Crab at Fisherman's Wharf? (Sigh)

megmosa | May 27, 2008 09:49 AM

My family is coming into town and my stepsister want crab from Fisherman's Wharf, because that is what she associates with San Francisco.

I live in the city, but normally avoid eating at or being anywhere near Fisherman's Wharf. Does anybody have any recommendations of a place that is not overly expensive that serves crab near the area? If not, can you recommend a restaurant elsewhere in San Francisco?

I was thinking of Swan Oyster Depot, which I have wanted to try, but I'm not sure we'd be able to get in there. The fam is not coming till Friday at 5:00 and are only staying for the weekend. Is it possibly to eat at Swan Oyster Depot on a Sat afternoon without waiting in line for an hour or more? I don't think my dad has ever had fresh oysters (though he eats the jarred kind), so I thought it might be fun if he could try them here.
