Worst fish & chips ever – This was hands down the worst fish & chips we've ever had. The cod was thin and breaded way too heavy and fried way too long. The batter crust on the fish was very hard. For two people we spent nearly $30.00 on 2 small order of cod & chips, small sodas and a pitiful shrimp cocktail, and I would have had a better meal at Long John Silvers.
Over cooked and not good... – I was told this was a great place for local fish and chips. What I found was water based chowder, that tasted like chicken stalk and over cooked fish that I paid over $20.00 for an adult and child. No value what so ever.
A Seattle Institution – You know you're it's real when you see them wheel out a tub of lard for the deep fryers! I am also a big fan of Spud F&C, but Totem has got them beat. Across the street from the Ballard locks, this place has been around for a long time and for good reason. The fillet's are Cod (not Pollock), crispy and incredibly flavorful (thanks to the lard). The fries are hot and crispy and the tartar is unparalleled. A must eat if you're anywhere near the neighborhood. Has Ivar's beat cold.
