Reminds me of the typical Tourist trap

I had the alaskan king crabs. they were kind of expensive and not as fresh as I would have hoped for a Seattle location. I am from the east coast and often have alaskan king crab for less, and that seem fressher than what I experienced at this restaurant. They were ok, but, I can't rave about... read more

And Shrimp. I would recommend this place over most of the more expensive seafood restaurants in that same area.

We go to this restaurant every time we head to Seattle. We make sure we eat a light breakfast and lunch so we can take advantage of the bucket of crab. My advice is go easy on the bread (which is amazing) so you can eat every morsel.

Cute idea of the "pot" experience. Bummer you have to order 2 dinners when 1 is plenty for 2 to eat. Heavy on the Olde Bay seasoning. Seemed "rushed" with the service (better than slow). Appetizers were good as well. Main "pot" dinner was great and fresh. Would return again but would try other selections.

The waiter will bring a big pot of crab, shrimp, clams and other choices, together with corn on the cob and boiled potatoes, and dump it all in the middle of your table for you. You browse and pick and eat. Fun. But, the food isn't all that great. It all tasted just a little too cooked. But, the raw... More

I love seafood but have never had a crab pot boil experience before. We enjoyed a large amount of food including crab, shrimp, mussels, and sausage. There were also potatoes and corn to help fill you up. We had a party of 3 but only ordered for 2 and we all had plenty to eat. I had a long island... More

Super slow service. Stood at the host stand for 5 mins. Then sat with no waters or drinks for 10 mins, before anyone even came to take the order. Food was okay, more than enough for the two of us but not impressed. Deck was old, dirty and spider webbed. Yuck.

We love the Crab Pot on the waterfront in Seattle. We had lunch a couple weeks ago and was great with good service. Unfortunately we tried the Bellevue location. Very slow service and attentiveness from the server. Ordered King Crab and was extremely disappointed in number of legs for $45. Advertised as 1.5 lbs. Plenty of butter but not enough... More
