Awesome food, but expensive.

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.

The service was quick and the food was really good. This place feels more like the fast food type restrauant but if your after a good meal this is where to stop!

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.

My esteemed spouse and I recently had a long flight from Seattle. While waiting for our flight we enjoyed a lovely lunch from Ivar's. We used the carryout restaurant and sat in the main terminal, listening to live entertainment and people watching. The spouse enjoyed a generous portion of the fish and chips as well as a cup of clam... More

My wife really was crazing clam chowder all week. It wasn't till as we were killing time for our flight home, she finally decided to get some. We went here for it, over Anthony's. I ordered the seafood combo, after the man at register sold me on it (not sure if there was a contest or not). It was just... More

I had the halibut and chips and paid for an extra piece of fish. The pieces of fish were not very big, but they were much better than typical fish fillets. The fish was lightly breaded and very tasty. I substituted cole slaw for the fries and had a Diet Coke. At nearly $22.00 it was a pricey lunch, but... More

Not in the mood for breakfast at 5:30 am, was happy to be able to order a cup of clam chowder at Ivars. Tasty! Followed that with a Dungeness Cocktail which had crab with no taste. Don't bother!
