I was surprised to see some of the other reviews on this site. I live in Seattle and the Fishermans has always been one of my favorite restaurants. I just went down for dinner last night and enjoyed a beautiful sunset and view of Elliottt Bay. I arrived around 6pm and went upstairs to the bar to enjoy a drink with the friendly and attentive bartender Oggy while I waited for my friend to arrive. They have a nice beer selection, featuring a nice mix of local brews. When my friend arrived we were seated downstairs by a window with an incrediable view out onto the bay. We started with a Crab dip and a bucket of penn cove mussels. Both were fresh and delicious and recommended by our friendlly and attentive server Brandi. We both had the Fresh Alaskan Halibut for dinner, served with soup or salad of which we both had the New Enland clam chowder. The chowder was amazing, creamy thick, and loaded with clams. When we complimented Brandi on the chowder she told us that they have had the same guy making it for over twenty years. Well I think he has it down pat. The halibut was cooked to perfection, moist fresh, flakey. Our dinners were served with rice pilaf and fresh asparagus. We split dessert since neither of us really had room for it, but why let that stop us. We shared their bread pudding with the cranberry sauce. I was warn sweet and delicious. I had a great dinner as always and will be back soon. Thank you Oggy, Brandi.
