I had a great burgers and the best part of Friday's Crabhouse is that you can get as many toppings on your burger as you want for a really small charge. I got mine as loaded up as possible and it was really good, but...More

This was a really cool place to have lunch. There was a beautiful view of the water and you could watch the ferries come in. The food was a bit pricey for the quality but it was worth it for that amazing view.

Great place to watch harbor activity and the view. Food is overpriced, small servings, bland. Had small lunch for $26 before cost of beer. People are great. Suggest you have a beer on semi-outdoor terrace and then find better place to eat around the corner...More

We picked this place for lunch because of the nice view and reasonable menu. The staff were also quite friendly. I wish I had checked the reviews first because the food was terrible. I'd say it was a notch above ferry boat food. We had...More

This is why a person goes on vacation; incredible view, sitting in the sunshine enjoying a pretty good meal, a cold drink and an overall pleasing situation. Everyone has their own perspectives, but this place, for my wife and I anyway, was just perfect. Have...More

The setting, view, and vibe of the Crabhouse cannot be beat. I lucked out with the crab caesar salad - it was fabulous. Unfortunately, my guests were disappointed with their seafood - all fried. I love the concept of this restaurant, but they need to...More

Think upscale Skippers, with small portions of fried seafood, island prices, and forgetful servers in an outdoor dining setting. Other options: steamed shellfish bar (open shorter hours) serving clams, mussels, or cracked crab; burger & hot dog bar (also open shorter hours). Dinners generally include...More

We had lunch here. The food was truly awful! The service was terrible, very disorganized and confusing. The BBQ oysters had no flavor, the fried shrimp were hard as rocks and the halibut was rubbery. They even charge for refills on tea! The only good...More
