I was looking forward to my day out and eating here. However, they have changed from their great fries to the shoestring style. NOT very good. They really need to change back to the original. The rest of the meal was fine as was the service.

Honestly? I've had better. While the fish itself tasted ok I was neither enamored with the coating nor the fries (many of which weren't even in one piece). What I liked the least is the number of tables that weren't cleaned up (I wound up doing it myself for our table and watched 2 other women doing the same). Lack... More

$18 for three pieces of Halibut, so soaked in grease that it took several napkins just to get the grease off the surface. The thin pieces of Halibut were tasteless -- actually left such a bad after taste that we had to go to another restaurant for ice cream to get rid of the after taste. Certainly not worth $18.

This is a family favorite of ours. I have to admit, when I want to go out I suggest this place and my husband says yes 99% of the time!

For fast seafood this is the best place in Edmonds. The food is excellent and consistent (we've been going here for years.) But what makes this particular Ivar's stand out are the employees, they are always friendly and fast and helpful. Like I said, Ivar Haglund himself would be very proud of this location!

Your Seattle area visit cannot be considered complete without a meal at one of the many Ivar's Seafood Bars. This local "fast food" favorite is a staple among locals. The fish and chips were sooo incredible - we returned three times during our two week visit!

Our fish and chips here were very fresh and delicious! They also have a very good tartar sauce. The restaurant was clean as well.

Definitely eat in. The food is so much better when you eat it as soon as you get it..any time that I have ever drove it home it just didn't stay as good. But delicious regardless. Love the clams and chips

This is my and my wife's favorite spot to grab fish & chips in Edmonds. We've been to Arnies and Anthonys down by the water and will continue to go there when guests come to town, but when it's just us and we want good food without all of the pretense of a fancier restaurant we come here to Ivars....
