Pismo Beach, Shell Beach & Oceano
Enjoy fine seafood and casual style at the Cracked Crab
 Delivering fresh, local seafood in a casual atmosphere for over 20 years
The Cracked Crab has been a one-of-a-kind restaurant on the Central Coast since first opening in 1999. Visiting Pismo Beach has to include a sampling of the best the sea has to offer at the Cracked Crab.
When the original owners moved from the east coast, it quickly became apparent that a true seafood restaurant was miss- ing. Cultivating relations directly with local fishermen, farmers, and single processors, the Cracked Crab has become one of the most successful restaurants in San Luis Obispo County. It is an intimate restaurant that requires nothing more than bringing an appetite.
Executive Chef Randy Miller takes the best of what
is in season and
updates the
menu to reflect
the market.

types of the
highest quality
shellfish to dig right
into. Delicious sides made
with local ingredients accompany the trifecta to round out the meal. General Manager Jamie Habig points out, “We strive to serve the best seafood available, whether it be locally caught fish or Alaskan Crab. Much of what we serve, especially our Alaskan King Crab, is of a quality unavailable to most

   other restau- rants.”
The ingredients the Cracked
Crab chooses to
use are con- sistently of the
highest grade. The flavors of each dish
reflect their choices. For non-seafood lovers, there are plenty of entrees to please the palate from Mary’s roasted chicken dinner to Certified Angus Beef for those who crave steaks. A great local wine selection is offered to pair with the food thanks to the Cracked Crab’s direct relationships with Central Coast wineries.
Not only are the owners deeply invested in developing the best connections for the business, they take care to staff the Cracked Crab with the friendliest folks they can find. The restaurant de- pends on the customer service to help spread the success. Attentive servers help provide the comfort- able dining experience, promis- ing “The finest seafood available, served in a most casual style.” This creates the perfect place for the whole family to sit down and have an easy meal, especially after a long day on the beach.
The entire staff takes care to maintain high standards of health and cleanliness to ensure the safety of guests and staff.
