A restaurant in the heart of tourist central that’s built like a 1960s houseboat sounds like somewhere you’d be forced to go after losing a bet. But that’s what Scoma’s is and it’s actually one of the only places in Fisherman’s Wharf where you’ll find us. The menu is full of old-school dishes like Crab Louie salad and linguine con vongole, but what you’re really here for are the clam chowder and Dungeness crab. Get it whole-roasted, and make sure to ask for bibs.
