Combined Suggestions, San Francisco: 46 reviews and 26 photos
From Shrimp Louis to Dungeness Crab, San Francisco's Touristy Fisherman's Wharf is known for its fresh seafood. But the big sign overlooking the tourist parking lot gives a clue to which is most important sea food here. Both signs feature the distinctive shape of Dungeness crab, one of the treasures of the West Coast fish market, and the symbol of the Golden Gate fishing industry. But for a cheaper version of the Dungeness crabs for locals like me, buy it at Costco where the price is 50 to 75% cheaper than here in touristy Fisherman's Wharf! The Sea Food Stalls here lined Beach Street and beyond and most are branches of the renowned seafood restaurants of the area lioke Alioto's, The Franciscan Restaurant, Fisherman's Grotto, Crab house at Pier 39 and more. The seafood stalls outside although expensive for locals is still cheaper than dining inside the Fisherman's Wharf Restaurants!
Favorite Dish: Dungeness Crabs usually runs from $9.00 per pound to almost $15 per pound, here at the Fisherman's Wharf while in Costco it is just $ 5.99 a pound). Eating Dungeness Crabs here at the Wharf is a Certified Tourist Trap but however, sometimes it is wort the effort to go here as the ambiance is perfect while gorging on sea foods like the crabs or the clam chowder or the oysters or steamers and more. A small cup of Clam Chowder here costs $ 5.99 and a pint at $ 9.99. Shucked Oysters at $ 15.99 for half a dozen and the steamed or Broiled Lobster will cost you $ 21.99 a pound. I know these are restaurant prices for mere food stalls but again this is the most touristy area of San Francisco Remember!
