Chinook's at Salmon Bay Restaurant Review: Guests look out over Fishermen's Terminal and boats of the Alaskan fishing fleet from floor-to-ceiling windows as they dine on seafood favorites. The piers bustle with activity in daytime, and at night, even the fishermen slow down and head for Chinook's. The menu offers Northwest-inspired dishes such as salmon or halibut tacos and crab cakes with ginger-plum sauce. Steaming bowls of clam chowder (Manhattan and Boston are both available) or crab-filled gumbo are favorite starters. Anyone not interested in seafood may enjoy a selection of burgers, chicken, and the seven-ounce sirloin steak. The fresh sheet lists the day’s catch and always includes a bargain Blue Plate Special, which is where we recommend spending your hard-earned cash. On weekends, choose the satisfying Fisherman’s Breakfast (be sure to order the scones), and on Monday nights, all-you-can-eat fish ‘n’ chips is the lure. The oysters are good anytime and we order them at the bar while hoisting a local brew. There's a full bar with a wine list featuring Northwest varietals. To top things off, share a signature seasonal berry cobbler. In summertime, Chinook's patio is an ideal spot for dinner.
