Arguably the best oyster happy hour in the city, this downtown corridor location is tough for parking but with valet and easy cab access. Great for large parties, with a private room in back. Order steelhead when it is available, these guys know fish.
Go for the daily happy hour 3 p.m. - 6 p.m. when bivavles are just a buck a shuck and brews and bubbly are specially priced at $3 and $5.
Chef Kevin Davis is cooking up delicious fried chicken, crab cakes, breakfast biscuits and gumbo. The shellfish bar is stunning! And there are multiple group dining spaces for a party of 8 to 80! Also the restaurant validates for discounted parking in the Stewart Street garage.
A handsome downtown dining room that does righteous by all things from the sea. Hit the oyster happy hour, indulge in some locally sourced Dungeness crab. Or, slide into one of the comfy seats and study up the lunch/dinner menu. Chef Kevin Davis has Southern roots and he often shares. If they're on the menu, don't miss the fried green tomatoes.
Lovely oyster bar; amazing, fresh seafood; friendly staff; large portions. Not many folks are aware, but there's a TV in the (large) bar area, which makes the perfect place to watch the Big Game, as it's not likely to be packed. Bonus: 7 day/wk happy hour in the bar, too!
"Love Dinner" on February 12, 2012 – Tonight we had the most wonderful caviar with hot, buttery, buckwheat blini. Lobster thermador with crab legs added and fresh creamed spinach topped with mashed potatoes with a crispy top. We feel sorry for anyone who missed this Valentine's week special which accompanied the regular menu items. Chef Kevin truly out did himself tonight. His food is always exceptional but this meal was fit for a king and queen. Thank you Kevin and wonderful staff!
Citysearch Editorial Review – Steelhead Diner chef Kevin Davis’ latest venture, Blueacre Seafood, involves a return home to the former Oceanaire spot downtown where he once worked as executive chef for five years. Brazilian cherry wood paneling, marlin skin-patterned booths and environmentally conscious artwork by local artist Joseph Rossano can be found in this modernized room that seats over a hundred. The menu features one of the more extensive selection of raw oysters in the city, along with a few southern-inspired dishes, like seafood and andouille sausage gumbo or fried green tomatoes. Homage is paid to the bounty of the northwest with Totten Inlet clams, mussels and geoduck, as well as the freshest fish, lobsters and crab from all over the United States. Those who lack a passion for the briny offerings of the sea, never fear: staples like humanely-raised steaks, pork and chicken will please even the finickiest of palates. Post-dinner treats play on our nostalgia for the past, and you might find yourself fighting your son for that last bite of PB&J cake or Whoopie Pie.
Quintessential American Seafood – Seattleites know great seafood. No question about that! So we’re positive this mouth-watering seafood restaurant, which opened last week, is sure to make a mark on the local dining scene. Blueacre Seafood has taken over the former Oceanaire and touts Chef Kevin Davis, who will be serving up traditional American seafood dishes—and at a lower price point that its predecessor.
With a menu that changes like the tide, Chef Kevin Davis (also owner of Steelhead Dinner) draws upon the vast array of seafood available from the United States coastal waters, as well as carefully chosen, sustainably-farmed freshwater species, oysters, clams, and mussels.
Some top menu items include 12 different varieties of fresh oysters, The Ultimate Blue Crabcake, Artichoke Crusted Alaskan Halibut, Seafood & Andouille Sausage Gumbo, Black & Bleu Pork Chops and to end the night, chocolate Whoppie Pie.
A trend we’ve notice and truly enjoy at Blueare Seafood (and other local restaurants, as well) is that half and full-sized portions are available on the menu. It’s great to be able to order multiple small dishes to share or for those with small appetites, but also have the option to order larger portions.
If you’re in the mood for seafood, Blueacre Seafood is a sure bet.
