We ate dinner at The Crab Pot Seafood Restaurant and enjoyed our meal. The service was good and the food very tasty. We ordered the crab salad and there was a good amount of crab in the salad. This is not a "high end" restaurant and the checked tablecloths and bowls on the floor for people to throw their shells

I went in here, paid a lot with my wife and our friend, but we ate well and walked out feeling full. The problem is seeing how much more it reflected on our currency, since we were visiting from Vancouver, Canada. The service was great, the food was great... I just wouldn't eat here again because of the prices though.

Being a Seattle resident, The Crab Pot is one of the last places I would go for crab or seafood, unless you have kids as the atmosphere caters to that. The food is ok and it is on the water so it has that going for it. For the same amount of money or less, you can eat at Elliott's,... More

The Crab Pot is absolutely worth a try. I recommend going on a weekday to avoid HUGE waits. Treat yourself to a huge helping of Alaskan King Crab. You won't be disappointed!!

Its pricey, and I would only go back if someone from out of town really wanted to experience this. I first visited this place with my boyfriend and got down and dirty. Its pretty much just steamed seafoods with dry seasoning sprinkled on top. You get a mallet, a bib, and you get down and dirty. Its fun, no doubt.... More

This is a fun place to go with friends and family!! The food is in abundance. You will not leave here hungry. The cooking of everything is perfect. The service we had was superb. On top of it continuously. We went on a Friday evening and there was a 20 nit wait. Thought that was not a bad wait time... More

What a fantastic way to end the night. We ordered 2 of the "Alaskan" and washed it down with a couple of beers. Around $50 per person. Wait time was almost an hour, so plan ahead if you have no reservation.

I was here with my friend, and the food here is one of the most impressive lunch in Seattle. $40 per person, and you can enjoy a full pot of crab, shrimp, salmon and clams. It is a little bit spicy, but I really like the flavor. Strongly recommended!
