    Crabcatcher: Ocean Views

    We tried this place out because we wanted to sit outside and enjoy the beautiful day. My sister had a crab salad and I had the clam chowder soup. Very good. The prices were too high for my taste and quite frankly the service was terrible that day. I don't like to judge a whole restaurant because of one bad waitress. My sister was NOT happy and made sure she filled out a complaint card. Although, the little gal was nice, waitressing skills were terrible. Yet, the food was good and views were excellent.

    The Crab Catcher!: Restaurant & Seafood Grill

    The prices at Crab Catcher are high so don't expect a bargin here. Of course, you get what you pay for and there is a reason this place is so highly praised.

    Forget for a moment, the spectacular views from this rusticly constructed restaurant perched on a cliffside in La Jolla. It seems that an important reason for the popularity of Crab Catcher happens to be the fantastic fusion of flavors offered in a meal, from ingredients used to the matching of the wine.

    Though they stop lunch at three and start dinner at 5:30 pm, they offer Happy Hour from 3:00 pm to 9:00 pm.

    Favorite Dish: Making a suggestion would not be useful as they change the menu and the prices to keep their meals fresh and interesting. This is a popular place and the food is quite satisfactory.

    Adjacent to the Crab Catcher restaurant, is their Seaside Cafe which offers Oyster and Sushi bar house specialties. Not to mention Martini Thursdays!

    Address: 1298 Prospect Street

    Directions: Validated underground parking from Coast Boulevard. Take elevator to restaurant.
