Ivar's Clam Chowder
Northwest style white clam chowder with bacon
Acres of Clams
Local Manila clams, garlic-white wine butter broth, roasted red potatoes
Grey Goose Vodka, iced tea, fresh-squeezed lemonade, lemon
My party and I wanted to visit this Seattle staple before it closed its doors for several months. The food was delicious, the service was great, and we walked away pleased with our experience overall. Highly recommend their pan-seared blackened tacos with a cup of chowder. However, the true cod fish and chips is another solid item which you can't go wrong with.
Look forward to coming back here when Ivar's re-opens!
Loved the grilled salmon - the bacon wrapped halibut was overpowered by the bacon but still very tasty. We will definitely support the takeout spot for fish and chips until the restaurant reopens!
Anything on the menu that has to do with seafood. I do wish that they had offered the crab and shrimp Louis salad like they have at the Mukilteo location.
Our server Jo was amazing and made my birthday dinner very special! She is nice and helpful. Great vibe and decor. All the food was delicious and hot when it came out. No complaints, cannot wait to you you in April!
Service was great and the food was excellent. Not a lot of selection due to pending closure for COVID-19. Will come back again once they reopen.
Food was good... but how does a place with Clams in the name... run out of clams at 4:30pm??
The chowder was fantastic! I have no idea what they do to the lemonade, but it was the best I ever tasted. A must stop if you are on the waterfront, the smoke and weather reduced the view, but a few seals livened things up!!
Waitresses had the personality of lint. She had attitude of someone who didn’t want to be there we were so excited to be there had just gotten off plane from Vegas it was our first stop. Was recommended by person who now resides in Vegas. The food was absolutely delicious I definitely experienced a “food coma”. Went to another place near food was just as good and wait staff was glad we came in they were delightful. So much going on everyone has issues don’t take it out on the people who are trying to support you.
Great food, great service, great view!
Excellent view and the wonderful food made for a memorable experience. Friendly service made us feel “at home”. Can’t wait to return for more!
We enjoyed dining outside and participating in the happy hour menu before our dinner. The patio had a great view and ambiance.
Service was very good. Food--well average. Th clam chowder tasted like it was out of a can off some food service delivery truck, nothing special. Calamari, the same, prepackaged. The Cesar salad with grilled salmon was good, the fish was cooked perfect, not overdone. The fish & chips were good. The total dinner for three, with beer, $172, so I had better expectations. Would try other places before considering to return here.
Great halibut dinner. Good cod fish and just ok chips. Lava cake dessert was excellent. Best part was nice view from water front table. Hope the menu expands after COVID....
It was an amazing service, everything was perfect, I will recommend this place for sure!
I had the salmon with corn bread pudding and green beans - it was delicious. We loved the clams appetizer. My husband said his fish and chips (Halibut) was a little dry. The service was great. We sat on the patio at sunset and enjoyed the view of the water, sky, and the ferris wheel. We recommend.
Food was average nothing to write home about. Beautiful view of sunset & outdoor patio area!
I’ve always enjoyed Ivar’s. The food is amazing and you can’t beat the view
We were really looking forward to having the salmon Katsu bowl, but they replaced it with a salmon cake dish that was not very tasty.
Server was awesome!
The food was nothing short of amazing! Everything was cooked to perfection.
we were able to sit outside and it was the perfect ambience! the tables were properly spaced and all the measures were taken. the drinks and food was delicious!
Beautiful patio with food service and food.
Ivar’s has done a great job in the pandemic, spacing out tables in their outdoor space much more than 6ft apart. They have implemented a QR code scan for payment rather than needing to scan a credit card which made paying much easier with fewer touches. All staff were very courteous and professional. Highly recommend Ivar’s for a meal outside.
We were delighted to host our friends from NOLA at Ivar's Acres of Clams. It's a Seattle institution and everyone loved their lunch. We sat on the dock and enjoyed the beautiful view on a gorgeous Seattle summer day.
This was our second visit dining out, both times here at Ivar's Acres of Clams. This time was a beautifully hot day in Seattle, and there were lots of people sitting out on the balcony where we were hoping to sit. Unfortunately, I was not comfortable sitting out there with so many people, and was escorted to a section of the restaurant where we were scoially distanced yet able to still have a great view of the water.
Being a Seattle institution, I'm always wary that Ivar's will rest on its laurels and deliver a less than excellent experience. But on every annual visit when we come to town I've never been disappointed. The surroundings are great and the food and service were terrific. The preparation of the clams in the wine broth was fantastic, as was the attention paid to properly cooking the fish. The fresh strawberry salad complemented the rest of the meal. A great experience in addition to being part of Seattle's history.
Best seafood in town at one of the nicest water view locations in the city.
Alex was fabulous! The food was great and I felt good about the safety precautions they took.
Our dinner experience at Ivar's was great. We were seated on the deck, by the water. We had excellent service and the food was amazing. Highly Recommend!!
Our server Molly simply incredible! The view was amazing, as well as, the food 😋 Can’t wait to return.
First time out with friends to a restaurant in Seattle in 4 months. Patio was spotless and felt safe, service was stellar. Grateful for this wonderful business.
We sat outside by the water. Perfect weather, although I don’t think you had control of that? Ivar maybe. Food was very good tasting. Two things though: The Salmons Caesar had a small salad portion,andI hate when stems are left in lettuces. They stick out of my mouth like a rat tail.
What a blessing. Great service, great food, and great outside dining during coronavirus!
Great food on outdoor deck overlooking the bay. Perfect for a Sunday afternoon.
We loved sitting outside and enjoying the view!
Not a huge fan of the new shortened dine in menu and would have preferred more options but everything else was great.
Beautiful outdoor patio, funky, expansive indoor area, friendly staff, tasty food--even for my picky eaters.
Food was good they had a limited menu. Understandable since they recently re opened after the covid shut down. Our server was awesome and very accommodating to my wife's food restrictions.
The place was closed
I apologize that you're upset that we were closed. Along with every restaurant in King County we were forced to close among the Cornona Virus Pandemic. We are hopeful we will be able to open soon and return to some form of normalcy. We hope you are staying healthy and happy during these difficult and trying times.
Phenomenal venue and amazing food.
The service was phenomenal and would definitely come back.
