Along with the crabs, we also had a dozen of steamed clams, fried shrimp (unbreaded) and the most amazing crab meat soup ever! The souvenir hammer to crack open the crabs was a perfect... More

This is a family owned restaurant that was totally worth the money. An array of seafood plus all you can eat crabs for $30 per person. Service was wonderful!

We were looking for a quick bite before we hit the beach. This place was close to our hotel and it was crowded. That's always a good sign for me. I had the decadent soft shell crabs and my husband had the crab cake basket w/ fries. They were both delicious! This is a casual outdoor spot, but a real... More

At On the Bay,crabs are always sweet, perfectly steamed, and well seasoned. Rob and Rosemary will only sell... More

Great service, price and food. One of our "must go" places in OC. The all you can eat is good but by the bushel works for most groups.

My husband is a big fan of the older crab places on OC, as am I but I was willing to stretch out and try a new place. On the Bay Seafood was the perfect choice. We did have to wait about 20 minutes. But it was the season so that's not bad. They have a different system where you... More
