It´s become a good tradition going there whenever I´m in Seattle and having some fish & chips with vinegar at Jack´s place. You get good and reliable level of quality. Nothing fancy, but fresh and straightforward served.

After wandering through Pike Place Market, we had a hankering for some fresh fish. Fish tacos sounded good, and they turned out to be very good. However, we had to wait for quite a long time -- maybe they had to go get the fish from the dock?

This is a market eating place....a couple of fryers behind the fish stand with a few bar stools. The cioppino is outstanding and the fried fish is real good. If you want sit down and fancy don't stop here. If you want awesome pacific coast seafood street food...wait in line and buy buy buy!

Jack's Fish Spot is right across from Pikes Market and a tasty place to get some lunch. Their fish and chips are awesome with fresh cut fries make on site. Also check out the fresh Shrimp Cocktail. Yummy.

The staff are rude and wears dirty clothing. The fish are greasy and burnt. I ordered a 3 pieces of cod and got a greasy fries and 3 pieces of burned 2 inches long code fish. Tourist trap definitely

Go elsewhere...I was really excited to try this place after reading great reviews. We ordered the fried halibut, which came with fries, another order of fries, and a shrimp cocktail. The shrimp cocktail was made with mushy, fishy tasting salad shrimp and was so unpleasing. We each tried 1 shrimp and could not eat any more. The fries ALL tasted... More

We were actually looking for Pike Place Chowder, but came across Jack's first and thought the prices were reasonable so we placed our order - 2 bowls of chowder and an order of garlic fries. Our chowder came piping hot since it was sitting in a big pot and was pretty yummy and chock full of seafood. Sadly, the fries,... More

No waiters! You order from a pleasant guy, wait for your order to be given to you then try to find a seat at a stainless steel counter. (They could use more seating.) The fried cod we had was good (a bit over cooked) and plenty of freshly cut fries (stored in large plastic containers in water). They had a... More

Lots of people lined up ordering, I figured it must be good. Not much seating and the seating that is available is not particularly nice. I got a number of raw oysters that came with cocktail sauce. A little hard to juggle and eat while standing up. Much of the salty oyster juice sloshed out, the thing I love most... More

Had the traditional fish and chips with tarter sauce. It was hot, flaky, juicy and delicious fish and the tarter sauce was tasty too! Those around me were enjoying fresh oysters and crab. Grab a stool, sit in this market, and enjoy some of the freshest fish and chips you can have in the area. Enjoy!
