The crab portion is about 6 ounces. Oyster crackers, lemon, and packaged cocktail sauce is included. The price is $14.00. Great for a taste but you would 4 or more to make a meal!

This was a great deal, a sour dough bread bowl with crab soup and it was very good. We split this for part of our dinner and it was just enough. They offer many other great seafood sandwiches as well. This was basically a street vendor with no seating but seats across the street, but too many vagrants for me.

The atmosphere here is great and one to experience. Needless to say fishy. Consequently probably one of the best for shell fish lovers. In all honesty wasted on me. Could not stand the smell, therefore did not taste the dishes.

If you are limited for time and the queue at Boudin's is too much to handle then stop by here for some great and inexpensive chowder. They do crab also. It's right opposite the Fisherman's Wharf sign so you can get in the photo opportunity as well.

I ordered a shrimp and crab cup for $10.25 and thought is was good. I like that Guardino's gives customers cocktail sauce and melted butter.
