The service was great and our lunch meeting went very well.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat view and food in Seattle.Great view and food in Seattle. This was a business dinner, and I would return again for business or special occasion. Food was done perfectly and service was delivered very well.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat appetizersMy girlfriend and I have gotten in the habit of ordering a bunch of appetizers instead of entrees. That worked really well here. Crab cakes and tuna tartare were both good, but the Crab Rockefeller was the real killer. It's a huge plate with big chunks of crab, a buttery sauce, and plenty of bacon bits. So big and rich that it would be hard for one person to finish. Highly recommended.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat spot for Mother's DayI took my parents and aunt and uncle to Chandler's Crabhouse for Mother's Day brunch. First of all, it is in a beautiful spot on South Lake Union. The view is terrific. We were seated in a smaller area of the restaurant where there were only four large tables. The atmosphere in this room was quiet and intimate. We could actually hold a conversation at normal voice levels which is rare for Mother's Day brunches. The food was excellent. The coffee was fresh. The seafood, as expected, was incredibly fresh and impeccably prepared. The waitstaff was attentive and accommodating. We never found ourselves looking for or waiting for service. Highly recommended as an upscale (but not overly fancy) dining spot.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place for seafoodWent for Mothers day brunch. The brunch menu was not as expansive as I would have hoped as there were not very many choices. But what we did choose was excellent fare and the service was excellent as well.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMLives up to reputationFor us, this is too expensive for everyday dining, but for any special occasion (such as the birthday we were celebrating) the food of all kinds (not just crab), the service, the wine choices, etc. are all superb -- always, including this meal.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat restaurantI chose it because it's near my hotel.
However, it was the beast choice.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMblue skies. great view. greatblue skies. great view. great food. first time there. we have to return5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing Views & Great Food!After an issue back in September, we decided to give Chandler's another chance after speaking with the management. We had dinner here on Saturday evening. The evening was so nice we asked for a table outside and we got one with a great view of Lake Union. The view was absolutely amazing! The appetizer was great, and the main courses were even better. The crab legs and the truffled potatoes wedges were great! Chandler's definitely redeemed themselves. We look forward to making this one of our dinning destinations this summer!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat view on Lake Union,Great view on Lake Union, wonderful food and excellent service. A very nice place for lunch.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat spotWeather was beautiful, the food fantastic, and great staff.

Thanks to the entire Chandler staff.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our 27th weddingThis was our 27th wedding anniversary, it was a evening that was very memorable. Thank you for special evening. Food & service was superb.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautiful venue, service wasBeautiful venue, service was top notch. Food was excellent - if you are a big eater, you might add an appetizer or salad. Crab cakes with sauces were excellent! This is a high-end, fairly expensive restaurant. If budget is tight, try happy hour specials - 3 pm to closing each day. Outdoor patio would be fabulous on a hot summer day.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThree for business lunch onThree for business lunch on a beautiful day. All had fish tacos, beautifully presented and yummy blackened Mahi with bib salad on the plate as well. Crab bisque also very good. Bottomless iced tea. I'm very happy. Be sure to park in the paid lot through the gate - they validate.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMI was very pleased with theI was very pleased with the restaurant. I always enjoy going here.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service in a beautifulGreat service in a beautiful setting. Excellent food.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMI went twice. The first timeI went twice. The first time was so good that I went back with my husband. The second time the portions were very small, hardly any crab in the pot pie, just flavor. It was such a disappointment. The first meal I had there the pot pie was loaded with crab. They ran out of the key lime pie, which was also excellent the first time. The did not substitute a different desert, and we didn't want ice cream or sherbert. They did give us a rain check for the key lime pie though.
I will definitely go back. Probably a fluke on the last day of restaurant week.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMSeattle on the LakeWe had a wonderful, relaxed dinner on a beautiful evening with the most delicious food from the Seattle Restaurant Week Menu. It was a surprise and delight that the food portions were very large as we thought they might cut back given the special rates offered for the event. The service was wonderful and the food amazing.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of my FavoritesOne of my favorites. Great view of Lake Union and great seafood.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst timersThe food was very good and the view was amazing. Our wait staff was attentive and knowledgeable.

Glad we went.4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMMy husband and I had a wonderfulMy husband and I had a wonderful evening. We were given a table by the window, and enjoyed the view of Lake Union and the fancy yachts. The highlight for me was the crab pot pie. My husband enjoyed his cerviche and prawn fettucine. Our waitress was very attentive and knowledgeable on the wine list. We will be back!4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMVery nice view of Lake UnionVery nice view of Lake Union and Gas Works Park.

The servers were friendly, pleasant and prompt. The atmosphere was great and the food was fabulous. The oysters were awesome and I couldn't stop eating them.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMWe actually opted for theWe actually opted for the Happy Hour in the bar. Our waitress was awesome & gave us some great suggestions for food. My husband had not been here before so it was a nice way to try out the menu. And it all looked so good on the menu. We wanted to try the Crab Mac & Cheese but the waitress told us to wait until after we ate what we had already order. So glad she did, because we were full and just had enough room for dessert. We asked another employee what they suggested for dessert & he suggested the Key Lime Pie. It was so amazing. It'll be hard not to order that when we come back. Thank you so much for a great experience~ mmmmmmmmmmm4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGet the crab!They are known for their crab offerings. It's silly to get anything else. The crab is always fresh and tasty--a true, Pacific Northwestern treat!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMfood was good just took afood was good just took a little longer then we thought4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat restaurantIt had been many years since I had been at Chandlers, but went there for my wife's birthday.

Only disappointment for the Sunday Brunch was that it was a limited menu and we weren't able to order some different appetizers. Like, Clams, or some Shrimp Cocktails.
We will be back.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWe are always pleased withWe are always pleased with the quality of the food, the service and the view.

Beautiful setting, great food and made for a great evening!3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMThe most perfect eveningWhen I first arrived I was kindly greeted by the hostess. She welcomed me with a great smile. I went and sat at the bar and ordered a glass of wine. Both bartenders were great! The bartender (lady) let the hostess know I was in the lounge so when my table was ready she could find me. I was really impressed that when I made my reservation I asked for a window table and the staff made sure we had one. I cannot say enough about Maria! She is amazing! She made our night. Maria was so informative and descripive har suggestions were awesome. We will be back just to have her serve us. My date and I couldn't stop talking about her and how perfect your staff especially Maria made our night! Thank you, thank you thank you!!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went to Chandler's on aWe went to Chandler's on a whim on friday evening. We were lucky to get a window table with awesome views. To top it all, the service, the ambience and the food were all super. We had halibut, salmon, crab, scallops and the chowder among the 4 of us. Halibut was a bit firm, but the other dishes were excellent. The only reason for giving food a 4 star is that there were hardly any choices for vegetarians.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways enjoy the food, viewAlways enjoy the food, view and service! Celebrating my birthday, over lunch with mom, was delightful! Thank you!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a very beautiful andWe had a very beautiful and interesting meal with great ingredients with wonderful seasonings. Too cold to sit outside but we had a nice window seat off the main dining room. Expensive but worth it!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMWe asked for a quiet tableWe asked for a quiet table by the window and got exactly what we wanted. We come every year for my birthday and are never disappointed! We love the whiskey crab soup and your crab louie salad. We had our rehearsal dinner for our wedding right across the lake from your restaurant, which we can see from the window. So Chandler's is a special place for us. And we always love it! Wish I could remember the name of our waitress. She took great care of us but also gave us our space. Thank you!3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Option for Sunday BrunchBeautiful spot for a Sunday brunch with views across Lake Union to Gasworks park through the tall windows. Sailboats and colorful kayaks with the occasional landing or take-off of a float plane add to the interest. Food was excellent (crab omelet!) and the included basket of cinnamon coffee cake and fresh fruit was a great addition.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for brunch. Lots ofGreat for brunch. Lots of food included. The crab cake benedicts are amazing. The Chandler's Benedict was more food for the money but had an almost bland crab flavor by comparison. Awesome selection of bellinis. One odd thing was there was a wedding that started in the room we were in just as we were seated and we had to wait until it finished to even get drinks. It seems to me like the weeding should have been required to rent the entire room. Otherwise, the service was excellent. I want to return for dinner.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service!Food was great. Service as good as it gets. Looks directly out on Lake Union. Romantic, cozy, comfortable and easy to park. Perfect date night restaurant.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMBest in the WestWE hadn't been to this restaurant for a while, and it never has disappointed us as one of the best Seattle has!3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was our first visit toIt was our first visit to Chandler's Crabhouse, and we were happy that we went.

My wife had a crab cake (one very tall cake with a choice of three sauces); Delicious Salad, lobster bisque and desserts were excellent. Service was outstanding. Staff was very welcoming. Great view even on an overcast day.3/10/2013 12:00:00 AM5* place for a business dinnerGot to find a reasonably priced place for a dinner on Sunday night before 3 days of hard work while visiting Seattle on business. This place was easy to find, easy to park at (and it's free on Sundays) and they were expecting my colleague and me.
The dinner for $100 plus tips with no wine but with some desert was good and healthy, crab cake is a to-go thing for those not willing to deal with real crab legs. They've admitted me wearing a t-shirt and sport shoes but I'd feel more comfortable in business casual, indeed.
Oh yeah, you'll get a wonderful view on the lake from this place, indeed. So if I was in the mood for a romantic dinner, I'd went there as well!3/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful food and great atmosphereWonderful food and great atmosphere! Perfect for special occasions.2/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
