My opinion, if you want a big portion for cheap, go. For a restaurant overlooking the ocean and boasting fresh fish, they do not deliver. Started with calamari and seafood cocktail. Shrimp and crab were mushy while the calamari tasted oily. Got the “famous fish and chips” for dinner. Coating on the cod was tough like it had been frozen for a long time. Fries were a wilted disaster. My wife’s salad with crab was wilted and the crab mushy. Very disappointing and will never go back.

Service was middling, location and view were excellent. Was surprised that the coating on the cod (fish and chips was soggy), but the slaw and fries were both good. Overall ok, but not great.

The restaurant was COOL! When we asked if the air could be turned down or could we be moved nothing was done. It was my sister's Birthday and when making the arrangements I noted that and the staff did not acknowledge her day.
Food was good. The waitperson, forgot bread, coffee. It was disappointing

Ivar's is a great place to bring out-of-town guests and celebrate your birthday. What a beautiful view and wonderful NW foods. The service was great - attentive but not overbearing. I had my favorite Crab Louie salad for my birthday dinner. The fresh crab tasted delicious. The evening ended with a awesome chocolate cake complete with a birthday candle.

We ate here while on vacation. Ivar’s is iconic in the area. The offerings were varied and the food yummy. Not much if you don’t want fish or seafood. Basic salad is the only vegetarian option. The time between starters and main dish was a bit long for our family. We weren’t having drinks so it stretched out.

It was all good. My only issues are that it seemed others were getting in ahead of us even though I had made a reservation well in advance, and I also asked for a seat by the window since it was a birthday dinner but didn't get one. Oh well.

Otherwise very nice.

We were a party of eight, including two grade-school-age children, celebrating a wedding anniversary. We were seated in the middle of the room, so that everyone had a decent view of the water and the ferries arriving and departing. Our server, who was friendly and voluble almost to the point of being intrusive, offered lots of opinions about the various dishes on the menu. I chose the Mukilteo Seafood Saute, a medley of clams, shrimp, and fish in a buttery red sauce, rich and delicious. The food came in a reasonable amount of time, and everyone at our table was satisfied with their dish, including the kids. Drinks were refreshed regularly, and the pace of the meal was appropriate to the occasion (we were at the table about two hours). The cost of the meal was about $50 per person, excluding alcoholic beverages. Everything seemed good value for money, except the $11 strawberry shortcake, which our server raved about. It cost $11 and was short on strawberries. All in all, it was a pleasant, tasty dinner with an attentive server, and a terrific view capped by a beautiful sunset.

Have been here a few times over the years. It's consistent. Out of town guests like it too. Good food selection. Tastes are very good. My classic seafood saute was delicious and a nice combo of things I like. All at table were happy with their meals. Very minor dessert order issue cheerfully fixed on the spot and charge reversed. Our special occasion went well. Would definitely return. Good job, Ivars!

Ivar's Mukilteo Landing was definitely a 4 to 5 stars on 2 previous visits. This review is based on our most recent reservation on a Sunday evening. The food preparation and presentation was definitely did not reflect the cost of the meal. My wife's halibut was served with a large mound of dry white rice. Hmmm... seemed to me the kitchen may have run out of ingredients. The halibut was a bit overcooked. I had high expectations for my paella which did have large assortment of seafood but the dish was more like a seafood medley; not paella. The rice was almost non-existent (probably was used for the mound on my wife's plate) and the dish had not one hint of saffron and the broth was missing flavor. So, one miss out of three evening meals. Perhaps the variables for a good meal were stacked against us: the kitchen was slammed by large groups and we arrived as most of the diners were leaving on a Sunday evening. But, the service and wait staff are great (even though a patron had to ask a rather loud, drunk, and obnoxious diner to please "tone it down"). Will we return? Don't know. Perhaps just order fish and chips outside.

Great location on the water. If your spouse works in Seattle, have them take a train, only 4 blocks away. Free parking for Ivars. Make reservations on the website, and ask for a window seat if available. Great datenight for the two of us.
