Dropped in for a before the game for a quicky in the bar. Surroundings and food were fine but, happy hour menu was misleading. When bill came, 20% tip was added, even to the parking fee. Place was empty, and one could understand why! Why do former good places try to nick there customers a little extra?

We ate here last year and had an excellent meal with good service. The service this time was a bit hit & miss and while the food was OK it wasn't anything special. It was also very quiet for a Friday evening.

We dropped by for lunch and were treated to great views and very generous portions of seafood on our salads, I had the crab and bay shrimp louie salad, and my husband had the seafood Caesar. Both were very good. Our server Trina was friendly. I think the hostess should have asked if we wanted sun or shade. I noticed... More

Hosted three couples for lunch last week on a picture perfect day and all were impressed with the view and the food at this seafood restaurant. It was pricey for lunch but all was good - dungeness crab, fish and chips, sea bass, mussels as well as the desserts - Key Lime Pie and Banana Cream Pie. Particularly good was... More

My husband and I love this place. Very northwest and upscale, without breaking the bank. The seafood is perfection.

The location, views, big fat live crabs in a tank and ambience will make you salivate for a special experience when you arrive at this restaurant. Our experience was dreadfully disappointing from the beginning of our arrival until the end. We had a reservation that was made in advance, yet we were asked to wait for awhile, even though the...

Worth the price but still pricey. Be prepared for a high bill. Great wait staff and amazing crab! Try the crab soup.

We enjoyed our visit to Chandlers. The view was really nice, with outside seating. Service was superb. The list of specials was varied. Somehow the food, though mostly fresh seafood prepared nicely and presented nicely, was a bit underwhelming. Don't get me wrong, it was good. Just not THAT good. And I would recommend the restaurant if you are not... More

Short walking distance from our hotel so it was a go to for seafood. We were not disappointed. Everything our group had was outstanding. A bit pricey but we were on the water at an upscale Seattle restaurant so its to be expected. Location is great since its right on the water at Lake Union and walking distance of the... More
