Great place to grab a drink and get a good view

Tucked in the Market it offers a good menu and a great bar with a lot of local craft beers The calimarie had a hint of jalapeño which was great. The king salmon was average with mash potatoes and vegetables.

Was highly recommended by my tour guide and other locals, so decided to give it a try. Was not disappointed. I had their salmon with rice and vegetables dish, which was a good portion. Even their fish and chips looked good. Their own brewed beer was perfect with the food as well.

We came here at random, looking for a light dinner after the Pike Place Market vendors had closed. My wife wasn't super hungry, having splurged on fresh uni in the market a couple of times that day. We wanted to order from the happy hour menu, but the bar was full. Our very nice waitress solved our dilemma by seating... More

Fun to visit a restaurant and sit where Tom Hanks sat in the movie Sleepless in Seatle. Food is good and it has a cool vibe.

Nice place to start a day for badly jet lagged travelers, serves excellent coffee, variety of fried breakfast options and a beautiful view. I particularly enjoyed the salmon. Travelers from Switzerland should be advised against trying the hash browns here, they look like Rösti, but the appearances are misleading.

Located in the middle of Pike Place Market, this lunch counter restaurant is a great place for lunch. The servings are very large whether soup or sandwich. They also have many other foods to choose, but seafood is the way to go. Worth a short wait in line.

Wanted to find a place around Pike St to eat and we stumbled across this place in the market. I had the king salmon with rice. It was good. Interesting that they put salsa verde on it, but it was quite good. The place and service are really good. It is worth going for the view of the pier.

Restaurant is inside of the Pike Market. Pros: Fair views of the sound Cons: Food was just OK and high priced. Host was unhappy that we wanted a seat by the upstairs window - wanted to seat us where he had idle servers. Not the cleanest place I've eaten recently.

The views from this place were really great. The service was friendly, and fast. We had calamari (very nice), crab cakes (very good), and the Athenian Salad, which was fresh and delicious. A bit pricey, and there may be better deals out there, but my teenage daughter and I had a great meal after having wandered around Pike's market.
