Best Clam Chowder!

I was skeptical the first time I went, since this is right in the middle of the tourist area and Pike Place Market. It was a pleasant surprise to get great food, especially their tasty clam chowder with corn, and friendly service. It was not over priced either and I would recommend it when you're... read more

This upscale "throwback" diner was a great choice for a small celebration dinner. We has the clams and the pork belly appetizers and they were both great. On an earlier visit we had the tater tots and they were a great spin on a classic comfort food. For dinner, I had the cod and my wife had the king salmon.... More

Holy cow this was good. High-end dining in a fun, casual atmosphere. Do yourself a HUGE favor and make sure to order the crab and shrimp tater tots. You will thank me!

I visited this place on a business trip and have to say that I was not amused by the food, plus the fact that they could only grill Salmon, I asked about a different fish like Cod, and the waitress said unfortunately not. I ended eating the fish and chips, which was good and big portion. However, this tells me... More

This place is very much a diner -- vinyl booths, menus printed on paper place mats, an unremarkable wine list, and the hubbub of wait staff rushing in and out of the kitchen. High ceilings and hard surfaces help make the place loud and raucous, but it's a fun atmosphere if you're prepared for it. And the food is the... More

Of the many ways you can fry potatoes, to me tater tots reign supreme. I also love both shrimp and crab. Imagine my delight to see on the menu tater tots made of shrimp and crab. As anticipated the appetizer was pure savory bliss. I also recommend the clam chowder. Though the chicken & andouille sausage gumbo doesn't quite compare... More

Not sure why this is not ranked much higher. Literally the best meal we had on a three week trip to Seattle, Vancouver and Alaska sea and land cruise. The haddock was extremely fresh and gigantic portion. The service was knowledgable and helpful. He went the extra mile to personalize our meal. Ambiance is a bit informal and slightly touristy,...

We really enjoyed everything we had. The crab cake appetizer was excellent. Really enjoyed the fish and chips and mac and cheese as well.

I had a steak (what's wrong with me, meat in fish paradise!) It was done perfectly as was the salad and veggies.

Great location just off of Pike Place Market. Cute, trendy atmosphere. I have food allergies which makes eating out while traveling slightly more challenging but I was told (by both people and reviews online) that this place is known for being able to cater to my needs. Once we were seated, I spoke with our server regarding my dietary needs... More
