Since Ivor's now ownes Spud's you would think the food would continue to be as good as it was in the past. No so!

A slight case of bait and switch 6/14/2010

My wife and I went to Ivar's fior dinner and were delighted to see a sign on the check in desk saying that wine was half off on Monday and Tuesday. The wine menu also had that footnote on its wine by the glass list, and as it was Monday, we ordered 2 glasses of wine. The meal was delcious but the overall feeling of bliss was spoiled when the check arrived listing the wine at full price. We pointed tthis error out to the server who said that only bottled wine was half price. He then produced a printed paper lising only wine by the bottle. We pointed out to him that we had never seen that paper before and that he should look in the bound wine menu which was on every table and which we had ordered from. He looked and seemed surprised and said he would show it to the manager. After some discussion, they did refund half the cost of the wine, but they refused to admit to a mistake. I asked if all of the people I had seen drinking wine by the glass would be told about this error, they never made a comitment except that things would change tomorrow, Pros: Delicious food Cons: If you don't read your bill you could be over charged more

Spud Fish and Chips on Alki 8/20/2008

Taste you will never forget. 3/29/2007

Never visit the Lakewood WA location of Ivar's. They have been told to only issue a maxium amount of napkins. The workes takes breaks without washing their hands upon returning from outside. I start eating at this location and find it to be so different from the smaller locations. I wish it was someway I could talk to the owner of that location. They are making me where I don't enjoy going to Ivar's like I have enjoyed it in the past. more

Best chowder in Seattle 2/23/2007

I advise anyone who has guests to visit this location because a) it's the most authentic one in seattle b) the ivars at malls cannot compare for some reason c) if not this location find an ivars that stands as a restaurant on its own, not in a mall. Great fish and chips, great chowder, even better when you eat both at the same time. You can never go wrong with chowder bread bowls and you can avoid getting the prawns. Stick with fish and chips and chowder! Pros: Great fish and chips and chowder Cons: Is a little more pricey because it's on the waterfront more

Hidden Jewel 10/19/2006

Great Service, good value for a view and atmosphere like that. I try to go back there every time I visit seattle. more

Freshest seafood in the country! 5/21/2005

Ivar's Halibut and Chips is to die for -- fresh, hot and tasty. It is the definitive Seattle dish and experience. Ivar's is the first place I visit every time I'm back in Seattle! Pros: Fresh fish, Low prices, Seattle ambience more

Ivar's hidden cove - 12/15/2002

I started eating fish & chips at Ivar's during the 1940s - Ivar's radio chat said that no husband could have a second bowl of clam chowder without his wifes permission. As much as I have traveled, no place can replace Ivar's for me. It took my wife from Kansas City to find a rare delicious treasure at Ivors on Alaska Way. The "Smoked Salmon Chowder" can make my mouth water as I think of it - in Kansas City, MO. And the Hidden Cove - well it is between the walk up Fish & Chips bar and the sit down dining area. We fly out to Seattle this week, and plan on fish & chips, and smoked salmon chowder - wonderful holiday fare! Pros: A variety of tastes., Puget Sound smells., Sights/sounds. Cons: The diving sea gulls., Puget Sound Smells., Parking/Traffic. more

It's a classic 5/12/2002

This is the place for fish-n-chips when you've got friends in town and you're doing the tourist thing. I'm sure you can get better fish-n-chips, but this place has that local treasure appeal. more

Editorial

  • The Scene
    Tourists and seagulls entertain each other during happy hour, when drinks and full meals are $3. Many think of this Seattle institution as a fast-seafood stand. But beyond the sidewalk counter, bench seating stretches out across the pier for splendid views of the bay. Service is generally friendly and efficient.

    The Food
    Downtown workers seem to be leaving this bargain to the tourists, but they're missing out on some well-prepared food specials that beat the price of the fish-and-chips outside. Accompanied by a zesty chipotle tartar, the fish taco comes stuffed with lightly fried cod. Salmon seekers can savor a sizable fillet served with Caesar salad. And don't forget the acres of Manila clams, stacked high in a sweet Thai coconut broth. Wash it down with a local microbrew, wine or mixed drink.
