The best fish and chips around. The Sunfish special, halibut, shrimp,veggies grilled on a stick. Wonderful. Right across street from Alki beach great view. Indoor and outside seating. Owners are great.

As a West Seattle resident, this is my "go to" fish and chips. I have had none better - anywhere. Favorites are halibut, cod and calamari. Fish is lightly breaded, calamari lightly floured and spiced. You taste main product, seafood, which are fresh and never frozen and cut by hand. Never greasy, fries are hand cut, tartar is home made... More

We took the shuttle from Alaska Junction to Alki Beach and decided to try Sunfish Seafood. I was amazed by the freshness of the calamari. We also ordered the cod with fries and they were perfect as well. The service was fast and friendly. We sat outside and enjoyed the beautiful scenery. I highly recommend this place. We were glad...

Freshly prepared by the brothers, not station managed like the other fish restaurant. I brought home the combinations: 2 oysters 2 prawns 2 salmon and no fries. Even though I had it 1 hours later due to travelling and was too full in the first place; it still tasted nice. Not too thick with flour and the salmon was good!... More

This is a fast food restaurant that is not a fast food restaurant. It is operated by two Greek brothers who formerly were fishermen. They take the orders and fry the food right in front of you. There are no fancy additions but you get fresh seafood expertly prepared (if you like battered seafood) and a little container of tartar... More

We had a mediocre clam chowder- too much filler, too few clams. The halibut fish was dry and cooked in breading- not very tasty. Our scallops were in the same breading and just okay. The fries were not good.

The food is delicious and the view of Elliott Bay and Alki beach are spectacular. We eat here about once a month and the food is consistently great.

We were entertaining our relatives from Norway and were caught up in the Seafair pirates and all of the excitement buzzing around the area. Everyone in our group was getting hungry and we decided to stop into Sunfish. The fish and chips were wonderful and we were able to eat outside and watch all of the activity in the area.... More

Good meal. The sunfish kabob was really good and my family enjoyed the cod and prawn combination. All of us liked the tartar sauce, no one asked for cocktail sauce which I suspect they probably didn't have here anyways. Lots of malt vinegars on the table. Some with garlic cloves, some with chili peppers. We liked the one with chili... More

Always love Sunfish, best calamari ever! My daughter had the fish kabob, she really liked it and it was definitely a healthier option!
