We once again had fantastic night at Steelhead Diner. It was very busy but the Steelhead team still managed to provide the personal touch that we have accustomed to. Starting with Chef Anthony and our server John, we had a fantastic evening of food, wine and conversation.

Went around 3pm on Sunday. They still had their brunch menu offered which had very little fish on it. I ordered the gumbo which had a lot of rice and not enough sausage and chicken. The entree was salmon which was plated with a weird combination of ingredients that didn't enhance the flavor of the salmon. The salmon serving was... More

The location is right up the street from Pikes Market, the food was good and the views out the window were a 4 out of 10. could see the people walking by but not much of a view of the sound. The staff was friendly but slow, had to always ask for something. I think it would be a better... More

My wife and I went there for a business dinner. The food and service were excellent. The dessert was awesome. It is quite noisy so it won't work for an intimate evening. Loved their root beer!

Afraid that SHD is headed down the hill. Have visited many times over the years and thought it was a safe bet for a weeknight. Was not. Food was not prepared thoughtfully, portions were enormous and things were just piled on the plate. A shame to ruin a bowl of mussels with all the extra spanish flare and the trout... More

We really like the Steelhead Diner. Our last visit was 1.5 years ago. Not much had changed, and it still delivered some delicious food in a comfortable and casual environment. We really enjoyed the pan roasted broccoli side and the Pike Place cioppino.

They add 20% gratuity on the top so I feel the waiters are not interested in providing any more service than necessary. Our food was good, but not amazing.

Good assortment of fresh seafood. My blackened cod was amazing. My husband's tuna was good. The chowder was gobbled down by our boys. Our service was excellent. Good wine and beer selection.
