We actually ended up eating here twice..the first time was for lunch..we saw the huge portions of seafood coming out..we ended up ordering sandwichs they were really good. The next time we went for dinner and decided it was still to much to eat for us..you can order different pots of seafood for 2 or more..we ended up ordering salads... More

I will say I ordered chicken...so I was prepared because obviously it's not their specialty. My boyfriend enjoyed his king crab legs and the jalapeño cheddar hush puppies were really good.

Quite simply, this place is awesome and the food is GREAT !! Order one of the seafood bowls, put on your bib, grab your mallet and bust out the crab !!! Been here on 3 occasions and the staff is busy as heck but still treat you well and are always pleasant. A must visit when you're in Seattle !!

Had the Alaskan feast which was plenty for our party of three. Also had the crab cakes as an appetizer. Sat outside on the deck and the service was on point. I would recommend to anyone who loves seafood. We will be back.

This was our big splurge meal. Worth every penny and we still had some left! Prices are average with other crab houses but this was the best tasting by far. Right on the waterfront too, which is always a plus when eating seafood. Prepare to get dirty & have fun!!!!

OMG! This is a great place for seafood. I had the Crabs, Crabs, Crabs - three different kinds of crab legs. They put paper down on your table and when your food comes, it's dumped on the table. No formalities, no use for silverware! Great!

Really expensive meal. The "crab pot" didn't contain much crab. Mostly potatoes, corn, and muscles and clams. All cheap stuff. Not enough shrimp and not enough crab to satisfy my 95lb wife. Also didn't really have much flavor either. Some butter and some spices but my friends and I were scraping what spices we could find to get some extra... More

We were seated right away which was a plus because a line formed quickly after us. But here is my complaint ! My husband went stickily to get a crab pot when we sit down to order where informed you most order two crab potts which then makes one to get it! so basically your looking at at least $50... More

We had a fun dinner at the Crab Pot. Touristy and always busy but only a 20 minute wait to get seated. Good service, delicious seafood, totally immersed in it with our mallets and bibs. We'd go back again.
