Going to this restaurant was truly a unique experience. Their method of serving food was different -we ate off chopping boards. It was exciting-we enjoyed the seafeast combos that included 2 types of crabs, mussels,clams and shrimps. The value was both from the experience and the food.

They had the place blazing hot in winter so it was uncomfortable, otherwise the food was good but service took awhile. Also in a great spot on the pier but is blocked by construction to be ready to walk the detour to get there. I wasn't impressed.

Forget about how your mother taught you how to properly use your spoon and fork and never pick at your food with your fingers. Be prepared to get dirty and dig in with your fingers. Don't worry, you can always wash your hands later, plus, the place provide bibs so your clothes are protected. This is truly a seafood festival.... More

Our favourite Restaurant "Elliot's" was closed due to construction work so we decided to give the Crab Pot a chance. The place is obviously preferred by many locals so we had to wait for about 40 minutes but the food was worth the waiting. Those who like crab should try the different "fests" on the menu. Also the rack of... More

This place is cool. Came here with wife and two young kids. We had a feast of crab and appetizers. Got the cool crab hats, bibs, and loads of food. The kids loved it. The crab was really good. The place was large and busy, but the servers didn't miss a beat - they were on it.

This is a fun restaurant, but noisy and messy. Be prepared to eat with your fingers! There is lots to see and enjoy: food, scenery, and watching how other people respond to the crab!

I am not a crab and oyster fan like the rest of my family, so I go with them just for the fun of it. I love seeing my grand kids cracking crabs and digging out the meat. I always take lots of pictures because these times won't last forever. My 8 year old grand thinks he's the best mallet... More

Love to visit this place a few times a year. Never disappointing and always fun. It is definitely not fine dining but the food is always good and the service is always adequate. They literally bring the food out in a bucket and dump it on the paper table cloth. You eat it right from the table top. No dishes... More

My wife and I just returned from a short Seattle vacation. My wife is a seafood-a-holick and we live in Arizona, so she does not get to indulge very often. We had seen the crab pot on Bizarre foods and the wife went crazy, so it was an easy destination choice. It was all we expected plus. Remember it is... More
