The Crabhouse is not cheap. However the food is always excellent the fish is amazing the menu is varied. I expect it to be between £40-£50 per head with wine but I always think it's been worth it. I can only afford to eat here occasionally as a celebration but it's the top of my list for Weymouth restaurants. Go... More

Lunch menu was tempting. Tricky to choose one dish but somehow managed to choose two different ones between us. Wonderful bread was served with flavoured oil and balsamic vinegar. Lunch was delicious, a fish with a light sauce and a fish curry. Perfect, so fresh, so nicely cooked and well flavoured. The bottled beers are local and very good, went... More

My wife took me to The Crab House for my ??th birthday treat. It was a beautiful late September day, but a bit windy to eat outside. I had a whole crab in delicious Chinese source, and covered myself, the table and most of the floor with splinters of shell. My wife had turbot which again was delicious. Extensive wine... More

A lovely place for lunch or snacks if doing the walk to Portland. Very cosy and welcoming. Excellent menu with really fresh fish. Worth a visit or two.

Would eat here every week if I could spare the time to drive from Blandford. This is by far the best sea food restaurant on the South coast

About seven years ago business took me to Weymouth where I was recommended to visit the Crab House by a local.. A visit that I never forgot and have been trying to arrange a return ever since. So last Friday I had the opportunity to return and it was just as good as I remembered. Our group started with the... More

The fish was not too tasty and the price does not justify it. I have not tried the crab although it looked quite fun. Nice atmosphere, you can hear people hammering along at their crabs and staff is pretty nice.

It has become a regular place for us to eat when we are in Weymouth. The choice of seafood is excellent, we had the cracked crab again and it did not disappoint. For dessert I had creme brulee which again was excellent. If you like seafood this is the place to go.
