Claws and Beamers (Restaurant)

All owned by the same family.  Claws Outdoors has seating located on the Quay and food is served from a kiosk on the Quay.  Claws Indoors is opposite and tends to be open during the day, a better choice than Claws Outdoors if the weather isn’t great!  Beamers is next to Claws Indoors and is a great evening option.  All serve great seafood.
