Yes, a lot of the menu is fried, but MAN ALIVE! that is one mean bowl of chowder! I never liked chowder until I tried their's and now nothing compares. Considering how much it rains here, it is nice to get a bowl of chowder and some fries in a mainly-locals restuarant in a touristy area. It always makes me happy, full, and leaves me with a couple of bucks in my pocket.
Besides, it is great for cheap eats with freinds.
Pros: yummy!, atm down the hall, easy on the wallet
Cons: Pike Place Market, Market Parking
