Ivar’s is a famous seafood restaurant chain based in Seattle. They are the ones who has been sponsoring the 4th of July fireworks in Seattle every year since 1964.
Ivar’s own a few nice waterfront seafood restaurants in Seattle. They also have about 30 Ivar’s Seafood Bars around Washington state. There was one in Aurora nearby our hotel and decided to check that out for dinner.
We had no idea how their fish and chips is like. I thought that it would be the ones I had in London – big piece about 8″ long. So, we ordered the 3-piece fish and chip. The fish (Pacific Cod) were nowhere the size I thought. The batter was perfectly light and most importantly, not too greasy.
We also ordered the Shrimp and Chips. The shrimps were fresh and springy. Six pieces of shrimps. Very nice — we like it.
We also ordered the Summer Slam. Basically, it is three types of fishes and chips — salmon, halibut and cod.
The quality of the seafood was good. Enjoyed it a lot but the servings were smaller than what we expected. However, they do know how to do it right. The entire bill came up to $25, including drinks.
Ivar’s is an absolute must for tourists. So, if you’re Seattle, you should try one of their restaurants or seafood bar.
