    Fresh seafood on a rooftop overlooking the Red Hook docks. Fun to try the extensive hot sauce collection and get messy with a bucket of crab

    Awesome service and great food. Only get the pot of crabs if you're willing to work to eat

    Love this place! Kind of pricey, but great place for good food and good times. Love the BK Steam Pot! Beware of long waits during summer.

    Calling all Canadians: the Bloody Breuklen is essentially a Caesar. Get it with spicy habanero tequila - amazing.

    Not super crowded for a sunny, warm Sunday and everyone working there was incredibly nice. I recommend the cold platter with spicy shrimp. Can take the ikea water taxi to get there easier.

    Lots of beer on tap, corn hole, delicious seafood, MINI GOLF! What else do you need? And it's across the street from Fairway, so you can go grocery shopping after you feast.

    Stake out your spot by the games in the back if you're feeling competitive. If not, grab a table up top for the best waterfront views.

    Don't be to ask if you don't know proper technique for crab destruction. Do it right, you'll have a great time. And get the watermelon lime cocktail!

    If you have a shellfish allergy eat some Lobster but bring your epi pen & stab it in your leg then say "Hey everyone! Now this place is called Brooklyn Stab!!"

    Mini golf while you wait for a table. Or belly-up to the upstairs bar, sip a (huge) frozen pina colada, and enjoy the view.

    Crabs galore! Great chillout beach vibe, delicious food, and beautiful views of the bay.

    oysters are good and the view is appealing but the clam chowder is all potatoes and flour while their version of fish and chips is definitely pretty poor, as are the crab cakes.

    The Crab has two full bars replete with specialty cocktails and frozen drinks and a postcard-worthy southwest-facing vantage on the Hudson River Bay.

    Great spot for groups when the weather is nice. Lots of outdoor games to keep everyone entertained. Can't speak to seafood quality, but the drink menu is okay.

    Good summer spot, when your with a group. shareable portions, good drink selection great scenic view. Parking in the area was the only hassle.

    My advice: kick bk w/drinks & cold/raw platters on their 1st flr deck, & change to the upper deck for sunset. You'll be drunk & soaking it all up by then!

    The piña coladas come in those neon colored plastic tubes and are crazy delicious. It's probably the pound of sugar in each.

    Grab a half dozen oysters, the blue crab roll, and a Blue Point Summer Ale. Great summer lunch.

    Mac and cheese and corn are totally worthy the $$ as a nice extra or side. Great atmosphere and wait staff. Always a fun time.

    The second floor bar on the left offers views of the water and the most comfortable atmosphere but unfortunately is closed in by windows.

    Came at 4 with the kids on a Wednesday and had the whole mini-golf course to ourselves. Finished up with an early dinner on the upper deck. Great kids' menu! Don't bother with the fake lemonade.

    Great place to grab a drink on a warm day. Can turn into a mad house though, and take forever to get a drink.

    To suggest getting the crab roll rather than the crab legs. Less work and you get more meat.

    The Cajun crab is the bomb.com...melted butter will make you cry (in a good way that is)

    Red Hook by the water + Key West styled bar/resto = transport to a foreign land. Food is solid and libations plenty. Get one of their crab rolls!

    Come for the views of the bay and an afternoon drink. The food just good enough to keep you sober-ish.

    Come for the drinks, games and ambiance, but eat next door at Hometown BBQ. View from the top deck is ridiculous.

    Table by window obviously. If there is no wait, the service is good. The blue crab and fried shrimp were excellent.

    Fork over your paycheck for the blue crabs. Just do it. And make sure to play in the backyard.
