This is the place for you if you want great seafood at a good price. This is basically the same food as the sit down restaurant but no fancy trappings. There is a place to sit, just no tablecloth or waitstaff.

First the chocolate cake was AMAZING! However mine and my boyfriends halibut was over cooked. I got the halibut and the mushrooms, the mushroom sauce helped make the fish less dry. The waitress was a little overwhelmed. Over the food was good enough I would...More

The view from this restaurant makes it worth the visit, but the food is also exceptional. I've tried clam chowder at a bunch of places around Seattle, and I think Ivars has the best. Also try any of their salmon dishes. Highly recommend.

Check out our Pier 54 Fish Bar, which offers take-out service of Ivar's classics including award-wining fish ‘n chips, chowder and other seafood favorites. As part of the local lore, feel free to feed a few fries to the seagulls. It’s a photo opportunity worth sharing!
