The Crab Pot – Messy Dining At Its Finest

The Crab Pot Restaurant & Bar is a seafood restaurant in Seattle. They have two locations. One at Pier 57 on the Seattle waterfront and another at Bellevue on Lake Bellevue (which looks more like a pond than a lake).

The Crab Pot specialty is The Seafeast. They take a variety of crab, clams, mussels, shrimp in the shell, salmon, halibut, oysters, potatoes, corn on the cob and andouille sausage steamed with mouth watering spices and pour it right on your table. They give you a bib, a craw breaker and a mallet and let you go at it. It’s not fine dining by any means but it is messy dining at its finest.

The Crab Pot is one of the most enjoyable places to eat in the Pacific Northwest. It’s a shame they don’t have any locations in Vancouver because I would be dining there a lot. If you’re every in the Seattle area, you should definitely check them out. Diner for five came to $150 with tax, tip and drinks.
