It’s no secret that Seattle is one of the top road trip destinations or stop offs in the entire Pacific Northwest. It deserves this attention because it has an incredible list of things to do and see. It is also very easy to access and has a very diverse population. The locals are very friendly and you can easily have a great time there.
One of the most popular spots to visit in Seattle is the Seattle Waterfront. Here, you will find all kinds of great businesses and also have a nice opportunity to view the very active waters of Puget Sound where they meet the city of Seattle.
In addition to the sightseeing, the Seattle Waterfront also makes for a great place to go to get a bite to eat. There are all kinds of great places to eat on the Seattle Waterfront, but one of my favorites is The Crab Pot.
The Crab Pot has an awesome atmosphere, friendly servers, and some of the best seafood in the city.
Our last visit to the Crab Pot also coincided with a visit to the Seattle Aquarium and a nighttime ride on the Seattle Great Wheel. This combination made for a great afternoon and evening and the Crab Pot was the perfect way to top it off.
I started my meal off with a cup of clam chowder. I mean, how could I skip that necessity? I also had a share of some sourdough bread that had been ordered for the table. We then took advantage of one of the best parts of the Crab Pot, the Seafeasts.
Seafeasts are sold by a set price per person, then butcher paper is put down on your table, and a whole variety of seafood is poured out in front of you. There are a variety of options for the Seafeast. We went with The Alaskan that night. This included king crab, Dungeness crab, snow crab, shrimp, steamed clams, Pacific mussels, sausage, corn on the cob, and red potatoes. What a delightful mix!
By the time I left, I was stuffed. Stuffed and happy, that is. I hadn’t been to the Crab Pot for a number of years and had never eaten in the Seafeast style before. Now that I have, this is gong to have to be a semi-regular thing.
The Crab Pot is a great way to perfectly complete a visit to the Seattle Waterfront.
