    There can be a long wait here, so while you wait for your table, play a game of mini golf. Come during the summer, snag a table on the deck, and chow down on some awesome oysters and crab cakes.

    Perfect daytime outdoor drinking spot. Mini golf, corn hole, fake sand, and buckets of beer ($25 for 5). Solid but pricey seafood. $1 oyster happy hour all Monday and Tuesday.

    Three tier place with a variety of delicious seafood options, punch bowls and frozen drinks, and a park in the back filled with mini golf and other games to play. Get the large piña colada and enjoy!

    Delicious oysters, stew pot and crab cakes topped by a Bloody Mary with rosemary vodka & an oyster on top. Great service and really friendly staff. Easily fill an afternoon with food, cornhole & golf

    It has a spectacular view u can see Statue of Liberty facing u from the terrace. Service was excellent food is so good & fresh specially the crab rolls. My only concern was tables sanitation.

    Get nice and buzzed playing corn-hole then go out back & crush some crab. I wish NYC had more crab shacks like this. It's worth noting that the "side of coleslaw" w/ the crab is embarrassingly small.

    The food here is exceptionally delicious. We ordered king crab royal for 2. Crab legs, lobster, shrimp, fries, corn on the cob & cole slaw. Can't go wrong with this option. The food is Amazing !!

    It boasts patios at different levels, several bars featuring beer and mixed drinks, and a menu heavy on seafood. Crab claws, shrimp cocktails, and raw oysters are all specialties. Read more

    Sit on the deck, look out over the water, and grab a frozen piña colada. Imagine Jimmy Buffet is sitting next to you. Red Hook is the new Bahamas.

    Great food, great drinks, great location! Crab rolls and popcorn shrimp are stellar. I highly recommend the Bloody Breuklen (a Bloody Caesar w an oyster on top!) Big backyard + free mini-golf too!

    Favs: Oysters, Maryland blue crabs w/ old bay, the spicy pot (shown below). The mac & cheese was good. All the crab legs were awesome.

    What's not to love? This is the best Red Hook experience. Relaxed, casual, a great place to bring the kids and enjoy some drinks & games. Loved the chilled Jonah roll. No better place @ sunset.

    Awesome 3 story crab shack with plenty of sunny spots to have a drink and take in the water views, indoors and out. Can't wait to come back during summer

    Don't expect big appetizers than you can share everything is well portions. The calamari is prob the best I ever had. The crab cakes were good as well but definatly order sides if u need a lol more.

    A bit of a trek and a bit of a trendy scene, but the food is actually quite excellent. Biggest hits for the group were the Peel N' Eat Shrimp and Dungeness Crab Boil. WinstonWanders.com

    Don't leave your tab open here. If you do, they'll use your credit card details to make purchases all over town. Has happened to friends and myself recently.

    Such a groovy place! Chill with friends or family friendly. Old school, casual, seafood spot. Lobster roll was banging. Mini golf and other games are icing on this cake- plus free ferry from DT!

    Food is amazing. Go for the soft shell crab sandwich. Don't wait for a table - find a spot at the bar and eat there on a crowded weekend day.

    The ambiance is amazing!!! 3 floors of open air space. Casual dining with a nice size menu selection. The entire staff was very friendly and accommodating!

    Insane view, fantastic lobster rolls and awesome oyster specials. Blue crabs are delicious but not for amateur crab aficionados. Take the ikea ferry across and enjoy every moment. Summer favorite.

    This tri-level seafood shack in Red Hook serves up a delicious selection of shellfish dishes, but we love it for the speciality cocktails, beers on tap and impressive water views.

    The service was great. Bartender with the partial dreads I cool as hell. And the food was simply to die for, more than I could bargain for. The full bar was also a hit. A must try in my book.

    The bloody breucklen is SO DELICIOUS. Any of the crab rolls are good and we also liked the cornbread and crispy shrimp.

    Nice place, very good food but a bit expensive. We tested the crabcakes amazing but 35$ for a starter and 25$ for the crab roll with chips - is a bit expensive even the quality is here

    Great seafood and great cocktails so much fun we loved it. Red Hook is kinda like Hackney Wick, there's a ton of cool bars and restaurants around that area too.

    After a ride on the 6, F, & their courtesy shuttle from Carroll Gdns stop, it was still a 2-hr wait...even after a friendly Samaritan gave up her spot on wait list for us.

    Great atmosphere, decent food, but be prepared for a long wait - so get a drink from the bar downstairs and play cornhole or relax at a picnic table with your friends

    Wait for a table outside on the deck. The view is worth the wait. While you wait order apps and drinks in the back garden.

    Long wait during summer. But worth the wait. Definitely sit upstairs for open windows. Coming during the fall is nice too!

    The crowds are a bit intense, and the staff vibe is a little Applebees-y, but the setting and the view can't be beat. Plus the food is pretty good. Also: cornhole.

    Owner Rachel was nice, always a neat touch when the proprietor comes and greets guests. Good prices and GREAT seafood, some of the best peel-n-eat shrimp and lobster I've had.

    Great view from the deck. Seared scallops w/ bacon & kale were great, as was mac n cheese w/ lobster. Still working some kinks out with the service. A little pricey, but good food & good times.

    Delicious seafood, if you like shellfish (crab, lobster, etc.) And a beautiful view of the water, the sunset (if dining in the evening) and of the Statue of Liberty.

    Great place to hang out, relax and grab some raw bar. Habanero Margarita is addictive. Mussels, Peel n' Eat, and Cool Platter are satisfying. Staff is friendly and the place is wonderfully built.

    If it's a sunny day, and you feeling being around a nautical setting, Brooklyn Crab is the place to be. Get a bucket of beers and enjoy a game of mini golf or corn hole with your friends.

    This place was on our list for the longest time. Nice vibe. Get the Alaskan King Crab. Avoid the soft shell crab sandwich; it was really oily.

    You'll be steaming glad you went here. Get the Brooklyn Crab Royale for two--serves 3 if you add a side or two. Cornhole while you wait.
