Seafood
RockCreek Seafood & Spirits is a full service restaurant and bar located in the Fremont neighborhood of Seattle, WA. We’re open Tuesday-Sunday; serving dinner from 4pm to 10pm, and happy hour from 4pm to 5:30pm.

Our menu centers around globally sourced seafood from well managed fisheries; with offerings of local Northwest familiars like crab, oysters and mussels, to more tropical fish like Kona Kampachi or Hawaiian Ono, and East Coast staples like Striped Bass. Our preparations emphasize fresh ingredients that arrive daily, and pronounced flavors from around the world.

Our urban-industrial two-story ‘fishing lodge’ was built with local and reclaimed resources by Dovetail Construction and Marian Built. Our tables were crafted from bark-beetle pine, and we even found a home for our favorite re-purposed farm equipment! Our space includes the main dining area, our killer bar, a large modern patio and an upstairs loft and private dining room.

I know times are tough during Covid but having a table right by the stair case and front door really ruined our special birthday celebration. It’s really poor service to sit someone with a reservation at the worst table in the restaurant yet walk ins get nicer more safe tables.

The tuna tartare was ruined by the spice level. You could taste the fish at all just the peppers. I wouldn’t recommend that.

We had a lovely dinner at RockCreek. The cocktails, food, service, and ambiance were all top notch. Must try their oysters, that was probably our favorite bite! We did find the corkage fee high, but maybe that's standard in Seattle. Overall, highly recommend!

Wonderful experience over all, best oysters rockerfellers, or “Brockafellers” as they call them I’ve ever had. Knowledgeable staff, and all considering the pandemic, an enjoyable evening out.

Love this place, the staff, and their vibe. Always fun, delicious, and good for brunch and dinner. The food is consistently good year after year and the staff (many of whom have been there for a long time) know how to treat you like royalty.

the food and drinks were outstanding. Had the mackerel salad, octopus, pasta with lamb ragu and rockfish and shellfish stew. every bite delicious, but real kudos go to the management and staff. Working under these covid restrictions is difficult enough, but they did it with professionalism and courtesy.

Not from around Washington. Found RockCreek through "word of mouth" and had the best Salmon/SeaBass my SO and I have ever had. Also, we usually skip dessert but we decided to try one this time and it was out of this world (S'mores). Seated outside on a beautiful day which was great. Given 90 minutes due to COVID.

Overall, the fish is the best I've ever had and the restaurant, although small and COVID, provided us with enough space and comfortable seating. I would go again if I lived in the area. Might even be one of the main reasons to come back to Seattle!

Good seafood Venue for a couple or small group. Rustic newer very open interior. Quiet conversation upstairs...active bar and festive noise level downstairs! Very Small no reservation patio fills fast.
Highly recommend 5:00-6:00 or earlier reservations and perusing menu first as you will easily go over budget as the food and spirits are tempting and atmosphere are very nice!

Oh have I ever missed dining out during the past months of the COVID closure.

I have been craving a RockCreek dinner for months. It was incredible. The heirloom tomato and burrata salad was perfection, all of the seafood was delicate and well prepared. We shared the mussels bruschetta, BBQ Spanish octopus, tuna tartare and the prawns served over delicious creamy grits.

It was great to dine outside on a warm Seattle evening. Don't miss your opportunity to enjoy their deck and the array of tasty treats that await you at RockCreek.

One of our favorite seafood-centric spots in the area. Nice mix of indoor and outdoor seating choices. Finding a place to park probably biggest challenge. Can be done but give yourself time to hunt.
Octopus and blackened ono mains were both well seasoned and delicious. Thinly shaved cauliflower was an interesting app with a pine nutty tone. 1/2 dozen kushi oysters were great but a little pricey @$20.
Excellent team service. Primary server plus food and bar runners got everything to the table quickly all night. Nice pacing between.
Got Happy Birthday wishes from staff but nothing special other than a candle added to our shared dessert.
Recommended and can go casual or a little dressed up. Enjoy!
