We were seated immediately, which we appreciated as we had a reservation for 6 people. The server was good and knowledgeable about food. The food wasn’t overpriced and was really good. The view was beautiful from our table.

Crab House is one of our favorite restaurants in San Francisco. The garlic crab is delicious and cioppino too. We have never been disappointed with any of their food. It is kid friendly and the kids enjoy eating crab with their hands! It's a must visit restaurant in SF!

Overall I love the place but the only thing was that I had to wait 20 minutes after the reservation that I made a week prior

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.
