So, it's a shack with counter service. I didn't think the price for a whole crab was bad at all, I've paid more for worse. It was fresh and not over steamed. Great flavor! The crab bisque was very good, not the best I've had, but still good. $8 for a cup was probably higher than it was worth, but tasty. The counter lady was very nice and informed us that we could eat it under the covered area at the restaurant instead of the picnic tables. I think they are all owned and operated by the same folks and this was a nicer option. Good view looking out and heat lamps in case it was cold. Well worth it, especially for a Dungeness lover.

My mouth was watering as I waited for my crab in a bag and my lobster bisque. It was over-priced but I didn't care.

The lades was extremely nice, even when some people were extremely rude to them as they waited in line. No one deserves rudeness.

I was very disappointed, but my crab was over done. I wouldn't eat there again because of my experience.

Crab was fantastic but pricey. Enjoyed the food. Small place but you really only go for the crab. Most people eat outside at the picnic table. Nice views of the cruise ship in the water.

Kind of expensive but the crab legs were so good, and the soup was delicious too. Enjoyed sitting outside eating the great king crab legs.

I think that my King Crab had been steaming for a bit too long, mushy...took it to the other end of the pier and ate it in a different restaurant because of the rain. The facility is outdoor seating only. On the other hand, my spouse said that the Dungeness Crab was the most amazing that he ever had.
