Dining Around The Desert: The Crab Pot, La Quinta

CrabPot LaQuinta 400 Palm Springs Real EstateOne of the great things about The Crab Pot in Old Town La Quinta is the large family friendly patio for dining. Crab Pot also features a newly remodeled bar area inside with large flat screen TV’s for the sports crowd.

On our recent visit Bill and I shared a half BBQ Chicken and a large order of King Crab legs. We seem to hit Crab Pot about once a year. The food is decent but not special enough to warrant frequent visits. That said Crab Pot is a good choice for the kids or large parties as they offer lot of fun finger food.

The Crab Pot’s specialty is their Seafeast for two or more. It includes a variety of fresh seafood, steamed with a variety of spices. They poor it out on your table on butcher paper, give you a bib and “let you go at it.”

Say hello to Melissa who serves at the bar five nights a week. Melissa is one of the most engaging and customer focused servers in the desert. While we were dining quite a few locals came and went and she addressed each patron by name. Happy hour is Monday – Friday from 4PM to 7PM and includes food and drink specials.

The Crab Pot is located at 78121 Avenida La Fonda in Old Town La Quinta (760) 564-7333
