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.

    As always, the seafood at Ivar's Mukilteo was perfectly prepared and presented, with a wonderful view, even on a very rainy day. Most noteworthy, however, on this occasion, was our waitress, Adrianne. She was incredibly attentive and pleasant, without being intrusive, saw to our needs before we were even aware of them, and new how to present a meal, one course at a time with a smile and courteousness. She made sure this was a birthday dinner to remember! (The noise level in the dining room depends on the courtesy of the diners, naturally, which in this instance was a bit much.) But Adrianne and the food more than compensated.

    First time in the door was about 1984, said to myself, "I see why people in the Northwest brag on Ivar's." Everything, from the steamers to the Copper River salmon, is always excellent with quick service to boot. Will continue to enjoy, hopefully for many years to come.

    Celebrated Grandma's 84th birthday with the family. Everyone had a fantastic meal. We asked for and enjoyed a window table right next to the ferry. Weather was spectacular too, which made it even better!!! It really is a family favorite spot! Our server was delightful and took excellent care of us!

    We loved the food however was disappointed in cleanliness of restrooms and over crowded restaurant. We sat on patio but couldn't relax because of cheap plastic chairs and being right on top of other diners. The music volume combined with the conversations around us made us disappointed we spent so much money to eat at the Landing. We did not find it relaxing and will not be back.

    Ivar's in Mukilteo is one amazing place. While most people associate Ivar's with Fried food or fast food, this location sports not only the outdoor walk up Ivar's but also Fine dining and a tremendous view of the Puget Sound looking towards Whidbey Island. We are never disappointed with the food.

    Even during the Lighthouse festival, we managed to find parking so we could have a late lunch at this favorite spot. With the online reservation system, it was a breeze to secure our preferred time and we were seated immediately. Our cozy table for two was right next to the window for a great view of the ferry, water and Whidbey Island. The appetizer tower is a bit pricey but totally worth it! I can't wait to get back.

    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.

    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.

    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!)

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
