If you like lobster rolls, you’ll love Clawdaddy’s. Their menu states the rolls are 100% pure shellfish—no fillers. I can attest that they are completely honest in that assertion. The roll was piled high with large chunks of lobster. Can’t wait to try some of...More

We placed a rather large order to-go and they were super quick to have it ready and everything was correct. We went with 2 orders of the largest sampler platter consisting of 2 lobster rolls, 1 crab roll and 1 shrimp roll with 2 sides...More

Location: Downtown Lexington, KY! Based on what I observed, I don't know if it's possible to find street parking but there are tons of parking garages. The place: Small, no frills kind of deal. It's not fancy but it's clean. Also, the bathroom was huge...More

Food is good. Very small building. Very small portions. Very big price. Also, got food to go and they forgot my slaw.

The lobster bisque was barely flavored over oily water. At best call it a broth but it had no rich creamy quality that is the very definition of bisque. It also had basically no lobster in it, not one single chunk in the entire bowl....More

I was the only customer yesterday at 1145. The lobster roll was nicely filled and yummy. Dont bother with the bisque. I didnt have one piece of lobster at all. The owners have an ambitious undertaking. Wish them luck!

This was my first visit & I was a bit surprised. It is located in downtown Lexington, across from Victorian Square, but at lunchtime only had one other customer. I didn't expect it to be set up like a fast food restaurant although the owner...More

Went there for lunch. A bit pricey but it was as advetised. All seafood, no fillers. I had the sampler of a half lobster roll, a half shrimp roll and a half crab roll. I also tried their lobster bisque. Everything was fresh and wonderfully...More
