A word from Ivar's Mukilteo Landing
Ivar’s Mukilteo Landing is pleasantly situated on the water next to the ferry dock in historic Mukilteo, just 30 minutes north of Seattle. From the scenic dining room and outside deck, you can watch the ferries come and go as you enjoy mouth-watering seafood and a wide assortment of Ivar's famous original recipe entrees and many other Northwest favorites. Ivar's Mukilteo Landing is open for lunch and dinner.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "I ate the Halibut Fih 'N Chips, and it was so delicious. It was not greasy and the quality of the fish was so moist and flaky, just outstanding. Of course the location on the water and next to the Mukilteo ferry providing an incredible Puget Sound view."

  • "We had a group for dinner in the Fireside Room and had great service and excellent food. The only complaint I would have is the loudness in the room. We couldn't talk to people unless they were right beside us, and to talk across the table we had to repeat ourselves several times to be heard. Conversation is just about impossible in this room with such live acoustics. Maybe they could add something to the ceiling to soften the bouncing of the sound waves. When you have a room full of hard surfaces, there is no place for the sound to be absorbed. I am a music major and very aware of acoustics, and although hard surfaces and high ceilings are great for singing when everyone is quiet, they are horrible for large groups."

  • "We always enjoy Ivar's for fresh seafood - and great clam chowder! We always make sure that we visit this restaurant when we are in Washington. Good service and nice table with beautiful view."
    Dined on 8/14/2014
  • "Ivar's is always one of my favorite places for dinner, especially when I have out-of-town guests. When the weather is nice, eating on the patio over the Sound at sunset is hard to beat. The menu is always great, including excellent drink options."
    Dined on 8/13/2014
  • "great service, great view, great food. The late lunch/early dinner time is great for a leisurely chat and eat. No rush from the staff even as the dinner crowd starts to come in."
    Dined on 8/11/2014
  • "Our waiter was overwhelmed, slow and rude. We usually have great service. He was put out when we asked for anything. Ordered a cocktail never got it. Had to send back the crab bisque because it was cold, came out cold again and switched to chowder and was still charged for both."
    Dined on 8/10/2014
  • "Our reservation changed as our Chinese guests were now three instead of two. We were kindly seated in the bar and had a long wait for our guests to arrive. The waiter was especially considerate while keeping us well satisfied. . . snack and drinkwise. . . until our late guests arrived. Our friends drove up from Portland and were several minutes late. Not to worry, as the waiter understood and made us feel welcomed the entire visit. Kudos to such a fine staff. It was another great evening at Ivars."
    Dined on 8/10/2014
  • "undercooked, woody greenbeans, overcooked salmon and pretty good couscous-very boring food, noisy, chaotic atmosphere -much prefer Arnies as I can hear my dinner companions there, also the food is more interesting and perfectly cooked. As for noise, it is interesting that no review option exists in that category for TOO noisy (not energetic or don't recall or quiet!)"

  • "Love celebrating ten years of marriage there, it's romantic and the food is great!"

  • "It was a beautiful day, I'd asked for a window seat, we got the corner table by the ferry dock, good service, good food, Mt. Baker in the background, aircraft carrier went by---perfect day!"
    Dined on 7/31/2014
  • "Food was good...went specifically for crab and it was great. Had the tower of seafood appy and it was all delicious except the sauce seemed to be almost the same for all three. Our waitress was lovely...chatted to us and was efficient."
    Dined on 7/30/2014
  • "Great restaurant - location at water edge - wonderful mid-price menu - outstanding food & service - staff pleasant & attentive - atmosphere terrific inside and out- will come again!"
    Dined on 7/29/2014
  • "Never got our appetizers,waited an hour for food, and four out of five of our plates were overcooked- fried oysters were more like hockey pucks, chicken was like Jerky. The view was great, but that's not why I was there"
    Dined on 7/29/2014
  • "My friend loved hers, my salid was ok shrimp Louie, not much flavor, asked for extra veggies, they didn't cut them up,I had to. Dressing didn't have enough flavor."
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "Most of the food was good, the kids shrimp cocktail and coconut crusted prawns were great! The cashew crusted ling cod was not appealing in texture. The fish itself was good but the crust had a soft nut texture that was strange and it was bland too. The mini creme brulee was burnt on the top that came off very bitter but the custard was lovely. Wonderful service and the kids enjoyed themselves."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "This location is very busy w/ferry traffic but it's a part of the charm too. Lot's people walking around and enjoying the beautiful beach and city park. If you like to crab and/or fish you can do it from the pier adjacent to the ferry dock and Ivar's. Being a native to the Pacific Northwest I just love Mukilteo."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "Ivar's at Mukilteo Landing is a "go-to" place when we have out of town guests, some of whom have returned with us again and again. Some come from New Mexico and they love it for the sea food. Two summers ago our adult children hosted their wedding reception in the side room and it was a great venue and everyone was comfortable and loved it. We have a special attachment to Ivar's also because our parents loved coming here for many years and now that they are in heaven, it's a place of remembrance."
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "Ivar's is not just a fish and chips place. The waitstaff was super friendly and helpful to my family, including my shy 5 year old (who quickly opened up to our waitress) making everything enjoyable."
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "The food was not our favorite this past visit (salmon/poblano and prime rib) but that was personal choice. The noise level is what will have us rethinking another visit. The 2 person booth does not allow for talking or conversation unless you yell. Not as romantic as planned."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "The food was exceptional and our guests so pleased. We celebrated 2 birthdays and they comped the desserts for the birthday ladies and even sang happy birthday. Ferry traffic, boating, crabbing and fishing from the docks kept our out of towners intrigued and it was a very pleasant afternoon. Server knew his stuff and was very friendly and efficient. The razor clams are always a winner."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "This is one of my wife's favorite restaurants. The food is always good and the service is great. Brittany was our server and she did a great job, attentive enough but not over-bearing and intrusive. Brittany had a great personality and sense of humor."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "My wife and I celebrated my birthday with a free entrée. We enjoyed the sheered ahi tuna and coconut shrimp appetizers and both of us had the "Taste of Northwest" entrée that was excellent."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "Ivar's is a long-time favorite place to dine. Friendly and professional staff."

  • "90 plus degrees outside and the fireplace was going. Impossible to hear yourself think much less have a conversation. Unexciting menu. A major disappointment overall."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Consistently great service, great food, and great atmosphere. After all, it's Ivars!"
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "Our group of 6 has used the same table numerous times over the years. It is a great place for us to meet as we come from 3 different places to have lunch together. The food and service are always very good which we appreciate. There is no pressure to leave the table until we are ready. The lunch specials are always excellent and the regular menu the same. Ivar's clam chowder is one of the best anywhere. We enjoy the water view and watching the ferries arrive and leave. Two of our group take the ferry to get to Ivar's each time we get together. We always leave with a very positive feeling about our lunch experience."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "Enjoyed dinner on the deck watching the ferry come and go and the waves crash. The fresh salmon was great and the strawberry shortcake was fantastic."
    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "Because it was a celebration of our 46 years of marriage, we returned to our favorite restaurant Ivar's in Mukilteo. We had requested a window seat, knowing it is always first come first serve. The staff greeted us cheerfully, and we only waited a very short time to be seated. They put us at our favorite table..unknown to them, as we have sat there many times. It was great food, as always, great service with many smiles, and a night of great memories. Thanks you Ivar's for making it once again a very special time. We love everything about this restaurant and will be coming here for many years to come. My husband is still talking about the blackened salmon..and my lingcod was delicious. I have had it before,and I love it. Thanks again to all"

  • "We had reservations but had to wait 15 minutes for them to clean the table. The food was expensive for lunch and mediocre at best. The service was slow and unattentive. The waitress was oblivious to the fact that we had 2 kids (2 and 6) and when she had our check in her hand she stood in the doorway chatting to another wait person while we sat waiting for the bill. There are so many fantastic restaurants to frequent, I would not go to Ivars at Mukilteo Landing again."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "On a recent summer evening I was blown away to find a Templeton Rye Manhattan featured on the menu. Favorite whiskey, favorite drink, made perfectly. All the food was good, but the best was the grilled Copper River salmon on wilted spinach and fingerling potatoes, with a garlic and bacon aioli. This is what Ivar's does so well: takes local ingredients, and without going all gourmet, ups the concept of a dish, its preparation and presentation into something special. Our evening was enhanced by super-pro Janet, our server, who provided friendly, attentive service."

  • "We had a wonderful time! We celebrated my daughter's 14th birthday. Brian, our server was awesome. He was very knowledgeable on the menu and the wine list. This was a great experience!"

  • "I am a widow but have memories of my last Anniversary there. My husband had a big oxygen tank and was in a scooter. He was a nonsmoker but damaged his lungs in the military. I knew it would be our last Anniversary together after a long marriage. Your staff gave us a window seat by moving chairs. They even snapped a photo for us. On my recent visit I took my friend a recent widow and they made sure we had a table with a good view. Staff excellent."

  • "Nothing but positive things to say! Good amazing & service is top notch."

    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "Went to lunch here to celebrate Mother's Day with my mom (about a month late). Mom had french dip and I had Salmon, they were both great, although the salmon portion was a tad small. Loved the cornbread pudding. A friendly place with a decent atmosphere and killer view if you happen to be seated at a window."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "We had a lovely view, and the service was excellent, as my daughter does not eat dairy or wheat, and our waitress did a great job of trying to adjust the choices to what she needed. The brunch menu was rather small, however, so if you are a foodie or you are looking for variety, it was limited. It was also a holiday, and we were late making reservations, so it was great to find a place that could fit us in on short notice."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Very nice presentation of food. Seared ahi was excellent in preparation. Convenient. Ample parking."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "This was my first time using this online reservation tool and I was not completely sure how well the restaurant and this tool communicated. The restaurant was ready when we got there (even with our large group) and everything went very well. Ivars is a great medium to upper scale eating experience and I highly recommend it for special occasions."
