Why is our seafood so amazing?

Our lobsters come to us directly off the boats each day !

Nestled in the Lobster Capital of the World, Rockland, Maine, overlooking the harbor, Claws offers only the freshest seafood available sourced from local fishermen.

Our expansive deck provides views not only of the Harbor but also a unique view of main street. With Lobsters & Crabs from Penobscot Bay, Scallops from Vinyl Haven and Clams from the Saint George your taste buds will hum with glee for the sweet briny flavors. There is just something in the water up here. Time and again customers say “they have never had sweeter Lobster”, “Clams that are like candy”, and Crabmeat that’s “so amazing it should be illegal”.

At Claws, we pride ourselves in serving food that Mom would be proud of. Lobster rolls with nothing but a touch of Hellman’s. The way it has been done in Rockland for the millennia. Crabmeat rolls so full they literally roll, the sweet meat will send you over the edge. Steamers, oh… the steamers…so sweet they will melt in your mouth.

Claws offers dining in the rough, no one wants to attempt to eat a lobster wearing a suit with fine china. This is serious business, so roll up your sleeves, grab a picnic table and prepare for an experience you will savor again and again…
