Ivar’s Salmon House: Seattle Restaurant With A View

Everywhere we looked we read recommendations for Ivar’s, claiming that they had the best clam chowder in the Seattle area. 

Ivar’s Salmon House is an award winning seafood restaurant with an amazing view of Seattle. Whether you choose to sit outside or inside, the views are spectacular. 

When our server arrived he greeted us with the most amazing muffins I have ever eaten. These cornbread muffins are completely delicate and served with a lavender butter.

We decided on the Seared Rare Ahi Tuna which comes in a spicy sesame red pepper crust, pickled ginger, wasabi, wakame salad, and fiery orange sauce.

We also decided to try their famous clam chowder and salmon chowder, after all… it’s what they are known for!

I have never seen a restaurant put so much thought into a kid’s menu before. To say Ivar’s kid’s menu was impressive would be an understatement.

I went with our servers recommended choice of the Alder Grilled Yakutat Sockeye Salmon.
