Several people had recommended this place and since it was within walking distance of our hotel, we decided to give it a try. We did not have to wait long and were seated outside as per our request; thus my rating of "Excellent atmosphere". Our waitress was excellent - friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive. The Cucumber Mojito was tasty and we... More

A lot of reviewers almost had me skip on the crab pot restaurant but as a last minute option I decided to try it anyway and I am glad we did !! We waited close to an hour , but it was worth the wait as their crab cakes were delicious and the Alaskan sea feast was great !!!

Had father's day dinner here while on vacation. The service was outstanding, all of the staff was friendly, courteous and efficient. However, this place has been around a long time and it shows it. The menu is not very large and the selections are nothing to brag about. The interior is decorated in early seafarer and desperately needs updating. While... More

We wanted to enjoy the traditional crab bowl, dumped out on the table. The crab pot didn't disappoint. We went on a Sunday afternoon and only waited five minutes for a table. The staff was friendly and kept our water glasses full which is important to hubby. Our table was on the patio and we watcHed the boats while eating.... More

You'll love this restaurant. A big meal for 2 cost $70 including 4 glasses of their excellent Coopers Ridge house red wine. Service was fast and friendly. My only complaint... The sun was too hot! I'd thoroughly recommend this restaurant

I found this restaurant in the tourist magazine ad. Juicy details about their signature Seafeasts got me interested. When we saw a huge (like enormous) line to just sign up for a wait my husband almost run away. But I've decided that it's a good sign. It must be good and probably worth waiting! So, actual wait time was not... More

We brought our children for the first time and order two pots thinking that this would be enough to share. We end up ordering another because the liked so much and had a fun time here. Our wait was to be 45mins for a table outside but really was only like 20. Service was good and waiter was nice and... More

We went with a family of 5 and had one of the feasts. The food was good and the seafood was all cooked just right. But for the amount we paid, I would have expected enough of each type of crab for each person and less of the cheaper components in the pot. It is a fun way to eat... More

We ordered a pot of seafood (it wasn't cheap... we ordered one that was $27/ person that came with crab, unpeeled shrimp, sausage, mussels, clams, red potatoes, and corn). They bring you paper, a mallet, and bibs! It was so fun smashing the crabs! The experience alone was worth it. I'd highly recommend this place if you're in Seattle. It's... More

We've been here on three separate occasions, with a different party size each time. The staff was nice and accomodating and the food was even better. I highly recommend one of the Seafeasts. The Westport is probably my favorite. The salmon chowder and burgers were also favorites from guests we've brought there. I would recommend arriving at opening, especially during... More
