“Best Seattle Sea Food Experience!!!”
Reviewed February 7, 2013

While stationed at Ft. Lewis for several years my friends and I would visit the Crab Pot nearly every payday. The bucket of sea food all over your table is one of the most amazing food experiences available in Seattle. The price is very reasonable and for an extra $10 they will throw in even more crab legs! On top of the amazing food the restaurant is beautifully located near Pikes Market and is on the water! The staff is always friendly and service is overall prompt and fun!

We walked in not knowing what to expect, but me and my friend were not disappointed. You're sat at the table, and you get a choice of different meals, including buckets of crab legs. We had the Crab, Crab, and Crab, with two Salmon skewers on the side, and I started with a clam chowder.

The chowder was excellent, best in a long time. the Crab was delicious though I wish there was more Alaskan King in there! And the salmon was DIVINE. Try it with the Tricerahops IPA from Oregon and there is no way you can go wrong.

Did I mention they give you a hammer and a bib? To go with your BUCKET OF CRAB?

Amazing place. I want to go back!

“Yummy food”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

We try to go to the pot every time we are in Seattle. Their food is really good. The drinks are good as well. It is a little spendy but you have to pay a little extra when your getting good food. Been there a few times and have had good service ever time as well and have never had to wait to be seated. Their are two floors so it holds quite a few people. Cant wait to go again!
