The food selection was fairly significant. The seafood was decent, but most of the selections are fried. The view of the harbor was very nice. Waiter was very prompt and provided good suggestions on dishes to try. The peanut butter pie for dessert is unforgettable.

Very nice sit-down on the busy and crowded waterfront. Beautiful harbor setting and nice interior atmosphere. Food is very good with a great seafood selection. Service was good and price was fair.

Great seafood and view on the wharf. Our choice restaurant for dinner when visiting the wharf or Pikes Market. Food is always great and always an enjoyable visit.

We ate here twice - once for dinner and once for lunch. Initially I was hesitant, due to some of the reviews and it honestly looked like a tourist trap, but our family members who live in Washington said "You gotta go to Ivar's!" because it's a longtime local favorite, so we did. Soooo glad we gave it a chance!... More

Acres of Clams is great. It's close to the Seattle wheel and it's a busy restaurant but you can eat in the bar if you don't want to wait for a table. They have big windows and nice views of the lake. I was entertained by the antics of the seagulls but I'm here to talk about the food so... More

After spending an afternoon on Bainbridge Island this was a perfect spot for our dinner. We both enjoyed the fish and chips and the atmosphere was great. Great value

I ate here with a group of friends on 5 July and was impressed with the variety of fresh food and professional service. I am thankful for the waitstaff's patience as our group gleefully threw french fries at the seagulls out the window!

Our starters were very good - the red chowder and the caesar salad. Unfortunately that was where the meal's excitement ended. We got fish and chips plus prawns and chips and were both left a bit disappointed for a sea front restaurant in the Pacific Northwest. Fish portions were small and unimpressive and the chips were cool and soggy. I... More

My daughters and I ate at Ivar's at lunch on a Thurs. There was no wait. Perfect spot for getting into the mood of Seattle. The NW Clam Chowder was amazing; far better than the regular clam chowder. I had the special of halibut and it was delicious. We each enjoyed our meal and would recommend it to anyone visiting... More
