A lot of seafood, including some great king crab legs! I love this place. Great location to take a walk after stuffing yourself with all the deliscious seafood.

Seven of us went and enjoyed different options. All were very tasty and presented well. Some of the crab/seafood dishes are dumped onto a large piece of paper directly on the tablecloth... And you are given a board and hammer to attack the shells! Good thing you get a bib!

This place is fun environment for family out of town guests and kids. The steam pot menu is good to get. it has steamed potatoes corn on the cob and all different types of crab legs. They serve it with newspaper and bibs, and it's really a fun environment. I would not say this is the best seafood in town,... More

I have a rule when I travel that at least one meal has to be something local. I had the whole Dungeness crab here and was not disappointed. They served it "boil-style", with corn & potatoes right on the table. My husband got snow crab legs and said they were some of the best he's had. Kids had fun with... More

We had lunch here after a Harbor Cruise. The weather was beautiful and the food was very good. My son had the Prawns & Chips, he was astonished by the size. The Crab Cake Sliders were my favorite. The Crab Bowls looked amazing but a little messy for our lunch.

For tourist travelers, in order to acquainted yourself with the local flavor and specialties, you just shall not miss this restaurant. It is crowded all day long, but worthwhile. While waiting to be seated, you can simply walk around this tourist spot of Seattle.

The restaurant is at the water front and within a walking distance from the Pike place market. It offers a variety of great sea food on their menu. If you are not a fun of sea food but loves the view, do not worry, there is something for everyone ranging from buggers to fried chicken. I love their burgers and... More

We come here for the delicious seafood pots. We love the Alaskan. Everything plus corn, potatoes, sausage! So yummy. Servers are usually very nice. View is breathtaking especially when the sun is going down.
