    The overall service was great however was expecting a little more fresh out of the seafood given its price. The crab tasted like it's been frozen for a bit and its meat was a bit dry. Rest of the food was great and the waitress was very friendly as well.

    I had family from out of town and I did the reservations on open table. I was a little early and the manager was SO NICE, he sat me down at the table and was very nice. The waiter was there asap and service was excellent while I waited for my three guest. While there I chatted with some SF residents who say they like going to the restaurant because their are NEVER any surprises and the quality of the food is always the same. Great. Thank you for this opportunity to let you know the Manager and staff are Great.

    Beautiful day in San Francisco. We dropped into Pier 39 Crab House for a nice lunch. Hostess led us to their large dining room. We sat right by the window facing the sun-tanning sea lions barking and having fun. The Golden Gate Bridge was in the background. Ferry cruise boats were cruising around routinely. Tourists were everywhere. Great place for people watching. Had Crab Chowder as an appetizer. It was filled with crab meat and potatoes..scrumptious! Shared a whole 2+ pounds Dungeness Crab; garlicky and tasty..price is good for Fisherman's Wharf area. Next, we ordered the Sea Bass which was filet and pan roasted. It was very good and cooked perfectly. It also comes with one side: Sauteed Mixed Vegetables, French Fries or Acini de Pepe Pasta. I asked our waiter exactly what is 'acini de pepe pasta' and he returns with a small cupful for me to sample. The acini de pepe pasta serves with sundried tomatoes and snap peas. These are tiny round pasta served cold and flavorful. Service was immaculate. Good portions and this was a satisfying and enjoyable meal. Waiter was professional and knowledgeable. I was impressed with his attentiveness and efficiency. Our waiter was exceptional. He cares for his diners. I'll definitely be back!

    In my opinion this is the best sea food restaurant in San Francisco. I’ve been coming to this restaurant since I was a kid. It is truly my favorite seafood restaurant. My wife and I come here a least once a year for Thanksgiving.

    Very nice view from almost any table. Service was very good and the staff is friendly. Noise level is fairly high. Not the most fancy place but still great lunch outing. Very expensive, $150.00 for lunch for two. The food is very good.
