    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)

    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

    Get the meal where they dump seafood on the table, and get a liter of beer. You can't lose!

    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.

    Amazing! If you're a tourist you must have The Alaskan, messy but delicious!

    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.

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

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

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

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

    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

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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
