The crab cocktail, man, is a treat. The fish & chips had great flavor, the fish moist and perfectly prepared and cooked. Ivar's is on my top 5 list of favorite fish & chip places in Seattle.

I really enjoyed going to Ivar's. My family and I stopped there for lunch after disembarking from the ferry. The food is great, the service is friendly, and they have a running activity of feeding the local seagulls leftover fries, something I thought was fun...More
