We started with Appetizers. They were great Fried oysters,oyster shooters,steamed clams.For dinner we all had their ,All you eat Fish and Chips. They were so good we all had extra's.They were made from Alaskan Cod and they were fried just right and they also light and flakey. I will go back as soon as I return to Seattle.

This restaurant has something for everyone. The seafood menu is extensive but there is plenty for those who don't like things that swin to eat. The view is beautiful and you feel right at home with the fishing fleet. The service was dynamite. We had three kids and the server just went with the flow and did a great job.

Wanting a late night small meal, we went here to what I recall as a good place some years ago. Well, mussels were so stale that we refused them after one sniff. Did not even need to taste and waiter agreed. Says "delivered every day", what about where they were before delivery? Shame. Skagit Pilsner definitely not to my taste.... More

I figured that since I was in Seattle, I should have some seafood. I am glad that my buddy picked Chinook's. I started off with a delicious cup of Clam Chowder. It was rich, creamy and full of flavor. I then had Fish and Chips. It was so crunchy and fresh. Their tempura style batter makes the difference. The views... More

This appetizer at Chinook's has been my obsession for the last several years. I look for any excuse to get there to order it. They have lots of other good food on the menu, but I love this so much, I have to have it!

Chinook's has been my favorite restaurant for a long time. A late Mother's Day celebration on May 25 was a huge disappointment. The fish (species unknown) substituted in the kitchen for the petrale sole was a far cry from any kind of sole I've ever had before. Determined to refrain from making a fuss, I ate what was served. I... More

I stopped by Chinook's recently for a weekend brunch and was not disappointed. Upon arriving seating was really quick with no wait at all. My server was efficient and always nearby should I have needed anything. The food did not take long at all to arrive so everything so far was going very well. The atmosphere - viewing the marina,...

I love Chinook's! I live on the east coast, but visit Seattle every other year or so. My trip is never complete without a meal at Chinook's. Although a little on the pricey side, this restaurant never fails to serve up a hearty, authentic Northwest meal. I always leave stuffed and completely satisfied. The ingredients are fresh and mostly local,... More

We have not eaten here in 20 years, and stopped by on a lark. Their fresh fish is prepared competently, if somewhat without imagination. If a fish served is not fresh, it is so noted on the menu. I heard several other customers wax lyrically about the fish tacos, which looked nice. We had the salmon, which at this time... More
