As Seattle moves toward both more frequent patio weather and the next phase of Washington’s Safe Start plan, Pier 57 Miners Landing opens The Seattle Great Wheel and two of its restaurants. Carefully following new guidelines and safety precautions, The Crab Pot and Fisherman’s Restaurant & Bar welcome customers to enjoy classic, fresh seafood and the iconic sea feasts, house made chowder and more. Seating is available on a first come, first served basis and available inside at 50 percent capacity and on the waterfront patios with social distancing enforced. Menus include popular seasonal selections like Fresh Alaskan Halibut and Copper River Salmon, while classics like Penn Cove Mussels, Fish & Chips and house made chowders are served up in classic and chef-driven preparations.

“Strolling the Seattle waterfront is a classic Seattle staple for any local’s summer bucket list, and fresh seafood with a view of Puget Sound is no doubt something that many have missed while staying home,” says Michael Griffith, director of operations for Great Western Pacific Inc., who owns and operates Pier 57. “Our family feels incredibly fortunate and grateful to be able to once again open our doors to share the freshest seafood and classic waterfront views with the city.”
