Took my family here and we enjoyed the view and crabs.This place has been here for almost 50 years.I like that you can sit inside or outside.Outside your practically in the water as you watch boats of all sizes go by.

Enjoyed a late Sunday lunch at the crab claw. Our party of four enjoyed crab claws, shrimp, crab cakes, and lobster salad. Nice casual atmosphere with seating inside overlooking the harbor or outside on the deck.

We visited St. Michaels for the day, took the Patriot Boat Tour (highly recommend) and dined for lunch at the Crab Claw. View of the harbor is very nice, and as one other reviewer said, that's what you pay for. My wife had broiled rockfish and I had stuffed rockfish, with cream of crab soup. The fish was rather bland without taste, and "stuffed" crab was a joke, just a few bits of backfin. The cream of crab was just OK.... I've had much better at restaurants not near the water. Not really worth the price paid. Next trip we will check out another restaurant.

The patio had a great view and they do allow dogs, which is always a plus in our book. Other than that the food and service were average. It looked as though most other diners were having buckets of crab and enjoying the hammering and such. They were raving about the crabs, which we did not have so that might be worth going back for.

The crabs were great, but don't let the casual feel of the place fool you -- crabs are expensive. For two of us, enjoying 3 small softshells, 2 hardshells, 2 crabcakes and 2 beers came to $100 including tip. Great service, great atmosphere, great crabs.
