Fancy crab, well we did and wanted it prepared the way we like it. These folks did and it was fresh and delicious. Prices reasonable.
The place was crowded, but that didn't handicap their service.
Wonderful service (with a smile) and very helpful in giving you their input to what they would eat if you asked for a suggestion.
If you want a clambake well you're in for a treat. They dump all the shellfish on the table like a giant mound. Don't worry it's on a sheet of paper, so the tablecloths don't get messy. Never had a bad meal. Very friendly server.

Unpretentious yet consummately professional execution of the art of seafood. On the ocean with no view and no frills this eatery delivers what any serious gourmet is constantly seeking - Fantastic flavour, fresh and scrumptious. Not cheap but fantastic value. If you love seafood you must go.

Stopped by the Cracked Crab based on the TripAdvisor rating and was not dissapointed. Several of my work colleagues came along and each had a different meal. I had the Seafood pasta filled with crab and shrimp and they filled it full. I ended up leaving noodles in the bowl and just ate the large portions of crab and shrimp. Another person in my party has the seafood enchilladas and could not stop raving about them. I will come back when in Pismo Beach.
