Fish and Chips

Fish and Chips - both the Cod and the Salmon were wonderful. We had planned to eat at Ivar's but it was closed due to remodeling so we went to Crab Pot as a 2nd choice but are very glad we went.

This is definitely a Tourist spot on the waterfront of Seattle that's trendy, cute and fun to visit at the pier. It's in a waterfront warehouse with a ton of stores, eateries and vendor spots. They are at the upper level, which for the vulnerable would have a problem climbing the steep steps. Nice decor and relaxed vibe. Bathroom was... More

We had the Alaska crab pot, combination of Alaskan, Dungarees crab and snow crab with shrimps, Italian sausages, mussels, clams, potatoes and corn. The seafood, especially the crab is super fresh and sweet, you have to try it. This is by far the best seafood "platter" I've ever had. The experience is very different, the seafood is steamed, sprinkled with... More

It was terrific to find this place. Importantly the food was great and the staff are eager to assist and to help. We visited only ones. Good value, good quality, fast service and a good range to choose.

This was my first time someone just pouring seafood on the table and you can pick whatever you want. Food was extremely tasty and a bit pricey. But the it was worth it just for the experience.

This is a great place to go for a Seattle seafood experience. It was so much fun to get the large bowls of shellfish, corn, potatoes, and sausage dumped on the table complete with little forks,boards, hammers and bibs. The food is a little pricey, but this is more of a destination dinner than just a place to grab a... More

Had a craving for seafood and so we decided to try this place, a short walk from the Marriot. We decided to try their famous Alaskan seafeast...we were not disappointed. More than enough shrimp, crab (king, snow and dungess) along with mussels and clams. Definitely would go back here.

Pure tourist attraction. We've eaten seafood all over the states, and although there is a big selection, it's all for tourists. The food was average at best, and a true assembly line to get you through. Lots of room to eat, so there is little to no wait. Search for a better place if you're not looking for fast food.

I was expecting much more. The restaurant was crowded, but as I was going there alone I didn't have to wait too long. Service was friendly and fast, but the food was below average and it was expensive too. It is very touristic and popular restaurant, but I am sure that it is easy to find much better seafood in...

Location was a bit farther away from the Belltown Inn than we expected and with the steep hills getting to the warf it was a bit of a long walk.
