Food was great, and service was extraordinarily to accommodate our special diet. Restaurant a bit noisy and very small in space that tables are adjacent to each other and chairs must pump back to back. But overall, it’s one of the best seafood restaurant on pier 39.

Loved this place! It was the first time we ever tried it. Expect to spend some money here but it is 100% WORTH IT!! My husband loved the crab legs so much ; he almost ordered another round- but we settled for the crab cakes & AMAZING! Also the shrimp, clam chowder & my sons kids chicken were all amazing. Five star reviews all around from all three of us! Only complaint is that the tables are small & basically on top of each other- but this seems to be a common theme in San Fran.

Really glad we picked Crab House from the confusing milieu in the Fisherman's Wharf area. Food was superb - crab cakes, baked Dungeness 2 lb, and fish n chips. Everything we had was very well cooked, delicious, and served quickly by friendly and responsive staff. Strong recommend.

I drive one hour at least once a month to eat dinner hear. There is nothing better than their crab, always fresh and the sauce they cook it in is fabulous. I lowered the rating this time because we ordered mussels and they were a dry. The service is always been great

I know its was mothers day but our order was not delivered right we didn't get one of the app that we ordered but was billed for. the woman's restroom was filthy . I couldn't believe how once we ordered we had to keep asking for drinks or anything else as our waitress was never around. My husband still tipped well and that's a problem he has. For a 300.00 bill I've eaten at Olive garden better.

Don’t let the secret out. This place is awesome. We drive from Auburn California just to eat here. I used to think blue crabs from Maryland could not be beat. I was wrong. Love the Crab House.

Yes!!!! We really had a wonderful time! We ordered the small cioppino (huge and delicious), crab cakes (outstanding), crab with caesar salad(yum!), the super sized crab, mussels and shrimp combination and we shared all between 4. Our out of town guests were delighted and loved every bite! We will come back for more! Our new go-to crab restaurant!

Still my favorite Carb place in the city, but last time I noticed that the crabs were cooked differently. Definitely less garlic than usual and perhaps the process has changed?
One advise to management, the waiter was great but the helpers bringing the food out don't look too happy. It some instants even mad about something.
