Great experience for one time only. If you're a crab lover, you will not like here. But if you do not get crab easily where you're from, you would like the experience here since it is unique to this restaurant.

We ate here on a Saturday night. When we arrived we were told there was a 45 minute wait and were brought to the waiting area to order drinks. We waited less than 10 minutes and were brought into a half-empty restaurant. We couldn't help thinking that this was a sort of scam designed to get you spending at the... More

The food was okay, certainly not great. Service was prompt and friendly. Ambiance was simple but lacking the charm of a rustic crab shack restaurant and bar. The price was fair considering the food. Don't regret going, but wouldn't go again.

See food is really fresh and has a wonderful taste. Serving will make you smile: no plates just a paper cover on the table and your server will put your food on the table/paper and you eat it from there :)

It's not easy finding good places to eat that are also truly family friendly. Luckily for us, our old fave is very kid-friendly, and we love coming here with our baby who really gets a kick out of seeing all the food poured on the table, etc. Nice to be at a place where they *expect* you to be messy...

You will have to wait over 30 minutes to get a table, but the wait is worthy ;) Dont spend your time just sitting waiting for your name to be called, instead go around the place, visit the other restaurants, go outside and ride...

See my review of the Crab Pot in Bellevue. I highly recommend going to the Crab Pot and ordering the Alaskan at least once in your life. It is an experience. But stay away from the one on the pier during any time close to dinner. Ridiculous lineups year round, even during construction of the new seawall. The Bellevue one... More
