Food and atmosphere was wonderful. Our server seemed like he may have been having a bad day. He was not terrible, just not pleasant.

Overall great. Very crowded and our server was ok - we’ve had better there. Waited quite a while after getting seated to be acknowledged and order drinks, then we felt she was rushing us to order. We’ve eaten here a few times and the service was always 5 star, so this was a little disappointing since it was our companions’ first time and we had talked up the great service. Wasn’t bad, just not great. We will definitely go back and already have future reservations.

We requested an outside table. Our guests arrived before us and were seated in a booth in the lounge directly across from singer. If you look at notes and previous history we also ask for outside, quiet and booth. We are elderly and don’t hear well. We don’t do stairs too well either.

When we asked to sit outside we were rudely told nothing was available till 8:30.

Server pushed up to order. Food was dry. The salmon I had was nothing like the delicious sale I had a week ago. We requested separate checks from high she forgot to split.

Restaurant and Lounge were definitely not COVID friendly.

I’m glad you had a good night. We sure didn’t.

Not very friendly waiter. First made our very cold dirty martinis without the dirty and warm. Then wanted to give us a side of olive juice so we could fix them?? His mask was too large and kept slipping below his nose. Food was ok.

Celebrated our Anniversary at the Claw Bar. I let them know it was our anniversary and am I glad I did. They found us a quiet table outside and painted happy anniversary on a shell.
They served us a complimentary champagne with our desert. We felt fussed over. It was wonderful from beginning to end.

The staff at the Claw Bar is always terrific. Our waitress this time was Michelle and she was excellent with the perfect balance of professionalism and friendliness.

Pothole appetizer was wonderful and loved the name being from Michigan where we have many potholes that are a real pain. The snapper special entre was also very good.

The outside setting is very comfortable and was very nice as there was a little rain the night we were most recently there.

I ordered the gulf shrimp cocktail but tasted like frozen shrimp. They were definitely not fresh. Also ordered the lobster spaghetti and that was ok.

My wife ordered the fried oysters and snapper special and she said that was good.

Restaurant nothing to write home about. Mediocre at best. Overpriced for the quality of food that was offered.

Sorry but I don’t usually give bad reviews to restaurants.
