We decided to eat here our last night in Seattle because everyone talked about it and I wanted crab. While the place was liv.ey and fun,, the food was not good at all.. We did the couple Westport seafood boil and I have never tasted anything so bland ever.. I had to ask for salt and pepper to be brought... More

I'd seen this restaurant name pop up a lot so I assumed it must be a good one to try. Even after we did the VIP ride on the Great Wheel, which gives you free champagne vouchers to the Fisherman's restaurant, we still chose the Crab Pot. They are known for their seafeast - a huge boiled pot of food... More

Servers and food were really good. The portion size is nice as it isn't a cheap place to eat. The Westport pot is a great choice.

this place is consistent in the seafood experience. Pick an artisan beer to accompany, and try the oyster shooter.

Went here the other night after not being in a few years. Was completely disappointed. The decor and vibe of the place has always been kind of hokey but the crabs always made up for being surrounded by hundreds of people slamming their food with mallets. Our waiter had way too many tables to provide proper attention to detail and... More

For a mere $18 you too can have two fried crab cakes on a paper plate with a plastic fork. The prices are probably typical for Seattle, but i felt they were appallingly high for so little service. You order at a counter, and they bring you your food on a plastic tray. Get your own condiments in the corner.... More

The food is simple, but fresh and good. Lots of fun to make a big mess and eat fresh seafood. Fun for the family

In a week I have been here three times! Nice ambient and good seafood! I recommend grab, grab, grab! Enjoy hammer instead of cutlery 🤓 It's not cheap as restaurant but who cares!

This place is kind of a hole in the wall with outdoor seating on the water (weather permitting). Even at 5pm on a Friday night, we had a 1/2 hour wait for a table, but it was worth it! Hubs had 1/2 doz oysters for an app., I had what turned out to be a HUGE bucket of mussels. Yum,... More
