Why did we dine here? – Elliott’s Oyster House is located on the waterfront, smack dab in the middle of different attractions we were visiting. They have their Oyster New Year event every year, leading to crowds of oyster fans from all over. You can also visit Taylor Shellfish Farms in Seattle to purchase a wide variety of local oysters.

Insider Tip – Be very selective with your ordering. Happy hour is a good time to come.

Cuisine – Seafood
Location – Seattle Downtown Waterfront
Opened – 1975

Service – Elliott’s Oyster House had lackluster service. The server didn’t come by very often.
Verdict – Elliott’s Oyster House is a great place to go for fresh oysters and salmon. This restaurant is right in the middle of all of the touristy waterfront venues. The aquarium is nearby as is the tour boats and Pike Place Market. There are probably cheaper and less touristy restaurants in Seattle that serve the similar cuisine.

Elliott’s Oyster House Signature Dishes – Oysters, salmon.

Elliott’s Oyster House Food Picks:

Elliots Oyster House Seattle local raw oysters

Oysters on the half shell are their specialty. They had almost 40 different varieties the day we went for lunch. Prices are not cheap but these oysters were fresh and awesome. With Oyster House in their name, we wouldn’t expect any less. The server could recite which canal or river each one was coming from.
Dabob Bay Oysters ($2.50 each)
Sunset Beach Oysters ($2.50 each)
Sister Point Oysters ($2.50 each)

Blue Pool Oysters ($3.25 each)
Totten Virginica Oysters ($3.50 each)
Stellar Bay Oysters ($3.25 each)

Clam Chowder ($2.50 Child) was a solid thick soup with lots of ingredients. A good choice here.

Elliots Oyster House Seattle grilled salmon

Salmon ($7.95 Child) They use only wild salmon from sustainable runs, no farmed salmon. This fish was fresh and excellent. Definitely focus on salmon here.

OK: (Order if you like this dish)
Alaskan Halibut & Chips ($19) Ale battered, panko breaded, horseradish coleslaw, fries. This was recommended by the server and proved to be just OK. A better bet is the salmon.

Cup Oyster Stew ($5) Local oysters, cream, bacon, shallots, Tabasco, croutons – Very creamy, moderate spicy, strong flavors, two large Oysters. We thought it would be a little thicker.

Pans: (We would not reorder these dishes)
None
