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

Loved the host's welcome and the introduction to the restaurant. Décor had a fun, kitschy casual feel. The 1/2 lobster roll was authentic in taste, but the portion rather undersized compared to what I used to get in Boston or Maine. The shellfish chowder was...More

Being from New England, I'm always suspect about seafood in the middle of the country. Clawdaddy's is definitely the exception. The lobster was fresh and so were the rolls. Cole slaw is made in house was just how I like it. I also sampled the...More

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
