Foursquare Tips

  • this place is a bit fishy - paper plates, plastic cups, bread and crackers in tupperware on tables. seafood- eh. keep this place in your back pocket for a quick lunch and NOT a dinner date -overrated.
  • Crab Cooker has a great fish market atmosphere, like an East Coast crab shack. Make sure to try the crab chowder! The food is pricey, but well worth it. -Lynne Curtin, Real Housewives of Orange Count
  • Get the chowder, and add some of their homemade oyster crackers!
  • Try the Companions meal its really delicious.. one of the best seafood restaurant in the area has been open for 65 years
  • Best seafood in Newport Beach, totally!
  • I hear the shrimp is amazing
  • Great king crab prawns, scallops, lobsters.... well everything :)
  • A little pricey to be served with paper and plastic. And the food is just ok. I guess it's true what they say.... location, location, location is the most important thing for success.
  • over-rated and over-priced. I'm so bummed.
  • Make sure to grab a jawbreaker on the way out & send a few postcards to your friends~they will happily supply the postage! :)
  • Despite the fish market appearance, we had consistently low quality fish throughout our table meals.
  • Food was ok, prices higher than expected.
  • La comida excelente. Sopa de mariscos muy buena y el salmon atlanta delicioso. Lo recomiendo
  • Get the chowder and add some of their homemade oyster crackers. It is delicious! Don't forget to send a postcard home to a friend.
  • Small menu, which is nice for a place like this. Fast service, good fish. Lunch special of the day is a good option if you want great seafood for a good price.
  • Was expecting so much more. Just mediocre. The red clam chowder wasn't all that and the coleslaw had onions in it! Yuck.
  • Best Manhattan clam chowder and love the Cole slaw
  • By definition, red clam chowder is a stew and not a chowder at all. Crab Cooker , your title of world's best clam chowder is revoked!
  • Try the Crabs!
  • Worth the trip.... Crab cakes, bread bowl & Chowder, Scallops.... and of course the bread sticks and balls!!!
