Fish and chips were unremarkable and the fries were particularly bland and lifeless. The fish had a lot of blackish grey meat, not a little, but a lot. The walk up counter is managed by people who don't seem to like, or know how, to talk. There are heaters over tables, but it is covered, but open seating. There are... More

We ordered outside and ate in an enclosed area. Beer and wine served were to be consumed within the dining area. Kind of a quirky, nothing fancy, with a good view, right on the water. Prices were far better than most of the other restaurants along the same city block. My wife planned on eating her way through the Seattle... More

My son and I tried their smoked Cod & Chips and it was superb - tender & tasty; wish we had stopped here the day before when we tried a nearby restaurant and were disappointed! But the Salmon Cooker offers a casual setting at the front of the pier and fresh smoked fish. My wife had the Crispy Fish Tacos... More

Stopped in for a quick bite only to be disappointed by the meal, especially at the price charged. We had the smoked fish meals but the fish was too dry. The fries were cold and the coleslaw was bland. The waiter, to his credit did replace the fish. I would recommend trying something else on the menu.

The sandwich was big and really good. The fries were also good and everything filled me up. I sat outside and quickly received my order. I enjoyed it very much and it filled me up!!

Hardly restaurant standard. Very ordinary food but fairly cheap prices. You have to serve yourself and everything is on paper and plastic.

Quick service and good basic sea food. Good value for money. Nice views of the water front. Pop in and try the cod and chips or clamp chowder.

This is a self service restaurant down by the water in a prime tourist spot with outdoor dining. The crab cakes I ordered were small and the size of a quarter. We're New Englanders and well used to quality fresh seafood eaten weekly. Spouse's halibut meal was okay.Food here was somewhat of a disappointment. Not only were the portions small... More

Two days, two different fish and chips and we got the smallest pieces of fish at Ivars that were almost fish sticks. These were big fried perfect. Well done someone still knows how to do it right.

Went in the evening when the menu was limited. Had fish and chips. Halibut which was nice (3 pieces), fresh and meaty. Decent chips, not an over the top size helping. Beer available on tap. But nearly $30 for this was a high price considering restaurant prices, no adds on and actually a small serving size. That is the downside... More
