We tried to eat here last year with no reservation, but got turned away, so we were really looking forward to dinner this year. We made a reservation well in advance to make sure there would be no problems. Dinner started off with an excellent basket of bread, with a triangle of butter on a dish in oil with herbs... More

We visited the steelhead diner (really not like what we'd call a diner in NY - it's a restaurant) after a tour of Pike Place Market. The service is so friendly and prompt, the view is lovely from seats near the windows and the food is fantastic. Great chowder, amazing mac and cheese.

First day in Seattle and had compiled a list of recommended seafood restaurants from online reviews. This one showed up on several lists and was easy to find; very near ground zero of the Pike Place Public Market. Our waiter was new but well trained. We had zero wait on a Saturday afternoon and found a prime table overlooking the... More

Hubby and I walked down from our 8th street hotel to Steelhead Diner for dinner on a September Saturday night. Called for a 6:30 reservation at 5:45 and were taken! Our seating was in their "back room" AKA probably where they have corporate large group dining but it was fine. Food -- large portions for sure. Our waiter guided us... More

We had a wonderful waiter named John. Great personality. My huband had sole and green beans. He loved it and I tasted it. Very good. My choice was an heirloom tomato beet salad with, elegant mozzarella, salad. The bread was fresh and really tasty with the buttery oil. We were glad we stumbled in this restaurant after walking all around... More

3 of us had a nice dinner at the Steelhead Diner. Nice location and decor. The Gumbo was different and excellent. 2 of us had the Halibut with an Olive crust. Personally, I thought the Olive crust was a bit overwhelming. The Halibut itself was fresh and tasty. If I were to go back I would order the Halibut without... More

We stopped by after touring Pike Market. Our senses ready for some raw oysters & the gumbo our tour guide had suggested. We found they only serve oysters at their other restaurant with a different name. Our waitress told us the oysters weren't in season which was not true. Would have been better to tell us about the other restaurant.... More

Good location near Pikes Place Market but pretty average service. They include the tip in the bill so might contribute to the less than attentive server. Overall the food was good with a good selection.
