Beautiful food - especially the crab and lobster. Wonderful service from the owner and her team. This was our second visit and will definitely book again next time we're in Wells.

Simply can't beat the Wells Crab House. Amazing selection of first class food, beautifully prepared and served. Kelly & Scott have a gem of place that shouldn't be missed. Kelly's knowledge of what is in every dish is a fantastic benefit as our kids are dairy & gluten intolerant but Kelly and Scott go out of their way to make sure they are well catered for. Honestly couldn't recommend them highly enough and it is also brilliant value for money. Why go anywhere else.

Enjoyed a superb "big one" seafood platter with my son. My second visit, and I can thoroughly recommend this fantastic restaurant.

My husband and I enjoyed a rare 'date night' at the Crab House while on holiday recently and were thoroughly impressed with everything from the welcome upon arrival, the decor, the attentive service throughout our meal and the food! The menu was innovative and appealing and our meals were fresh and very delicious. I can't recommend the Crab House enough. Very impressed.

Wonderful evening, fabulous food and excellent service. Friendly and efficient. Will definitely return. It would have been perfect if the lights were slightly less bright and maybe a candle on the table, but other than that I would highly recommend visiting.

Pros - Kelly very friendly and welcoming - good location for Wells next to the sea - good selection of wine and gin Cons - In comparison to last year the fish seemed inferior - one meal had to be sent back and then replacement also wasn’t up to standard

So lovely to see Kelly and Scott again. It is always a terrific meal at the Crab House. It was also so considerate for them to make a Mac'n'Cheese especially for our son. He loved it. Can't wait to come back again soon.
