“Best Clam Chowder!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2014

Great clam chowder... I love stopping here for nice warm chowder.. the chowder bowl is great.. the seafood is always good here and great value.. the French fries are awesome as well. The restaurant is always busy and always clean.. we usually do take out more so but have eaten in. This is a must stop for me when I come to visit Seattle/Edmonds when I'm in town.. very easy to find.

“Good stuff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

Good fish, excellent chowder. Free drink refills.
Bit pricey. Next to the new Key Bank. Around the corner from Chopsticks if you like good chinese.

“Ivar's is a Seattle tradition.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

Ivar's is a Seattle tradition. I grew up on it. The quality is still good after all these years. A very nice break from burgers or tacos. I have had better fish and chips, but Ivar's is always reliable and fresh.

“Pretty decent”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012

I had the Copper River Salmon..I ordered it cooked medium..it was cooked well done..ok but not great. My companion had the fish and chips and he said they were very good. This is a classic place which is a neighborhood go to place. Good service. The value was reasonable and if you like fried foods this is probably a good choice.

“EXCELLENT Fresh Fish in a Fast Food Setting!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2012 via mobile

Do not go for FAST food; it is prepared after you order, except for the delicious soups! The setting and decor is definitely fast food; but do NOT be put off by this or the very reasonable prices. You can pay more elsewhere, but not exceed the quality that you wil receive here. This has become a favorite of mine when returning to catch the ferry in Edmonds bound for Kingston and the Olympic Peninsula. Located a couple miles SE of town on the west side of Hwy 104. ENJOY with money left over for dessert! ;-)
