7. Athenian Seafood Restaurant @AthenianSeattle -
Athenian has some great historical ties to Seattle since it opened in 1909. It is easy to see why the Athenian has been around so long, with great breakfast foods that are served all day long, to the excellent Famous Fishwish sandwich that everyone loves.
6. Japonessa Sushi @JaponessaSushi -
Asian cuisine tends to revolve around fish as a staple. Japonessa Sushi, recognizes this and with the available seafood in Seattle capitalizes on this availability. Love trying all the different and new sushi creations but our favorite at Japonessa is the coconut soup - truly out of this world.
5. Steelhead Diner @steelheaddiner -
Located in the historic Pike Place Market and Steelhead views of the market give you true unique Seattle experience. In addition to the great atmosphere, Steelhead Diner you have awesome seafood. Our favorite Steelhead's dish is the perfectly balanced Grilled Alaskan Halibut.
4. Chinook's @AnthonysRestsNW -
On the West Coast, New England Clam Chowder is almost never seen but Chinook's has best we have tasted this far west of Mississippi. Great views of the water but it's the amazing seafood dishes that keep the masses coming back. Our favorite at Chinook's is the Mahi fish tacos.
3. RockCreek Seafood & Spirits @RockCreekSea -
Perfect locals or Seattle tourist spot as RockCreek has everyone's fish classics plus a few innovative dishes that will put spin on old school Seafood favorites. Add in the great drinks and inside or outside atmosphere and RockCreek shows why their popularity continues to grow.
2. The Crab Pot @crabpotseattle -
Deadliest Catch has made Seattle famous for crab boats, but The Crab Pot Seafood restaurant shows it's the great food that keeps visors coming back. Obviously the star of the show is the CRAB, our favorite the King Crab legs (1 1/2 pounds crab and comes with red potatoes and Corn on the Cob).
1. Toulouse Petit @toulousepetit -
Cajun and Creole food has finally made its way to the top in Seattle. Toulouse is a restaurant that serves seafood how is it made in the Deep South of Louisiana. Even down to the Seafood Gumbo served at Toulouse, everything is going to have the Cajun feel and appeal to it.
