Good location at the pier. Had king crab legs. They were tasty. Tried to eat here on Saturday night but it was crazy crowded. Came back for late lunch in Tuesday & were easily sat on the deck. Staff was pleasant & helpful.

We had so much fun! We ordered the "Alaskan" for two and look what they brought(pic). We started with sour dough bread, ice tea and a soda. Then a huge bowl of clams, mussels, shrimp, crab, sausage, corn and potatoes came out with small cups of butter. They gave us wooden cutting boards, small forks and a wooden hammer to... More

A very enjoyable restaurant, located right on the waterfront. We enjoyed the clam chowder, and really enjoyed a bucket of Alaskan King Crab being dumped onto the table! Very fun atmosphere and good seafood!

This place is so much fun. The pile of clams, crab, mussels, shrimp, corn poured out onto the table is an experience as wonderful as the food. AND...it is all delicious!

We enjoyed the fresh seafood. They pour a bucket of some of the freshest seafood that I've tasted on the table. It's a down home kind of atmosphere and you also have views of the water while you eat. Our waiter was great and very attentive.

We did not mind paying the price for such a fun and tasty meal. Two of us had the Westport and two of us had the Alaskan. I kind of expected... More

They dump your seafood selections on your table and you eat a selection of your choices that are messy, fun and a must visit in Seattle! Always packed with guests! A good place to eat for over 30 years! Now that's consistency! A Seattle institution!

If you are a seafood lover, you must eat here! Loved the atmosphere and the views from the restaurant and the food was unbelievable. The seafood is incredibly fresh and I love how it's served. My sister and I shared a seafood feast for two which came with clams, muscles, shrimp, crab legs, corn on the cob, sausage and potatoes.... More
