    Shucker's: Great Seafood in between your business meetings!

    by ATXtraveler Written Jun 12, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    While looking for a quick lunch spot in between business meetings on my trip to Seattle, I spotted Shuckers...which had been recommended to me before. I decided to stop in and give it a shot, and man were my friends right!

    This was a great lunch, the food was very fresh and delicious, and the service was top notch!

    Don't be scared that this is located underneath the Four Seasons hotel... the prices were just fine.

    Favorite Dish: I had the crab salad, and it was absolutely delicious!!

    Address: 411 University Street

    Directions: 4th and University, below the Four Seasons, and across from the W Seattle

    OceanAire Restaurant: Even in the Sound, you can have OceanAire!

    by ATXtraveler Updated Apr 4, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This evening I headed across the street from the hotel that I was staying at to enjoy a wonderful meal at OceanAire. In Seattle, you are guarenteed to have some great fish, however I definitely enjoyed the downtown location of this restaurant as well as the food that was served.

    We split a fried fish appetizer which had a wonderful mustard flavored sauce, then I had a Ahi Tuna plate that was sushi grade and deliciously pan seared. We then shared two sides, hashed browns and creamed corn, both delicious. For dinner we had a Baked Alaska dish which finished the evening beautifully!

    Marco's Supper Club: Great little restaurant in Belltown

    by leeludalas Written Jan 23, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Marco's is a great little restaurant. The staff are extremely friendly. When I called to book a table from LA, the person on the phone wanted to know about my visit, offer suggestions for sight-seeing... etc. We visited Marco's and had a great experience. The restaurant is small, it is in a happening location in Belltown. The food was great! Fresh seafood, a good selection of dishes. Rated one of the best restaurants in Belltown.

    Favorite Dish: Cuban grilled halibut with coconut rice

    Address: 2510 1st AVE

    Directions: In Belltown on 1st Ave

    Crab Pot Seattle: Fun & dining

    by kbl Updated Aug 12, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Very funny to have the food place ON the table. When arriving and choosing The Sea Feastfor Two, you'll have your silverware removed, butcher paper laid before you and a bib tied around your neck.

    The restaurant is next to the water,so it gives you a great view.

    Casual style: Don't expect this restaurant in the Michelin Guides :-) We went here with some friends and had a great evening.

    Favorite Dish: The Sea Feast for Two

    Address: Pier 57, 1301 Alaskan Way

    Directions: a minute walk from Pikes Market

    The sea feast has arrived!

    Come and enjoy your fish!

    Steamers Seafood Cafe: Good clamchowder, good food...

    by joits Updated Nov 25, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    My buddy works here, and he invited us down for dinner. You definitely have to have the clamchowder which is pretty damn good. Its not the best I've tasted (that honor belongs to a restaurant in San Francisco down by the water). Its a good place to watch a game or just hang out with your friends. Its got a great atmosphere, very casual and relaxed. Service is great too. And location wise, it's right by the water... great for romantic walks with that special someone.

    Favorite Dish: The Clamchowder of course.

    Address: Pier 56

    Pike Place Chowder: Chowder Heaven

    by goodfish Updated Mar 26, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Chowder lovers, this is where you go for a hot bowl of bliss. Pike Place Chowder offers up 3 sizes of 4 traditional varieties: New England clam, smoked salmon, Southwest chicken and corn and Manhattan-style. For more adventurous types there's seafood bisque, seared scallop, vegan and a daily specialty. Can't make up your mind? You can get a 4-cup sampler for about $11. You can even have your soup in a bread bowl - although they all come with a chunk of sourdough. There are salads and sandwiches too but who needs 'em - come for the chowder. Order at the counter, grab your tray and head to any available table indoors or out. This is a hot spot with the Pike Place crowd as it's good stuff you won't shell out a lot of clams for (by Seattle prices) so I might recommend heading here on the off-hours. Open 11:00 - 5:00

    Favorite Dish: I had New England Clam and the husband had Southwest. Both yummy. Prices are $6 cup, $7 medium and $11 a bowl. A medium is plenty unless you're a big feller.

    Address: 1530 Post Alley, Pike Place Market

    Directions: See website for map

    Happy chowder fan Lunch al fresco (if you can find a seat)

    The Kingfish Cafe: The Kingfish Cafe

    by Erin74 Updated Nov 23, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Kingfish Cafe is located in the Capitol Hill section of Seattle and is very popular with urban hipsters and gourmets alike. The menu here is definitely oriented toward Southern and soul food. You'll find some great catfish at Kingfish Cafe! There can be a long wait for dinner, so be sure to call for a reservation. The interior of the restaurant is very welcoming and cozy. If you only go to one or two restaurants while in Seattle, I highly recommend that The Kingfish Cafe be one of them!

    Favorite Dish: Save room for dessert! Their desserts are enormous and absolutely delicious.

    Seafood Restaurants: Pike Place Chowder

    by Ewingjr98 Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We had a quick lunch at the little Pike Place Chowder shop on Post Alley near Pike Place Market. I had the Dungeness Crab Roll and Laura tried their clam chowder in a bread bowl. The sandwich was pretty good, but small and expensive at around $10. The chowder was very tasty and the sourdough bowl good ... and priced around $8.

    This tiny restaurant only has seating for about 20 and it is constantly busy, especially on a dreary, rainy afternoon. Their hours are 11am to 5pm.

    Pike Place Chowder has won numerous awards nationwide for its chowder.

    Address: 1530 Post Alley Seattle, WA

    Directions: 1st and Pike next to Pike Place Market

    Fisherman's Restaurant and Bar: Two Floors of Views of Puget Sound on the Water

    by glabah Written Apr 7, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Pier 57 is one of the old waterfront piers that has been converted to tourist use. It now contains a carousel, stores, a wooden boat building demonostration area, and several restaurants.

    At the farthest end away from Alaskan Way, you will find the entrance to Fisherman's Restaurant and Bar.

    There are two levels, both with decks outdoors that have a view of downtown Seattle and Elliott Bay. The interior seating also has reasonably good views of the waterfront.

    Prices for dinner tend to be in the $20 to $30 range, but you will find a few things in the $37 range for real specialized dishes.

    This is a fairly nice restaurant, but it is also in a tourist area. You will see people wear just about anything here, but you will fit in better if you are dressed in the semi-formal range.

    Favorite Dish: The assorted pastas with seafood are a reasonably good value. They will come with a tossed salad or bowl of chowder, plus sourdough bread.

    Take a look through the menu on the web site! You're sure to find something you want to have before you even get here.

    Address: End of Pier 57, Alaskan Way

    Directions: You will find several parking areas along the "land" side of Alaskan Way, under Alaskan Way Viaduct. Pier 57 is located just north of University Street. Pike Street Market is one and a half blocks north.

    Coastal Kitchen: A new menu and theme each time! No kidding!

    by wanderlust23 Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This restaurant is incredibly unique in that in addition to it's set menu, it offers a new cuisine every few months. In the times I have dined there they have done Spanish, Moroccan, and Mexican. Currently their new theme is Argentinian and my friend said it was excellent! I can't wait to try this cuisine.

    Not only does the menu change to offer regional delicacies from the themed country, but the decor of the restaurant changes to reflect this. For example, for the Spain theme the restaurant was decked out in bright colors, shawls, etc to evoke the feeling of being in Majorca. Truly a fun experience!!

    Favorite Dish: My favorite dish is very unique, a great blend of flavors: SAINT ANDRE SCALLOPS
    "Succulent grilled sea scallops cozied between a pair of delicate handmade crepes overflowing with green apples and butternut squash blanketed in a creamy chestnut veloute. "

    I can't wait to try this new dish from their Argentinian menu: Joyas de la Playa
    "Shrimp, scallops, mussels, clams and seasonal fin fish swim in aromatic peach scented stew with a cornucopia of root vegetables. "

    Address: 429 15th Avenue E, Seattle

    Directions: On 15th Ave E on the top of Capital Hill.

    The Crab Pot: All about Seafoods

    by Minnieg Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Crab Pot" located both in Seattle downtown and in Bellevue. So what is Crab Pot??... it is a "hot" restuarant in the Pacific Northwest whose waterfront dining room features a nautical decor; a huge aqaurium filled with live dungeness crabs; and mountains of iced, fresh shellfish from local waters. The house specialty is the so called " Sea Feast" which comes in four variations and expect to have your silverware removed, butcher paper laid before you and a bib tied around your neck! We had a great time!

    Favorite Dish: My favorite is the Sea feast and it was Deli!

    Athenian Inn: Nothing Greek about it - just great seafood!

    by aukahkay Written Oct 25, 2006

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Athenian Inn is a quitessential institution in Pike Place Market. Overlooking the Seattle harbour, this popular restaurant serves delicious seafood and other American dishes to tourists and locals alike. Long queues can be expected during lunch time. If you are lucky, you can get a seat by the window overlooking the harbour, but otherwise, be content to sit at the bar counter.

    Favorite Dish: I had a great serving of Spanish style seafood - clams and sausages served in a tangy spicy sauce with rice. The fish and chips are also good - succulent and not too oily.

    Address: 1517 Pike Place

    Directions: At Pike Place Market

    I LOVE this place. The seafood is so fresh, clean tasting, and delicious, that I kept going back even though I was on vacation. Also, the setting is wonderfully casual, friendly and interesting (the view of Seattle is fabulous). My dog was welcome at the outside picnic tables and we had nice walks along the shore after eating.

    Favorite Dish: My favorites (I HIGHLY recommend all) were scallops, oysters, prawns, and cod. Oh, and the chowder, I love that chowder.

    by poohdetective Updated Mar 23, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    My grandma Vanada first took me here when I was 5, 47 years later I'm still a happy camper. I've traveled all over the US and Canada. As well as Alaska,and Hawaii. Haven't found anyplace that can
    touch them. Including Ivar's .( He was a personal friend of my Fathers). So do yourself a favor and
    try the best in town. I know I could be biased ,after all I was born in Ballard.

    Favorite Dish: Fish and chips. Lightest batter in town. Chips are homemade and less greasy than Dicks.

    Address: Across from the locks.

    Directions: Across from the locks,right side on the way to shilshoal marina and golden gardens.
