[Dine-Out] Seattle: The Crab Pot

So, The Crab Pot is probably a giant tourist trap and all the Seattle foodies probably wouldn’t go near it with a ten-foot pole…but…we just had to go. We are tourists after all.

Store Front

While I realize this isn’t a Michelin star restaurant or anything, but seriously? I do expect clean napkins…

Mmm…lovely saucy finger prints that aren’t ours…appetizing…

Received the dirtiest look from our waitress when I asked for a clean napkin roll. I don’t think I was being overly fussy or anything, I even asked nicely. Would you have asked for a clean napkin roll?

Complimentary bread

Don’t waste your precious stomach space eating this bread. It is definitely nothing compared to what is to come. Hard and crunchy and stale.

Patiently awaiting our mountain of seafood…

We ordered The Pacific Clambake as opposed to the Alaskan because we wanted oysters.

Mmm…about to the mallet to good use

The Pacific Clambake comes with clams, mussels, dungeness crab, snow crab, oysters, shrimp, halibut, salmon, andouille sausage, corn on the cob, and red potatoes. The only difference between this and The Alaskan is that it doesn’t come with King Crab (but it is $6 less).

Close Up!

The crab was actually quite fresh (as it should be). Most of the shells (clams, mussels, and oysters) had fallen out of their shells so it was really just a wild scramble for getting what you wanted to eat (I don’t like mussels as much). Bahahaha, left all of those for the bf because he can’t tell them apart.

Salmon & Halibut Skewer

Did not like the skewer at all. The fish was overcooked and waaay over seasoned.

Mission Accomplished.
