Since opening in 1975, Elliott’s Oyster House has delighted taste buds with impeccably fresh seafood. Through the years, we’ve earned a national reputation for our seafood specialties: sustainable Dungeness crab, wild salmon from thriving runs, Alaskan halibut, and Pacific Northwest shellfish—including our star attraction, oysters. Our restaurant has been recognized by Tom Horan’s Top 10 Club, FORTUNE, USA Today, Gourmet, Wine Spectator, and Seattle Magazine.
Sustainability is particularly important to us. So Elliott’s works with local oyster growers and fishery partners who share our commitment to preserving the planet.

Originally known as the Elliott Bay Fish and Oyster Company, our landmark restaurant has resided on Pier 56 from the beginning. This vibrant waterfront location is the ideal spot to slurp an oyster, savor one of our signature entrée, or relax on the deck with a Happy Hour cocktail.
Our historic home.
Pier 56 started out as Arlington Dock in the late 1800s. Built and owned by a retired ship captain, the dock was destroyed in the Great Seattle Fire of 1889. Then in 1902, the Northern Pacific Railroad came along and constructed three new piers—which included Pier 5 (now 56)—to capitalize on the gold rush. The U.S. government renumbered all the piers at the start of World War II.
Pier 56 made headlines in 1965 when Ted Griffin, owner of the Seattle Marine Aquarium, bought and displayed Namu—a 22-foot orca whale. (Today, orcas are protected from capture in the U.S.)
