Anyone who does not knows Bellevue will find this waterfront restaurant hard to find. It is on Lake Bellevue east of I-405 and between NE 8th and 12th. The deck is built, as many other buildings are out over this small lake with fountains in the middle. As others have said, the place is famous for its multi-person feasts which... More

Let's be real clear here. This place is FAMOUS for the way they serve seafood. It's different than most people have eaten it but is SO fun. The Crab Pot (a chain of 4 or 5 West Coast eateries) does seafood right. Order one of the feasts for $18-$50 per person (depending on the mix of crab, crab legs, shell... More

5 years a go we went to our first Crab Pot in Seattle. We loved the fun atmosphere. The crabs and shrimp were delicious. This year we made a return trip to the northwest and had to go back to the Crab Pot. This time we chose the Bellevue location. It was easier to get to from the north where... More

Dropped in at lunch after a harbor cruise. Short wait, lots of choice on the menu. Had the clam chowder, excellent, and the crab melt, just OK (a bit greasy). Saw people order the feature items, just dump the bowl on the table and go at it, lots of food.

Big selection on crab meals but I can’t comment on anything but the Alaskan King crab because, really guys, why would you order anything else. I mean, until we eat the King crab out of existence, what’s the point of ordering Queen, Snow or Dungeness crab? Really…King is the only thing to eat and the Crab Pot is definitely the... More

Love the building on the piers. The skewered shrimp were very good. The deep fried plate was not good, everything was overdone. Stick with broiled or charbroiled. Next time trying the melting pots. A fun place to go.

We went in a large group. Except for one person in the group, everyone else got the Alaskan Seafest! Wow, the amount of seafood they give you is amazing! I am glad I didn't order an appetizer or gorge myself on bread. Clams, mussels, Alaskan crab, Dungeness crab, chorizo sausage, corn on the cob, and shrimp. I had to take... More

I went here with some friends, and it was a lot of fun. They bring out these buckets of crab, oysters, clams, corn on the cob, potatoes, shrimp, and sausage, and dump it on the table. You tie a bib on, and dive in. The food was good, and the experience was neat.

My husband and I visited over Memorial Day weekend. I have been several times but it was his first visit. The service was very good but the food was disappointing. The shrimp, crab and corn on the cob were all over-cooked and reminded me more of buffet food...not nearly as good as my past visits.
