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.

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!

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.

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!

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.

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 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.

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.

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.
