An Old Favorite, Still A Hit For Visitors

Back when I was an Army officer stationed at Fort Lewis (1980-83), my buddy and I used to make the monthly trek to Seattle on weekends, and regularly ate at the Athenian Inn. Food was pretty good, and the views were superb. (Plus lots of authentic old Seattle atmosphere!) Although I settled in the... read more

The location in the Pike Market is great - it's really an exciting place to visit. Ask for a window table to see the great views. The service was good but the food was just ordinary. Nothing really wrong with the food, it was all good but it's just not very exciting. The place is 'old charming' and really needs... More

Had to wait a while, but it was worth waiting for. Their oysters were so fresh that had no fishy smell. Greek salad was another great dish. Great service.

We stopped in during our recent trip to Seattle. This place had great beers on draft and wonderful appetizers. The bar was lively and the atmosphere was fun. Great place!

We enjoyed breakfast at a cozy table overlooking Elliott Bay. Our server was wonderfully attentive (kept the coffee coming) and the breakfast fare was made to order.

We stopped here for lunch after shopping in the Public Market. We passed a few places that didn't have comfortable seating so we stopped here. We had a table for two along the window with view of the waterfront. The menu is varied, but a little pricey for a simple resturant. We had the fishwich - just ok, kind of... More

We were in Seattle for a few days prior to a cruise and while checking out Pike Market Place we found this restaurant and decided to have dinner there. I was dying for clam chowder and was delighted to see it on the menu. My wife and I both had the chowder and then Alaskan Crab Legs. What a meal.... More

The food was just ok and it was pricey, but the views and atmosphere were worth it. Make sure to check out the daily specials.

During dinner we lost our waiter for 10 minutes. Food was subpar compared to other places in Seattle. The view was good but did not make up for meal. I bet sleepless in Seattle was waiting for his waiter.
