Schiller's Favorite Oyster Bars and Seafood Places in Seattle, Washington State, USA - An Update
I am not that frequently in Seattle, but from time to time I am. I already issued a posting about Schiller's Favorite Wine Bars in Seattle: Schiller’s Favorite Wine Bars in Seattle, USA - An Update
Here are my favorite oyster bars and other seafood places in Seattle. The list is a mixture of own experiences, recommendations by others and finds in the internet that I still have to check out.
Schiller's Favorite Oyster Bars and Seafood Places in Seattle
Taylor Shellfish on Melrose Market
1521 Melrose Ave. (Capitol Hill)
“We liken ourselves to a Shellfish Deli. Groceries to go, Oysters on the half shell in house. Tables a first come, first service. Happy hours on weekdays offer half shell oysters at a discount.
Taylor Shellfish in Lower Queen Anne
124 Republican St
Between N Warren Ave & N 1st Ave
Taylor Shellfish at Pioneer Square
410 Occidental Ave S
b/t King St & Jackson St
1212 2nd Avenue
The epitome of a classic, old-school steak and seafood house. The Brooklyn has stood the test of time attracting business folk from the financial district with its martinis, oyster happy hour and big ol' steaks and salmon filets. The Brooklyn wears its checkered floor and copper worn-torn bar as a badge of courage. If you’ve already got your tie on, and your seats are saved across the street at Benaroya Hall, The Brooklyn’s cheap drinks and snacks are on your radar.
Elliots Oyster Bar
1201 Alaskan Way Pier 56
One of the top oyster places in the USA, if not the best. The selection of oysters (2 to 3 dozens) is outstanding, with a focus on West Coast Oysters. Other top pics include king crabs, wild salmon and Dungeness crab cakes. Interesting wine list.
Elliott’s happy hour runs from 3pm-6pm every Monday-Friday. The best deal in the house are the freshly shucked oysters on the half-shell. The earlier you get to Elliott’s the better. That’s because it’s a ‘progressive’ oyster happy hour. Oysters are just $.75 apiece from 3pm-4pm, $1.25 each from 4pm-5pm, and then $1.75 each from 5pm-6pm.
Anthony's Pier 66
2201 Alaskan Way Pier 66
Anthony’s Restaurants is a family of unique restaurants located throughout the Pacific Northwest. Our locally owned company traces its history to 1969 when founder, Budd Gould opened his first restaurant in Bellevue, Washington.
Ivar’s Acres of Clams
1001 Alaskan Way Pier 54
Ivar’s Original Acres of Clams at Pier 54 has been a beloved Seattle tradition since 1938. The original recipie for its well known Clam Cowder was seveloped in 1938. Below average wine list.
A Pike Market institution - rustic atmosphere overlooking the water. In the early 1900′s Lowell’s was a combination of coffee roaster, peanut roaster and cafeteria that served the citizens of the Seattle when they visited the Pike Market to purchase fresh farm produce, seafood and dairy goods. The “flagship” Manning’s Cafeteria, then became Lowell’s in 1957, and has remained so ever since. On the first and third floors, you order first with the cashier/barista and then find a view seat and your food will follow you shortly. Opens at 7:00 am.
Pike Place Market insiders and tourists alike frequent this “funky” institution (which started as a bakery in 1909) for its “affordable”, “genuine taste” of “old blue-collar Seattle” American breakfasts and seafood, served by “colorful” staffers in an “unmatched” spot to “watch the market wake up”; there’s no dinner, but the second-floor booths have “wonderful views” of “ships and ferries coming and going” in Elliott Bay.
The Walrus and the Carpenter (Ballard)
4743 Ballard Avenue
Oyster chic and small plate stand-outs. No one had yet created as perfect a frame for Puget Sound bivalves as Renee Erickson (along with co-owners Jeremy Price and Chad Dale) has with The Walrus and the Carpenter, where the oysters are gathered by the bushel into icy wire baskets on the bar. Light and airy, with a hint of midcentury French industry, the Walrus is a raucous gathering place, a cocktail joint par excellence and a place to down local oysters like you’ve never done before.
6049 Seaview Ave NW (Ballard)
Famous German winemaker Ernst Loosen, Weingut Dr. Loosen, went there with his crew, the night before the 4th Riesling Rendezvous.
