We drove all the way from Bellevue to try their seafood but was truly disappointed with the quality of food, location and atmosphere is lovely, prices are overrated

Had the Alaskan Bairdi crab and local craft beer. Good meal in the lounge area with full menu. Nice night out but a bit pricey.

Whenever we come down to seattle for the boat show we always find ourselves having lunch and dinner at Chandler's. The service is always friendly and fast, and the food is always fabulous.

We had Thanksgiving Dinner here. The prixe fixed menu was reasonable given the quality and quantity of the meals. The salmon was the freshest I’ve ever had and it was seasoned and cooked perfectly. The prime rib was so tender and flavorful. The mashed potatoes were whipped to buttery perfection and the cranberry relish was yum! Service was impeccable.

This restaurant has fabulous food, the best staff I have ever encountered from host, hostess, checkroom, table bussing, bar staff and waiters. It also has a fantastic view of the harbor, the hills and just beauty. The appetizers and soups are excellent. I had dungeness crab cake as a main course that was both very large, perfectly prepared and delicious.... More

Had excellent meal at Chandler's Crabhouse on Lake Union in Seattle on Dec. 1, 2016. Ask for window seat. Some seating areas are quieter than others. Everything on the menu is good. My husband's favorite item is the whiskey crab bisque. I had soup, a small plate of fillet mignon & salad, and dessert. Good food, nice atmosphere, and great... More

Dropped in for a before the game for a quicky in the bar. Surroundings and food were fine but, happy hour menu was misleading. When bill came, 20% tip was added, even to the parking fee. Place was empty, and one could understand why! Why do former good places try to nick there customers a little extra?

We ate here last year and had an excellent meal with good service. The service this time was a bit hit & miss and while the food was OK it wasn't anything special. It was also very quiet for a Friday evening.
