I am a huge fan of boil! If you eat here make sure you are eating crab. The shrimp was okay, but not great. The Crab was Super! The place is huge and I was glad we were there just after it opened for lunch. It had the look like it could be a nightmare during Friday night dinner. We... More

Arrived a friday evening in the rain. Lot of people in restaurant but not full. We got a table in a second and ice water the next second. Menu and welcome pronto. Service is excellent. We orderd a cup of standard clam chowder as a starter, with that came warm white bread that tasted nothing. Crab cakes was a very... More

It appears this restaurant lacks the quality of food and service their other locations are known for. My crab melt consisted of 2 small squares of crustless bread, a dollop of crab filling, an unripened tomato slice hidden by a slab of partially melted cheese. The fries were hard and dry; almost as if they had just been rewarmed, no... More

Great restaurant with all types of seafood and inexpensive. Great for large groups or couples. Wait staff does a great job and is knowledgeable about the food they serve.

So I learned ahead of time that seafood boils are not a PNW thing & I didn't care much to eat at chain restaurants but the guys still wanted to try it so we did. And it was very very good. There was not one disappointed belly at the table. Our waitress was very sweet & attentive so we were... More

Not only is it great food, it is fun food! If you order one of their deals, they bring a big pot out full of shrimp, oysters, potatoes and two kinds of crab and dump it on the table. From there, it is sheer heaven! But the fun is not over there. The wharf area is full of things to... More

If you've seen or heard of crab, crawfish cookoffs and like to taste it come here. Maybe not gourmet food but certainly tasty and worth the trip. Highly recommended any of the signature dishes where you get a bowl and a bib. Memorable and filling.

Coming to the crab pot was a bit of an accident, we were downtown, we were hungry, and we had just finished our trip to the aquarium. We all wanted a taste of seafood so we went to the Crab Pot. It was so worth it, it was delicious the best food I had on our entire trip. I had... More

The Crab Pot is too expensive based on the service and food preparation they provide. Oysters were not shucked properly they were completely drained and not fully detached and because of that they were completely dry and difficult to eat. The steamed clams were not cleaned properly leaving a lot of sand them to the point it felt like you... More
