Went here on the boat this week and pulled right up to the dock out front. Were there for a light snack. Ordered the calamari and a lobster roll. Both were amazing. Service was also spot on. Going back for sure to grab another lobster roll.

I have visited twice. First time, it was jammed, poor weather, so ate indoors. Second time, we arrived early and scored a great table on the patio. Both times we had friendly efficient service. The chowder, crab melt, lobster roll, and especially the Bloody Mary were all terrific.

My only comment would be that better signage is needed. The large rotating sign on the roof says "Pacific Seafood," and there is an old readerboard that says "Johnny's Seafood." Only when you're in the parking lot can you see the "Fish Peddler" sign above the entrance.

On a warm evening sitting on the patio at the Fish Peddler is so amazing! Not only do you find good food there, but you are looking at Mt Ranier in the distance with the moon slowly rising above it. In addition to this we had excellent service and felt warmly welcomed and waited on. I had the halibut which was flavorful and tender. Others had the salmon and were well pleased. And then to top it off we had peach raspberry crisp. A delightful evening at a place where I will for sure return!

The food was phenomenal! Great views over the city. It was pretty pricey but it was well worth it. We ate seafood it was so good and fresh!

We called ahead to see if they take reservations, and they do not, but told us to come on in as there is no wait. We arrived and were told that there is a 15 minute wait, so we order drinks, and we had to close out immediately. The location is great with a water view and nice outdoor seating. About 15 minutes into our wait a couple who just arrived was seated while we remain in seating area. About 30 minutes into our wait, a family arrives, and the hostess takes them outside to another table while we sit in waiting area. We kindly ask if we can be seated and they seat us.

We order drinks, meals, and chowder. The chowder comes out and is delicious. Waitress tells us twice that our food will be right out. After waiting well over an hour for our food in addition to half hour in waiting area, we decided to cut our losses and leave. I notified the bartender that we had waited long enough and we are leaving. I asked for my check of what we consumed, and he had the audacity to charge me for drinks and a cup of chowder, and and give some half hearted apology and hope it would be better next time. Well this behavior does not earn another try. Saige was our waitress, who did a great job on drinks and chowder, but be warned if you go here.
