Service is always great at Tom Douglas restaurants. The booths are a great place for a business meeting without sacrificing culinary excellence. The garlic toast with ceasar salads is fabulous as are the ribs.

The food was fine, but not exceptional. One had chicken, she said it was okay, another had the fish stew, he said it was okay. Another got the 1/2 rack of ribs, it was a small half rack. No sides come with it, just the meat on a small dish. For the price, they should include at least one side. However, the oysters on the half shell were great as was the whole crab. I would go back to have a glass of wine and some oysters but not again for dinner. It's a limited menu and the prices are a bit high for what you get.

Meeting some out of town visitors who wanted to eat at Pike's Place Market. A bit away from the really crowded area, very approachable menu....how can you go wrong with dungeness crab, oyster stew, and king crab legs.

The food portions were not great, especially for Seattle Restaurant Week. The vegetarian spatzel I ordered was way too salty and there was just a ton of melted cheese on a very small amount of spatial and shrooms.

The waitress was super nice and accommodating, however.

My sisters and I were celebrating our birthdays. We had a great time. Food was fabulous. I had the dungeness crab and it was so sweet and fresh. We also had the rigatoni with crab and salmon dish. All were really good. Also oysters were dynamite. I'm going to steal their idea of grilling a lemon and using that over the oysters. Great flavor!! Service was also excellent, very pleasant and attentive.

Underwhelmed. Thought we'd try a Tom Douglas property. After checking out the menu in advance we thought Seabar would be a good choice given the events for the evening. Service was excellent, but food was okay - it definitely did not live up to the expectations.

We sat on the patio, so expected the norm in outdoor seating, but had a mix of pot and homeless smells coming by fairly often. Didn't ask to be reseated because it was busy - but didn't lead to a great dining experience.

Not not going to recommend, but not recommending it.

Willing to try a different Tom Douglas restaurant in the future.

We were seated promptly but the service was extremely disorganized and slow. The food was only so so. When we asked about the delay we were told it was a small kitchen and that they were busy. Others around us received food but we waited longer. They seemed short staffed and there were no apologies. The value seems to be lacking and with a 20% tip mandatory I guess what impetus would the server have to be friendly.

Found Seabar and really wanted it to be great. It was just lacking in taste of food - too salty by far, presentation and selection. The location is great - right above the waterfront and close to Pike's Market. Our server was friendly and very attentive. It wasn't horrible by any means but it was lacking.

My boyfriend and I came for the Dungeness crab fried egg sandwich on our quest to try all of the ones listed in Eater's list of best breakfast sandwiches in Seattle. We acknowledged the $19 price tag on the sandwich and were willing to indulge for a special treat. So, we ordered that as well as the bacon eggs Benedict to share, which was also $19.

I had the Benedict first, noticing that the Hollandaise sauce atop the eggs was broken but forging ahead. The poached egg on my half of the dish was slightly overcooked, the yolk mostly hard with the very center running. The bacon was really tasty, as was the english muffin, so overall the dish made for a good bite. The hash browns were also very good, perfectly crisp and buttery. The crab egg sandwich was only so-so. While there was a good portion of crab, the sandwich just needed some sort of bite to cut through the richness of the bread/crab/avocado/cheese combination. A hot sauce or even the lemony hollandaise would have done the trick.

All in all, I wouldn't go back to Seatown Seabar. The service was very good, but the food and ambiance were just so-so. Especially for the high price tag.

Too noisy, too casual for our liking

Seatown is probably a better place to go with kids--although the slow service might not make it suitable for children either. Food was adequate, but service made the whole experience lacking. Our waitress seemed untrained. And I seem to recall music that was a bit off-putting--maybe too loud for conversation. Two tables of 4 business people next to us came in and left within 10 minutes--no service and probably couldn't carry on a conversation. I wish we had left, also.

I would say we had an average experience. The food was good (I had the crab BLT) but not great. I would go back to this restaurant but would probably try a different restaurant first. I am not a fan of the automatic 20% service charge. I almost always tip 20% anyways but feel that an automatic 20% has an impact on the service.

This place was nothing more than a sports bar that serves seafood. No sides served with dinner, none to add either. Not sure why it would have 4 stars. . Much better places to go for the money. Service was mediocre at best and was too worried explaining why there was an automatic 20 percent instead of earning it.

I've been to Seabar at least twice now, and they continue to impress me. They were able to modify our reservation from 4 to 5 people with minimal delay, and their food is stellar. My friends loved the crab BLT and the seafood bowl (not sure of the name, but it had a smoked salmon jawbone, mussels, clams, and more in a tomato broth with bread). I have tried their salmon with lentils and curry, which was both healthy and flavorful. I have also tried their chicken with potatoes and asparagus, which sounds plain, but is actually incredibly delicious and my favorite dish that I have tried there.

This was our first trip to Seatown Seabar. We have eaten at 5+ other Tom Douglas restaurants. By comparison this one was OK. The food was good but not great. Our orders included both the chicken and lamb pot pie, Crab BLT, Salmon burger, and gnocchi with salmon. Our server was friendly and nice. The location is good if you are already close to Pike Place Market but I would not go out of my way to eat here. Especially when Etta's, also a Tom Douglas restaurant, is right next door. My food experience on past trips to Etta's was much better. Overall not bad and I'm glad we tried it but with all the other food options in the Market I probably won't return to this one.

I travel to Seattle for work every few months and ALWAYS come here for at least one meal. The breakfast and lunch menus are fantastic. I brought a co worker with me this time and he was thoroughly impressed with not only the food/menu but our service was on point. I'd recommend trying either their bloody Mary or Irish Coffee. For food, I'd recommend the breakfast sandwich or crab Benedict.. Make sure to get their homemade hash browns. The oysters are also extremely delicious. The view is unblocked and you can see the water clearly. I'll always come back!

Great atmosphere on the corner of Pike Place market. Food was amazing! Service was great! Definitely would go back and recommend to those considering! We had the Ahi Poke' and Chickent Roasted Pot Pie. The Ahi was one of the best dishes I have had.

I was glad we made reservations because there is not a lot of seating and seemed pretty popular with the walk in crowd.

Dinner for two with apps, main dish and drinks ran around $100.

After watching Layover with Anthony Bordain, this became a must try place. It did not disappoint. We headed over on a Saturday for breakfast-the location was perfect right across from the water and the ambiance was fabulous. What a great bar! We had the crab/egg sandwiches and my friend had the amazing banana french toast. Of course could not pass up the delicious bloody marys too! We had wonderful service, and the only thing I can say is that I wish we had dined on the patio since the day was an out of the ordinary blue sky Seattle day! We will definitely return on our next visit!!

We sat down and had to wait for the rest of our party. Service was slow at first - I think they might have been a bit short staffed. I had the eggs benedict with dungeons crab. Very good. My husband had the eggs benedict with bacon (regular kind). He did not like it very much - the bacon was too hard to enjoy with the egg and English muffin.
