#1681 - The Crab Cracker, Kirkland, WA - 2/16/2012

The Crab Cracker web site states that it is "the Eastside's most established seafood restaurant, and arguably one of the very best in the entire Northwest." I like the "arguably," which seems a little tentative for your own web site. But then, it is also clearly not one of the best restaurants in the northwest.

The food is rather average here, as is the bar, but both the service and regulars at the bar were friendly and engaging. And of course "average" Dungeness crab is one of the better treats on earth.

The old warehouse sort of setting makes all the boating and fishing paraphernalia more charming and at home than in, say, an Anthony's. If you go, try to get there at Happy Hour (4pm-6pm), when a huge range of food items are half off.
