As of July 1st, Ivar’s original Acres of Clams is happy to unveil one whale of a transformation at our flagship location on Pier 54, located along the historic Seattle Waterfront and overlooking Elliott Bay.
Ivar’s Acres of Clams just completed a stunning remodel, the biggest in its 77-year storied history. The down-to-the-studs remodel includes expanded indoor dining space, a new massive outdoor patio, expanded state-of-the-art kitchen and a completely refreshed interior that still pays homage to our iconic restaurant’s roots.
Upon entering Ivar’s Acres of Clams you will be immersed in the history and lore of Ivar’s and our flounder Ivar’s Haglund. We restored many of the original features of the Pier, which opened in 1901, including exposed fir beams and a refurbish Galbraith-Bacon & Co sign from the original tenant (some say the Seattle Costco of its time). With a more airy feel and open windows, diners will enjoy views of the Puget Sound, passing Washington State ferries and fireboats from historic Fire Station #3. If you prefer al fresco dining, enjoy a stunning, new outside patio deck complete with fireplaces built from reclaimed wood from the original restaurant. Bask in the open-air breeze while taking in the sights and sounds of Elliott Bay, including the tranquil passing of ferries – and the occasional seagull friend.
