Yummy but a little over-priced seafood place. Don't miss the Happy Hour menu. That's what we picked and chose from primarily; really great prices for a lot of food.

This is the place for you if you want great seafood at a good price. This is basically the same food as the sit down restaurant but no fancy trappings. There is a place to sit, just no tablecloth or waitstaff.

Check out our Pier 54 Fish Bar, which offers take-out service of Ivar's classics including award-wining fish ‘n chips, chowder and other seafood favorites. As part of the local lore, feel free to feed a few fries to the seagulls. It’s a photo opportunity worth sharing!
