Pretty good and fast service

Seattle airport has a lot of eatery among different gates and can be tough to choose. We checked out a few nearby before we settled for this one. There is one sit down seafood bar, forgot the name, that has prices at least twice of this place. And we went over to the Wolfgang Express at the other... read more

Had their scallop and chips with a cup of white chowder. Scallop breading was sliding off and soggy. Chowder was a bit thin. That being said, the flavours were there and was better than expected for airport fare.

The seafood is top-notch and the view next to the ferry is wonderful. P.S. We always get Ivar's clam chowder on the Bainbridge Ferry!

Had a bowl of smoked salmon chowder here during a layover. Tony Bourdain recommended this place on his series of the same name. While the chowder was certainly good and tasted a lot like smoked salmon, there might have been one flake of fish in the entire bowl. For seven dollars, you ought to at least have a couple of...

I have been going to Ivars for decades and love their food. It has gotten rather expensive, so now I don't dine with them as much as I once did. It is a must eat place for visitors due to Ivars legacy.

Their clam chowder is the best! Whenever I stop in Seattle, I run to that place between the flights to get my favorite soup. You need to understand that I am NOT a clam chowder fan. But this one I love a lot! Always come back.

I wouldn't consider them fast food...fish is outstanding, and you can't leave without trying their clam chowder. I wish they delivered...across the country, but will have to wait until my next trip.
