Dungeness Crab-The Restaurant Version-Prices/Preps

I thought I'd start a thread to cover this season's Dungeness crab as served in restaurants rather than purchased live. There seems to be a thread for roasted crab, but not for other preps.
Two days ago I dropped by Bay Fund Tong in Oakland for lunchtime crab. I got a medium-sized crab, well-filled out, salt and pepper style. It was done perfectly, moist and sweet, and the seasoning didn't overwhelm the delicate flavoring. Best part was the price--$9.99. Most tables seemed to have the lobster special on it--they had large ones for (I think) $10.99 per lb., but smaller ones, with noodles, for only 8-9 dollars total. I came for crab though, and did not leave disappointed.
This place is bare bones, and I've had mixed opinions in the past, but I'd say they are solid with fresh seafood, and prices are generally very fair.
