lovely traditional fresh fish restaurant, we had the oysters which were amazing, the lobster bisque to die for, we both had the monk fish curry which was lovely, we both felt it could have done with a bit more flavour in the sauce, not spice that was perfectly well balanced for the monkfish which was cooked to perfection. thank you...

we took a break after a walk and it was such a great deal. We were surrounded by plates of fresh pizza and fish. We only wanted a light snack but the food looked incredible and we plan to go back over a lunchtime when we travel to Dorset again.

Their speciality of oysters & crab are outstanding, as well as many other choices on the menu. Fun to eat too - no need for knives and forks, just dig in with the hammer and fingers. Whilst waiting for our starters, we had opportunity to glance through their cookbook. Great recipes and facts. The staff were excellent at their job... More

My family and I have been a number of times before. As ever the good was amazing. My son and I had oysters to start, au naturel and Italiano. My daughter had salted pollack hummus and my wife the lobster and crab cocktail. Whilst waiting we had a whole loaf with rape seed oil and anchovy balsamic. A definite thing... More

We just dined here again and had another fantastic meal! I had country style oysters and then Chinese spicy crab, while my wife had scallops followed by mussels. All excellent! And how many other restaurants bring you a hammer with your main?!

The Crabhouse is not cheap. However the food is always excellent the fish is amazing the menu is varied. I expect it to be between £40-£50 per head with wine but I always think it's been worth it. I can only afford to eat here occasionally as a celebration but it's the top of my list for Weymouth restaurants. Go... More

Lunch menu was tempting. Tricky to choose one dish but somehow managed to choose two different ones between us. Wonderful bread was served with flavoured oil and balsamic vinegar. Lunch was delicious, a fish with a light sauce and a fish curry. Perfect, so fresh, so nicely cooked and well flavoured. The bottled beers are local and very good, went... More

My wife took me to The Crab House for my ??th birthday treat. It was a beautiful late September day, but a bit windy to eat outside. I had a whole crab in delicious Chinese source, and covered myself, the table and most of the floor with splinters of shell. My wife had turbot which again was delicious. Extensive wine... More
