The Crab Pot Restaurant & Bar is a fun and casual restaurant specializing in delicious seafood. What makes this particular restaurant famous is its incredible Seafeast. There are four different varieties of Seafeast but they all have one thing in common: giant steamed buckets of seafood that are dumped directly onto the table. The most popular is The Alaskan which comes with king crab, snow crab, Dungeness crab, steamed clams, shrimp, Pacific mussels, andouille sausage, red potatoes and corn on the cob.

For those looking for a more traditional entrée, the Crab Pot has a wide variety of options. The rest of the menu is made up of fried seafood, grilled seafood, ribs & chicken, burgers and sandwiches. While the seafood options are delicious, there are plenty of beef and chicken dishes as well like the colossal bacon cheeseburger, barbecue ribs and grilled chicken breasts with seasonal vegetables.

Every year on my birthday i get to go to the crab pot, always enjoy myself and the food is to die for, always get the king crab legs and a side of sausages. This visit was great not many people this time so the staff had extra time to ask us how things were. I always tell my friends and family this is the to go place for great food.

We always have a great experience when we eat at the Crab Pot, the Cove dishes and the drinks are always so tasty and being near the ocean isn't half bad either. This is a place where we can dress and be casual while enjoying seafood and martinis plus the delicious sour dough crusty bread and the to-die-for Rhubarb cake and Ice cream are the icing on the cake!

A nice place to go for Christmas Eve dinner with the family. Most of the food was good, but seems overpriced.

It seems we kind of got lost in the shuffle of a shift change. If the first waiter had stayed I think this would be a different rating. Never served bread at the table. Waitress seemed “bothered” by us. Crab was overcooked and seemed old. Some parts were grayish. I’d go there again but maybe during warm weather and sit outside.

I was disappointed when the manager didn’t know what to do with open table, so I wasn’t able to receive my points. He wasn’t too friendly about it either.

The food is good, and I’ll continue to dine there

I'd recommend with several disclosures. My margarita was so watered down after requesting top shelf alcohol and paying extra.

Shrimp served with shrimp platter was dry and chewy. It was over cooked. Rice pilaf had mushrooms in it. Not a fan. Did not send back but left disappointed. It was 8 of us. Spent a bit of money and did not enjoy food. Server was nice. Came around 9pm on a slow night for a birthday dinner. No one else in restaurant. It was very quiet. Weather was not the best.

We sat inside, as it was a bit chilly and Monday night football made chatting a little challenging. The menu has lots if good options, but we opted for appetizers and drinks. The calamari sticks were good, and not overly chewy or greasy. My friend ordered the wings, surprised at the size of the serving. We’ll go again.

Our server was great but our food was quite gross and over greasy on our soft shell crab po boy and the 1/2 lb shrimp was slight overcooked and only had seasoning poured on top. Was sadly disappointed in my dinner.

Two members ordered steak that was tough and stringy. Too bad we paid so much for it. The king crab legs were disappointing also. Not much meat.

Crab pot is well located by the lb marina with outdoor seating preferred. The crab cakes appetizers were delicious. Main course tacos came with chips and salsa. Staff was busy forgetting our drink order but we were not rushed from our table either.

The wait time was great. But the food was awful. I ordered the Jambalaya and it was salty. The grilled cheese for my kid came out 10 minutes after our food and it suppler hot. My husbands calamari and chips was also poor cooked. That was the first time and last time I’ll ever there again.
