    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!

    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)

    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.

    So I got wo pound snow crab and wild caught salmon steak which was all too much. Took the crabs home then boiled it in leftover Tom yum soup. It was 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!

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

    Don't believe the hype. There are plenty of MUCH better restaurants within walking distance. If your idea of good seafood is Long John Silvers, this place is for you --at 5X the price.

    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

    Not quite as good as we had hoped. We got the "Westport" feast and were pretty disappointed. A lot of the food was still a little dirty and had little to no seasoning or flavor.

    一番安いプランだと貝ばかりなのでハンマー使う意味がありません。 せめて下から2番目や3番目ぐらいのコースにしましょう。 そうするとカニをハンマーでバコバコ破壊して食事できます。
