Seafood
Shaker & Spear is all about seafood paired with fresh, regional ingredients. We invite you to enjoy dishes and drinks in a neighborly atmosphere set among one of Seattle's coolest neighborhoods, Belltown. Helmed by Chef Carolynn Spence, Shaker + Spear features market fresh and decidedly innovative fare focused on local sourcing and sustainable fishing. Shaker + Spear is a restaurant favorite of visitors seeking a respite from a busy day of shopping at nearby Pike Place Market or walking along the Puget Sound. A nightcap at the adjacent Pennyroyal bar satisfies both parties nightly until 12am.

Everything was great from when we were seated to when we checked out. The oysters were good but the cocktails were better and the servers were the best! I would love to go back.

Our server/ bartender (Josh from Miami) was knowledgeable and provided great insight about the menu. He really made an effort to ensure we had a good experience. We will definitely return.

My experience at Shaker + Spear was phenomenal.

We originally had to wait for our reserved seats as Covid was preventing them to use all of their space for service, and people were taking their time dining (I could see why after I ate here!). Because we had to wait, the host gave us free cocktails of our choice and asked if we needed anything else.

When we got to our table, the waiter was very helpful in ordering dishes and drinks, and the staff was extremely friendly addressing my buddy's birthday. Manager ended up coming out and providing drinks and a bottle to celebrate with, giving us his card to use if we wanted to come back.

Incredible experience and fantastic food and drinks. 1000% recommend.

One of our best Seattle dining experiences ever, and certainly in the COVID era. From the crispy sesame peanut shrimp appetizer (delicious!) to the Pot o créme butterscotch dessert, the food, atmosphere, service (thanks Ryan, you're the best!), physical separation of tables and ventilation were all primo!

Good food for a nice dinner out without breaking the bank. Good seafood options and good side options that aren't just your run of the mill fries and broccoli. Nice place but you don't need to dress up. Great service!

This was our 2nd time back within a week and this time we brought along two others from our Covid-bubble. We didn't realize there were three levels of seating. All staff made us feel welcome and super safe. It was great to return and try entirely different drinks, appetizers, and entrees. This place has become a new favorite!

We had a Saturday Brunch and asked for Outside seating. We were out on the sidewalks of Seattle. It was great food and due to our 2020 situation the service was great. I think a heat lamp would have been nice.

Absolutely incredible food. I've never been able to cut an octopus leg without significant effort but this was like butter. Flavor was amazing and the same went for all of the other food. Well worth every penny.

I normally don’t leave written reviews (rating simply by stars is easier ha!) but I had to for this place. I’m surprised it took us so long to come here! Now that we have, we’ll definitely be back. Drinks, apps, food, and dessert were all amazing. The vibe is great. Staff are truly great (Ryan!). The cherry on top was coming here during COVID and having a sense of normalcy in both service and ambiance (even with safety precautions in place). Definitely recommend you come here for date night!

Overall a great experience. Food would have been 5 stars but the clam dish we got had these garlic chips that really didn’t go with the dish. Also due to supply issues they didn’t have pop overs. But that couldn’t be helped. Staff was great and the tables were well spaced out.

Had to travel to Seattle at a difficult time during COVID and not many restaurants were allowing for dine in. Shaker and Spear had set up a little “patio” on the sidewalk and it was a lovely warm evening. They did an excellent job with serving us out there and the food was great. The only downside was the street noise and “ambiance” but I’d definitely dine again and I’m sure once they can fully open their dine-in space it will be even better.

The food and service exceeded expectations. The bill astonished us, though. We are not cheap, it just didn't seem like a Nicoise should cost $28. Aside from the minor complaint, the experience and flavors were of the highest calibur.

It was a decent meal. The server was spectacular and the meal I had was decent, considering it wasn’t what I wanted.. the reason I ranked food as average is that the menu didn’t have much on it for a guy like me.

The ambiance with outdoor dining is horrible. We were parked in a seat next to a street sign literally right next to the road in the not-so-nice part of town.

We asked to go back inside and we sat in a so-so indoor dining location. It’s not spectacular, but it’s not horrible.
