Strolled down the fishermen's wharf and found this place. If you like dungenese crab, you will love this restaurant. Pretty small with only about 15 tables but sits right on the dock! Great views!

We had a very nice lunch at the Crab King. One dungeness crab steamed with lots of garlic and asian noodles. A seafood salad had shrimps and crab meat and made a nice meal for two. Service was efficient and the price was OK--not cheap....More

We almost drove into Richmond for dinner but decided to try this place because you're literally on the water. We ordered the fish and chips for the kids and between 4 adults we shared the crab platter. Best $150 we spent on the trip! We...More

Being from south Louisiana, I know seafood. First we cook seafood differently from most places in the USA. The dungeness crab was really good. The dad goes crabbing, one son cooks it, the other son is the server. The seafood chowder was good. South Louisiana...More
