Tips from the Net @ The Crab Pot

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

I thought the food was delicious. We had crab, and cod and chips. The only issue were the waiters. They stood there without any suggestions as to what they had, any specials or anything. I asked them what other crab options and they just pointed to the sign, which didn't have all the options. Good, just not great. Customer service could be improved. GooglePlace - January 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

Beginning of our visit was good, got seated fast got some water and placed our orders. We saw our server a little bit busy so we asked one of the greeters for extra sauce . We waited and waited I turned around and she was outside the door talking to another co- worker. Later she came around and sat another customer and said oh I'm sorry I'll get your sauce. Of course this was 10min later. Then our main course was ready, they spilled our crab on the table and the potatoes and corn rolled out from the table and onto my clothes. I am very upset with the service but the food was good. I would never take any of my visitors there not ever go there again. GooglePlace - December 2016

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
