We went there for the 1st time on Saturday, October 12. We both had the fried scallops, shrimp and clam strips with the Maryland Crab Soup and the New England Clam Chowder. Where have they been all of my life. Fresh seafood that doesn't break your wallet and is very tasteful. We are going back on Saturday, October 19. My new favorite seafood place.

Dungeness Crabs were excellent cannot wait to go back food and service were excellent. Meet a gentleman who drove down from Brooklyn, NY. And he said it was his 2nd trip of that week will be back soon.

Saturday (3/10/12), my father and I drove 4 hours to get there. The most delicious crabs I have ever eaten. I've been three times to Joe's Crabshack and they don't even come close. The Dungeneous Crabs w/ Shrimp in the Old Bay Sauce is to die for. The soups ... well .. I can't wait to come back. If there was a bus from New York City to the Blue Claw, I'd be there every week.

Drove to BCS&CE today from Red Bank, worth the drive! I am a southerner from Savannah Ga who was raised off of blue claw crabs because they were so plentiful and reasonably priced. I tell ya I haven't had blue crabs like these since I left the south! Not even in Virginia! The service was a little slow at first but WOW I am impressed! Food Network should really come send Guy Feti to check this place out!!!

I love this place, the crabs are big, there clean, and seasoned to perfection. Always a relaxed atmosphere, and the staff is always friendly. I recommend Blue Claw to everyone.

My family and I are always searching for the best all you can eat crab place. Just by accident I came across the Blue Claw Crab Eatery so we made a reservation. We finally found the best place for crabs. The service was quick. The workers were polite and a great atmosphere for adults and kids. We started with the most amazing tasting fries and moved on to the Blue crabs. Those crabs are huge, filling, and the meat just melts in your mouth. It is really cool to drink out of the mason jar glass. I have to say very clever. One thing I would suggest is putting a grip on the glass. It gets mighty slippery wiyh all that delicious butter. My kids enjoyed the cute bibs you get. We were sad to leave, but very full and happy. I would recommend this place to everybody. I'm trying to get my husband to take me back for my birthday. All I have to say it's a good thing I don't live down the street I would be there everyday!

Well I just had my first visit to the Blue Claw Eatery and I must admit that even though the All U Can Eat Hardshells were probably the most expensive that I have ever paid anywhere both in New Jersey or Philly, The taste and the quality of the crabs by far make up for the expense. They are delicious having them old style with the old bay or having them garlic style and plenty of garlic I might add. Yummy!!! They give you a plastic bib so you don't have to worry about messing up your clothes which you will need with the garlic crabs. Again Yummy! The place seems very friendly and the waitresses are eager to please you. I also liked that I wasn't judged or given any dirty looks when I ate 38 of those freakin delicious crabs. OMG! I can't wait to go back there. I'm practically salivating now while I'm writing this Hahaha! I would definitely recommend this place if you don't mind the price, but it truly is worth it. Oh keep in mind that if your coming from Philly and you take the Burlington route and you reach the destination by your GPS at 4494 on Route 130. Surprise!! It's not there!! But if you continue about less then 1/4 mile. Hello Blue Claw!!!! I found you! LOL!

I have eaten crabs at numerous places, but no place will every top Blue Claw. I wear an old T-shirt I don't have tthe worry or concern of dropping/dripping butter, oldbay and of course garlic.. I making myself hungry just thinking about it.

Everytime I travel down to South Jersey I eat at the BCSCE! I love this place! CRABS and more CRABS! I love the atmosphere and the service too. I wish they would open the same restaurant in NYC!

I've Eatten here a number of times and there is NO BETTER garlic crabs then the blue claw make, They are the BEST you'll ever eat. Just keep in mind the season. They only can accomodate what the seasons sizes wiil be but their the best regardless

I love this place! Freshest seafood around, you can really tell. Their crabs are out of this world and the garlic and old bay makes a perfect touch! I love the fact that they clean your crabs and it is also byob. Very small place but the staff is so nice. You can tell they really care about their customers. My wife and I usually stop in on a Tuesday and Ashley is normally our server. She is so sweet and always takes such great care of us! I strongly recommend this place!

This is ABSOLUTLEY, the best place for crabs..My husbnd and I come all the way from Delaware to eat here. Delaware has crab houses, but Blue Claw is the only place that ALWAYS has crabs all year round, and I am the type of person who could eat crabs everyday. I have been going to blue claw for years and have never had a bad experience, it can get crowded, but everyone is so into the food that once you get started on your own food it doesnt even bother you any more. For Xmas and birthdays I tell people to get me gift certificates from blue claw, they are ABSOLUTLEY the BEST!!!

Been to all the crab places in Baltimore. Obrycki's is my favorite. Obrycki's has nothing on this place I kid you not. The crabs are superb. Cooked perfectly. Have 'em clean or dirty with any combination of Old Bay, Garlic, or Cayenne. Love the fact that it's BYOB too. Saves on the bill and let's me choose my own poison. The menu is filled with plenty of other items but I never look at it. Just tell me what size blues you have thank you very much. Oh and the hush puppies are the bomb too. Gets crowded. Go early and don't wait!

stumbled across this place on the internet looking for somewhere to feed my blue crab addiction.we use to think all you can eat blue crabs were only at the shore during the summer but now we know different.the restaurant is a little on the small side but we didnt have any problem getting seated right away.lots on the menu but we were there only for blue crabs and they were great.seasoned just right for my taste(old bay for me)and there already cleaned for you.the waitresses very nice and had refills at the ready.i still hit up the crab house down at the shore but i have found off season fix and will return.

My husband and I ate here for the 1st time 2 weeks ago and when the waitress took my order she asked how I wanted my crabs, I said "like Chickie and Pete's" I have to say...They were better than Chickie's and I can't wait to go back. I have told several people about this place and will be back very soon. Its well worth the trip to NJ.

This is by far our favorite seafood restaurant! The crabs are always great as is the service! We tell all of our friends about it.

I love this place...don't want crabs from anywhere else. Always, fresh, hot and yummy. The garlic sauce is my fav...don't change a thing!!!!!

Best crabs I've ever eaten. I cook crabs every year but from now on I think I'll be buying your crabs whenever I get a craving. I really enjoyed the jumbos I had and look forward to returning soon!

The place is the absolute best Crab Eatery that I know of. I know of people who travel from Northeast Philadelphia to enjoy the seafood. I don't mind the 45 minute commute either and I'm from South Jersey. There is no such thing as "out of season" when it comes to Blue Claw Seafood and Crab Eatery.
