You can't go wrong with a pile of steaming hot seafood and all the fixings on the table right in front of you. This is a casual place, and while it was busy, the service was great. The wooden mallet they give you to crush your crab shells was great fun! Go hungry, and leave happy! If you are seafood... More

On the waterfront of Seattle in one of the many piers far from being as nice as in San Francisco. Anyway the crab pot has an acceptable terrace with a lilited view. The menu offers a large chiice of seafood. The clam chowder was good but poorly presented with a lot of it outside the cup. The bucket of steamed... More

Wait for an outdoor table (weather permitting) - the interior was pretty dingy and frankly - smelled bad. Outdoors was ideal on our visit but recommended even if somewhat less than ideal weather. The salmon wrap was actually very good and generously proportioned. The clam strips were good but not noteworthy or special - Long John Silvers on the pier.

The service was ok, and sitting on the deck in nice weather is a must. I like the novelty factor of wearing a bib. We ordered the Pacific Clambake for $37 per person.The salmon was over cooked, but the crab and shell fish was all very nice. This place is quite expensive once you add a drink, tax and tips....

Went here twice on our most recent visit to Seattle. It is not fancy, but if you're looking for fresh seafood, good service and some laughs this is the place. Had a small wait the first time but I can understand why. The staff was very helpful with the menu and quick to offer suggestions. I would go back in... More

We were seated outside enjoying the bright sunny day. The waiter poured 3 big bowls of seafood on the table for the 7 of us to work on. Excellent seafood. What a lunch!!

I was looking for crab cakes and we got here (partner and I) so delicious!!! The wait is completely worth, but you can always go to the bar and start with a bottle of wine and some sour dough bread and some calamari!!!! The view is amazing!!! (Make sure you ask them to be outside!!!) servers are awesome!! Ask for... More

Forget fancy linens ... the crab comes in a bowl that they pour on the paper table cloth in front of you and you get armed with a mallet and a wooden plate for your feast... you then throw the crab shells back in the bowl that they put on the floor next to your table.. Re-reading this almost makes... More

We went here for dinner, and we were seated within 5 minutes, even though it looked incredibly busy. Many tables ordered the "bucket" of food, but we were not that hungry. Great crab cakes! Beers were great and affordable prices.
