This classic Seattle room is splendid but why eat in when they have a takeaway counter and a deck where you can watch tourists and locals feed fries to the seagulls of Lake Union.
Once the best, but not as good lately – This place used to have the best salmon in town. I've ordered the salmon and it just isnt as good as it used to be. I ve had to change to halibut. The outdoor seafood bar also changed the fresh salmon and it is worse than what was served when the price was 3 dollars less a few months ago. They say its an upgrade in quality but I disagree
Avoid the restaurant--Horrible customer service! – My parents were visiting from out of town and I brought them to Ivar's for some authentic Pacific Northwest seafood. The food was okay (if overpriced), but the terrible customer service was what ruined our experience. Our dinner lasted over two hours due to an inattentive waiter, and we never did receive the drink refills we repeatedly asked for. To top it off, the waiter billed us incorrectly, and, a month later, we are still waiting for the mistake to be remedied on our credit card! This place may be okay for happy hour, but avoid the indoor restaurant!
Drink in the lakefront view and a microbrew or two at this Seattle seafood institution. – In Short
Residents bring guests here because the restaurant is so representative of the Seattle area's past. Housed in a replica of an Indian longhouse and decorated with dugout canoes, Salmon House provides visitors with Native American artifacts, a stellar waterfront view and of course, seafood. Salmon and black cod are broiled over a smoky alder fire and served with corn bread. Entrees include pasta and seafood, plus fried halibut or cod and french fries.
great place, so far... – possibly the best happy hour in the city of seattle - generous portions of excellent food for very reasonable prices. who wants a bet that the prices will go up with the recent remodel?!!?!?! i for one hope not!!
Great Happy Hour! – I've been going to Ivar's Salmon House for my entire life. The happy hour is awesome, 7 days a week, twice a day for 2 hours. The salmon tacos and salmon skewers are a great snack on the cheap!
Killer Happy Hour – Ivar's Salmon House has the best happy hour in Seattle! The Whalemaker Lounge is the home of some interesting artifacts. Ask one of the servers to point out the "Whalemakers" to you when you go!
repeat customer – This place is worth a special trip. They have it all - great view, wonderful ambience, and of course wonderful salmon. My waiter helped me choose just the right kind of salmon - cooked to perfection, and the meal was topped with a wonderful dessert. This is a great romantic place - don't do Seattle without eating here.
LOVE IT – I love Ivars. It's the best seafood restaraunt in the world. It has fresh salmon all the time. I personally hate salmon but i love it at ivars. You should try it.
happy hour at its finest – all ages, college kids to family parties. On the water front, and 2.50 everything. cant beat this place period!!!
Why do people like this place? – Sorry folks, this is NOT good seafood and it's certainly not worth the price. Bland, limp fries and badly breaded fish are not my idea of tastey. Seattle has much better to offer.
