Reliably Good, Not Cheap

Ivar's Seafood Bar looks like a fast food place, and indeed, you order at the counter. But the food is not cheap, and this is a place many hit on a weekly basis for a great seafood meal without the atmosphere or priciness of one of the more restaurant-y Ivar's with tablecloths. Great fish and chips... read more

One of the few choices on the Edmonds waterfront. Besides, it's a Washington tradition. Chowder is decent. They are consistent. No matter which location you go, the food is always the same standard. That is a plus.

I had the cesear salad with halibut. The fish was perfectly done. The salad was nothing out of the ordinary. My father got the oysters&chips. The oysters were pretty awful. They were gummy and could have been fried a little longer. As for the cocktail sauce, it was not for me. It was very sweet which was off-putting for me... More

There are many seafood choices and as always, the famous Ivar's clam chowder. I also tried their Salmon chowder.

We grabbed a quick bit while traveling from Port Ludlow to Camano Island. The service was fast, pleasant and efficient, as all Ivar's that we eaten at. The food is good and served hot. The decor is standard Ivar's.

We pass through Edmonds a couple of times a year on our way to take the Ferry terminal. We have stopped for fish & chips at Ivar's Seafood Bar on our last two trips. The place is clean and nice. The fish is fresh cooked, hot, tender, and good. If you can't make it to Ivar's original Acres of Clams... More

Ivar's never fails to impress me. Their fresh seafood menu rivals most restaurants but at half the price. For $22 we feasted on Cajun cod, fries, creamy coleslaw and clam chowder; all served up in minutes by friendly staff. In and out in 30 minutes with a smile on our faces. Thanks again Ivar's for a great lunch!

Good fish, excellent chowder. Free drink refills. Bit pricey. Next to the new Key Bank. Around the corner from Chopsticks if you like good chinese.
