McCormick’s Fish House & Bar

Steak in Downtown, Pike Place & Waterfront

A mainstay of traditional Seattle dining and the flagship of a small Northwest chain, this classy, wood-lined place is a network of cubbyholes that looks like an old boys club (it was built as a hotel in 1927). The food is consistently good, with daily fresh-fish specials (mostly grilled with zesty sauces) and a fine selection of local oysters, chops and steak.
