Took an recommendation and a trip advisor search but we jumped in on Thursday night at 7 ish. We did not have a reservation and was seated immediately. Nice vibe, clean and very good atmosphere. We settled in and got our drinks. Our waitress was knowledgeable and funny. We ordered the not to miss Dungeness crab with shrimp tater tots... More

This was recommended to us from the Savor Seattle Food Tour and we were happy to try it out for lunch. They have these amazing crab and shrimp tater tots to start and then a nice brunch selection. I tried their gumbo with a salad and it was amazing. My friend raved about the fish and chips. This will definitely... More

Our recent visit here was very pleasant from start to finish. All of the staff were very attentive and knowledgeable about their offerings, and the view of the market really contributed to the ambiance. Their menu, although somewhat small, was full of great flavors, including fresh seafood and salads.

We opted for the dine around Seattle prix fixe menu. Between the two of us we got the squash soup, polenta fries, mussels, chicken, espresso cheesecake, and chocolate pecan pie. Everything was excellent, and for $22 per three course menu, it is one of the best values I've seen in a restaurant in a very long time. The polenta fries... More

We stopped here for lunch after seeing Dungeness Crab tater tots on the menu! They are LARGE tots and enough to share for a group. They were delicious. I ordered the clams and the were fresh and tasty. My friend ordered the fish and chips and the portion was huge and really good. The atmosphere is light and airy with... More

Steel Head Diner has excellent food, more on the red meat side than many of the Pikes Place eateries that feature Seattle's abundant sea food. The menus is diverse but could use more sea food offerings. Our meal was excellent to say the least. We ate there on Black Friday and service was lacking. We sat for over .5 hour... More

Combining appetizer"Small Plates" for a variety of local northwest choices, or ordering entrees and wonderful dessert are both good choices at this Pikes Market favorite. The staff is professional and knowledgeable and food is excellent. I love the clams, but you will be pleasantly surprised by the variety as the menu ventures from typical Northwest food adding a bit of... More

On a business trip to Seattle had a chance to stop here for a quick dinner... Wonderful ambiance with a casual yet classy atmosphere. Tried the beet and watercrest salad which had wonderful crispy earthy flavors and freshness. Also had the cioppino which was superb with the fresh seafood flavors of the northeast! A must try if looking for something... More
