In Seattle for 4 days, Need Recs for Dowtown Seafood

I'm in Seattle Mon - Thurs staying at Sheraton downtown on 6th Ave. I am a seafood lover and that's all I want to eat while I'm here - lunch and dinner! I get 75 minutes for lunch, so I'll need recs that are within walking distance or a short cab away. And for dinner would like to stay downtown,

I don't need anything fancy, love hole-in-the-walls and will probably do a combo of takeout and sitdown since I'm on my own. Love oyster, fresh fish, crab and will do a yummy fish fry once or twice if it's worth the heartrisk and calories!

My first visit to Seattle and want some delicious eating memories!

Thanks foodies :)

  1. The Brooklyn would do nicely for you. Good seafood. Elliott's for oysters.

    1. for seafood downtown, you cannot do better than blueacre seafood (7th/olive) though, on a good day, etta's seafood (pike place market) runs a close second. jack's fishspot (also in the market) is reopened and serving excellent fish'n'chips during daylight hours. the best seafood in town is the downstairs dining room at ray's boathouse (shilsole marina), a rather long cab ride but well worth the effort

      1. Blue Acre specializes in seafood and is nearby. Anthony's has good fish and chips at their fish & chips bar by the waterfront. Don't recommend their fancy restaurant, however. Elliott's on the waterfront is good for oysters. Catch the ride free bus in the tunnel during the day and head on down to the ID for fresh crab out of the tank, prepared Chinese style. Sea Garden is one option--their black bean clams are good too. You will need another person to do the crab--too much for one. The better seafood places, in my opinion, are not downtown

        Sea Garden
        509 7th Ave S, Seattle, WA 98104

        1. for fish n chips downtown, Jack's Fish Spot, or Steamers on the Waterfront. Touristy but good. I also love the Lockspot at the Locks. Will need a cab but everyone should visit the Locks. Salmon with corn bread pudding at Etta's--a classic. Flying Fish, cab ride away, and totally great food. Probably my favorite for pure seafood.

          Flying Fish
          2234 1st Avenue, Seattle, WA 98121

          Jack's Fish Spot

          Lockspot Cafe
          3005 NW 54th St, Seattle, WA 98107

          1. Where Ya At Matt [it's a truck] would be good for lunch. The oyster po boy is worth seeking out. On Wednesday lunch they are at the South Lake Union,Cascade Peoples Center, 309 Pontius Ave N, 98109.
