THIS RESTAURANT IS TEMPORARILY CLOSED Ivar's Acres of Clams Restaurant Review: THIS RESTAURANT IS TEMPORARILY CLOSED FROM SEPTEMBER 29, 2014, TO JUNE 30, 2015. Ivar's Acres of Clams is the first outpost of the Ivar’s dining empire. Over the decades, it has remained a destination where locals and tourists alike head to enjoy classic Northwest fare with panoramic Lake Union 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 mussels in a coconut curry broth and a respectable saffron-accented bouillabaisse loaded with shellfish, salmon and halibut. Don't forget the clams --- acres of 'em! Those who do not choose fish can savor the pork porterhouse with apple-orange beurre blanc or the grilled orange chicken with cranberry plum sauce. The lavish Sunday Brunch is a crowd-pleaser.
