Crab Pot Restaurant & Bar | Seattle, WA

Sampling the seafood of the Upper Northwest is not yet a requirement, but it should be. There's certainly enough of it to go around given Seattle's proximity to the Pacific Ocean, and there's certainly no shortage of places to go. During one of our visits, we followed a tip from friends and locals alike and stopped into the Crab Pot Restaurant and Bar, where they have been serving up some of the best seafood creations the city has to offer for over 30 years.

From fresh mussels and clams to salmon, halibut, and crab legs, the friendly staff can bring it all to your table in a variety of ways whether it's grilled, steamed, sauteed, or arranged in a number of plate combinations. But heeding the advice those sitting with us, we had to go with their famous seafeasts. There are four different ones on the menu, and we chose to combine The Alaskan with The Pacific Clambake. Just check out what was essentially laid out before our eyes: king crab, dungeness crab, snow crab, shrimp in the shell, steamed clams, oysters, halibut and salmon skewers, pacific mussels, andouille sausage, corn on the cob, and red potatoes. Needless to say, it got a bit messy, but it was oh so good!!!

Now, it's our understanding that the Seattle location is its original, and there is one other Crab Pot location in Bellevue, Washington. But for us Californians who can't quite make it that far north, you can find one of their restaurants closer to home, especially if home is in Rancho Mirage, Long Beach, or La Quinta. So, what are you waiting for? Pull up a chair, roll up your sleeves, strap up the bib, and get "crackin."
