Popular, simple formula for fish and chips. Good, thick clam chowder too for an all-American version. Waterfront setting.

After some outdoor activities Ivar's hit the spot. The clam chowder (original recipe) is amazing. We ordered the "tanker" and polished everything off. The salmon & chips was great as well. Consistent quality expected from Ivar's. The location on Lake Washington at Coulon Park is...More
