Very, very good seafood

Every time we visit Seattle we have to have a meal here. We love the most expensive seafood meal where the pour all of the seafood, potatoes, and corn on the table. They give you big bibs cause this is "hands-on" type of eating. There interior of kind of old and worn out but the food is well... read more

Super slow service. Stood at the host stand for 5 mins. Then sat with no waters or drinks for 10 mins, before anyone even came to take the order. Food was okay, more than enough for the two of us but not impressed. Deck was old, dirty and spider webbed. Yuck.

We love the Crab Pot on the waterfront in Seattle. We had lunch a couple weeks ago and was great with good service. Unfortunately we tried the Bellevue location. Very slow service and attentiveness from the server. Ordered King Crab and was extremely disappointed in number of legs for $45. Advertised as 1.5 lbs. Plenty of butter but not enough... More

At first when we walked in we got something to eat and there was wax paper on the table. Me and my husband ordered the deep sea feast. Then they came with a huge bowl of seafood and dumped it on the table! The food was delicious. If I ever come back to Seattle I will eat here. I highly... More

We picked the Crab Pot for a late lunch because of location and had high expectations. We weren't disappointed but everything was just average.

It's been awhile but as usual service and food are excellent. Well served. We always go for the traditional bucket approach. Crab, oysters, salmon skewers and veggies. My son lives the salmon burgers. I like to sit on the terrace by the water and enjoy. Good location, good parking. Recommend.

Been at both locations a few times but with all the construction thought this location would be better. Sat outside. Very dirty. Spider webs and nests everywhere. Bread was cold in the middle. We thought the seafood was a bit overdone. Hard to get the shells off the prawns. Server forgot 2nd glass of wine. We felt we were rushed... More

The restaurant is situated overlooking a man made lake, so sitting outside on a warm day was a pleasant experience. Our waiter Caleb was really pleasant and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. As for the Alaskan seafood bucket, this was awesome, I shared with my Granddaughter who helped me polish off the lot. Other people in the party who... More

During a recent business trip to Bellevue I had the opportunity to eat at The Crab Pot. The atmosphere was great (ate outside). The wait staff was very polite and attentive. The only con would be if you want one of the special Pots, you have to bring a second person. I would have ordered one of the Pots, but... More

Visited this location with our daughter in law from Hong Kong. She loves seafood and when we walked through the restaurant her face broke into a big smile. We opted to share two orders and true to their work there was enough for three--or maybe 4 normal eaters. We had king, snow and Dungeness crabs along with oysters, mussels/ baked... More
