We stopped at Etta's for dinner based upon online reviews. The food was good, we especially enjoyed the bread with butter and olive oil. Our main meal was tasty, but nothing extrordinary. It was also expensive, $118.00 for two with tip and no alcoholic drinks. It was obvious all the food was fresh, but my husband's crab cake portion was... More

I've eaten here several times, mainly visiting due to the crab cake recommendation - and it's outstanding. Will not disappoint - excellent. But during one of my last visits, I overheard a waiter describing the coconut cream pie. I enjoy coconut but am not a fanatic. However, the waiter's description made me give it a try. Oh my goodness, it... More

First time at Etta's Seafood and it was really good. Ordered the oysters and was not disappointed - fresh and delicious. Fish and chips was great too. Will return next I'm in Seattle.

The homemade pasta and crab was fabulous! This restaurant is right in Pike Place, and they have a place to park your stroller. Also the fish and chips were great. The waitress was knowledgeable and helpful. I would def. go back

We made reservations and I recommend that! One couple ordered the Salmon and another ordered the Crab Cakes!! So yummy! The Crab Cakes are tiny; so order 2 of them (higher price on menu). The vegetable serving is small too but filling. The Salmon is heavenly and delicious. We all split two desserts: Coconut Cream Pie and a sweet cherry... More

Oysters on the half shell (we asked for a mixture of types) were great. My friend loved the salmon that the restaurant is know for. I had the fish and chips which was good and very filling. The service was just ok and the atmosphere was also just ok. I would eat here again.

Etta's was recommended on a travel show we watched. It is next to the Pike's Market area in Seattle. The seafood was excellent and we will definitely be back. It is a little pricey.

Our friends from Indiana were sweltering. So we went looking for air conditioning. Never had been to ETTA'S. Oh, we were so pleased. The chowder, farm grown vegetables cooked to fabulous perfection, flaky fish and chips, freshly prepared salads. Great atmosphere, exquisite blend of flavors, wonderful service and so glad we came.

My husband & I went for the crabby hour. We shared the full dungeness crab. We saved $10 by going to happy hour. The crab was very good.

Thank Sue S
