Fish and chips were TERRIBLE, dry and over cooked. It was like the plate sat under a warming light all afternoon.
It’s such a nice restaurant. I was truly disappointed.

I frequent ivars in Seattle on lake union all the time so I was expecting the same quality of food. Sadly it wasn’t the case. Service was great but food was sub par. Not a great way to celebrate our anniversary.

Thank you for such a wonderful 27th birthday experience. I chose Ivars for the quality of food and service also the menu never disappoints. Our server was friendly and prompt and the manager on staff made sure we were well accommodated. All in all a lovely evening with quality food and excellent conversation. Generally I go to the Salmon house on Lake Union but no one wants to go to Seattle in New Years Eve just for dinner.

It was just overall average. Not bad, but not great. I wouldn’t spend the money again. I️ didn’t think it was worth the experience. The food was okay, but nothing unique or special. Our service was pretty slow and not much attention paid to us.

Wonderful Christmas Eve dinner for our family. Seated quickly at window table with view of snow falling on Puget Sound. Server was friendly, knowledgeable and provided very prompt service. Food delicious as usual-crab cakes, Taste of the Northwest platter, salmon. We have had such a positive experience here every year on Christmas Eve, we plan on continuing our family tradition there.

Delicious seafood for a very fair price! We had our Company Holiday Season celebration in this restaurant. Service personal was in general nice but sometimes they seemed to be a little bit slow and stressed. Beside that I would always come back to this great Restaurant.

For this particular evening, the service was excellent, food was fresh and light, and healthy (broccoli salad). We have been in the bar twice before, with not such great service or food. Not sure what the difference was - other than the restaurant and close to a holiday, but all was outstanding.

Excellent experience; being on the waterfront is a plus. The food is fanominal! It is a bit pricey... but as I mentioned, THE FOOD IS EXCELLENT. Wait staff is polite and mellow (not trying to just push heads in and out). I would recommend a reservation; as a point of reference, I made a 7 person reservation on the same day as the event, during December.

I was there for my birthday for lunch. The menu was so disappointing since I was there last. They served a vegetable side dish that I thought had uncooked potatoes. It turned out that it was uncooked root vegetables. The lingcod was the smallest portion that I have ever seen there.
Luckily, I had a birthday coupon and didn't have to pay. The best part was their chocolate mousse desert, but they are a seafood restaurant.
Oh well, next time its Anthony's Homeport.

Right at the Mukilteo landing, where you can watch ferries (to Whidbey Island) come and go, this commodious restaurant takes full advantage of the view and also of the availability of local ingredients: our "seafood club" salads were full of delicious seafood, including smoked scallops ... mmmm. Attentive service, comfortable seating, and great food make this a popular spot to meet up and dine.

Everything was great! The service was excellent and very attentive. The food was very good, although the rice had a little spice added. We enjoyed the window seat, watching the ferries come and go on their schedule. We arrived a little early, but we were seated shortly afterwards. All in all, we had an enjoyable time and meal.

We went with another couple for the Veteran's Day special and had a wonderful dinner. The food, the company, our waitress and the restaurant were just great. We really appreciate Ivar's for recognizing veterans on their special day with a free entree. We've had many happy times at this location over the last thirty years and we will be back soon.

Ivar's offered all veterans or serving military a free dinner last Saturday night. How wonderful! We went (my husband is a 20-year veteran of the USAF) and saw many families celebrating their family's service. The veteran was offered a good selection of 5-6 entrees, one of which was our favorite (Macademia crusted ling cod). The best we've ever had...

The waitstaff really made the military folks feel very special. We talked to an old vverteran from WWII who said he was in the Army infantry in Germany! I had to give him a hug and kiss on the cheek.

Besides the wonderful food, service and ambiance, the feeling that night was beyond wonderful!

Visited for Veteran’s Day meal. Ivar’s does it up right to honor our veterans. Server offered a sincere thank you to our 2 veterans. The menu selections for the free veterans meal were wonderful. No skimping on portions and the entrees were cooked to perfection. Thank you to Ivar’s for honoring our veterans in this way.
