    Fish and chips are what they are known for. Order can't go wrong.

    Huge place, gear outdoor seating on the water. Mussels were really good.

    I advise getting reservations, summer lines can be brutal. But this is probably my favorite Seafood restaurant. I've never had a fish dish that was less than amazing!

    Everything is good! Get enough feed for the seagulls.

    Clam chowder and other seafood go-to spot. A bit cliché? Yes. Doesn't make it taste any worse.

    This is one of those old California places that reminds me of the 60's.

    Ivar's has plenty of locations around town, from casual fish-and-chip stands to the fancy waterfront Acres of Clams, but all of them serve up piping-hot fried fish and chips, a classic Seattle dish. Read more

    I like Ivar's though I prefer Eliott's (better service, more upscale). For different occasions.

    Shocked. For the price of things, you'd think there'd be more. The clam chowder was mostly potatoes, barely any clam! So disappointed... what a waste of a trip :(

    The Mixed Grill Trio was fantastic! The best seafood I've ever had. 🐟

    Management drop the ball. Weather has been nice the last few days and their whole deck is not open because it is not ready yet!!! They missed a party of 8 tonight. Two hour wait ya right.

    Try the chowder trio sampler, the seafood chowder was our fave. The fried prawns were tremendous. The dungeoness crab & goat cheese dip is out of this world.

    Definitely get the baked oysters Rockefeller!

    The seagulls outside are possessed beyond belief. You take your life in your hands to enjoy your fish al fresco.

    I had the Seafood Cocktail and Combinations (halibut + king crabs) - both were excellent dishes! Reserve time, service can be very slow.. Reserve even more time if you go for the king crab legs....

    Pleasently surprised with all the gluten free choices! Blackened cod tacos were to die for! Yummmm!

  • TT

    Great! Take crab with goad cheese as a starter. Avoid sea cocktail as a starter since there was ketchup in it which is awful. Anyway the rest we had was unexpectedly fabulous. Try local beer too.

    TT · February 12, 2013
  • Shelly S.

    Great happy hour and the waiter was awesome! He brought a piece of birthday cake for free for my husband without me having to ask!!

    Shelly Strobeck · February 7, 2013

    There's an indoor heated patio so don't let the cold keep you from enjoying the best fish and chips on planet earth.

    Don't let the clientele or the screaming children with families fool you - Ivar's has some very delicious food. If it's on the menu, try the smoked salmon orecchiette.
