Restaurant was loud and the tables are super close. They had a DJ on the second floor but you could barley hear it. We got the claw feast and it was exactly as pictured. And it tasted good. But boy oh boy was it messy....More

We were just strolling around in the area and thought that the place looked interesting. However, they close between 3 and 5 PM on Saturdays so we had to come back an hour later. Which we did, and at that time there was a small...More

I have to admit, I never thought one of the best Crawfish boils I ever ate would be on the lower East side. My family of five were deliciously stuffed with a boil that had crawfish, shrimp, snow crab, clams, corn and potatoes in a...More

This place is my favourite place to eat in NYC. The food is amazing, the happy hour special is the best and the drinks are excellent. If you like seafood, this is the place to be. The service is not the greatest but the food...More

Wow! We had a fantastic evening at Claw Daddy! We had adult Capri suns and shared a crawfish and crab leg broil which was incredible - one of the best meals I have ever had and I would recommend to anyone visiting the city!

This east of 1st Avenue restaurant has great character, a fun and extensive menu of crabs, oysters and other dishes with a definite Southern twist, cocktails in adult Capri Sun style bags, plastic bibs and plenty to eat and talk. A find.

Bursting with an amazing array of sights, sounds, and
smells on every block, a visit to Chinatown feels like
entering a different world. It’s a colorful spectacle
that gets even more crowded on weekends, when families
