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.

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.

Such a great dinner! The staff was incredibly knowledgeable about the menu and wine list, and they were very accommodating of my gluten intolerance. Everything we ate was fantastic. I wish we had room for dessert as they also looked delicious!

Recommended cauliflower salad was OK. Mussel Bruschetta was truly awesome, one of the best presentations of mussels I've head. Neah Bay Black Cod was great, as was the Fin and Shell Stew. They made an excellent bartender's choice old fashioned as well. All the fish was perfectly cooked, and service was very good.

RockCreek is among the best restaurants in Seattle if you are looking for fresh fish, well prepared and always tasty! The service is friendly and professional. Sometimes I have to ask for an alternate table to be able to hear conversation with a companion. Requests are always fulfilled without a problem. The restaurant has the feel of a neighborhood place, but I would recommend it to anyone even if you have to drive to get here.

Great rustic environment. I have some food restrictions, and our waiter / kitchen were extremely accommodating. Food was fresh, flavorful, and different enough to separate it from a “typical” seafood restaurant. While I did not have an alcoholic beverage, the bar menu was very impressive with a wide variety of wines, cocktails, and decent selection of beer. I would absolutely make a return trip.

Delicious food. We have had dinner at RockCreek twice over the last few years, and the food has been great each time. While the desserts were good, the starters, small plates, and entrees are the true standouts. We were slightly disappointed in the Icelandic char entree we split during our last visit, but only because it was on the small side (no sides came with it); otherwise, the char itself tasted fantastic and was perfectly cooked.

We were really excited about trying this restaurant but overall were disappointed. After being seated an individual filled our water, but after that point it took 20 minutes for someone to come to our table to ask if we would like wine and take our food order. The food was good, the appetizers were very tasty and the entrees were fresh but lacking flavor. Overall I would not go back. When the server did come she was friendly but the amount of time it took to have someone to even come order with servers and other restaurant leadership around made for an experience that would not make me return. They need to work on initial attention to tables after seated, as the table next to us had a similar experience.

Wonderful layering of flavors. The smelt app came on a layer of fabulous aioli. My entree of rockfish was perfectly prepared and accompanied by a superb combination of herbs and other tasty tidbits (capers, fennel...). An olive lover, I appreciated the medley of fennel marinated olives. Will definitely recommend and return. Thanks!

We had a lovely light dinner on the patio. The service is warm and professional and there was no pressure to order “big plates” even though we were taking up valuable real estate. The menu has a lot of variety but my go-to is the“Kari-Out” calamari dish; it is delicious with many layers of ingredients and flavors.
Don’t hestitste, go now!

The food is interesting and creative. But there is a consistent issue with service. There never seems to be enough staff on to take care of the volume of customers. A drink order went unfilled because the server was simply so busy that they forgot. I believe that the staff are doing their utmost, but they are simply spread too thin.

Every now and then a restaurant is able to pull together a perfect menu, creative cocktails, a vibrant atmosphere and great service. The fact that Rock Creek has been doing this consistently since it opened speaks volumes for its ownership and why this is my must visit restaurant whenever I’m in Seattle.

Fabulous food. Fish and shellfish are beautifully prepared, with delectable pairings of ingredients. Service was a bit spotty, perhaps an inexperienced server, but better training needed. He did a nice job of boning our fish, but left us to refill our own wine glasses throughout the meal. A minor but noticeable weak spot in an otherwise wonderful experience. Highly recommended.
