It's the Wandering Yank here. Mrs. Yank and I found ourselves at Westfield Mall around lunchtime. We didn't want to spend a lot of time having a big lunch, and since we had recently had an excellent experience at Ivar's on the Seattle waterfront recently, this Ivar's appeared to be a good choice. We were very happy with everything. A... More

Remember places like Arthur Treacher's Fish & Chips? Well Ivar's is a modern day version with a bigger menu. Better than most seafood chains and as good a value.

We just had the fish and chips lunch which includes either red or white clam chowder and a drink, $16.76 with tax. The fish was cod and you get 4 pieces.

I had fried cod and french fries...the cod was fresh, but the overall taste of the fried batter and seasoning (or lack of) just didn't hit the mark...french fries were not very good...they were served hot...but not tasty.

not sure what there is say much about this typical, below average, expensive airport take-out option. I had the clam chowder bread bowl and its was nothing to write home about. very few clams had made their way into my bowl, basically gravy and bread (and of course msg). definitely not worth what they charged. and of course, the usual...

Had lunch here on the way out. Convenient location in the center food court. Fish and chips was very good but greasy. the Dungeness crab cocktail, not so much - too much filler, not enough crab.

I've eaten at various Ivars for 50 years. They are always good. I like the standard cod and chips, Halibut is also good. New England clam chowder is the best.
