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.

The service was good, but we had the crab, and it was very disappointing. Not cooked correctly and was not fresh.

It was a delightful day to sit by the water and enjoy a Cobb Salad and a glass of wine with my best friend. The staff was attentive to our needs!

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.

My family, friends and I have dined here many times since it first opened. It never disappoints in any way. Never a food problem, server problem or a seating problem.

Nice table outside, for son’s birthday. Food and view both great. Only issue was shade - had to move our own umbrellas to give us sufficient shade

The crab pot was fun and plenty of food. The crab was not at all salty or dry, as many king or snow crab ends up. However since there was no broth, the clams and mussels did seem a little dry. The cioppino was hearty with a good flavor

The Crab Pot is one of Beverly's favorite restaurants and was the perfect place to celebrate her birthday! Shay, the hostess, set up our table early and let me decorate the table before the birthday guests arrived. Our waiter Steve, was wonderful. He was attentive and took special care of our table making the birthday girl feel extremely special. The food was wonderful as always! Many of the guests had never had the strawberry rhubarb cake and determined they would return for their own celebrations. Thank you Crab Pot staff for helping us celebrate our friend!

On a visit to CA, we craved seafood - except for my vegetarian husband. Good thing that the Crab Pot has a very good veggie burger! The seafood was delicious, the service was excellent, and the location on the water is very relaxing. We'd definitely go back!

Of you like Old Bay seasoning you’d like this place. Food was a bit salty and oysters were not shucked and cleaned properly.

Great atmosphere. Great food.
Service was good for the most part. Our waitress was friendly & accommodating , but appeared to be stretched a little thin at times. Great experience. Would definitely return again.

Sat outside along the marina. The view was great and the service was very good. My friend ordered the crab cake appetizer and said they were good. The rest of us ordered fish and chips or captain’s platter, fried seafood combination. The fried fish lacked flavor but the fried calamari was great. Didn’t try the seafood boil, but it looked good.

We had an amazing adventure at this restaurant! The seafood was fresh and perfectly cooked and loved the mallets to crack our shellfish! The mai tai in a CARAFE was super yummy - Service was good and food was perfect. Cool ambiance- only complaint is the parking- limited... We will be back!

Waitress was very attentive, always made sure we were all good. We got seated immediately with our reservation and despite the crowd, we got our food served to us pretty fast. The food/drinks were amazing and the price wasn’t too bad. It was also a good environment right by the water and the noise wasn’t bad at all.
