We had spent a few hours walking around the Pike Place Market, then we wandered down the hill to the waterfront. We were hungry, and looking for some place to eat. We considered eating at Ivars, but we had just eaten at one of the smaller Ivars restaurants the night before. We found ourselves at Pier 57, and there were a few places to eat here. The Crab Pot was one of these, and I think the only one to have their menu displayed our front. The menu looked interesting so we decided to try it.
We went in and were seated quickly. The waitress took our drink orders and brought my wife’s ice tea quickly. She came back soon afterward with my diet Pepsi, but warned me it might be flat. I tried it, and it was slightly flat. She said a guy was changing the tank, and brought me another drink shortly.
She came to take our orders. My wife wanted the Shrimp Stuffed Salmon. But I was undecided. I asked the waitress for her recommendation. She said the Seafeast was really good, but a bit much for lunch. The Seafeast is a bunch steamed shellfish of different varieties that are dumped on your table, and you are given small mallets to break them apart to eat them. She suggested either the Salmon BLT, or the Seafood Puttanesca. I said the Salmon BLT sounded weird, but she said it was really good. So I ordered the Salmon BLT. We also ordered a bowl of the clam chowder. She warned my wife that the Shrimp Stuffed Salmon would take 20 minutes to bake. We were okay with that.
Our clam chowder came, and it was very good. We polished it off in no time. Then our main food came out. My Salmon BLT was really good. The portion sizes were pretty good, and I was full before I finished my fries. My wife’s shrimp stuff salmon was excellent also.
I would love to come back here at dinner time and try the Seafeast! I recommend this place if you are in the area.
