The take-out bar is attached to the outside of Ivar's salmon house on Lake Union. The menu consists of various deep-fried seafood options, clam chowder, and, my favorite, alder-smoked salmon dinner. The alder-smoked salmon dinner is a terrific value. For $7, you get a generous piece of alder-smoked salmon, wild rice, cornbread, and coleslaw. Outdoor tables are available on the deck in back (be aware, there are a few umbrellas, but most seating is in the sun), where you can share your meal with the resident ducks while watching boats on the lake. On drizzly days, you may opt for the indoor seating, which is basically a cafeteria-type atmosphere.
