    Pro tip: skip the breakfast options and get a fish and chips and a chowder early in the AM before you head out of town.

    A walk up counter that's half the price of Anthony's & just as good. Local chain too. Salmon sandwich & clam chowder were top notch

    I had the seafood combo and substituted the fries for Caesar salad. It comes with calamari, shrimp, and one halibut. I usually get this when I come here and it never fails me.

    Just had the salmon and chips and it's quite decent. Fries lack salt, though.

    Salmon chowder was ok. Ordered the scallops and got little of nothing. I think this place is overrated

    Salmon chowder and white clam chowder are quite good. Red clam chowder is over-seasoned and too herby. The shrimp or crab cocktails are good grab and go options.

    The halibut and chips has no flavor. Mine was rubbery and on top is expensive. Would not recommend it

    Skip the Fish and Chips. Three tiny pieces of fish and soggy fries. Even allowing for the lower quality of airport food, these are bad.

    Ivar's is known for their chowder, and the smoked salmon and clam chowders here are the way to go. The Fish and Chips are cheaper than at Anthony's and are just as good.

    0700 flight out? No worries, grab a dungeness crab breakfast sandwich and chow down before you head back to the seafood desert of the midwest.

    Try to eat it there instead of getting it to go. Otherwise everything gets soggy in the to-go container.

    The Clam Chowder is a must (white classic version). If you are really ready to eat, get the sourdough bread bowl. Best outside of San Francisco
