We were looking for someplace to get a late-lunch/early-dinner in the Shelton area. Since the Squaxin Island Seafood Bar was listed as #1 in the Shelton area we thought we could not go wrong. Unfortunately I can not recommend this place. It is in a casino so you wander through a smoke filled room (unless you are lucky enough to... More

If you go during happy hour 4-6pm they have great deals on the food. You get shrimp, crab, mussels, oysters, chowders, and more. Seating though is very limited so go early. Great staff and service.

We hit the Seafood Bar at least once a week. Regular foods can be ordered in the bar, but their specialty is the seafood. Fresh, cooked to taste in front of you and you throw the shells in the counter trough surrounding the bar. Cocktails and beer available too! Good stuff and very nice people working the bar.

The seafood come from the Tribe's own seafood company so it's as fresh as fresh can be! Plus generous portions and friendly service allmake for an exceptional dining experience. Try a half pound of shrimp in Thai peanut sauce.

5 of us sat at the bar seating and the service was super. We shared clams, small oysters, clam chowder, crab cocktails and steamed veggies. All very fresh, fast and delicious.

What an environment. A small bar with the best seafood. Large portions. Friendly people/staff. The crab cocktail is to die for.

We have now eaten at Squaxin Seafood Bar 3 times, each time taking different friends. All leave with glowing reviews, anticipating return visits. The steamed clams were marvelous, crab bisque absolutely the best I've had and the Thai peanut sauce sauté is to die for. Preparation is fun to watch, preparers are warm and friendly, and portions generous with reasonable... More

very casual, they really mean belly up to the bar. All of our seafood was fresh and reasonably priced, oysters shucked to order. Staff was friendly although very busy.

Several friends recommended this place to us but we hesitated to go because we don't like smoky casinos. Yes, we left smelling like an ash tray, but it was worth it! This is the best and the MOST seafood I have ever been served at a restaurant. We had an absolute PILE of crabmeat for an appetizer, followed by a... More

If you want excellent quality, fresh seafood then you have to visit the Squaxin Island Seafood Bar. This gem of an eatery is located inside the Little Creek Casino near Shelton. The seafood is fresh and plentiful. You must try the crab cocktail, which literally fills up almost half a dinner plate! And the house-made cocktail sauce is sooooo good.... More
