We tried to go to Elliott's but they were so completely rude we left and came here. This lil place is huge, which you would not know at a glance. The big bowls of crab, mussels, shrimp, corn etc are all the rage. We wished were hungry enough to order that....next time. We hade a nice crab... read more

The hotel at the front desk recommended this to us. there was a long line up and we waited about 30 minutes. Well worth it. The portions were a good size and the food was tasty. The service was a little slow because they were busy. No one came to check on us and we had to call them over... More

Many years ago, had one of the worst seafood meals on the Seattle waterfront. The Crab Pot was certainly a pleasant improvement. It also served as good introduction for fellow travellers who were new to the Seattle waterfront. The road construction made it hard to get to (they could have a lot better signage) but it was worth the trip.... More

Wow what a great place to enjoy a mid-day feast of seafood galore! We had crab, shrimp, fish, clams, sausage, and plenty of napkins the soups are great as well. best of all you get to eat with a wooden hammer, hearing and then tasting with every crack, food is very fresh and plenty to share, this was a very...

I first went here with friends on road trip years ago and the food location was amazing. Went back with the family to share the experience but found it had fallen off. The staff was overwhelmed with guest so they were passing off from station to station leading to some confusion. The food though had also give down a bit... More

First of all, you simply must order something that requires a bib and a hammer. Since there is construction going on it was just a tad confusing to find the Crab Pot but we sure did and loved it. We had a pot of Alaskan and Snowcrab and had such a good time hammering it open and enjoying the delicious... More

Great place to eat seafood that's located on the water front in downtown Seattle (next to the Ferris Wheel and Aquarium). The steamed mussles and crab were yummy!

We were starving for seafood and lets admit it...Seattle is expensive...but Crab Pot is worth it. Grab the $29 feast with crab, mussels and crab, and get your hands buttery and yummy. Had a 30 minute wait but it was worth it. Great service. Definite recommend

So I went to the crab pot based on co workers recommendations. The food was good but I feel like they discriminate against the solo eater. I ordered the crab pot but was told that I couldn't becuase you have to order two or more in order to get the price listed. So the waitress said that if I wanted... More
