Tasty clam chowder

Really like the claim chowder in the U.S. And it seems so far that Ivar's makes one of the best.. Good sized portions and very tasty.. Recommended.

Had the Fish & Chips and Dungenous Crab Cocktail. OUTSTANDING!!! The fish was perfect. Loved the crab cocktail. Wife had the white clam chowder and wanted to go back for more, but we had to board the plane. We waited a little longer than I thought for the Fish & Chis, but saw they made each order when it was... More

I have had Ivar's at both the Burien store and at the mall and both times it has been great. Just good fresh fish, cooked just right and with any condiments you could want. The chips are good and the coleslaw is really good too.

Good fish n chips for a quick service restaurant. Can't really comment on price since all airport restaurants have to charge more to cover high rent charges.

I love Ivar's and don't get it very often living on the East side of the state. Ivar's always has consistent flavor and crispness, and this was no different. We came during the busy lunch rush, but were served quickly. The fish was flaky and piping hot. The corresponding chips (fries) were excellent as well. This meal hit the spot... More

I was so happy to find something delicious while waiting at the airport. I had the clam chowder and it was the best I've had in a long time. Lots of clams and potatoes with a good thick cream base. Not to be missed if you have time at the airport.

I love Ivar's, but sometimes the food at the airport location can be hit or miss depending on busy they are. The staff is always pleasant and the portions are good-sized, but if they're really busy and there's a line the quality kind of suffers. To explain, I ordered a wild salmon Caesar salad and the grilled wild salmon platter,... More

I've heard tales about the great seafood, so when I had a chance to grab some grub while waiting for a flight, I thought I was lucky. I spent the extra for the halibut fish and chips. It was small, rubbery and overlooked. Maybe that was my mistake for ordering such a great fish instead of cod for fish and... More

. . .The take out line is full of flight attendants and pilots. Clam chowder is as good as the full Ivars restaurants and the fish and chips are always good. Always get clam chowder and shrimp cocktail for the flight home.

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.
