The Crab Pot Seafood Restaurant
Located on Pier 57, the Crab Pot specializes in seafood, but also offers a variety of salads, burgers and sandwiches. Being a family-friendly restaurant, there is a kids menu for children 12 and under. Grown ups can share something off the seafood menu like the Pacific Clambake, which comes with clams, oysters, mussels, crab, shrimp, halibut and salmon.
We got the Pacific Clambake for two. They brought over a large bowl of seafood, potatos and corn. The potatos were undercooked but that was the only complaint. I personally don't care too much for the mussels, clams and oysters but I take my wife's word that they were really good. I went straigt for the crabs and shrimp and they were some of the freshest I've ever tasted. Eating the crab with the little wooden hammer they give you ads a lot of fun to the meal and actually worked better for me than the more standard 'nut cracker' tools you get in other restaurants.
You start with the warm sourdough bread and then the steaming bowl of fresh seafood, andullie, potatoes, and corn arrives. Poured out on the butchers paper covering the table you are invited to feast with both your eyes and hands. Drinks are plentiful and cheap, concidering that they are served in an half carafe.
The staff are attentive and want you to enjoy your visit and to have a good time while partaking in this unique dinning experience. As a former resident of Virginia where these types of meals become a party I have to say that The Crab Pot really took me home.
