Neat Atmosphere

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!

This is a simple family place with not much on the menu but fresh seafood. The signature dish is a huge pile of seafood (clams, mussels, crab, shrimp, corn, potatoes) that they literally pour out onto the table. They put down a sheet of clean paper and dump it right in front of you. Unless you are going to order... More

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
