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

The whole market is a really neat experience, and this restaurant was well worth the visit. Very nice ambiance, menu selections, and atmosphere. Requested a table with a view of the harbor and was seated immediately. Because we are on a low carb diet, we both ordered the Seafood Sautee. The portion was huge, the entire meal was fantastic.

We enjoyed two meals here while in Seattle. I personally loved their fish and chips! We sat upstairs with a great view of the water. We especially liked our service. Our server, Danny, was attentive, friendly and personable. He represents the business well. It's a nice place to stop for a meal while visiting the Pike Place Market. You can... More

We went to this restaurant twice - and enjoyed the good quality food on both occasions. The fish and chips on both occasions were excellent, as was the bread bowl of chowder. The staff were courteous and quick and the views of the bay superb.

In a really old historical building with views over the bay this restaurant is quite quaint. I had the Tastes of the North West seafood platter and my husband ordered a New York Striploin steak. We were both happy though the steak was a bit overcooked ( my husband ordered it medium ). Lots of beers available and my hard... More

Given its "Sleepless in Seattle" fame we stopped here for lunch on our recent visit to Seattle. Service was outstanding; quality was more than fair, although I doubt the clam chowder was home made (maybe from a can?). Price was as reasonable as it can be in a tourist trap like Pike Market. Had a table window upstairs and enjoyed... More

This place was like an Oasis in the crazy atmosphere at Pikes Place in Seattle. The Food and Service was outstanding. (Had a couple of good IPAs as well). The whole Family was treated well and it made the day that much better to be able to sit, eat and enjoy the Harbor View. Thanks to our Wait Staff who... More

This is a very good restaurant, the food is excellent! Definitely you should try the clam chowder, perhaps the best I've ever had. I also had the sea food broth, also a very good choice. My wife had a past which was also great. If you go to Pike Place Market, definitely try this place out. Probably make a reservation... More

This place was featured in the film 'Sleepless in Seattle'. So for us it is a must go to place while in Seattle. We have always received a seat by the windows, overlooking the bay. The food is excellent but is overpriced. There are many choices in this area and next time we will check out other locations due to... More

The Views were spectacular, our service was excellent. Good food. vA place you "gotta" see in Seattle right in Pikes Market right on the sound.
