Situated in a small but very nice seaside city called La Jolla just 15 miles from San Diego. Last year I visited first time. This time I brought there my family too. We all loved it . Good for private dining also. Sting at a Pacific Ocean view table and eating crab legs from North Sea is priceless. If you go to San Diego for some reason, go visit La Jolla and this restaurant.

Great food in lovely location. Took my parents here and they were suitably impressed. Great for special occasions.

I asked for a table with a nice view and they did not disappoint. Even more important, the food was very good. I had the bone-in ribeye and my husband had the scallops. I was hesitant to order a steak at a seafood restaurant, but it was cooked to perfection. It was pared with mashed potatoes and asparagus. They were OK, but the vegetables kept this restaurant from getting a 5 rating. They need to put a little more flair to their vegetables. My husband loved his scallops. The keylime pie was a good way to end the meal.

We stopped at Crab Catcher for lunch while waiting to check in to our hotel. The outdoor dining had a great view, the menu with a good variety of options for lunch at fairly high (but expected) La Jolla prices. The service was prompt and friendly. Definitely would go back.

This restraunt has an Elegant setting yet a casual European vibe. If you like king crab you must try the king crab special for two;)!
