It’s right on the waterfront, but it’s the oysters and seafood that will grab your attention here more than the view (which actually isn’t all that great). Elliott’s is one of the most trustworthy lunch and dinner dining spots along Seattle’s fish-and-chips-oriented waterfront. I happen to love fresh Northwest oysters, and I love the vast selection available at Elliott’s oyster bar. Sample them the way you might sample wine—each variety has a different size, shape, texture, and taste. If you’re an oystermaniac, come during Elliott’s oyster happy hour when these briny bivalves cost just $1.50–$2 each. Other Northwest staples like salmon and Dungeness crab are on the menu, but it’s really the oysters that shine at Elliott’s.
