Looks like a fast-food place but it is definitely not fast food!! Salmon is always great as are all the other fish they offer. Grilled salmon dinner with rice pilaf and cold slaw is $11 and it's not a skimpy portion. I had the salmon...More

Myself, my guy and his parents ate at the one in Seattle in September 2011. All of us ordered the Clam Chowder and it was served with crackers. If you eat here the Clam Chowder is New England style and the best.
