Was tempted to try Crabby Jim's after sampling the clam chowder offered outside while strolling Fishermans Wharf. Ordered clam chowder in a bread bowl once we were seated and was not disappointed. Fresh sour dough bread and a piping hot serving of their chowder made for a super filling lunch. Service was very slow however and actually saw two tables of guests leave after waiting more than20 minutes for waiter to take their order. Chowder was quick but that was probably because it is made way ahead of time.

Crabby Jim's offers a large range of choice on its menu, and all four members of my party were more than satisfied with their choice. The seafood is clearly freshly and locally sourced, and the menu also offers a range of Mexican dishes which are highly recommended. The service was a little slow, however that can be justified by the number of diners- a clear reflection of the restaurant's popularity.

Table by the window was delightful. Clam chowder was yummy.

My deep fried seafood platter was just okay. Nothing special by any means. My husband's seafood taco meal got off to a rough beginning with stale chips. The seafood itself was, again, just okay.

We felt a tad rushed though there was no one waiting. The table bussing staff removed items before we were finished.

We are not local, thus returning not an option.

We had a really good clam chowder and seafood platter. The wait staff was great. The price reasonable.

After sampling so many clam chowders from various restaurants at Fisherman's Wharf we (around 13 of us) decided to eat here based on the taste. It's great clam chowder soups but other food weren't as great. They gave away free calamaries which was okay. My mahi mahi fish was a little overcooked and very little seasoning. My vegetables were okay. Maybe it's just me but was very surprised they wouldn't split the bill into 4. I don't understand why 3 is the max.
