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

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.
