Seafood
RockCreek Seafood & Spirits is a full service restaurant and bar located in the Fremont neighborhood of Seattle, WA. We’re open daily; serving dinner from 4pm to 11pm, and brunch from 9am until 3pm on Saturdays and Sundays.

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.

It was our anniversary and we couldn’t have chosen a better place to celebrate! The concierge to bussers and everyone in between worked together like a well oiled machine. The food was off the chart delicious - and was probably the best meal ive had in Seattle. Cudos to Rockcreek for an experience second to none!

We had a delightful meal. We got mostly small plates that were all unique and delicious. The wait staff was kind to course it out for us so the hot food remained hot and the cold foods remained cold while we were trying everything without feeling rushed. Cocktails were excellent as well. Highly recommend.

The food is creative and delicious, yet the sound level is so intense that it is hard to have a relaxing evening. Our service was lackluster and inattentive. Our waiter did not check back to see how everything was going and since the wrong beer had been delivered, we had to flag someone else down. We had made our reservation a month in advance, and noted that it was a birthday celebration, yet the two table options presented were by the door and service station. I had really looked forward to coming back here after our first experience, but now will explore other places.

We dine here several times a year, and RockCreek is one of our all-time favorites. Tonight was uncommonly busy, and yet both service and food were 100% on point throughout the night. We weren’t rushed in any way, our server was ever friendly and accommodating, and the food was stellar, as always. That it happened to be a special occasion for us only made us appreciate the outstanding teamwork all the more. Thank you!!

We ordered food similar to the table next to us so there was confusion with server being the food. Food took too long to arrive. Ordered the steak which only had 4 small asparagus, a small smear of corn purée, and a very chewy fatty piece of steak. For spending almost $200 for dinner for two people for our anniversary this was a bad experience. Poor service, long wait, so loud you couldn’t hear the other person, and food quality as well as portions, make it a place we would never return too or recommend. The table next to us also had similar issues with long wait and food confusion.

very high-quality food, very high-quality staff, and just a great menu to choose from that is focused on seafood and the main ingredients without a lot of excess or flourish. This is a great place to have a relaxed meal but enjoy some of the best oysters you’re going to find in Seattle. The servers are some of the best in the world at what they do. Seriously.

Wonderful meal again. I am so glad that I got the opaka. Rich & meaty, on a bed of creamy grits with nice roasted tomatoes. Super-flavorful.

If you have four people, consider the whole branzino for an appetizer.

This was by far our best meal in Seattle. Calamari and Black Cod-superlative. Outstanding, low-key, knowledgeable and very friendly service. Industrial, cool vibe only added to the meal. Usually, as a New Orleanian, my usual high food standards get killed, but RockCreek did not disappoint in the least. Can’t wait to return.

We wanted excellent fish, and we got it. We were not expecting the entrees to be served with no vegetables and no starch. Fortunately our server alerted us as we were making our selections. It is really a $$$-$$$$ restaurant if you want a reasonable meal, and we are not big eaters. The black cod and pasta dishes we ordered were very tasty. Everything was very fresh.

As always, the entree was perfectly prepared and melted in my mouth with all flavors coming at me! Thanks to the chefs and kitchen for accommodating my highly restrictive dietary needs -- I'm so looking forward to resuming enjoyment of the full breadth of flavors complementary to the specific tasty fish.

This restaurant knows how to produce an excellent menu for seafood, but execution by the kitchen is superb and certainly among the best in the city. Combine with attentive service (the waitpersons get a workout carrying trays to the upstairs dining area: think tip), an excellent wine/cocktail/beverage list and great value for the price and this becomes "the go-to" seafood restaurant in Seattle. Our only opportunity for improvement suggestion is to rethink the short uninspired dessert menu which doesn't pair with the rest of the food and beverage offerings.

The food was great, enjoyable, my pasta was amazing. The service was slow and unattentive. The host was really nice and got us seated outside, and the bartender was great. One of the signature drinks, their take on a picso sour, was bland and boring - no imagination and seriously flavorless. Worst pisco sour I ever had - even so/so bars make good pisco sours. The bread was wonderful ($6.00 with butter) but they ran out of it when we asked for more. This was a special occasion dinner and it didn't ruin the special occasion, but it could have been more special.... Our waiter seemed distracted and bored and uninterested.
