Ivar's Acres of Clams (Downtown)
Pier 54, 1001 Alaskan Way
Seattle, WA 98104
Old-timey jaunty-cap-wearer Ivar Haglund lives on as a local legend, and rightfully so—he once staged an octopus prizefight, and when a thousand gallons of syrup spilled on the waterfront, he made pancakes at his Acres of Clams. The restaurant lives on as a local institution—inside, you'll find just-okay seafood in a family-friendly sit-down format, while outside, there's a walk-up fish-'n'-chips bar with outdoor seating. Both have great views; you'll get much, much more for your money at the sidewalk stand (including excitingly aggressive seagulls). Keep clam!
