dungeness crab

My daughter loves crab and i'm looking for a kid friendly restaurant that serves crab legs. I also need to go somewhere that serves non seafood items like steak for my other daughter. Any options that aren't too expensive?

The terminology "crab legs" makes me think Alaskan King crab not Dungeness.

Our Dungeness is not in season so anything you find will be either frozen or flown in from elsewhere.

The edible meat in a Dungeness crab is split pretty evenly between the body and legs of the crab. This means:

1. You find Dungeness crabs on menus as either whole or half crabs (as well as various dishes using Dungeness crab meat).

2. If you see crab LEGS being offered on a menu it pretty much translates to either Snow or King crab being served. Neither is held in particularly high regard by Dungeness crab fans so you mainly expect to find it on the menus of chain restaurants, as well as restaurants who cater to the visitor trade.
