Ivar's Acres of Clams
A Seattle tradition since 1938, this casual waterfront restaurant has a spectacular view of Elliott Bay. For more than 60 years, people have come here for fresh seafood and a good time. Wooden tables and chairs fill the large, open space. Choose from a selection that includes Oysters Rockefeller, Seafood Pasta, Dungeness Crab-Topped Prawns, clams, Bouillabaisse, the restaurant's famous clam chowder and more. A private dining room can accomodate up to 50 people.
They claim it and they deliver, choices include sit down or take out so you can walk the waterfront with a steaming serving of great chowder. This is one of the restaurants I will go back to on my return trip. The other is lowells in pikes market.
We've moved to Arizona from Seattle. Ivars' excellent seafood is definately what I miss the most! There is nothing, and I mean nothing, like sitting on the waterfront eating seafood and feeding the seagulls. Whaaa!
As soon as we get off the plane at SEATAC, we check into our hotel, and head for Ivars! Great view, better food! Halloween is always fun there. You can't go there w/out having a big huge bowl of Clam Chowder - its unamerican! I love getting left over rolls (if there are any) and taking them outside to feed the gulls! They keep everyone entertained while we eat. The view of the ferry's coming in is exciting. If the dinner prices are too steep for some, lunch is very reasonable.
