Arrived early on a Friday afternoon and avoided the rush. Our waitress Nickie only had two other tables and was able to make our dining experience seem special. We ordered the Alaskan Seafood Boil. King crab, mussels, shrimp and all the usual fixins. Everything steamed to perfection. The decor is... read more

If your traveling to Seattle and want some local fare, this is the spot for seafood!! Their seafeasts are amazing and plentiful. You will get to sample the local legendary crab cooked up with other seafood. And yes while it may be a lot of food, get an appetizer of the cheddar jalapeno hushpuppies. They are amazing!!!

The one thing we really wanted to do in Seattle was sample the seafood and the Crab Pot fit the bill. We walked down from the Center and arrived around 5 pm. There was a short line but we didn't wait longer than 15 minutes for a table. The inside of the place is huge and there are tables on... More

This place is my absolute favorite restaurant in Seattle. It is one of those places you save up for but the value and entertainment is like no other. Where else can you go and get hammers and tools at the table to dig into the huge pile of seafood they dump right in the middle of the table? Ok, now... More

We had the top combo for three and it filled four of us The huge crab legs were delicious as we're all of the other shrimp, mussels, clams etc To see your food come out in a big stainless bowl and just be tipped on the table in front of you is funny Service was excellent

Again, we came here following a chapter of Man vs. Food. The Place itself is very simple, but .... I don't have words. "SeaFood OUTSTANDING ...", and giant size ! To choose, follow the suggestions of who will take care of you, and Enjoy ! As the SeaFood will be on your table, Really you'll become a SHARK in a... More

We waited a lot for a vacancy table (next to 1 hour) on Tuesday at 6PM. In general the food it's was not good, we grabbed crab and shrimp and the taste and flavor are not so good. The services is complete slow and disregardful.

We enjoyed the crab so much we went back again. This is a casual eatery where tables are set up outside and inside as well. A fun place for friends, couples and families. The service was great.

Waited a good 10 mins for anyone to acknowledge us. Waitress acted as if she didn't want to attend to us. This is the second time this has happened of the 3 times I've been here. Luckily, I like the food.

This is the 3rd time we have been to the crab pot. The food and service is consistently great. We always have the seafood feasts, which are not only delicious, but fun - makes you feel like a caveman!! There is plenty of food. Others in our party had the fish and chips, which they raved about. I always have... More
