Overrated, overpriced, but then that’s Fishermans Wharf I guess.

Let me start by saying you couldn't find better buttery roasted crab anywhere, the Crab Feast is our family favorite! It comes on a sizzling elevated platter, fresh crab roasted to perfection. We order extra butter caper sauce on the side for dipping, it is beyond delicious. We always start with their Caesar salad, big enough for 2 to share. This particular evening we dined was on Valentine's day and it was not very full or very loud, when the restaurant is full it can be quite lively and loud. But you get a great view, they validate parking (only 1 hour) and our server was excellent, in fact all staff were attentive, friendly and constantly clearing which was much appreciated. Pricey with drinks as would be expected at the Pier but you are getting a great dining experience. Make a reservation, they can have a line out the door. We have been coming here for years, they have crab shells, all dressed or styled differently on the walls and hanging from the ceiling, a fun decor touch to a traditional San Francisco atmosphere.

Food was great as usual, but thr service wasn’t. We were never checked on and we had to get up to ask for whatever from the bar (our waiter all of a sudden turned into the bartender) I left a good tip just bc that is the type of person I am, but it definitely wasn’t deserved. You guys charge a pretty penny for food, and the food is worth it. Just match the service. I’ll recommend for food but will definitely tell of our experience with the service. It was also Valentines day. That put a little damper on it.

Food was average and way too expensive. The crab was a little dry and the sauce ltoo greasy. The crab chowder was a little too rich.

An experience, unfortunately we have had our tastebuds spoilt by the seafood we get in Guernsey in the Channel Islands. This is the first Resturant of this type in this area so have able to make a comparison, however, we would recommend it as and experience if a touch on the expensive side.

Excellent as always. It was very busy but we had a reservation and were able to be seated early. The food arrived quickly, arrived hot, and as always the crab was delicious! It’s definitely pricey but for a once in a while crab feast it’s hard to beat Crab House.

Great place for a whole crab dinner. If you get two or more, they serve it on a sizzling platter which allows you to dip the crab in the garlic butter-outstanding! Only negative is they do not serve sourdough bread. Service was fantastic.
