Good seafood and great views

Fun casual place in Pike Place Market...bigger than it looks. We got a great table overlooking the Wheel and the Sound watching the ferries come and go. Ordered calamari to start (very good) then crab cakes and salad and salmon and chips. The cakes were full of crab and not much filler. All was... read more

Landed to Seattle and had some firsttimers with me, we went for a stroll around pike place to look for a little something to eat and landed to Athenian Inn by chance. Myself and my guest were absolutely loving the food, signature seafood bowl and salmon lasagne were both absolutely fantastic. Also, as starters, we had oysters, which were great,... More

This looked like a pretty busy restaurant located in the market but we made our way back to the bar and discored a great happy hour overlooking the sound! We tried tacos, shrimp and fresh oysters. They were all very fresh, tasted great with quick service. Our bartender Seth was very friendly and knowledgeable and we will definitely return on... More

I was actually looking for another recommended eatery, but couldn't find it and hunger was creeping in. Time was getting late and I dropped into this place and picked fish and chips which was suggested by the waiter. I chose a seat overlooking the harbour and was very pleased with the food and service at a very reasonable price. Not... More

We stopped here for lunch on our first day in Seattle. It's a lot bigger than we thought looking at it from the outside, market facing. We were seated in a booth overlooking the waterfront and near one of the bars. It was game day, not too busy but lively with the Seahawks fans watching the game, which made our... More

At lunch time this place was busy..The location is very touristy obviously and the food matches! Crab and Shrimp Cakes were sad...falling apart and barely kept together with a massive amount of breadcrumbs on the outside..flavor was acceptable not amazing..Spicy cream prawns are also a few shrimps swimming in cream with some heat...Not sure what else to say.... Hope they... More

Great position, middle of Pikes Place Market in downtown Seattle overlooking the harbour. Must go to authentic restaurant and bar over 2 levels, been there since the market opened. Seafood a clear specialty, great seafood broth, seafood lasagne, cold beer. Staff really friendly without being in your face, on top of their game. Perfect in my view for a real... More

Stopped in on a Seahawks' Sunday with my niece & co worker when they were in town from Tampa on a training workshop. While touring the Market I was so glad I could take them to an authentic Seattle eatery. Sat upstairs in a booth with a picturesque view of Elliot Bay; the view alone is worth bringing an out...

Really great views from the window tables of the entire bay and ferry boats, great fast and friendly service, but the food was sort of ordinary.... My Shrimp Louis salad looked like it had been prepared three hours earlier. The lemons and eggs were definitely dried out on the edges. The cooks downstairs were shouting the entire time we were...

My wife and I flew into Seattle early in the morning and this was our first stop. We were seated in a small booth near the back bar. The view of the harbor and sound is beautiful. We ordered brewed black coffee, salmon and eggs (came with hash browns and toast), Chefs frittata, and blueberry hotcakes [you know, to share... More
