Anthony's Fish Bar

Located in the Central Terminal of the Seattle Airport, the view is not as beautiful as at Anthony's other locations, but the seafood stays pretty close to form. Stick to the basics like fish and chips and halibut tacos. They have a nice selection of local microbrews to get happy with. This also feels like a sit down restaurant, so if you need to kill some time in between flights, go here.

On our way to Hawaii, Keith and I had a decent six hour layover in Seattle. By the time we de-planed and settled with our luggage, we thought it was too risky to leave the airport to explore the city.  So we stayed in the terminal and adjusted our internal clocks to prepare us for the rest of our voyage.  Anthony's had two sections - a take away area on the right or a sit down restaurant on the left.  We sat in the restaurant and our server was patient as we settled at our table and studied the menu.  It was 11am local time, but around 2pm back home so we were starving.  We shared an appetizer of the pan fried oysters, which were creamy and lightly fried in a tempura like batter.  We also shared a bowl of clam chowder that had surprising bits of real bacon in it with red skin potatoes.  For my main meal I chose the Alaskan Cod Fish and Chips that came with a delightful Asian cole slaw packed with nice bits of ginger.  The fish itself was mild but the batter was undercooked and did not really stick to the fish, so I ended up peeling most of it off.  Keith ate the Blackened Halibut Tacos that came with a fruity salsa but not enough heat, so he added some hot sauce.  Overall, it was nice to be able to sit down and eat real food in an airport, but there was nothing above average about the fare.  At least I sampled some seafood during my short layover in the Pacific Northwest.
