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.

"short wait time due to reservation, food was good, a little more grease than in the past and the price was a little high for what we ordered, but overall we had a great time, and we will be back soon."

"We went to Ivars for a special work lunch to treat our Administrative Professionals. The ambiance and food was very good. We had everything from salmon to fish and chips to salads and everyone enjoyed their meals and the experience. We really liked the remodel too."

"Went here on a Friday night to celebrate with my husband. Sadly the service was horrible. Our server seemed like he must've had too many tables spread between the dinning room and bar. Not sure why as there seemed to be plenty of servers milling around. It took 15 minutes just to order a drink. Once we had our drinks we could tell the service was not going to improve so we decided to just stay for drinks and appetizers. Our server didn't come back for 20 minutes, we nixed the appetizers and asked for the check so we could go elsewhere and order food. After another 20 min passed by we finally grabbed a random server and asked if they could run our card so we could leave.
Needless to say, it was an hour experience where all we were able to order was two beers because we couldn't get anyone to serve us. Will not be returning.

"After hearing about the remodel that took place during the sea wall reconstruction (remodel=9 months/seawall=2 years and counting. . .) I thought it would be fun to see what they've done with the old place. It was fun! The food was great, great views, accommodated a large group that grew, let us bring our own cake . . . not a bargain but worth it for a special occasion and out of town guests."

"We enjoyed Ivars as a late night waterfront restaurant while visiting Seattle.
The food was excellent ( we enjoyed some Pacific oysters and a delicious salmon special).
The service was also excellent although we benefited from dining later in the evening after the peak dining hour.
Best of all, we dined on a Tuesday which was half priced wine night (50% off most bottles). There's another half priced wine night as well( call to check).
Ivars is directly across from the ferry terminal. Being at window and watching the brightly lit ferries come and go added a very pleasant atmosphere."

"I ordered the Fish and Chips and it was delicious and not too greasy. My girlfriend ordered the Prawns and Chips. Both entrees were delicious and the food was delivered promptly. Our waiter was very nice and accommodating. The noise level wasn't too bad even though we were sitting near a large party. All-in-all I would definitely go back!"

"The location is ideal on a sunny evening -- Elliott Bay, the Olympics, sunset -- hard to beat. But on this sunny April night, perhaps the restaurant wasn't prepared for the crowd. Service was very slow (the server did comp our appetizer, without us asking, since it took 30 minutes -- that was appreciated). But everything took a looooong time, especially drink orders (c'mon people, it's a hot day and we need our drinks!) even though we just got wine, no mixed drinks. The calamari was good, but my mussels did not seem super fresh and could have been more flavorful. My friend said his blackened salmon caesar was good. I would go back for the view, but maybe just eat in the bar for happy hour since our bill for mussels, salad and drinks was $100+."

"Nice for a weekday lunch--not too busy, food came fairly quickly. The view is incredible and the outdoor deck is the perfect spot to enjoy a sunny day. The fried seafood is a little greasier than I would normally prefer, but they cook their seafood lots of different ways, so it's easy to find something fresh cooked the way you like."

"We went for Easter brunch having had a very nice brunch previously at the Salmon House location. We were disappointed. The selection was more limited and the food quality not as good. The fish entree choices and other hot food were cold, some trays were not refilled often, there were only two salads, and the crab was placed at the end of a row causing long lines to back up blocking the other dishes. There were also delays wih things like water and coffee refills and we saw other tables having the same challenges."

"I would highly recommend Ivars. We went there for Easter Brunch and we are definitely making this a tradition. Incredible food, and a beautiful view. The staff was a little slow, but there were a ton of people there. All in all awesome."

"Ivar's is the place for Easter brunch with the fam damily - two words: Dungeness Crab (and lots of it - woohoo)
Prime rib, omelet bar, $5 killer bloody mary's, oysters, shrimp, crab, clam chowder (don't pass it up) even the biscuits & gravy were off the hook.
$45 a plate is a fair price considering Ivar's is a no tip restaurant (they specifically tell you a tip is not expected - we threw one out anyway, but nice to know that it is optional)
Place has been remodeled since the last time we were there and it looks great - killer views of the sound, the Olympics and the Ferry traffic from just about anywhere in the restaurant - we generally stay away from the waterfront for dining to avoid the tourists, but Ivar's is a Seattle icon and a great place for locals to go on Easter as the tourist traffic is at the lowest ebb. - that said, food was so good and the place so nice, we'll be heading down there again for a date night in the near future.
Nice job Ivar's!!!!!!!!!!!"
