Elliott’s Oyster House – Seattle

My brother just bought a house outside of Seattle, so of course the whole family had to visit to check out the new place. It is gorgeous, and is so close to the water. Well done Josh!

Since I had never been to Seattle, we headed down to the city one day to explore. As you know, my family trips tend to revolve around food, so of course we began our Seattle experience with lunch.

Elliott’s Oyster House is located on Pier 56 on Seattle’s waterfront, so you can imagine how good the seafood is!

I loved how each place is set with the assumption that you will order oysters. I mean, really, how can you not?!

While we were deciding which oysters to order, we were served delicious sourdough bread. It reminded me of San Francisco, the bread is that good!

My dad, an oyster connoisseur, ordered a round of Oysters Rockefeller for the table. They are served with fresh spinach, Pernod, bacon and hollandaise sauce, and arrived incredibly fresh. We loved them, and thought that the hollandaise sauce was a nice touch.

Josh ordered the classic Clam Chowder and Caesar Salad for his main course.

My mom ordered the Copper River Salmon Fritters, which have house-smoked Copper River Salmon mixed with peppers and onions, fried in a corn fritter batter and served with a tangy remoulade sauce.

She also ordered a cup of the Spicy Crab Chowder, and it was gone before I could try a bite!

I ordered the BEST dish of all. I chose the Pesto Salmon Sliders with a cup of Clam Chowder on the side. I swear, angels sang when I tried my first bite of those sliders!

After a wonderful lunch, we headed off to find the Space Needle!

Stay tuned for my next Seattle post to laugh about how I caught a fish (and not in the way you think!)

  1. Food looks great! Those sliders in particular! I’m a big oyster fan as well and want to visit Seattle soon, I’ll be sure to look up Elliot’s when I make it out.
