"Every time I go, I tell myself I should eat there every day because I feel so good when I leave. Very few restaurants in the area (aside from ours) take the time to buy live crab, boil it, and shuck it for their salad, which is served simply on a bed of chopped iceberg lettuce. Add their simple Russian dressing and a bit of Tabasco, and I’m in heaven."
"Call me a tourist, but I like the crab Louie salad as well as a bowl of the clam chowder and the smoked salmon toast, too. I only go here when I'm with people from out of town. It reminds me of New Orleans in a lot of ways."
"They have the sweetest Dungeness crab, and they handpick all the meat from the shell right there. It's the simplest thing but hard to do. Ask for the crab back. Yum!"
