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.

Good quality seafood but surprised that fish was plated with not a single leaf of lettuce or side dish!

Love love Rock Creek. Top 5 favorite restaurants in Seattle & we ALWAYS make a point to come here when in town. Service was a little underwhelming this time- not much help & server didn’t seem interested in going above his usual “job”. Not bad by any means but not our usual vibe from the staff here. The food was, as always, EXQUISITE so hats off to the kitchen!!!

We've tried to get into RockCreek on short notice in the past and had been to the bar but had never been in for a meal. We're very pleased we a made a reservation as we really enjoyed the food, the service and the overall atmosphere. Highly recommended.

Food was delicious and service was fantastic. Craft cocktails were beautifully presented. It was my moms bday and both parents’ first time in Seattle. RockCreek was a great PNW seafood experience. Highly recommend this restaurant. (And get the stew)

Repeat customer based on recent positive experience at same restaurant. Arrived early for an early dinner reservation, no other customers around, all tables empty. Hostess took us to the worst possible table, one next to bathroom and crowded up against bus/waiter station being restocked for the night. Rest of staff made up for the hostess’s poor judgement with an otherwise excellent meal. Highly recommended.

Service was amazing and the food was great. We came with a baby and The staff was super accommodating. Our daughter was a little fussy for some reason that night and they had a children’s finger puppet book that they let her play with to keep her occupied. That was really nice of them and our server interacted with our baby making our dinner a lot smoother. Food was quick and everything tasted great. Only complaint was the lamb ragout was salty. Loved the ambience and decor of the joint

We were visiting from Chicago, and it was exactly what we were looking for in terms of fresh and modern seafood cuisine. Everything was delicious, which special nods to the oysters, cauliflower salad and lemon curd dessert.

We visited RockCreek to celebrate our third wedding anniversary. We had a fabulous meal and will definitely return. The sourdough and herb butter was a great way to start. We shared the Manila Bay clams small plate, which was delicious. For entrees, we had the Baja Yellowtail and Blackened Hawaiian Opah - both were fantastic. The cocktails were great too. Service was very good. Overall just a great experience, we'll definitely return.

Best food in Seattle by far. Consistently fabulous and no other restaurant in the city can brag everyone of their desserts are awesome. Have to have the cauliflower salad- it's a must. In fact we have never had one item that was marginal. RARE find.

Our 1st time here and it was awesome. We had the Black Bay Cod and it was exactly as advertised- melts in your mouth. Had the cauliflower and it was awesome as well. The vibe was really good - cannot over recommend this restaurant.

The drink list was innovative and refreshing. The wine list was broad with great pricing, thanks! There were three of us and we ordered many items and shared. Wow! That's the way to do it right! And we ended with a trio of desserts that were fantastic. We'll be back, for sure.

Seattle may be a foodie city, but it isn't a service city. The disappointing service at RockCreek was no exception to this observation. The order was wrong - twice. Appetizer never came. Then, the wrong dessert came. We were dining at 8:45 pm on a Sunday, so perhaps the wait staff was ready to go home, but that isn't a good excuse. Food was good, though they had run out of many items (the sign of freshness, I would think). But, service was lacking.

Enjoyed our meal. The wait staff were personable & good, food was excellent. We had a problem with our table (people next to us wearing very strong perfume or cologne, couldn't stand it, we were upstairs in a corner with poor airflow), the hostess at front seemed a bit put out to have to move us, but she did. I ordered a few small plates as my dinner, my husband ordered an entree. The small plates came out one at a time, as if they were appetizers, and then finally his entree (which seemed to take a very long time). All of the food was topnotch and we didn't mind the wait once we were sitting at an outside table with less noise and fresh air!

Had friends visiting from the east coast and wanted to show off the wonderful fish of the PNW. Our server was helpful with recommendations and provided friendly, efficient service. We started out with an assortment of oysters, which, sadly, I felt weren't chilled enough. They were okay, but didn't wow any of us.
We shared several small plates, enjoying amazingly tender and tasty grilled octopus, delicious shrimp and grits, and tomato sauced mussels that were great. That really would have been enough food, but we had ordered on large plate to share, the grilled branzino. It was tender and moist, and if you ate the top crispy skin, displayed some nice seasonings. Without that exterior skin, though, it would have benefitted from a touch of lemon or a gentle sauce or aioli to add a bit of interest.
Overall, we had a very good meal and a lovely evening, despite a few minor disappointments.

Everything we got was exceptional. The oysters on the half shell were delicious. The fish dishes are amazing but the lamb dish was extremely impressive. Great wine, food and vibes!

Great dining experience with excellent service!! The only thing negative was it was a bit warm in the restaurant. We were seated on the second floor, which was great because it was quieter outstanding!! I had the tuna crudo, a friend had a salad, another friend, the oysters Brockerfeller all excellent!! My friend too much for one person. The cake was a little lighter & refreshing because of the lemon curd.

The food is very good, but they are not very accommodating in terms of allergy modifications. They don’t allow substitutions and their sauces are all pre-made. This was surprising for a nice restaurant.

I’ve been in Seattle twice over the last two years and have made sure to go to RockCreek both times. It’s one of the best seafood restaurants in America. The mussels bruschetta and black cod are amazing dishes. Just stellar food with a comfortable, unpretentious vibe. Thanks for always making me feel like a regular.
