Fisherman's Wharf Crab Stands information
Brawny-armed men stir steaming cauldrons of Dungeness crab at several side-by-side take-away crab stands at the foot of Taylor St, the epicenter of Fisherman's Wharf. Crab season typically runs winter through spring, but you'll find shrimp and other seafood year-round.
Instead of dining on the giant, noisy, crowded plaza, either head east along the waterfront to the Pier 43 Promenade to find benches where you can sit; or if you don't mind standing to eat, look behind the crab stalls, between 8 and 9 Fisherman's Wharf, for swinging glass doors marked 'Passageway to the Boats' and amble out the docks to eat in view of the boats that hauled in your lunch.
