Ordered Caesar salad and oyster Rockefeller.
Clawdaddy has a bookshelf at the back though I'm not sure if customers are allowed to read their books.
The interior is pretty and the staff were courteous.
On to the food: the salad was good, nothing special. The oyster Rockefeller's good too, I didn't swallow bits of shell unlike with other resto.

We were at Nuvali during the boyfriend's birthday and decided to eat at Clawdaddy for lunch. We really didn't know what to order so the crew suggested "Crabs by the Bucket". It consists of 4 medium size crabs, and its up to you how it will be cooked. I can't remember what we choose but i know i asked for the best seller. It was really good! It was the first time we ate crabs in a restau coz we know how messy it gets! 128517

Clawdaddy provides bibs so you won't to worry about your clothes while eating. And they have this hole in the middle of the table where the crew puts in a mini bucket. That's where you can throw all the crab shells after eating. We finished all of them after a messy combat! Haha. We also ordered fish and fries for starter, they were really good too. It was seasoned with sour cream and onion powder.

I remembered we went there at around 11am, and after a while the place is jampacked! The place has a nice interior and they have bookshelves on the other side of the restau.

We had a great time at Clawdaddy! I would love to go back there again for another taste!

Growing up to my mum's cooking, i only had one concept on how a crab should be cooked. Garlic and butter usually saves d day. But clawdaddy has a lot of ways of cooking it which i love. We tried the singaporean style and i end up eating 2 whole crabs128561 soo takaw! The place is a haven for book readers and law students who wish to have some quiet time plus they have a wide selection of literature u can read while waiting for your food. Thumbs up clawdaddy

The first (and only) time Iate here I was with my childhood sweetheart. Thing is they are not exclusively seafood as their name suggest. They serve good steaks and pasta as well. It is cozy inside since they have this big book shelf containing most of the classic literatures and NY Times Best Sellers.

We have ordered caesar salad, chicken alfredo pasta, baby back ribs, garlic rice and set of shrimp & crab.

Caesar salad was just too plain! I just hope they could have their special recipe starring their "crab". I am saying that they should have emphasized their crab in their salad. The best caesar salad I had so far is The Manila Peninsula's version starring crab meat, prawn, and crispy bacon.

Chicken alfredo pasta was very good! Creamy! It costs more or less PHP 600, good for 2-3pax.

Baby back ribs? Juicy! Super! 128077
It comes with so so potato wedges.

Set of shrimp & crab with baby potatoes, corn cab -- all were just boiled then sprinkled with hot spices. About PHP 1,700 for 6 pieces of crab and a not bad number of small to medium-sized shrimp. If opt to have it cooked/served with some sort of red sauce, you will have to pay additional PHP 400.
Sad, i was not able to take more pics, I accidentally dropped my phone. Huhu. Lost my appetite to use my phone after I saw the tiny scratch on the side.

BTW, i love the waiters, they were all smiling on the whole duration of our stay, they are courteous and friedly but they erroneosly placed the order of the other table on ours plus it took them so long to process the bill and so so so long to process payment & to provide OR.

The last time I went there, the waiters introduced and encouraged us to order from the other restaurant, JohnBamboo (Sate House by Red Krab), but this time, there's no such thing like that.

I went here with Ester after getting my new phone in Filinvest. I urged her to eat somewhere in Nuvali since I wanted to try Clawdaddy:

It gives you the comfy-ish feel from the book shelves to its wooden solid tables masked in red & white checkered cloths. We decided to dine outside so I can puff some smoke while waiting for our food.128168

Customer service was okay. The girl who assisted us was accomodating and she was able to answer my questions about their dishes. We would have appreciated if a warning was made regarding our ordered food being meant for sharing coz the servings are effin huge!128517

We already have the menu when I got reminded thaaaat! -- I don't eat crab (Toinks!128556). We settled for the following instead:

✅Grilled Salmon Fillet (495) - Served with walnut parsley rice, southern style coleslaw, mango salsa & lemon butter sauce. The salmon is tasty, well-grilled and the matrimony of coleslaw & mango salsa complemented to the salmon's delish flavor128076

✅Smoked Chicken BBQ (P360) - Half-Chicken barbeque dry rubbed, grilled and mopped with barbeque sauce. I chose dirty rice & freedom fries as sidings. This was also grilled-right and the BBQ sauce is spot on perfect. It's flavorful enough to make me think why I have to get a liver- flavored rice. The two flavors shouted the word umay as I try to finish everything on my plate. I should've asked for plain rice instead. The freedom fries kept me going though.
Btw, did you know that freedom fries was a US renaming movement in response to France's opposition to the proposed invasion of Iraq way back 2003? (The power of wiki. La lang, may masabi lang128514)

✅Tres Leches (195) - Yellow sponge cake, soaked in three kinds of milk topped with whipped cream & strawberry filling. I'd say the flavors here are well-balanced that it's neither too-sweet nor too-bland. Being a sweet-tooth that I am, I needed to include the strawberry filling on each spoon to ensure my sweet-ending.128523

To end this review, it's Good Food and Good ambience. And that will only mean another try on this resto.128077

P. S. Ester is my mother's nickname which also happens to be my term of endearment. And in case someone will react, she's oh-kay with it. 128513

Great way to spend valentines in clawdaddy nuvali. Ambiance was good. Caesars salad was just ok. Also tried their ribs-- very tasty!! Plus the typhoon shelter crab. They couldve added more garlic but it was delish. The noodles and garlic complimented well with the crab.
