Crab Pot at Miners Landing, Pier 57

How I heard of this place: My friend Leslie began working there when we first met, as roommates back in 2002. This was only my second time visiting the establishment and it makes me wonder why I don’t do it more often?

Type of cuisine: Seafood, crab, lobster, salmon, burgers, salads, shrimp and shellfish aplenty!

Ambiance: With a lobby for crowded evenings, where patrons may leisurely await their tables, the Crab Pot delivers ambiance from the first steps into Miners Landing.

Indoor and outdoor seating (with heaters) along the pier. Very casual. Perfect for children, large parties, or a first date!

What I ordered: The three of us in our party ordered off of the Seafeast menu. One of us was craving crab, so we opted for the “The Westport” ($23.95 per person) which included dungeness crab, snow crab, shrimp in the shell, steamed clams and Pacific muscles, Andouille sausage, corn on the cob and red potatoes in their jackets. A warm, sliced sourdough loaf with whipped butter was served when our wooden boards, mallets, mini forks and bibs were offered.

On a return visit, Thursday, 11 September 2014Returning with four friends, a couple from Bellingham and another from 60-miles outside of Sydney, Australia, they were determined to check out this tourist attraction on the waterfront. Sadly, none of them actually wanted to order off of the Seafeast menu,

so we stuck with a la carte items. Two of us enjoyed the Wild Alaskan Salmon Filet ($17.95 each), lightly seasoned and cooked over an open flame, served with seasonal vegetables and red potatoes.

What I loved: I loved the potatoes dipped in butter. The shrimp were awesome and the crab perfectly delectable and plentiful.

Crab Pot Indoor Dining

Why I loved it: I loved that it was warm enough to sit outside. I most loved the fact that our tables were covered in butcher paper before the two large bowls of food were brought over and dumped straight onto the table. Sides of melted butter for dipping also accompanied the large bowls of seafood and vegetables.
