Ivar's Acres of Clams Restaurant Review

: A waterfront destination and the original outpost of the Ivar's dining empire, Ivar's Acres of Clams has retained its status as where tourists head to enjoy classic Northwest fare with panoramic views. A daily fresh-sheet features a frequently changing selection of the catch of the day. Two favorites are Ivar's thick clam chowder and crisp fish ‘n’ chips. The menu also includes a mixed seafood grill, wild Alaska halibut and Alaska king crab legs, plus more complex dishes such as Northwest crab cakes and a respectable fennel-accented cioppino loaded with shellfish, salmon and halibut. Don't forget the clams --- acres of 'em! Those who do not choose fish can savor the basil marinated chicken with thyme jus.
