sourced ingredients whenever possible.
*Please note that the majority of our indoor tables are comfortable booths. Please feel free to call to discuss our full array of seating options, including seating at the Claw Bar itself!
* In the event of inclement weather, we will do our best to accommodate our guests seated outside, but we cannot guarantee that they will be able to move inside if the indoor tables are fully booked.

It was my third time here and my friend’s first time. It was amazing. We both had Sea BLT Salad that was out of this world. The salad was filled with large chunks of lobster and good sized shrimp. Although it was my friend’s first time it won’t be her last. The service was outstanding. Everyone was so professional and pleasant. It was so great we are thinking about having an event there.

Our entire table enjoyed the three course Summer menu. Baked oysters were amazing, raw oysters were good and the bisque was delicious. We all had grouper cheeks for our entrees and beignets for dessert. The filet is also a good choice as we had that entree on a prior visit.

Our dining experience at The Claw Bar was superb. Great menu including raw bar seafood and cooked seafood, steak, Nashville Chicken- the works for all types of eaters! The service was excellent from our waiter Tudor and the ambiance was elegant. We enjoyed the inside but it is a little crowded with tables close together. The presence of 5 loud gentlemen in a booth near to our table caused us not to be able to hear each other very well. I recommend outside seating for a less crowded setting, but it was hot and rainy and we wanted air conditioning. Our food choices were well prepared and very tasty. Pimiento cheese and seafood salad appetizer were good, but best shared. Too heavy for one person. Assorted baked seafood, assorted seafood in a broth, and filets with frites were excellent. One minor issue - some of us ordered from the fixed price special menu and chose the Farmers Salad as a first course, then when we received the steak and frites there was a rocket salad also on the plate. Perhaps our waiter should have suggested a different first course because the rocket salad was wasted. Desserts are fantastic, and we highly recommend the cornbread!

This was our second visit to the Claw Bar; first time the meal and service were fabulous. This time we were given a sample of a cauliflower and kale soup which was not very tasty. My husband and I ordered swordfish which was served with a crusty rice and broccoli coated with kimchi which was way too spicy for me to eat. When the waiter came by to ask about the meal, I indicated that I couldn't eat the broccoli. He brought me a new side dish without the kimchi which was very nice. The service was just fine and the decor and atmosphere are beautiful; not sure I'll go back for a while for the food.

My wife and I had dinner here to celebrate her birthday. Everything was outstanding. After dining at basically every restaurant on both 5th ave and 3rd south, I’m putting this in the top 5 easily. Very much worth a visit.

We loved it very much ocerall, the only complain is that when I made the reservation I pointed out that it was a birthday celebration, when we got there the Hostess was clueless and they couldnt find my name and we had to tell them after that it was a birthday. We got a complimetary birthday cake and a nice keepsake whoch was a very nice touch.

Claw Bar was a fun discovery, but I must say it is hard to find. I had to call the Maitre'D three times to get there. Bella Sera, the hotel, in which it is located , sits back off the road and the signage for the hotel is hard to see. The restaurant should be really nice during the winter months because they have some lovely outdoor space, but it's just too hot now to enjoy it. The bar is quite large and was full when we arrived. I had made reservations, so our booth was waiting for us in the main dining area. The amuse bouche which the chef sent was a delicious cream of onion soup. My friend and I had the sweet and sour grilled shrimp, which was delicious. The other member of our party had the fried oysters and said they were divine. The ice cream Sunday is huge and FABULOUS. The three of us split it.

This was our first time at The Claw Bar and we can’t wait to return. Our entire experience was a very positive one from the moment we walked in with a very friendly greeting to our delicious food and tasty drinks and very attentive service. My husband and I were both very impressed with the staff’s attention to detail. Looking forward to returning !

The Claw Bar continues to impress with outstanding food and service. Now running a $39 three course prix fixe dinner menu that has excellent choices. Specials are always worth a try. And don't leave without trying one of the desserts (beignets are my favorite). Noise level can be a little high depending on your location and the surrounding patrons. Service is always prompt, professional and friendly.

This was our first visit to this particular Claw Bar (We've been at the Bay House many times). All 4 of us agreed that it was an outstanding Father's Day Brunch. I can especially recommend the Brunch Burger, and we will be going back just for their burgers (ground sirloin, brisket, and short ribs). Great venue with excellent service. 5 stars all around!
