Dine in an idyllic ambience overlooking the Portland coast in relaxed, unpretentious surroundings, savour the finest flavours... Discover the hidden pearl of the South West.
Lovely evening with beautifully cooked fish. We enjoyed all our food. A better description of the fish fritters would have changed the choice. A little heavy for my husband but only as it filled him up quicker! We will return definitely, thank you to serving staff who were very attentive and helpful.
Been coming here for several years and never been disappointed!! but very disappointed with our visit this time. Excellent food and drinks but not told that the lunch menu was so expensive when we ate off mainly the ala carte!! Also not told only 4 people could pay on a card also not good .Please let Nigel be aware of this and also Wil your Chef as his Aunty was in our party!!
Lovely food and atmosphere and we had a great time. It is not cheap but well worth the money. We had to wait a bit for our drinks but it was a very pleasant lunch and made our trip to Dorset very memorable. Will definitely come back.
Superbe food and service.
Relaxed atmosphere, amazing fresh seafood cooked perfectly
Dinner at the Crab House has become almost an annual event for my wife’s birthday and we love it. The food as always was excellent (especially my scallops!) and Nigel was as friendly and cheerful as ever. Only minor comment would be that there were some young staff who didn’t perhaps represent the passion and knowledge that pervades most of the staff. We’ll be back!
Lovely food, extremely tasty, great service, will be returning, thank you for a lovely experience crab house cafe:)
Just fab! Best oysters We have ever eaten!
Great vibe as ever
The food was delicious, but on this occasion the service let it down.
See you next year. Thank you Nigel!
Food was excellent only thing wrong was the waiting staff forgot to bring out cracking tools for the wife eating lobster .
A 5* MEAL EVERYTIME.
Enjoyed the experience and the food. Expensive but you get what you pay for Very good.
Excellent fish restaurant and consistently so.
Restaurant was very busy outside and in hence why service was slower than previous visits Won’t stop us returning as we love the crab
Service was slow, when we were waited on it seemed rushed. Also I informed someone via email that it was my fiancé’s 26th birthday that day and I was told we would be given a glass of Prosecco when we arrived. This did not happen and I was going to question it but again, the waiters and waitresses seemed to be rushing.
A really special dining experience , especially on a sunny afternoon sitting outside overlooking Chesil Beach. Relaxed and informal service by friendly staff, very good selection of fish dishes and very nice selection of wines by the glass. Highly recommended and will certainly be returning
Great food, inconsistent service. Passing us by to take the order for people who arrived after us and 40 mins wait for coffee is bad. The staff were nice but it all seemed haphazard. We were asked by one waiter if we wanted to order desert, 5 mins after another had just cleared our desert plates away.
Highly recommend crab house the service ,team and food are excellent look forward to coming back in October
The monk fish that my wife and I had was a taste sensation. Thank you Crab House Cafe.
More specials boards would be useful, especially if sitting outside.
Fabulous setting with the freshest of local produce well done Crab Shack.
Our second visit and better than ever.
Oysters and crab were amazing. Friendly staff. Hope to return soon.
