Lavallette’s Crab’s Claw Inn Still Delivers Old School Jersey Shore Charm and Experience

1 min read

LAVALLETTE, NJ – When you walk into the Crab’s Claw Inn in Lavallette, you feel like you’re stepping back in time to a period when the Jersey Shore experience was dominated by mom and pops and not the Kushners, Jenkinsons, and other major corporate entities.

While much of the Jersey Shore is being overcommercialized from Long Branch to Asbury Park to Atlantic City, you can step back in time at the Crab’s Claw Inn. Remodeled after Superstorm Sandy, the inside of the Crab’s Claw is just what you would expect from any notable Jersey Shore Seafood Restaurant.

On any given night, the locals playing video poker at the bar dominate the scene, giving diners the comfortable feeling that they’re just background actors in a daily small-town cheers-like television show that airs every single night of the week.

The menu is packed full of seafood platters, daily specials, apps, and more that you would expect at any top-shelf Jersey Shore destination restaurant, such as the ones you find scattered across the Wildwoods.

Here just a few other reasons to visit the Crab’s Claw Inn before our locals-only season ends next week.

There is a full 99-cent beer menu. The daily specials menu offers up $20 three-course meals. A packed entertainment schedule includes live music every weekend. Wednesday night Bingo and Thursday night Karaoke. Did we mention prime rib night?
