One couple for dinner. Reservation (highly recommended) honoured promptly, to good seating. Our server was personable and knowledgeable, and provided a number of excellent recommendations. Appetizers were an oyster selection and the white chowder, both excellent. Mains were the planked king salmon, perfectly cooked, and nearly buttery in texture. All in, a great meal, and highly recommended.

beautiful location on a pier, good selection of oysters, shared 2 dozen raw, order of oysters rockafeller and the crab dip. Only disappointment was the crab dip. oyster accoutrements are included at no charage, the horseradish is legit spicy. Need some at home for prime rib.

This is a popular and large seafood restaurant frequented by tourists. While the food we had was very good, the service was slow. This seems to be the frequent result of popular tourist restaurants.

Went here expecting a good seafood and oyster bar, what we got was ok food and too many tourists. The staff was overwhelmed and our oysters had so many pieces of shell in them it was not enjoyable. Our dinners were good but very expensive, too expensive for the very plain presentation. I would say look for another place before... More

The food was good, but our waiter made the visit to this restaurant a very good experience. He was very knowledgeable about the menu and was very helpful in giving dinner suggestions. He went beyond just serving our food and gave great suggestions on what and when to see things in the area.

The Pacific Northwest is renowned for its abundance of fresh seafood. If you're feeling "shellfish" while you're in Seattle, Elliott's Oyster House is a must stop on your dining list. They have a great location between the Ferry stop and Pike Place with a killer view of the Puget Sound. If the weather is nice, outdoors is the way to... More

Second time in Seattle in past 2 years for some baseball, and have eaten twice at Elliott's. Chowder is absolutely phenomenal as are the oysters. Great service, good prices and a great view from the deck on a sunny day. A must if walking along waterfront looking for a place to eat.
