Wanted to try a local restaurant while visiting LA area. The wharf had a bunch on choices. The outside didn't seem like much, but the food was great. Our group had the snapper sandwich, shrimp scampi, and shrimp and chips.

Halibut was so amazing. Locals tell me this place is always full from open to close. I can see why just after one bite. OMG I loved it. IF you visit the USS Iowa, YOU MUST visit Crusty Crab. It was here BEFORE Sponge Bob!
