My daughter and I visited Craw Station and had no idea what to expect. It is in a strip mall and has few tables. The wait staff was friendly and knowledgeable. I had the crawfish boil and my daughter had the Louisiana shrimp boil. The helping size was large and so delicious. Once again, such a great surprise in a... More

We had a reservation which they only accept for after 8:30 but still had to wait half an hour to get a table. The service then was slow so we were among the last to leave the place. The food was ok though we avoided the messy stuff.

Chill place. Cajun shrimp and crabs. The cajun fries are good as well. The gumbo was just ok. This is not a first date place. You will need the bib!

For $76 you get two dungeness crabs cooked any way you want. We chose spicy and that is what we got. The crabs comes boiled in the bag with its sauce, which makes for pretty messy cracking and eating. We also had the garlic noodles ($13), which was good but seemed expensively for a medium size plate of noodles and... More

Based on two visits, one good, the other just average, i would say Craw Station has a bit of a consistency problem. Still, it might be worth a try if you are in the sunset area and want to partake in some spicy seafood. Our fried oysters were very good to excellent one visit, and average at bit and even... More

My husband and I went last Saturday. He ordered the crawfish, I had the $45 crab dinner. There are four levels of spice that can come with the crab. Our server kindly informed me that even their "lemon pepper" seasoning was spicy, and boy was she right. I love spice, but all we tasted was pepper. It was ridiculous. And... More

My girl cousins and I visited this place 2 days in a row! It's not as authentic as being at my mom's in Louisiana, but very tasty and prices are reasonable. The restaurant is small and quirky,but service was always good for us both nights. We had wings, garlic butter crawfish, and a pound of crawfish in cajun house seasoning... More

If you are looking for authentic Cajun or Creole food, this is not the place. However, it's a cool place to kick back and grab a beverage and the chicken wings are delicious.

Small place, probably good to have a reservation during busy times. We got a called 4 hours before our reservations to let us know that fresh crab would not be available and ask if we wanted to reconsider. We were very appreciative and impressed by this. We were going for crawfish and shrimp anyway. I had the shrimp in house... More

In San Francisco with a couple of friends from out of town. We stayed in the Inner Sunset and ate out every night around 9th and Irving. This was our best meal. We did not eat a crab as while they looked yummey, they were $40 each (which sadly is about the normal price around town). However we were very... More
