My family member were more pleased by the food than I was, crab cakes in particular. Service was very respectable, despite rude folk at the table.
I would recommend this venue but not necessarily go out of my way to do so.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWe celebrated my wife's birthdayWe celebrated my wife's birthday with a window table.

All the food we ordered was so tasty we shared just about every plate. Mother enjoyed hot tea, dad went foe the margarita and I gave into a mimosa with my early Sunday lunch.
The interior is a bit dated, however, they completely make up for that with good seafood, professional staff and one of the best views in the Puget Sound.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMIvar's Mukilteo Landing - GreatIvar's Mukilteo Landing how I love you! How can you argue with one of the most scenic settings with a classic northwest seafood menu. Service is warm, welcoming and informative. It can get busy so reservations are highly recommended. The bar is extremely well stocked and is a great place to have a drink and watch the activity in Puget / Possession Sound.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMRushed ConfusionOur initial greeting was very friendly and professional as was the hostess. They saw our Open Table Reservation and seated us right away. (At this point, I was wondering why it had been a year, since our last visit - besides, this was my location for my previous birthday dinners and other special occasions for several years)
Our server came over to our table as soon as we were seated and asked to take our drink order, at which I told him that I needed time to look over the wine list. Within a minute, he was back again. I had to quickly make a selection. When he came back with the wine, he took our order. Wrong order arrived. He seemed to be rushed and had to be called back - he insisted that he had the right order.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMService and food excellentService and food excellent as usual. Penn cove Mussels done to perfection. Nice B-day touch of serving burnt cream for dessert.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat view, great food!We chose Ivars Mukilteo for our anniversary dinner because it has a spectacular setting and great food. We were not disappointed. Our table was ready on time, service attentive but not overbearing, portions generous, and food tasty and well-presented. We were not rushed, courses came at just the right pace. The only drawback was that our table was a bit too close to the bar showing the NCAA playoff games and open seating in the dining room, the noise level was a bit high. However this would not keep us from going back at any time.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMI had the halibut with asparagusI had the halibut with asparagus and green papaya slaw...the slaw wasn't great but the halibut was very fresh and melted in my mouth. I wish restaurants had better substitutions for potatoes, like quinoa or brown rice or something more healthy. The waitstaff was very attentive, almost too much so, I felt like our waitress was constantly at our table...interupting our conversation many times...it just felt like it was too much attention. The restaurant is right on the waterfront and we had a nice table by the window. We had a wonderful dinner here.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGood Rockefeller SauceIt was Easter Sunday. We were too late for brunch but the dinner menu made it a very special day. The sun was shining and the view was beautiful. Our waiter was very pleasant and knowledgeable about the menu. That was appreciated. We were allowed to visit and did not feel hurried to eat and leave. It had been awhile since I had been to Ivar's but I will definitely be back soon. And the mussels and clams with the Rockefeller sauce was fresh and delicious.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMIvar's is a tried and trueIvar's is a tried and true restaurant with an extraordinary view.

Atmosphere was very nice and the hostess seated us very quickly on a Friday night. Probably the best part of the experience was the accommodating nature of the hostesses and the waitress. Very pleasant and attentive.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMIvar's at Mukilteo lived upIvar's at Mukilteo lived up to our expectations. I had requested a window seat and that request was granted.

And when my father turned 80 years young on the 8th of March, there was little doubt as to where we would break bread as a family once again. Eric was our server, he was incredibly considerate and attentive to our party of eight, but not over bearing. With little direction, he arranged to bring out the cake I dropped off earlier in the day, and on a nicely appointed display cart the cake was lit with voices raised to sing. It was a fabulous meal. Thank you all for making it so memorable.3/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
