    Order SeaFeasts e.g. Alaskan crab, oysters, clams, mussels etc. that come in a bucket thrown on your table, fresh and fun! Plenty of seafood dishes to choose from the menu too. Have it with some beer!

    The Oysters here are so huge and not to mention the freshness. It's nothing like the Crab Pot in Los Angeles Long Beach. Also try their Alaskan dish. The King Crab are worth the price.

    Traveling alone? No problem. Sit at the bar, have a manny's local brew and dog into some crab (I had the crab cocktail, it's amazing)

    Simple and affordable seafood restaurant on the waterfront. Get fried options. Get the Halibut. Also they have pretty solid oyster shooters

    You should definitely go for their combo offering, where for $30-50 you will get pile of seafood including several types of crabs in front of you.

    Confusing menu: The Cove = just clams, mussels, & shrimp.The Pacific Clambake = + oysters & salmon.The Westport = no king crab, oysters or salmon.The Alaskan = +King Crab but no oysters or salmon

    Hilarious place to eat crab. If it's your first time here, go for the seafood feast with alaskan king crab and hammer it out. Careful not to splatter on nearby tables!

    The pacific clambake was awesome. New England clam chowder was great too. Definitely a good seafood joint when visiting Seattle.

    Better than the Bellevue branch, but finding parking and getting a table is a pain. Food's well worth it though. Smash away!

    Crabs by the bushel. Hammers cracking shells everywhere. The crab cake sliders and fish and chips are also pretty good.

    If you're looking for something that doesn't require a bib and mallet, the oyster po' boy is quite delicious.

    Deep fried Halibut sandiwich is $16; bit pricey. Still worth it.

    Love the spices that they boil with the seafood. Good stuff in general but the prawns are not so fresh

    Pop into any hotel or place that has those touristy brochures... The Crab Pot has coupons out there for a free appetizer. Nothing wrong with free!

    Yes, it's very touristic, but it's nice. And the service is great. Not that expansive for a seafood place

    Whole pot of crab dumped on your table. Plus beer. Equals a fun meal. Get extra crab.

    Enjoyed the Alaskan but next time I will just do the crab legs, shrimp was not very tasty to me and the muscles/ class seemed cold

    No root beer on tap. I asked our server, he said there was and brings me a bottle of root beer...awesome.

    The server never brought us a hammer, bibs or the drink we ordered as we were half way thru our meal. Yet everyone around us got their bibs and hammers.

    Bit of a cheesy tourist place but the fish is good and they throw it on the table to eat with your hands so I like it.

    While there is usually a wait at this tourist trap I still highly enjoy coming here. I especially like the Westport. I do want to check out the one in Bellevue to see if it's less busy.

    Do not get The West Port or any other dinner specials in the same category with it. The price is not worth it, you will be highly disappointed. Would recommend something else. The ahi started was good

    All of the fried food seafood baskets are overpriced. Get something with crab. I looked on in envy as others ate delicious crab :(
