The food is the highlight here and although its pricey, its worth it. The server on this occasion was trying to up sell everything far too aggressively and he came off like a used car salesman instead of a guide to a great experience.
Come for crab and leave happy. I get cravings regularly and its consistently delicious.

Great but the reservation system...
Great restaurant, great food. But open table reservationsystem did not give us the reservation time whichwe wanted even the restaurant were half empty.That was the downside of this reservation system.Other than that, this restaurant was great.

Due to an accident on the bridge, we arrived 15 minutes late for our reservation. They gladly accommodated us and even gave us a window table with a beautiful view. Our wait staff was prompt and extremely courteous. The food was excellent as always!

Very fun place right on the pier. The crab was very tasty. Made reservations way in advance and we were seated at a prime table at the window. Pricey but worth it.

Hooked on Killer Crab
Get the Killer Crab, lotsa crab, the best roasted garlic crab period!!! My son and I come here every quarter and we drive from South Bay up for our crab fix.

The Shrimp and Crab Louie
The Shrimp and Crab Louie was supreme, I highly recommend it!! My sister had the shrimp and they were super fantastic!! A great place to eat when in SF!!!

Our server was excellent.
Our server was excellent. She was so patient with us as we arrived in stages and I had to leave for about 20 minutes before ordering. She didn't even bat an eye. The house wine was better than expected and the food was mostly good. The crab will worth ordering. The Crab Enchilada's were good but the fish and chips was a bit heavy with breading and a little greasy. Although a little on the expensive side for lunch this is one of the better restaurants on Pier 39.

Crab House was very nice loved all the food, would recommend to anyone who loves seasfood.

This is my favorite place
This is my favorite place to go after a day of sightseeing with out of town guests. They love the view and the cute crabs feel like a perfect way to end a day. Plus, it's just yummy.

Great restaurant for garlic
Great restaurant for garlic lovers like myself! Crab was delicious as was the fresh bread and the garlic fries!! Had a window seat with a city view and a view of the Warf. Left feeling very satisfied!
4/25/2013 4:00:00 PM
Perfect for us
It was perfect for our romantic diner for my birthday.
Nice view the bay and the Golden Gate Bridge during sunset.
The boss and the waitress were very nice and the food very good!
I recommend !

For delicious, scrumptous
For delicious, scrumptous dungeness crab, come to the Crab House. This place rocks!
5/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
I came here for the crabs and wasn' disappointed. I could have eaten two of them because they were so delicious and it's fun to crack them.
5/30/2013 4:00:00 PM
I took my mom there for her 51st birthday and everything was wonderful, from the service, food and the time we had to wait to be seated. I also had my 10 year daughter with me and she loved it

I ordered the full crab and it was hot, delicious and juicy in the secret garlic sauce. If I was in the area, I would definitely try it again.

Best crab I ever had! Fun
Best crab I ever had! Fun environment. Even though I am from San Francisco, eating at Crab House makes you feel like a tourist. One of the best restaurants at Pier 39
6/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
The Dungeness Crab was absolutely KILLER. The secret recipe for the crab really works for this finger lickin' great meal. This is a favorite restaurant of ours.
6/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
This food was the best that I had during my stay in San Fran. The Crab Enchilada was out of this world! The coating on the Fish and Chicken was great. And the Crab Chowder was the best chowder I've tasted. I will not hesitate to return to this restaurant.
6/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Crab House was crowed when I was there. It is really very popular. Food is good, though a bit salty! The dessert is delicious, I cannot help missing it!
6/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
We are local residents in Sausalito and make our way over the bay to the Crab House every time we want phenomenal crab. The crab chowder is light and delicious. The crab stands by itself in flavor and quality. Perfect every time! We unfortunately got stuck in traffic with the holiday weekend and the America's Cup and showed up for our reservations 45 minutes late. The host said not a problem and was glad to see that we could make it. He sat us in 5 minutes with a full restaurant! The service is always friendly and helpful!
7/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
A must have dining experience!
The food was I great, I had the whole grab which was fresh in addition to appropriately prepared and my significant other had the filet mignon with shrimp that we both absolutely loved! The filet mignon was better than most steak houses I have experienced and the crab was unexplainably delicious! My significant other doesn't even like seafood and this was her first time trying crab and she already wants to make another trip from San Diego back to the Crabhouse at Pier 39 in San Francisco for another dining experience. l look forward to many more trips there. I would advise anyone to make reservations ahead of time because business is booming there and the wait can be long.
7/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
we had the whole roasted crab
we had the whole roasted crab which was very good. the garlic noodles were also excellent with tons of garlic. wish they gave more noodles. if you are in a group of 4, order two garlic noodle dishes. for those who like to eat the shell inners, you can't get it. they served the crab with the shell but it's only for looks to complete the dish as a whole crab but the inners are gone and you can't even ask for it. he Italian cheesecake was also very good and not heavy like New York cheesecake. definitely would recommend this restaurant.
7/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
The skillet platter with the double crab and double mussels where fantastic. The garlic fries were yummy. Would say this is a definite place to go on Pier 39. Been at others and no comparison...the skillet platter is huge.
7/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
ask for suggestion and recommendation before ordering

The food and presentation
The food and presentation were both amazing as well as delicious.
7/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
decidewhat you want
Has great seafood. It is noisey, over crowded and has all the problems that causes with restroms. Service is great and the view from the windows can be wonderful.

Aloha Crab House!
The Crab House has become a family tradition on our San Francisco visits, for our last meal in the city. Our food server, PATRICK, was very attentive and gracious. We love crab and with Patrick's suggestion, we ordered 2 whole crabs to share among 3 of us. The restaurant is basic in design and it's all about the food. The dungeness crabs in garlic butter sauce was very tasty and plentiful. The food was so delicious and plentiful, there was no room for dessert! Overall a very nice way to end our visit with a walk through Pier 39 and dinner at the Crab House, San Francisco!
8/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Killer crab for sure!!
Our family of four might have stayed all day and eaten ourselves to death on the crab... If we had unlimited funds... Amazing killer crabs and hands down the best garlic fries we've ever eaten anywhere. Loved the ambiance - sat next to the window and watched a lone sea lion in the water - so cool. Sat right down with our lunch reservation - perfect timing, great location at pier 39. Even the kids meal chicken breasts were delicious and made from scratch. Yum!
8/7/2013 5:00:00 PM
Best crabs I've ever had...
My father was a Greek fisherman and so I grew up eating crabs and have eaten them everywhere. These topped all of my past experiences. The waitreess was uninformed so ask a lot of questions!! We had told her we wanted whole crabs and asked for a particular dish that is lised in the whole crab section of the menu. She did not tell us that that particular dish was whole crab that was broken up already, which ruins the fun of eating whole crab. She refused to exchange the dish so we had to order a whole crab as well.
8/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
BEST CRABS EVER!!!
This is my fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh, eighth...times trying the crabs here!! IT IS THE BEST & TO DIE FOR ~
The crabs are freshly prepared and very well marinated, then fried and served on a hot plate!! Smell so.....good!! I brought friends here every time & never disappoints!! This time there were three of us and we ordered the feast which is enough for four people ~ I was totally stuffed but still keep eating until every piece is GONE!!!
MUST VISIT & MUST TRY!!!!! YOU'LL LOVE IT!!!!!
8/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
We always go back!!
The food is always good! the service is hit or miss but not with the bus boys, they're usually on top of it.
8/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great seafood with a great view
The crab legs and mussels were very fresh and tasty. The view of the bay was a perfect compliment to our meal.
8/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Service was absolutely warm and kind crab is an experience not to loose in SF and I think this is onr of the best place in town. Shower and laundry are needed after dinner!

Crab House at Pier 39
We enjoyed our dinner at Crab House at Pier 39!
Pro: Food and service was very good.
Con: The restaurant and its tables were small/cramped, and the restaurant was very noisy. Floor was slippery.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
what a crab!!!
Lovely crab whit a super sauce!! Friendly people good stay! In Pier 39
8/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Had Christmas dinner in 2004, and had a beautiful meal and vowed when our next visit San Francisco we would dine at the Crab House. As it happen to be my partners birthday I couldn't thing of a better part to celebrate it this time without the kids. The easy of booking on line and the friendly staff on arrival and of course the beautiful crab, made the experience a birthday to savour. We will be back
8/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
The crab chowder and crab alfredo pasta was tasty!
8/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great service, outstanding food, awesome atmosphere. Will be back
8/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
I reserved 5:30 at the ocean view for our anniversary.
Even we were at 5:10 there welcome us friendly towards the fantastic place!
We two first ordered beer and wine and ordered iron-skillet roasted combo for appetizer and lotsa crab for main dinner,
the food was fantastic as we ad expected.
However, the service was just okay, he seemed busy all the time (even it was not super busy) and he did not even take the
disposable apron on for us. (Except us, he did it for every single one around us..)
But it's okay.
I will definitely visit again if I go to San Francisco later!
9/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
a repeat performance
Our favorite restaurant on Pier 39. They did not disappoint and we look forward to our next visit!
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Damn good garlic noodles
I cam here for its famous garlic noodles. I was on a business trip and traveled alone, which means I couldn't possibly enjoy the famous huge killer crab. So I chose my noodles going with crab. It came with a plain looking and at the first glance I couldn't find the crab. Actually, the crab was torn into small pieces and resembled cheese! It wasn't cheese of course. Taste divine. The herbal flavor worked just right with plenty of garlic. The texture of hand made noodle was perfectly cooked right. Will come again.
10/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
YOU HAVE TO GET CRABS!
The best crab we ever ate and the garlic butter on it....OMG I want to bathe in it!
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Exceptional food, crab was best ever, must be visited in every Frisco trip
10/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best crab ever
I had eaten twice at this restaurant 5 years ago, for the Crab specialty, and I came back with great expectations... I wasn't disappointed!! This crab is the best ever and I went twice, again.... It seems every time I will be in SF I will eat there!
10/25/2013 5:00:00 PM
Good Food, Great Service
We ate at the Crab House on a Sat. in November. It was a beautiful day and we had great views of both the water and the city. The service was great, food came out quickly and was good. We came for the crab. It was good, but prefer to not have so much butter.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Excellent place to visit.
We don't live in California and it is a most place to go when visiting San Francisco. Great food, nice service.
