Wanted a quick bite while passing through the airport. Wasn't sure about stopping by as I didn't want anything seafood in the morning. I have heard people rave about their seafood breakfast sandwich, but it just wouldn't be my thing. I stopped and looked at the menu anyways and saw that they have breakfast sandwiches with sausage so I ordered... More

During our layover, I wanted some clam chowder. Everyone knows that Ivar's has the best clam chowder and they did not disappoint! My husband and I split a combo number one which is chowder, 4 pc fish and chips, and a drink for like $15. It was perfect for the two of us! The fish was amazing, and the chowder... More

This Ivar's is at the mall and when I stay overnight, I get take-out from this Ivar's which is always fresh, tastes delicious and is budget-friendly. Check it out!

Lunch at Ivar's with a sampler of their chowders...great idea, and great chowder. We shared Fish and chips, and they were delicious. Wine selection was excellent with a large number of Washington vineyards represented. ($$)

If you're reading this enroute to Seattle Tacoma International Airport (aka SeaTac) and wondering where to eat during that obnoxious layover, Ivar's is the place. Some have reviewed an Ivar's based near downtown Seattle, be clear it's not the same in menu options or pricing. Inside SeaTac's main food court, this is where I'll be on my layover or preflight...

Great food, great atmosphere! Wait staff was excellent and made the lunch experience very comfortable. We ate outside under cover from the sun and it made it more special.

There is nothing like having a good meal before a flight and Ivar's definitely is a good meal. I love the fish & chips. My husband was impressed by the chowder.

The Ivar's I tried was in C termial--it was excellent! The clam chowder here may have been better than what I enjoyed at another Ivar's location. The service was quick, friendly and accurate. The decor was attractive. Everything one could hope for at a small restaurant!

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
