Very nice way to enjoy seafood in Seattle

Large quantities of seafood in an entertaining ambiance. My 12 year old son really enjoys the presentation of their Seafood Feast. The staff dumps a large bowl of crab legs, sausage, corn, potatoes, shrimp, clams and mussels for all to enjoy. My Seattle friend says we could have had one quarter... read more

The ambiance is fitting for a seafood shack. Had their seafood boil for 2, but feeds 3 without feeling stuffed. Enough variety of seafood in the mix. We had to ear fast otherwise it gets cold. Only a bit disappointed with the prawns in the seafood boil cause I think they are overcooked and soggy.

The king crab sandwich was excellent. Plenty of crab on homemade ciabatta bread. Paired with a nice Bellevue IPA. Perfect for lunch. All round views of the lake.

We like this chain restaurant for two reasons - the coconut shrimp and the salmon taco's at happy hour. Add a small salad and mix fish for a full meal. Cold beer, reasonable wine. Great bar staff. Good weather (summer) outside deck experience.

Had to move quick before the food got cold. Waiter didn't bring hot butter. Good service though. Husband really enjoyed it!

Party of 8, weekday night around 7 pm, sat in corner at cramped table, but not a long wait - maybe 5 minutes. Took quite awhile for waiter to arrive and take drink order. Took awhile longer to get said drinks. Ordered appetizers and waiter forgot to bring one of them. Attention to detail, man! The crab bisque is Hideous... More

The ambience of this restaurant that has another location in Seattle port area and two others in California is of a Bistrot with old wooden tables, nothing luxury. The goody here are the specialty that is always advertised as SEAFOOD for two or more. The serving are huge and you get an apron and tools to eat crabs,mussels, shrimps and... More

We were here with a very large group of friends. The restaurant is busy, but the staff manage it well. There were tables with children of various ages about. The waiters and waitresses did a good job of getting the food out quickly. The shared bowls of seafood would be awful if cold. It's not a fancy place, and if... More

Had a daughter-and-me lunch here. Weather was warm enough to be outside by the water. She tried the shrimp tacos, which were just as she liked - served spicy and hot. I had the scallops served on a skewer, which were cooked to perfection. Not cheap for two lunches, but the food was definitely worth it.

Loved that they bring out your meal and dump it in the middle of the table. Bibs, mallet and go for it!
