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

We were staying in Weymouth last weekend and dropped in at The Crab House Cafe towards the end of lunchtime service without a booking. We were shown to a lovely table with a great view of Chesil Beach. The setting is lovely. The place is literally like a sort of tumbledown fishing shack, which is delightful and not at all... More

Definitely one of my favorite seafood restaurants. Excellent, fresh produce served in very unpretentious surroundings.

We turned up without reservation, a family group of 11, including 5 kids. We were initially turned away, but as it was sunny late October day, we were seated outside, and warned there would be a 20 minute wait to order. Drinks orders were taken and after they were served, food order was taken promptly, and arrived without the expected... More

Had a wonderful meal, the service was fast and the staff very friendly. I had the Oysters with Pesto and Parmesan, the salted tasted complimented really well the cooked oysters followed by Sand Sole with crayfish butter, the portion was big but so delicious it was hard to stop. My husband ordered the crab remoulade, the celeriac was strong in... More
