Fish n chips and cup of chowder

Good food and fast. Chowder here never disappoints. Free refill on the soda just ask. Service fast and efficient even with the long line.

Typical fish and chips. Food was fine, but nothing special. Actually about average for airport food.

Clams were fried extra crispy which made them quite tasty served with their dip along with the added crunch. Fried halibut was extremely pleasing to the palate, not dry and not to crispy, yet tender and moist, the right amount of breading! We also ate at the Burien, WA establishment and found the meal just as great tasting as the... More

Wanted a quick bite while passing through the airport. Wasn't sure about stopping by as I didn't want anything seafood in the morning. I have heard people rave about their seafood breakfast sandwich, but it just wouldn't be my thing. I stopped and looked at the menu anyways and saw that they have breakfast sandwiches with sausage so I ordered... More

During our layover, I wanted some clam chowder. Everyone knows that Ivar's has the best clam chowder and they did not disappoint! My husband and I split a combo number one which is chowder, 4 pc fish and chips, and a drink for like $15. It was perfect for the two of us! The fish was amazing, and the chowder... More

This Ivar's is at the mall and when I stay overnight, I get take-out from this Ivar's which is always fresh, tastes delicious and is budget-friendly. Check it out!

Lunch at Ivar's with a sampler of their chowders...great idea, and great chowder. We shared Fish and chips, and they were delicious. Wine selection was excellent with a large number of Washington vineyards represented. ($$)

If you're reading this enroute to Seattle Tacoma International Airport (aka SeaTac) and wondering where to eat during that obnoxious layover, Ivar's is the place. Some have reviewed an Ivar's based near downtown Seattle, be clear it's not the same in menu options or pricing. Inside SeaTac's main food court, this is where I'll be on my layover or preflight...

Great food, great atmosphere! Wait staff was excellent and made the lunch experience very comfortable. We ate outside under cover from the sun and it made it more special.
