Cons: Waited 20 minutes for a glass of WATER. Asked twice and was ignored. Food portions are much too large for one sitting, unless you plan to take half your dinner home. Way overpriced - we spent $155 for four people without drinks. When we were leaving people were being quoted one hour wait time while all inside tables were... More

Maybe I'm just spoiled growing up by the water. The food was ok, but a bit overpriced. I guess when it's parked up to the Seattle Great Wheel, you're paying for the view. Staff was friendly, but I'd probably try somewhere else next time I'm in town.

The views are great, and that is the best part of the experience. Food is ordinary and with so many great restaurants in Seattle don't waste your time or money.

Not only was this place on the waterfront, but it was easy to get too from Pike Street Market! The inside was very spacious and we were given a window seat which was nice to look out! Great conversation and great food was perfect! Definitely want to come back! I had the clam chowder, the crab cakes and lobster ravioli......... More

The location of this restaurant and views are stunning and I think the expectation of being on the beautiful waterfront in a city that is known for incredible food, sets expectations that this restaurant just did not hold up to. Fish and chips - you would think would be awesome - but Captain Highliner does a better job. Service transactional.... More

Wonderful atmosphere! Great tables and views! Really nice staff. So, over priced for such terrible food! We are in SEATTLE! Where the hell did they get their steamer clams? HORRIBLE! The calamari was rubbery, and the dipping sauce was a joke. The best part of the meal was the bread!

This was our first trip to Seattle. We thought some dinner by the waterfront would be a nice idea so our walk led us to The Fisherman's Restaurant. From the menu, we thought it was a bit pricey but we said we would treat ourselves as we were on vacation. The venue and the view are nice however we could... More

We went here to get our seafood fix because the Crab Pot had a 2 hour wait. We only waited here for about 20 minutes before being seated on a Saturday at noon. Our server was friendly and seemed to take my gluten free needs as a Celiac very seriously. I had the half portion of dungeness crab and it... More

There were quite a few people waiting to be seated so I thought it would be good. The place was 1/3 full and yet we waited 30 minutes to be seated. I normally would not mind if the food was good but it wasn't. The crab stuffed salmon was very dry and had little taste. I had to order some... More

The restaurant was quiet the evening we visited. We wanted to sit outside on their top deck over looking the bay. Appetizers were all that was available at this time. We enjoyed the Coconut Prawns and shrimp cocktail. The sky and sunset were amazing, a very peaceful atmosphere.
