Tips from the Net @ The Crab Pot

The service was excellent and fast. The food my son and I had was wonderful. Unfortunately my husband spent the entire evening violently ill. I just don't think I'll be going back... GooglePlace - March 2017

Star for the experience, star for the decor. But it's way overpriced. Don't be fooled by the menu, you will spend at least $50/person to get anything other than appetizer. With that, food is pretty average and definitely does not come fresh from the market. Service and cutlery is that of a cheap diner. On my last visit my water glass (maybe it was the ice) smelled of dirty rags. If you want to entertain your guests and hell bent on the Crab Pot experience, at least go for the one in Bellevue. Or better go to a proper fancy place that will sell you a nice lobster dinner for $50 GooglePlace - March 2017

After being lured to this establishment by one of the employees claiming it was better than the boiling crab located in California, we decided to give them the benefit of the doubt, sadly this gentlemen was mistaken Boiling crab still remains the number one seafood place in the West coast. Great food at affordable prices and large quantities. Our waiter Thomas was awesome! And the bus boy with the ponytail was awesome to! GooglePlace - February 2017

Definitely a cool scene in Seattle. On the pier, serves seafood, good atmosphere. Food is just okay, especially for the price you're paying. We ordered one of the crab boils. Was craving crab at the time, but it was definitely cooked in advance and preheated which made the meat dry and tough. Overall fun experience on the pier, but would be hard pressed to go out of my way to go to this place again. Good place to take people visiting town or if you want to do a big group in a good location. Lots of options, but be prepared to break out your wallet. You're paying for the location. Fortunately the free bread was out of this world. See picture. GooglePlace - January 2017

We visited Seattle for the rain/gloomy weather (we're weird like that), to see the Space Needle, and have fresh seafood. After accomplishing the first two, we decided that the Crab Pot was our fix for our last goal. Our dinner was... Good. Nothing really stood out as exceptional, but nothing would have been considered bad. I think I just expected a better overall price to deliciousness ratio from a crab place on a pier in Seattle. Note: If you have a love of smashing things with a small wood hammer, you may want to try the Crab Pot out for that experience alone. GooglePlace - December 2016
