The Alaskan.

The crab pot is a must visit if you love seafood. The restaurant has an extensive list of beers and the Alaskan pot is a must. Service at the bar was welcoming and set us up for a great dinner experience. Will defiantly be back.

Had crab, crab, and crab, with the crab stuffed mushrooms appetizer. Plan on the corn being gross and overcooked, and throw out the sausages, but the crab can't be beaten. They also make a delicious bloody Mary!

Is it overpriced? Is it touristy? YES, but it's still fun. If you know what you are getting into and are prepared, this place is still fun and a great family atmosphere. It's expensive, but can be fun for a special occasion. Tough sledding on the waterfront with all the construction, and the restaurant looks like it could use a... More

We actually went twice during this trip. The grilled Salmon burger was really large, filled my husband up!! The bread bowl clam chowder was great, it was listed under appetizers but was a full meal! I've never had clams as large & as tender as the ones in this New England clam chowder. The burger was juicy & very flavorful,... More

For your seafood fix, this is a place to go. Good, fresh seafood at a good price. The one thing that my husband I didn't care for was the minimum 2 orders requirement.

A unique experience to be sure, and excellent seafood. And a great view of the harbor. You must get the Seafeast, they dump the food on the table, give you a mallet and everyone goes at it - what a hoot. The clam chowder ranks among the best i have ever had. We go here every time we come to... More

This restaurant is in a superb location, but the service and food are sub-par at best. The seafood is under seasoned and over priced.

This place was exactly as everyone had said. We were seated quickly near the window. We ordered the boiled seafood which included crabs, clams, shrimp, and corn. Only thing I disliked was the minimum 2 orders requirement. My girlfriend and I don't eat much so we left a good bit behind. Otherwise it was delicious. Well worth the money.

Sat at the bar. Got fast service from Tim the bartender. I ordered raw oysters, and also got fresh warm sourdough bread with butter. The oysters were very fresh and tasted great. The beer and wine list was good, and I had a glass of local Washington Chardonnay that was priced right. I like this place. You even get your... More
