Whatever – After reading the reviews on city search I decided to give this place a try. We arrived at closing and the staff was courtious and agreed to serve us which was cool. I thought the staff was great for a place where I'm sure they get paid peanuts. The food however, while not disgusting, was more like something I would expect in SLC or some other land locked city. Seattle has amazing seafood and I seriously doubt this place has any local regulars. It is basically for tourists like myself who decided to roll the dice. I has fish and chips, chowder, and coleslaw. The slaw was fresh but not very good and the rest tasted like it came off a cisco truck which it probably did.
HORRIBLE...HORRIBLE...STAY AWAY – i have never been so horrified ...the restaurant was filthy and as i was standing there waiting for my order i actually saw the prep cook eating the leftover right in plain view...could not believe my eyes...
there was tons of garbage on the floor....argh..need i say more ...i don't think this place ir going to be in business much longer... btw the food was terrible..
the ceasar i ordered...most of the lettuce was wilted and the dressing was a cheap vinegrette...also the fish i order was undercooked and the fries were at least a 2 days old...
Beware of the salmon and chips – Great location but it can get crowded during tourist season. Service was good. The place could have been cleaner, some of the tables weren't wiped down. I ordered salmon and chips. Beware--the batter on the salmon was way too thick and greasy. The batter wasn't cooked all the way through because of the thickness and very doughy. A friend ordered the chicken focaccia sandwich and said it was good. The cod had a thinner, lighter batter and was crispy.
Best crab cakes and prawns!! – Nice location, fast service, and excellent food. They have the best crab cakes I have ever ate, and their battered prawns are delicious as well. I've ate there multiple times and the food and service are consistent!
Perfect place on the waterfront – Good clams, tasty chowder and awesome fish tacos. They have pitchers of beer available and outdoor seating. Definitely the best way to spend a summer afternoon in Seattle!
Editorial Review – Waterfront fish house serves affordable and speedy fish and chips, clam chowder and other seafood favorites to a touristy crowd.
Closes at 8pm SHARP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! – They list a closeing time of 8pm but it's actually 7pm. Try to get hot food and good service after 7:30pm. Good luck
Great alternative for cod! – Cod is really good - flatter pieces than Ivars, but have the great Panko crust. Yum. French fries are excellent w/ pepper added. Get a 3 piece to go and take it down the dock and eat w/ the view.
What happened to the one in Bellevue Sqr? :-(
They're Great!! – What a place to have a pitcher of beer, fresh steamed clams and watch the world go by on a great sunny afternoon on the Seattle Waterfront. This place is what Seattle's all about!!
Right next to the aquarium – Brrr.. Valentines day in seattle, watching sea otters then having the tastiest clam chowder ever. Good prices, great fish and chips, great fun next door.
