Crabby's Restaurant in Downtown Huntington Beach, Calif.


Huntington Beach, Calif.--Crabby's Boat House is quite casual and fun. The bar and  restaurant combines indoor and outdoor dining with cocktail sipping, beer drinking and seafood and steak meals. Casual faire and pricing is the standard here. There is no live music played (save that for the upstairs bar at Hurricanes, or across the street at Gallaghers Pub & Grill. Crabby's if fairly small, but it's popularity is huge.


I've tried the clam chowder soup, which was pretty good. I went one day to the see the crab races that they used to offer once a week. Their daily events now include one day of people watching, one day of taco specials, an Italian night, and other seasonal offerings.


Prices are mid-range, and the menu includes clams and mussels lab tested to be guaranteed free of bacteria, exceeding national standards for such fish. Check for specials that are actually a heck of a deal. If you stick with the specials, you'll save a lot of money.


Location: 200 Main Street, Huntington Beach, CA (located on Walnut near city garage entrance). Open daily Noon to 2 a.m. Call: (714) 969-3772.
