“Excellent fish and chips on Alki”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

I grew up in West Seattle and have often eaten at the "Spud," another fish and chips place on Alki Beach. We could not stop at the Spud because there was no parking...... the beach was overrun with sun seekers. So we at at Sun Fish which is just down the street. Great fish and chips. Maybe better than the Spud which can be variable as to quality. Quick service and very clean. Worth a try.

“Being cash”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013 via mobile

This is a cash only business, so be prepared. The food is amazing. The halibut kabob is worth it twice. Enjoy

“Excellent Fish & Chips!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

Michael & Peter have been doing business for at least 20 years in Seattle, they really know their stuff. They used to be near the West Seattle Bridge in a little hole in the wall. The crowds were out the door on a sunny day. They decided to move to Alkai and the rest is history. The prawns are great and it's a tossup as to whether the cod or halibut is next. My brother & I always are tortured as to going to sunfish or that other place. We love them both! View is unbelievable, right on the water.

“Best fish&chips in Seattle!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013 via mobile

Ive been eating here for many years. Nothing in the area can compare with thier halibut or cod. They fry it up after you order it and it's not greasy . If you like fish n chips like I do , you have to try this place. The halibut seems a lil pricey but is well worth it. The only downside is that they're closed on Monday's .

“Sunfish Special”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

With our allergies (dairy, wheat and soy) we order the Sunfish Special, which is a halibut kabob with two prawns, bell peppers and onions on a bed of fries. A bit pricey for $15.95 but order another fry or a salad and two can share. Cash only however and the greeks who own the joint can be funny to surly depending on the day. When the weather is nice sit outside if you can find a seat.
