RockCreek Seafood & Spirits
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.

Everything was superb, from the butter with the bread service to the crispy skin Icelandic char. We had smooth buttery oysters and beautifully mixed cocktails. Excellent and attentive service. Will definitely be returning.
Food service and ambience were all superb. We enjoyed arctic char, lamb Ragu, mackerel, excellent cocktails and a creative dessert. Will be back as soon as the governor allows it!
Amazing food and service! Everything was so flavorful and fresh.
Simply the best! I love the food, ambiance and everything about this restaurant!
I really like this establishment and have always had a great meal! This last time was disappointing because I looked at the takeout menu prior to going and was told 2 of the items listed were not available and the menu had not been updated since prior to COVID. I highly suggest updating the menu items to ones that are available.
Great food and service!
We made a reservation via Open Table. When we arrived they did not have record of the reservation. They had run into this problem before with other folks who had multiple Open Table accounts. They were kind enough to let us know what happened and were able to seat us at a table in the bar.
Excellent service by the hostess!
At the bar, Cody was the bartender and our server. Super friendly and helpful with our menu questions and makes a great cocktail!
The food was excellent as usual. We were especially happy with the Prawns and the Sea Bass.
Definitely going back!
Wonderful meal and service!
Got tiny table by the stairs, so a lot of foot trafic, kind of uncomfortable. The table was not big enough for the plates we ordered, having wine glasses on top also makes it cumbersome. Food was ok, we had the octopus and calamari, both very good. The tuna tartar was just ok.
If you make a reservation, make sure to get a table for 4, otherwise you can get stuck with a tiny table.
Waitress and hostess are very friendly and courteous.
Never a bad meal or a missed step at Rockcreek. Everything you want and more for an elevated neighborhood spot.
Amazing food! We had oysters, 2 small plates and one main dish. Service was fantastic. We will definitely be back.
Both classic & unique takes on seafood. All super fresh, balanced (mostly) & some truly inventive dishes. Tried multiple offerings. Get oysters! Tartare had bit too much horseradish but we'll forever add it when making tuna @ home. Octopus & lamb excellent. Service exceptional! Only misstep was 'happy anniversary' @ very end vs start & no accompanying special treat from kitchen or bar. Regardless, we'd go back!
I have been at this restaurant many time, the food is delicious light but with lots of flavor.
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.
Excellent food and drinks menu, on the expensive side but worth it!
Incredible seafood & drinks! Great place for a first date, birthday, anniversary, or place to pop the question???
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.
Delicious food. Great service. Mask-wearing and social-distancing. A little bit cold inside, but overall great experience.
Best seafood in Seattle, hands down! Just love this place, it never disappoints!
Their happy hour tuna with an Old Fashioned or two is the bomb, then we split an appetizer and an entree and we are set. Having been going their for years.
This was my second experience at Rock Creek. The food is phenomenal and so is the environment. I will keep coming back!
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.
I ordered the lamb pasta dish, threw it up later that night. Was there for an anniversary, they did nothing to make it special.
One of the best experiences I’ve had! The food was incredible and I can’t wait to go back.
Such a wonderful night at Rockcreek. Our server was wonderful, the food was delicious (especially the oysters and cauliflower salad) and the setting was terrific. Can't wait to go back!
Never disappointed, great place to have a quality dinner with family or friends.
First time back post-CV, menu still amazing, quality of food and service was fantastic. Doing a great job with the health and safety protocols and they were busy given the current situation and standards. We will be back.
Delicious food; loved it
Lovely experience. Nice atmosphere, excellent service and the small plates were delicious.
The quality of food your paying is definitely worth it. Delicious and beautifully served. The taste of every dish is exquisite for the price your paying. The drinks are also very good. Been here few times and it never disappoint us.
Tuna crudo, shrimp & grits, oysters all were excellent
My favorite Seattle restaurant! Consistent in quality, service and deliciousness ❤️
Would’ve liked more food. Just the fish is not enough for the price.
Great food.! Really good wine. Great ambiance. Reasonably priced. Great for date nights.
I would definitely go back again.
In town for the weekend and wanted good seafood. This restaurant delivered! Good food, very nice service, good safety protocols for Covid.
Food and service was amazing as usual! My group of 3 all felt safe in the restaurant and could see all precautions were in action. Thank you for the wonderful meal - it was so great to have dinner out!
Sitting above street level outdoors was really pleasant and chill. The food was absolutely fabulous... such innovative, fresh interpretations! Our waitress was top notch- funny, knowledgeable (taught us all about salmon skin), and patient! Great night!!!
