Happy Hour at Ivar's Acres of Clams

Yesterday was a perfect July day so my husband and I decided to head over to the Seattle Waterfront and fight the tourists for a bite to eat and a spin on the new Seattle Great Wheel.  I just wanted a glass of red wine and an appetizer so I chose Happy Hour at Ivar's.  I've eaten at the walk up Ivar's many times.  I remember as a kid, throwing french fries to the seagulls and watching them as they caught the fries in their mouths.  But I've only eaten inside the restaurant a couple of times and never checked out their Happy Hour.  With it being a Saturday night, the place was packed so we walked past the hostess desk right to the full bar where we managed to find two seats.  We each ordered a glass of wine and I ate the Smoked Salmon Plate.  My husband had the Cheeseburger and Fries. 



My glass of Cabernet Sauvignon, a 14 Hands '10 from the Columbia Valley.
The Smoked Salmon Plate I ate.  It had a whipped lemon mascarpone cheese, pickled red pepper jam and served with three crostini. 
My husbands' burger and fries.  I love their fries.  I won't lie, I had a few. 
The good tables in the dining room look out towards Elliot Bay and the Ferries.

After eating dinner, we headed over to the Seattle Great Wheel and got in line for our ride above the city and Elliot Bay.  We decided to skip dessert but planned on sharing an ice cream cone after the Ferris Wheel. Ivar's Acres of Clams on Urbanspoon
