Historically my experiences at DuClaw have been in a booth on the restaurant side. This time I sat in the bar with a friend having drinks and apps. Had a great time. Service here continues to be the best in Bowie. The beer selection broad and excellent. Apps were reasonably proced and tasty. Highly recommend.

I used to come to DuClaw (this location) regularly, though due to some life changes it has been about a year since my last visit. Previously I would have given it a 4 or 5. The food was always top notch and the DuClaw tap list was great, though the service could be uneven. When we arrived I saw a... More

DuClaw is a good happy hour spot. Fun atmosphere and good variety of food and beer selection. Also a good pick for pre-movie dinner in Bowie.

Recently enjoyed a casual meal with friends and was impressed with the waitstaff and quality of food. I always get nervous when a server doesn't write down an order for a large group but even with many substitutions and requests, our server nailed it! Menu boasts a variety of seafood American eats combined with a great beer list.

The bar scene is good and the staff is knowledgeable about beer but if you are getting anything more than bar food-burger or sandwich-it is likely to be over or under cooked. I have been served salmon that was cold and pink in the center and a chocolate brownie so over cooked it skittered across the table when I tried... More

The restaurant is grubby and the service slow and a bit random. However, the food was very good. The beer was good too - but the one I chose from the menu was not available. Overall, will not be going back.

I've never been in a place so poorly managed. I'll get right too it. They let people bring fast food and eat it on their patio??? 8 minutes to finally get greeted at the bar, asked about a beer and had the menus pushed in front of me. Had to watch 15 minutes of the Simpsons because no one could... More

The food was very spicy (even though I didn't order a particularly spicy dish) and the service was very slow. Took 10 minutes just to get the bill when asked for (it wasn't busy either).

The sig outside of the restaurant states that they are ope under new management. All aspects of the restaurant needs to be re vamped again. The service was extremely poor, the food average at best and the beer had no distinctive taste. We went in with high hopes. They were dashed at the entrance. The host was not attentive. The... More

First we had to wait for a server, who came when we were about to leave. Apparently he was not a waiter, but thanks to him we got service. Wish he hadn't because the food was definitely not worth the wait.
