House of Crab Restaurant Strategy Overview

In Cooking Fever's House of Crab restaurant, you will enjoy preparing the King Crab legs and tuna,  and treat your customers with Boston Cream Pie.  You'll be offering an assortment of sides, including corn, lettuce, asparagus, zucchini, potatoes, and marinara sauce.  They'll also have 4 varieties of juices to choose from.  Brighten up your restaurant with superb decorations and upgrades to make your visitors happy.

Like the Seafood restaurant in the City, it is pretty difficult to spot when the crab is completely cooked, making it easy to overcook.   So keeping a close eye on your cooking pots is key, because throwing away food is expensive.

See the Strategy and Upgrade Tips at the bottom of this page for more insider tricks to passing levels.

Level Guide

Use this level guide to help develop your playing strategy. 

Number of Guests - This number can be an indicator of how much people will order and what they may be ordering.  After Level 15, a low number of guests might mean that they will be ordering multiple menu items or it could be an indicator that there won't be enough earnings to get 3 stars unless you hand out treats or increase the price of the popular items.  A high number of guests might be an indicator that many guests will be just ordering beverages or an add-on item instead of the main dishes.

First Orders - These are the first food items that customers will be ordering when the Level starts.  There is a slight delay before the first customer shows up, so use this information to prepare their orders in advance and get a jump start on the level.

Popular Foods - These are menu items that are ordered often during the level.  Prepare these items in advance and store them on your Tabletop or on warmers so that they are ready to hand out as soon as they are ordered.  Upgrading these items before starting the level can also increase your level earnings.

Noteworthy - This is extra information that might be helpful during the level.

Strategy and Upgrade Tips

  • Upgraded ingredients earn more.  But burning them costs more as well.
  • It will be fairly difficult to get past the first five levels without upgrading the primary appliances and interior items.  Keep all four customer slots filled with money until you are ready to serve the next customer, then remove only one slot of money at a time.
  • If you have enough gems, upgrade your Crab Pot, Tabletop, and Grapefruit Juice Dispenser to Level 1 when you start the game.
