We love Weymouth and there is a lot of good restaurants but this place was everything we hoped for and more. With a very hard to please husband (he was a chef and we were in the trade for 15 years) it is more than a little tricky to find somewhere that gives us all that warm and fuzzy feeling... More

There is nothing to fault here - the food, service, menu is fab - lots of choice and something for none fish eaters as well. The atmosphere is special with the chefs cooking in an open plan kitchen within the dining area. The new cook book is also well worth a look - making the cooking of fish very accessible,... More

The food is of consistently high quality here where you have crab or not. I did have crab and it was delicious. Served with all implements to ensure a clean and enjoyable meal. The desserts were equally delicious! It was full and is easy to see why it is so popular. Staff are charming and quick to explain how to... More

We live locally to the Crab House Cafe and only tend to visit it once in a blue moon partially because of how expensive it is but don't let the price put you off, with a wonderful view out over the fleet on one side of you and either a fish tank or the open kitchen/fish counter on the other...

We had difficulty getting in as this place is so popular - once you go there you know why. Really fresh and delicious food, great fun atmosphere and well worth the visit. Best and freshest sea food served in a relaxing atmosphers. Book your visit and enjoy!

Visited the Crab House twice now, the guys in our party had loads of fun eating crab with various tools you would find in a garden shed. Muscles were superb. Everything cooked fresh for an amazing fish counter on full display. Get there early to ensure you get a full benefit of the specials menus, the best items run out... More

My partner and I went here and HE had an excellent meal but I do think they they need to appreciate not all couples have the same taste in food . I accept being vegetarian frequently means my choices are Minimal but these days feel restaurants should have some imagination !! Before our meal we had lovely rustic bread with... More

Some friends of ours took us here - it was awesome and there was an accompanying wine tasting. Next time I'm in the area I will be back, best seafood ever.

Went to this restaurant early on Saturday evening last week with my sisters. The staff were lovely and on chatting to the chef abut the shellfish and crabs, he took us to see the 'wet room' where the line lobsters and crabs are kept. He helpfully told us about their ethical and humane methods of putting the lobsters and crabs... More

I love fish in a seaside setting. This was my second visit to the crab restaurant. In the winter I was told there is rarely a need to book a table on weekdays (and it's open Wednesday to Sunday). In the summer it is apparently extremely busy (the waitress informed). We reserved a table in the window about 2 hours... More
