Dungeness Crab: Dine at the Source

Whole crab at the Crab Pot: Restaurant in Seaview.


To enjoy crab is to enjoy life. Dungeness crab dining offers a visceral experience that satisfies every sense. From the crack of the shell to the scent of sweet meat to the soft flavor profile, crab is a culinary treat that turns meals into memories. The Long Beach Peninsula sits at the center of the Pacific Northwest’s Dungeness crab coast, where you’ll enjoy Dungeness crab fresh from the fleet, ocean-inspired art and the quintessential seaside lifestyle.

From the ports to the Pacific Ocean to the peninsula, this corner of southwest Washington is Dungeness crab central. The three major waterways surrounding the Long Beach Peninsula – the Pacific Ocean, Columbia River and Willapa Bay – produce some of the healthiest and heartiest Dungeness crab in the United States.

So, pull up a chair and dine with us. And drop a pot and fish with us. And take a piece of the Pacific Northwest’s crab country home with you.
