We found this place as we ate our way down the whole California coast. You can just tell when a restaurant knows their stuff. It was all top notch. I had the Wahoo Ono steamed (could have used some more seasoning but some salt fixed that up) and my husband had the shrimp enchaladas.... even the corn tortillas popped with flavor.

Best seafood place EVER! They dump the food right onto your table and you can make as big of a mess as you want. It was by far the best tasting seafood we've ever had. The service is fast, attentive and very knowledgable in the different meals and types of crab. We had a server who was only there for 4 days and he impressed us. The prices were a but steep, but it is WELL WORTH the money.

The only downfall is they are a little over priced. But it is a fun place to go. We have gone 6 years in a row for my daughters birthday. We all love it. It is a lot of fun when you take someone that doesn't like to eat with their fingers, as they do dump it on the table. It's all finger foods. Except like the salad or soups. They have a really great salad that they add crab too. So yummmers. You have to try this place for yourself. Take a lot of money though as it is around $100 for 2 people.

The Cracked Crab is a great local place to go if you are in the mood for seafood. They bring you a bucket of crab and dump it in the middle of your table...and of course provide you with the necessary tools with which to eat it. They have cute souvenir t-shirts, too.

Once again, went to this highly recommended restaurant while on a spring vacation. They do not accept reservations. We had eleven in our party. It was a Friday night. Upon arriving, realized they were really too small and crowded to accommodate a party of that size. Nevertheless, we stayed because some people in our party really wanted to try the crab. We waited at least an hour, outside, and it was chilly that night. There was one bench with a heater overhead. They pulled three or four tables together and we were seated. It was very noisy - could hardly hear the person speaking next to me. Lighting was very dim; old overhead lighting. Very pricey so ordered fish (but it was halibut) and chips. My fries and fish were overcooked; coleslaw was excellent. My husband ordered the only steak they had (a small sirloin). He was hungry an hour later. Some in our party were very happy with what they ordered; some were not.

This place has a VERY friendly and family atmosphere. The customer service is EXCELLENT, because the waiter is attentative to your needs. It is fun to eat at this restaurant, because they put butcher paper on your table and dump your steamed seafood on the center of the table for all to grab, shell, and enjoy.

Editorial from

Evoking an authentic seaside crab boil, the Cracked Crab's signature dish is actually a bucket---a big ol' pot of delights dumped out onto the table where you can have at it with the appropriate tools while wearing a big white plastic bib.…
