Wonderful dining experience.

We liked the huge pot of steamed seafood including crab, shrimp, clams and mussels, with corn, potatoes and sausage. It is our grand-daughter's favorite so we enjoy the feast. They were doing some kind of road construction that day so the place wasn't full, but we had nice seats on the lake.

Very good food, large quantity - the two of us could have split the fish and chips and ordered a side salad for lunch. The location, on the water, was an added +. The only reason it won't be a regular place to eat is the expense.

A groups of ladies having lunch, this was a practical place to go. This is a chain, but our service was great and the seafood fresh. I had the bucket of steamed clams and they were good. The served fresh bread with our food. We all had a variety of dishes and everyone seemed to enjoy their lunch.

So we didn't not make it into Seattle in time before the mariners game to do our usual stop at the downtown Crab pot so we decided to try the Bellevue location on our way out of town the next day for the first time. We walked in at about 1:00 on Sunday afternoon and half the restaurant was empty... More

I love this place. I have had the best King Crab Legs, here. Great service, but the place could use more lighting in the dinning room.

Or find a new manager. We have walked out for the second and last time. This time there was two greeters at the front desk and after sitting in the bar for over five minutes think one of them could bring a glass of water? Dream on! We saw a glimpse of the bartender but he never appeared again to... More

The food and service was good but i can't wait for Elliotts to open up again. This place is much more casual and family oriented.

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.

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 the food for twice the price at the acclaimed... More
