    Grab a $6 crab sandwich and sit outside in the sun. That sandwich will taste sweeter than any crab sandwich you've ever eaten.

    While all the big restaurants close early, this little place stays open 'til late at night. The food is very good! I've tried the Bay Shrimp & Scallops Fettucine and loved it. Best of all: low prices.

    Be careful with the lobster bisque and the Neptune salad found many shells and bones, I understand to a point, there shouldn't be that many

    U should try nicks's bouillabaisse.. It cost you 29.9$ but it's worth trying. :)

    Staff is not so friendly. Calamari was terrible - not fried to the correct point, turned out to be a chewing gum. Tip is a mandatory 15% and included in the check. Try the crab chowder soup - just per

    The best clam chowder I've ever had!

    Food was excellent and very you'd expect of seafood in San Francisco.

    Crab chowder is disappointing...

    Save your money. Lobster bisque has tons of shells in it, the crab cake was undercooked and hardly filled with meat, and the chowder wasn't that great either.

    Regular, overpriced sandwiches. Go for the crab soup.

    Good food and good service but be careful they may tell you a cheaper price outside to reel you in then charge you a higher price inside:(

    Clam chowder was great but the service could've been better.

    You could bypass this place easily: not fancy, nothing special and so on. But the food was awesome and the staff very friendly. Loved the pasta with garlic sauced jumbo shrimps!

    Food was ok, service mediocre, basically a tourist trap; don't do sit down, eat outside

    crab chowder n lobster bisque was a joke - go to another stand or restaurant. it is crowded because tourists eat here and we dont know any better.

    Don't eat here. Just don't. I got sick eating 1/3 of the oyster po-boy after we made the mandatory Fisherman's Wharf stop while on business for one of the people who have never been to SF...

    I came to eat alone at a busy time. The staff was quick to seat me ( even though only a big table was available) the service and food were the best I have experienced in California.
