Makes the airport layover worth the time! Seafood central! At 7 am, the front gal, a Filipina, was fantastic. I ordered one thing, ate that, and then another. She handled all the customers well. When I asked if the salmon chowder was good, she said yes and gave me a tiny cup sample. It was amazing. I went back later... More

It's been a while since we were there, but we still marvel that we had a good meal in an airport! Fish & chips were so tasty, fresh & hot. Food court could use more seating

Stopped at Ivan's on the wharf. Food pretty much like fast food sea food any where. It was good but nothing special. The prices were good but the portions were on the small side mostly just French fries.

Had the fish and chips with cup of chowder and a drink - $16. Fish was only ok and the fries were cold. I wasn't expecting much but even this was a letdown. Good luck to anyone else trying this.

This is the best claim chowder in the world - bar none. The perfect balance of potatoes and clams - in a rich white base that is not too heavy but certainly not watery. Great flavor - it is perfection. Located in the main terminal - the service is excellent - the line moves fast. Its worth the walk.

This is a very nice location in the Sea-Tac airport. Great to be able to grab a quick, but delicious dinner before boarding the plane. Fish was cooked to perfection and piping hot. The combo came with fries, which were okay, but next time I will switch fries for coleslaw. The fries weren't crisp, they had a soggy consistency, but... More

Get the halibut versus the cod for a light texture and taste. Cod is great, but the halibut makes it even better! Great service every time I come through the Seattle airport.

I've always wanted to eat at Ivar's and it looks like this might be my last chance. This location is take-out only. We ordered the halibut and chips. The halibut was perfectly cooked to a light golden brown and oh so delicate. Wonderful! The chips were soggy. The high rating is for the halibut.

I like all the Ivar's. Both the restaurants and the Seafood Bars. But for travelers this one is accessible. It is inside SeaTac Airport and inside TSA security. So get through the checkpoint and sit down for a nice fish and chips or Clam Chowder.......white, not red! Hey and not Salmon chowder... get the white.

Passing through Seattle I thought some clam chowder would be good. It would appear that there is room for improvement as the operation is somewhat disorganized, so if you are in a hurry you might want to make another choice. As to quality, the chowder was warm on the top part, and only a bit warmer deeper into the bowl...definitely... More
