We sat on the second floor with a view of the harbour and a very large naval ship, which made for a very quiet lunch for us even in a busy restaurant. The food was quite good. I had the blackened chicken club with fries and a coleslaw. The sandwich was terrific, very flavorful and a large portion. The fries... More

We really enjoyed our first visit to Pike Place Market in Seattle. A must do! Hard to judge a restaurant off only one expedience but our meal wasn't fantastic. We had the seafood soup and ocean salad. The seafood soup was a little bland, seemed like a very basic chicken broth base and with all that great seafood in it... More

Great food and amazing staff! We weren't expecting much from this oddly set up place in the market but we got a great surprise. The staff was excellent, the beer was amazing and the food was great! Everyone of our party of six had something different for lunch and all of it was fantastic. So look past the decor and... More

This historic restaurant conveys all the hustle and bustle of Pike Place Market whilst serving tasty food (not just seafood) overlooking the harbour below. As used by Tom Hanks in 'Sleepless in Seattle'!

Nice place in the Market. We spent 45 minutes sitting around without water, without food, then without the check, and without a beer. The server's family was seated next to us and came in 10 minutes after we sat down. They had their appetizers before we even had our first drink. She spent to entire time talking to them and... More

My family and I chose to eat here for breakfast on our first day in Seattle. The location is perfect for experiencing the market, and virtually the entire restaurant offers stunning views of the waterfront (from where we were seated we could see the Ferris wheel and several ferries and boats coming and going. It was a great way to... More

We stopped for a late lunch/early dinner - four adults and a toddler. We sat upstairs next to a window overlooking the Sound. We all shared the Salmon Pita sandwich, Salmon Burger, chowder, an crab cakes. The food, service, ambience and view were all very good! Will definitely return to this place someday soon!

Our family of 4 visited Seattle in June and this was the first restaurant we stopped at. It has very nice views of the harbor and delicious fish. My husband and I had the halibut and our children had salmon. The fish was very fresh and well-prepared. Prices are fair considering the location. we also liked the clam chowder. A... More
