Between 3-6 PM the Crab Pot has a delicious menu for $11.95. You get several seafood choices, a meat choice and a wonderful seafood pasta on the menu. It is served with your choice of potatoes ( best french fries ever), fresh veggies, and a cabbage and sauce leaf ( salad???). It comes with excellent, fresh sour dough bread and butter. I usually order the salmon, and I request it come moist, and it is perfect!

There is a lot more on the regular menu, but since this special is what we always order, I can't recommend anything else. The dining room is lovely as is the bar area if you choose to eat there. Outside dining is in a garden like atmosphere, and is very nice with heaters if you are chilly.

You will enjoy "meeting" the couple who always are in the outside area, and the "gentleman" at the bar.

Our server was friendly and did a good job checking in on us unobtrusively. It is a very casual place, not fine dining. My husband had crab. A lot of crab. The serving was large, compared to other restaurants that give you half a crab. He loved it. I had ahi, and it was broiled rare (as it should be). This is a nice place for good seafood in an unpretentious atmosphere.

So, liking clam linguini, I ordered clam linguini. This is how they made mine. They took a few clams and maybe a miniscule quantity clam meat, juice of clam, wine--- little else. Then dumped it over cooked linguini. No reduction, little condiment, sparce oil. Product was over salty, watery and bla. Being a generous person, I gave them a single star--- reluctantly.

I have always loved the Crab Pot restaurants and was disappointed when the Rancho Mirage location closed. Had the chance to visit the La Quinta location recently. A much smaller location, but fun and intimate. Food preparation/quality seems to be slipping slightly from this chain's usual standards.
