My family enjoyed our meal at Chandler's, but I left feeling really ripped off by the prices. $36 for four stuffed prawns and a side salad/vegetable combo. $14 for a glass of wine. The bill came out to $73 per person, which included two alcoholic...More

We travel to Seattle 2 times a year, and we always make a point to stop here. The view is amazing and they tend to sell out fast. Make your reservation and enjoy the seafood!!!

Past experiences here have all been very good. But on New Years Eve 2017 it was the food that is bringing this rating down. Our server was outstanding despite a full house at 7:30PM. He was very informative, knowledgeable, professional and attentive with a smile...More
