Ivar's Acres of Clams

Ivar’s Acres of Clams unveiled a whale of a transformation recently. The down-to-the-studs remodel includes expanded indoor dining space, a new outdoor patio, expanded state-of-the-art kitchen and a completely refreshed interior that still pays homage to its iconic roots.

Original features of the Pier including exposed fir beams and a refurbished Galbraith-Bacon & Co sign from the original tenant were restored. Enjoy expansive views of the Puget Sound, Washington State ferries and fireboats from historic Fire Station #3. If you prefer al fresco dining, enjoy a stunning, new outdoor patio. Bask in the open-air breeze while taking in the sights and sounds of Elliott Bay.

Our chefs create award-winning preparations to reflect the season’s bounty, yet still showcase Ivar Haglund’s world famous original recipes. Dine on wild Alaskan salmon, deep-water halibut, Alaskan King Crab, Dungeness Crab, jumbo prawns, manila clams, weathervane scallops just to name a few.

"We had a party of eight when we dined at Ivar's and everyone's food was excellent! The clam chowder was wonderfully prepared and my 12 year old daughter ate nearly my whole cup! We had a variety of food at our table including steak, King Crag Legs, Salmon, and some children's meals. Everyone was very satisfied with their food. The restaurant was nicely renovated and the dining room host was very happy to tell us all about Ivar's. The wine pairing on the menu was also appreciated. Will definitely dine here again if we ever make it back to Seattle!"

"Did not enjoy Ivar's as much as I anticipated. Reservation made, we showed up on time but were forced to wait for over 1/2 hour to be seated.
Food was not bad but not great either. Waitress seemed scattered and forgetful. There are too many really good restaurants in Seattle to ever think about coming back for a second try. Definitely a tourist spot.

"What a spacious, lovely place to meet with family and friends!
The food is good; the crab legs were so sweet and moist, my fish and chips were good but the chips on the cold side. The salmon was delicious and not dry.
I would recommend this location for the beautiful scenery alone.
The prices include the tip, so that is something you don't have to think about.
The service was good, at best.

"We eat here at least once every time we visit Seattle. Food is good. Very large portions.
Unfortunately, Ivar's no longer offers a buffet brunch on Sundays as we found out on our most recent trip. That being said, good to see you open again on Elliot Bay! We'll be back.

"We were not impressed. The food was very expensive and not that good. I expected a much better seafood meal. We were seated at a table that only one person faced the water. This was a very big room so there was no reason to seat someone at a table that looked like it was for overflow. The best part of the experience was the service. Our waitress was fantastic. I would pick another restaurant if I could do it over again. The airport restaurant had better food than this and less expensive. I don't have much good to say about this."

"We had a great time here on 1/18/16. Due to construction (both road and other) we had some hassles getting to the door, but it was worth it. The Seafood Cocktail was delicious, but the crab cakes were over-the-top wonderful; the best we've ever had. Lighter than usual, and very flavorful.
For an entree we had the Mixed Grill Trio; the salmon was a bit dry, but the halibut was tasty and the prawns were the star of the show - very flavorful. We finished up with their Midnight Chocolate Truffle Cake, a perfect finish to a flavorful meal.
Service was impeccable throughout.
Easily recommended."

"We had lunch at Ivar's on a Wednesday right before New Year's. The place was hopping! The waiting area was busy -- a reservation is advisable. There were lots of families, several large groups, and ordinary adult diners. All the kids within earshot were well behaved!
Foodwise, Ivar's does a nice job of offering many gluten-free items and giving enough ingredient information on the menu to steer around food sensitivities. Staff were attentive and helpful. Loved the "extra vegetables" option with the entree. We'll be back!

"We were fans of Ivar's prior to last year's renovations - great food, fun atmosphere, moderate prices. The renovation really cleaned up the restaurant interior. The food was as terrific as ever - I had the wild salmon and my spouse a steak. Both were prepared to perfection. We have always taken out of town guests to this 'local' spot and will continue to do so."

"The new Ivar's remodel is a major upgrade, but the usually top notch fish & chips and seafood was sub-par. Unfortunately, the service was even more disappointing. The new $15 an hour wage "no tipping expected" policy may be impacting the attitude of the wait staff. We'll have to give them a little time and another try, or stick with the Fish Bar outside."

"First visit since renovation and the dining experience is as always first rate with it only being enhanced by the newly renovated interior of one our favorite restaurants in Seattle. Besides flew the family in from Maine for the holidays and one of the first things was what night are we going to Ivars!"

"Our family had not been to Ivars since the remodel - which is GORGEOUS!
The ambiance was fantastic and the food was wonderful but it was our server that made our experience. A party of 10 (with an age range of 9 to 70) is not always the easiest, but James took amazing care of our group. We can't wait to come back.

"On our last trip to Ivar's, the food was very disappointing. The only good dish was the calamari we had as an appetizer. 2 of our party had the fish n chips, while the fish was 'ok' but the coleslaw had NO seasoning, it was a throw away side dish. The draper valley apple chicken, had no flavor of apples, it was a dry bbq piece of meat. The sweet potato hash was not cooked as well as it could have been, it should have been much more tender. I took it home and gave it to my chickens. For the price, everything at Ivar's should be amazing, we were very disappointed and likely won't go back."
