An easy walk from our hotel, very busy but the wait was just under their estimate. Really enjoyed the food and the casual atmosphere. Leslie was attentive and pleasant. I would put it on my 'places to eat while visiting the Seattle waterfront' list for sure!

If you are in Seattle this is the place to be as a Tourist. Fingerfood and a Hammer that´s all - great Service. But not cheap.

This is the place to come if you love crabs like i do! A buddy of mine and I ordered the Alaskan (has to be ordered by 2 people to get it) and it was everything i hoped for and more! And our server, An, was phenomenal!!! Had the Elysian Space Dust IPA to wash it all down!!

The harbor area would be an oasis if not for the absolutely horrible motorway cutting the harbor from the upper city. The restaurant is all the same well placed. The staff were friendly. The signature Dungeness crab ought to be much better. It was dry and tasteless. A few days later we had crab in the Fiji islands. What a... More

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.
