I'm not a seafood lover. However, the Crab Pot indeed attract my attentions. Here the restaurant provides huge crabs. Besides, the way of eating crabs here is different. The waiters/waitresses here set up your table for you, then they dump the crabs on your table. You then just using you own hands with the wooden hammers for getting the meal... More

We went to the restaurant early, like 5pm or so as we were told it may get very busy due to the fact it was the Sunday before Valentine's Day. Glad we did. There was a line up when we left. The service was good as was the food. But nothing outstanding. Since we were only in Seattle for 2... More

The fish and chips meals are about twelve dollars and selection includes cod, salmon and halibut, as a choice. Halibut is my favorite. Wait time is about ten minutes for your meal to arrive

We celebrated Valentine's Day here. It was fun, good food, and the best part was we didn't have to dress fancy. Our favorite is the Alaskan seafeast ($50 pp) with strawberry lemonades. We have learned not to get appetizers since there is always so much food. And if we do want something sweet afterwards we go next door and get... More

This is a hard one for me because I have had mixed experiences. This restaurant is so big that I don't know how they manage and I can understand why sometimes the food can be overcooked...alot to manage. It's still worth the visit. The water front has many attractions and the restaurant has a great view if you eat outside.

We waited around an hour for a table but it turned out to be worth it in the end. The place is very loud and crowded but that kind of adds to the charm of the place. We ordered the "Alaskan" for 4 and it came out pretty quickly. Everything was piping hot and cooked perfectly! We sat outside and... More

This was a fun family restaurant, with large portions and a fun party atmosphere:). A little pricey, but not too overly priced by Seattle standards. We went late after returning from Victoria BC, Canada. We still had a 30 minute wait, but the place was hopping, and was good food and good service.
