I normally go for Ivar's Acre of Clams when I am anywhere close to Seattle. In this case, I was killing an hour since my flight was delayed and I found Ivar's in the SeaTac main terminal and while I love the clams, scallops, and shrimp, fried with chips, I was up for something a little less "heavy" to sit...

The atmosphere was lovely. Very nice views and a large fireplace inside. The staff was very friendly and attentive. I don't eat seafood. The chicken I had was delicious! My friends loved their seafood meals! Decent prices.

Let's face it, the bar for airport food is pretty low. The big chains are usually disappointing, and the one-of-a-kind are struggling.

Ivar's pulls this off... More

I had the fish and chips with clam chowder at the Ivar's in the airport. The portions are plentiful and the food was served piping hot, but the taste was a bit bland and one-dimensional for me. The fish and chips could use more seasoning and the chowder was too heavy for me. I struggled to actually taste clams in... More

great food but a little disorganized. We did not choose the seated area so we thought the wait was too long

Ivar's at airport was good (not as good at the full restaurant in Everett, though). Several platters and sandwiches. Had to go low-fat on the salmon BLT sandwich, but the staff accommodated this. Platter was really good. Nice full portions on all - fish, fries, cole slaw = excellent! Easy to take and go - took on our flight; it... More

Had a Caesar salad with crab. It was very good salad dressing and the crab was sweet and buttery. Excellent for fast food.

Don't miss this one. Wonderful seafood, location and view. This sits right on the pier. Enjoy lunch while looking onto the sound.

This is a must. Please go and try the clam chowder. it is world famous for a reason. You don't need to order anything else. Just enjoy the clam chowder on a cold drizzly night and then you will understand
