We had dinner at the Chandler's Crabhouse Saturday. The ambience was great. The view of Union Lake was spectacular. I ordered the crab cake dinner and it was outstanding. Most other places the crab cakes have too much fat in it. This one was great.

I visited here in late February. Their salmon is simply the best I have ever eaten. So good, I'm writing this review almost two weeks after my visit. Okay, my last name is Chandler, do that is what caught my attention. But no relation. Best salmon ever. It was rewarding. Crab cakes were pretty amazing as well.

Top shelf dining experience! Simply a stunning dining room, featuring 40 foot floor to ceiling windows, and right on the water. Seared ahi is the best! Generous servings, cold white wine, great waiters and friendly staff makes this our go to in South Lake Union.

Once again Chandlers has proven to be just a so-so restaurant, but charges extreme prices because of the location. We ordered the Crab Cake Appetizer. It was very good, but not worth $18.00 for 1 Crab Cake.

Had the Alaskan Bairdi crab and local craft beer. Good meal in the lounge area with full menu. Nice night out but a bit pricey.

Whenever we come down to seattle for the boat show we always find ourselves having lunch and dinner at Chandler's. The service is always friendly and fast, and the food is always fabulous.

We had Thanksgiving Dinner here. The prixe fixed menu was reasonable given the quality and quantity of the meals. The salmon was the freshest I’ve ever had and it was seasoned and cooked perfectly. The prime rib was so tender and flavorful. The mashed potatoes were whipped to buttery perfection and the cranberry relish was yum! Service was impeccable.

This restaurant has fabulous food, the best staff I have ever encountered from host, hostess, checkroom, table bussing, bar staff and waiters. It also has a fantastic view of the harbor, the hills and just beauty. The appetizers and soups are excellent. I had dungeness crab cake as a main course that was both very large, perfectly prepared and delicious.... More
