    I visit shaking crab Clifton often. It is way better than other shaking crabs I’ve been too. The food never disappoints and the service and drinks are good.

    Food was great, and it wasn’t busy at all so it felt like we had the whole restaurant to ourselves which we loved. I would recommend to anyone!

    Very small portions and the food was mushy/overcooked. You can’t charge that much for seafood and then mess it up.

    The server was a little rude I think she was a little overwhelmed she didn’t explained the concept to us so we had to watch other people eating and then eat like them so we made the best of it . The food was good very tasty and food value for what we got .
