Went on a recommendation as Ivar's is famous for their fish and chips. Went with the halibut three piece fish and chips and was disappointed. The fish was lightly breaded, I was expecting light and flakey and instead experienced dense and chunky. Flavour was ok,...More

My husband and I ate here while staying in Seattle pre-cruise. Had the jumbo prawn. Was very good. Enjoyed sitting outside and watching the seagulls and waterfront area. Would definitely eat here again and recommend it.

Right on the water, seafood is their specialty - perhaps the best halibut I've ever had! Easy to walk to or to access via public transportation. One of the stops for the Hop On and Off shuttle is right nearby, as is Ye Olde Curiosity...More

The fish was sooooo good!! It is a fast (sea)food experience. I had the fried salmon and fries. Order taken and food placed in front of me in a matter of minutes. The salmon was hot and delicious. Four mid sized slices of the moist...More
