This place is out of business and has been replaced by "Flavor" if you're looking for seafood on the coastside try either Barbara's Fish Trap or Princeton Seafood both right near by the old location for this place.

Stopped several months ago for a quick lunch. The clam chowder was horrible and the wine was just as bad. Thankfully we only had to pay for the wine. More thankfully the restaurant is closed.

This restaurant has a 180 degree view of the ocean and marina at Half Moon Bay and behind you is a 2-story, hand-painted mural of the Bay representing all forms of the wildlife there. The food was excellent, the drinks were satisfying, and the service was impeccable. No rushing you to finish your meal so that others could be seated.... More

Visited with my son for lunch on a Friday afternoon. I understand there is new management and a new chef. The location is very good, nice two level all glass with amazing view. Ordered the crab balls to start. They were good, but for five thought it was a bit expensive. My son had the crab melt, which he loved.... More

This 2 story restaurant and bar overlooks the harbor. I had the Steak salad and my husband had the clam chowder bowl and we were both very satisfied with the taste and temperature of the food. It was a little over priced, but delicious! The bread bowl that the clam chowder came in was light and fluffy, not a heavy... More

Ok, the food was fresh and frankly better then what I read from the prior reviews. The Fish&Chips had a light batter and was cooked perfectly, fish was moist without being over cooked. The cappinno had a wonderful red sauce and fresh fish, crab, scallop and mussels. And the kids had a wonderful angus beef burger. Now the service needs... More

Enjoyed a late lunch on the patio overlooking the harbor with a friend. The two of us shared an appetizer special of scallops and prawns wrapped in bacon, followed by mussels, a crab louis salad, and a glass of wine. Our very efficient serer brought out a cup of their crab bisque to try, which was absolutely delicious. A live... More

This restaurant is on its third time around and this is the worst version of them all. The food is overpriced, not very good, and the service is appalling. The only thing good about it is the location.

Our other favorite restaurants were very busy so decided to try the Crab Landing for the first time. Loved the views from the upstairs dining. Didn't understand some previous reviews about how they could do so much more. We thought the ambiance could not have been better. Very friendly and prompt service. We both enjoyed our fish lunches and thought... More
