After hiking at Discovery Park, our group enjoyed lunch at Chinook's. We were wondering for how many years we have been doing this - at least 20 years! We were split into 3 different groups, 6 at each table. I was sitting with the group in the upper level of the restaurant; it was very difficult to carry on a... More

If you're looking for a bustling, casual atmosphere, a varied menu including great seafood while viewing a fleet of fishing vessels, land at Chinook's. Under the flagship of Anthony's Homeport Restaurants, Chinook's replaced the more formal Wharf Restaurant of yesteryear and has been a hit ever since. So, we decided to lunch there and sat by a window peering at... More

The clam chowder is worth the trip out to Chinook's in Fisherman's Terminal! The view is great and the food is absolutely delicious! You definitely get the best value for your money. Fisherman's Terminal is also great to look at all the different boats all for free.

I had the opportunity to get dinner at Chinook's recently and enjoyed the whole experience. We sat in a booth overlooking the fishing piers with what must have been over 1,000 fishing boats at dock. So the view was entertaining. We happened to hit the place on a Monday night and enjoyed the all-you-can-eat fish and chips. The fish was... More

I've lived near and dined at Chinook's for over 18 years and I have to say the food is consistently good. They specialize in seafood but they do have a few non-seafood choices on their menu. I have so many "favorites" on their menu - the fresh grilled Idaho trout, the seafood fettucine, the crab and shrimp salad, the cioppino,... More

I've been eating here for many years and continue to be amazed at how consistent this place remains.Great food. Attentive service. Reasonably priced. You can even make a meal out of the happy hour menu. Every member of the staff is great and Patrick the bartender is a standout. It can be very noisy but what else is new in... More

Great rustic boat dock view of random fishing boats.. Food was great, awesome oysters, and samon tacos. Very pleasant staff, great soup. Server was quick to find answers that she did not know... Great lunch...

We were in Seattle to visit some family and the first night in town we went to Chinooks. The food overall was pretty good, I had the mahi mahi tacos and the bleu cheese/romaine salad. The dressing was overly mayonnaisey, not enough bleu cheese flavor. The fish in tacos was cooked perfectly but they could stand to put a bit... More

Prior to an evening at McCaw Hall for the Nutcracker, I was treated to an early dinner at Chinook's. It's been years since we had been here and I had completely forgotten what they were like. The restaurant was not overly business on Sunday around 4 and we were seated immediately, overlooking the bay. I thoroughly enjoyed the teriyaki King... More

This is the second time eating here(last yr. Jan) I had the shrimp-crab fettuccine and it was delicious. The food is always good and looking out at the boats is very relaxing but the biggest plus is the service. I've been a server for 35 years and find that customer service is getting harder and harder to find but not... More
