Cuisine: Crab & Seafood

Description & Atmosphere
If you love Dungeness Crab, you won't want to miss a meal at Pier 39's popular Crab House — it's home to the world-famous Dungeness Killer Crab Roasted in a Secret Garlic Sauce (pictured right) ... and it's to-die-for!

OK... so it may be a little touristy given the location (Pier 39's upper west deck), but the casual-style eatery offers delicious seafood at moderate prices (and great SF Bay views) — it's a FUN place to take your out-of-town guests or clients when visiting San Francisco.

The Crab Roasted in Garlic Sauce is our favorite menu item — it's a little messy to eat, but it's worth it (bibs, napkins and wipes are provided).

The Crab Feast for 4 (pictured above and top right) is ideal to split when dining with another couple (again, if you don't mind the mess). Crusty bread is served on the side to soak up all the yummy garlic sauce. And the Crab Chowder (pictured right) makes a hearty and tasty appetizer.

Other menu standouts include a variety of delicious Crab and Seafood entrees — and Iron-Skillet dishes, including combinations of Mussels, Crab and Shrimp. Enjoy a Tureen of Crab Cioppino, Clams, Shrimp, or Mixed Seafood Stew. Fresh Salads, Pastas and a Prix Fixe menu is also offered (prix fixe menu includes salad and Tiramisu dessert).

Mojito Bar
Enjoy a variety of beverages including Mojitos, Cocktails, Champagne, Red & White Wines and Beer.

Pier 39 and Sea Lions
Walk off your meal around Pier 39 — it's home to fun specialty shops, restaurants and cafes, a carousel, arcades, street performers, and San Francisco's famous Sea Lions. We like walking out to the end of Pier 39 overlooking SF Bay to watch the Ferry Boats, sailboats, speedboats and check out the amazing views of Alcatraz and the Golden Gate Bridge.
