Quick bite by the pier

We are taking a cruise to Alaska and was looking for some good food before we get on the boat. Any suggestions for places by the pier? Thanks

    your alaska cruise may depart from any of three port of seattle piers - duwamish, belltown or interbay - and the answer to your query will vary widely in accordance

        That's the pier at Bell Harbor Conference Center. It's the more northern end of the Elliott Bay waterfront.

        There's an Anthony's right there, which is a local seafood chain.

        Within walking distance (both to the north) would also be 6/7 at the Edgewater (I've never eaten there before, but there have been recent reviews) as well as the Waterfront Grill, which I really enjoy. The deck is fabulous and they have a really great happy hour. Dinner is more special occasion oriented, but I've found their food to be consistently good (albeit not particularly original).

          for quick and casual, I like fish and chips at Steamers, which is an easy walk (near the Argosy dock). it's walk up and you sit outside and watch the people and boats. they also have good steamers.

      Anthony's, listed below, is right next to the cruise ship terminal. It is casual downstairs, upstairs is a little more upscale. Good food either way.

      The 67 Restaurant at the Edgewater Hotel (pier 67) has great food and service. If you want a nice quiet place, away from the crowd, this is the place.

      The Waterfront Restaurant is great, if it's sunny and warm go there and sit outside.

      If you want to spend a lot of money and feed the ego of a national celebrity chef go across the street to the Fish Club.

      Hope you have a great trip.

        Thanks I think we will try one of the places you mentioned. Probably Anthony's. Any recommendations?

        Elliott's Oyster House has Oyser Happy Hour from 3:00.
        At 3:00, oysters are 50 cents.
        They go up 20 cents or so every half-hour, or was it 30 cents every 30 minutes?
        Something like that, anyway, and besst go at 3:00 and order up a few dozen.

          Sounds good but the ship leaves at 4pm
