They bring out a big bowl of seafood and dump it on the table! Good sourdough bread and butter. Really good shrimp!

Right on the waterfront. We just stopped in at the bar for appies and drinks but I'm sure it is worth a visit back for dinner. Large windows open up on the water and the park. The bucket of little succulent clams and the plate of crab nachos was delicious.

Some waiters let you know ahead of time, but if you like crab legs don't order what we ordered. Should've ordered snow crab legs and a combination. Not 2 combinations cause the other person liked crab too. Was expensive and could get all you can eat crab legs other places for a better price.

Service was excellent. Our waitress was very attentive as well as others who would refill our waters. Employees appeared to work great as a team. We ordered a crab pot which consisted of snow crab legs, shrimp, mussels, potatoes, sausage and corn. Corn was sweet and satisfying! Potatoes were slightly undercooked but I didn't mind as everything else was excellent!... More

Our family love this place and go whenever we crave for seafood. My sisters and brothers who come to visit from Thailand always love to go there. The price is good and the seafood is always fresh. A good place to hang out with family. Be prepared to get down and dirty so don't wear expensive clothes to protect from... More

Food was good, nothing special. Cannot complain about the service. It was also good, nothing special. Restaurant was on the waterfront in a nice area. I probably would not make a special trip to go back.

Very nice establishment! The crab was delicious And poured out right on our table... there really wasn't much corn or potatoes. But everything was seasoned nicely, our server was very helpful in helping us decode the menu. A little pricey but , that's kind of what we were expecting. The sourdough bread that came out before the meal was tasty.... More

Great tourist stop if you are at the Seattle Aquarium, taking an Argosy tour, ferry ride or riding the Ferris wheel. Great views of The Sound and mountains, outside dining when the weather is good. A good kid's menu with a good variety. The clam chowder is delicious!! The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. They interacted wonderfully with the... More

You eat with your hands and a mallet to crack the shellfish. Great food and great desserts. If you can order with your initial order or they might run out.

We attended with our grandchildren and they loved the place. Good seafood and the fact that everything was poured onto the paper covered table was an unusual way to eat.
