“Tables for Two: Brooklyn Crab” ~ By Shauna Lyon, August 27, 2012

“The haters came on early and strong for this venturesome tri-level seafood shack in Red Hook…but, if you listen to the disgruntled Yelpers, you might be deterred from a rare experience: mini-golf and beer as a prelude to fresh cold oysters and perfectly steamed lobster, eaten in the open, relatively salty air, with a killer view of New York Harbor.

“Despite some initial negative press, Brooklyn Crab continues to press on. It might just be the crowds lined up down the block, or the million dollar view of the Hudson from its sun deck on the second floor. Or, maybe it’s the seafood steam pots overflowing with lobster, blue claws and shrimps shipped in from the Gulf.

Lobster rolls, oysters on the half shell, steamed crabs, fried clams — and yes, we do want fries with that.” Read More
