Never Changing....

First time for our kids to be there. They had lots of fun!! My wife and I went there years ago. We wondered why they never change. Still the same setting and same taste.

This bustling tourist Mecca is a ton of fun for families, couples, children...sooo yummy too. We arrived on a Wednesday night and were immediately seated. I don't know if they take reservations but Ive been there before and have had a bit of a wait. So if they take em-make em. We always order the oyster shooters to start. YUM!... More

The salmon chowder tasted more like minestrone than a chowder. My fillet was too heavily salted and my wife's was tasteless. When the waitress brought the bill we asked if the fish was fresh and she told us that only the halibut is fresh. I wish we would have known this before hand. It's disappointing to spend $25 on a...

We were in town for the NCAA basketball tournament and had a crew of 14 for dinner. Arrived around 4:30 on a Friday and had no problem getting a table. The drinks and appetizers were on the smaller side. Most of the kids had burgers and they were very large. Mother must have been good because I didn't see any... More

The Crab Pot capitalizes on the experience as fresh seafood is poured out onto the table and everyone is ready with their bibs that were provided. Was a little overpriced but a great way to experience Seattle seafood.

Significantly overpriced. Although the location is perfect at the waterfront at downtown Seattle, the taste of their seafood is nothing special from other places. We paid over $70 for two in exchange for a bucket of 'seafood', half of which is potato and corns. The drink I ordered tastes great though.

This place was recommended by a friend. When my boyfriend and I took my mom down to Seattle, we gave it a try. Huge line up at the restaurant when we arrived and an hour and a half later when we left... MUST MAKE RESERVATION if you don't want to line up. If you can't make a reso, GET YOUR... More

I've been to a lot of seafood eateries - ranging from food trucks, local hole-in-the-walls, to expensive sit down restaurants. I know what good seafood is and love the whole "wearing a bib over fresh seafood spilled in front of me" experience. Because yelp, all the tourism pamphlets and internet blogs recommended the Crab Pot, I had high expectations. Because... More

If you are in Seattle this is a must try. Having a generous bowl of mixed seafood, potatoes and corn dumped in a pile on the table in front of you and having a bib tied around your neck doesn't get any better. Clams, muscles, shrimp and crab.. yes, all of those things can be yours! This place is great... More

Recommend this restaurant if you have children in your group. It is very loud so if you are hoping for a conversation I would pick a different restaurant. I had the crab salad and the lettuce they used was bib lettuce so it was rather wilted and not very much crab for the price of the salad. Another in our... More
