Ate at this location and one in Shoreline and they're both the same. $13 for very small portions for lunch is pretty ridiculous for a fast food place. I could get a full meal at a Chillis/Applebees, etc for that much with better food. The best part was their drink machine with various soft drinks.

Living on the east side of WA, it's a treat to grab a college favorite meal of fish and chips with a cup of chowder. But....pieces of fish were smaller than they used to be and the price ($15!), more than I remember. Guess it was worth it, but might think twice next time since the fries were pretty tasteless,...

Been to Ivar's Restaurant in Seattle, so when they opened a fastfood take out at SEATAC (Seattle and Tacoma International Airport), I was elated. Been to this place a couple of times when flight time allows and when hungry. I always ordered the calamarie (solo) without the fries, they take off $1.39 without fries. You get a smaller serving of... More

This is usually a normal stop for me on my way thru. Chowder is amazing!! And it's a good thing it is because the help is horrible!! Poor attitudes And customer service. If you don't like your job find something else. I'll find something else on my travels through from now on.

The chowder and fish and chips are very good - a little pricey though. The location down on the pier is our favorite.

although i'd read some good reviews, this was a big disappointment. the fish was tough and the fries tasted fishy and of old grease. can't think of anything positive to say except they were fast - which is usually a benefit in the airport...

Arriving in Seattle after a flight from Newark, we had a breakfast fish sandwich at the airport.....Smoked salmon, egg and cheese on an English muffin. It is a small fast food restaurant at the airport but it was a chance to sample something that makes Seattle unique.

If you want to taste real fish and chips, try Ivar's at Sea-Tac between concourse b and c. Ivar's has been doing this for over 50 years in Seattle. It's expensive, but it's worth it; you'll never have it this good again.

Landed at SeaTac famished and waited in a long line. "Better be worth it," I mumbled under my breath. IT WAS! DH and I shared Dungeness crab cocktail, smoked salmon chowder, and fried clams and cole slaw. I hate Seattle 's weather, but I love Seattle' s seafood - and this is some of the best.
