Seafood
Shaker & Spear is all about seafood paired with fresh, regional ingredients. We invite you to enjoy dishes and drinks in a neighborly atmosphere set among one of Seattle's coolest neighborhoods, Belltown. Helmed by Chef Carolynn Spence, Shaker + Spear features market fresh and decidedly innovative fare focused on local sourcing and sustainable fishing. Shaker + Spear is a restaurant favorite of visitors seeking a respite from a busy day of shopping at nearby Pike Place Market or walking along the Puget Sound. A nightcap at the adjacent Pennyroyal bar satisfies both parties nightly until 12am.

I normally don’t leave written reviews (rating simply by stars is easier ha!) but I had to for this place. I’m surprised it took us so long to come here! Now that we have, we’ll definitely be back. Drinks, apps, food, and dessert were all amazing. The vibe is great. Staff are truly great (Ryan!). The cherry on top was coming here during COVID and having a sense of normalcy in both service and ambiance (even with safety precautions in place). Definitely recommend you come here for date night!

Overall a great experience. Food would have been 5 stars but the clam dish we got had these garlic chips that really didn’t go with the dish. Also due to supply issues they didn’t have pop overs. But that couldn’t be helped. Staff was great and the tables were well spaced out.

Had to travel to Seattle at a difficult time during COVID and not many restaurants were allowing for dine in. Shaker and Spear had set up a little “patio” on the sidewalk and it was a lovely warm evening. They did an excellent job with serving us out there and the food was great. The only downside was the street noise and “ambiance” but I’d definitely dine again and I’m sure once they can fully open their dine-in space it will be even better.

The food and service exceeded expectations. The bill astonished us, though. We are not cheap, it just didn't seem like a Nicoise should cost $28. Aside from the minor complaint, the experience and flavors were of the highest calibur.

It was a decent meal. The server was spectacular and the meal I had was decent, considering it wasn’t what I wanted.. the reason I ranked food as average is that the menu didn’t have much on it for a guy like me.

The ambiance with outdoor dining is horrible. We were parked in a seat next to a street sign literally right next to the road in the not-so-nice part of town.

We asked to go back inside and we sat in a so-so indoor dining location. It’s not spectacular, but it’s not horrible.

This was my 4th time dining at Shaker + Spear since restaurants began reopening. Probably like most folks, I was excited to dine-out again; but, feeling cautious. I was happy to see staff taking the COVID threat seriously, and out of the handful of restaurants I've returned to - they are definitely the cream of the crop.

The menu is conveniently located in a QR code on the coaster and has some old favorites; but, definitely enough new ones to keep you coming back for more. I still haven't been able to get enough of the Warm Sunchoke Dip w/Sunflower Crackers, Sassy Shrimp, and the Lemon Roasted Rockfish. The Cast Iron Steelhead is a must for those Salmon lovers out there also - damn good!

Keep up the great work Shaker crew!

The Steelhead Salmon was maybe the best we’ve ever tasted, and the salad it was served on was very good too.

Ryan the manager is the most engaging and interesting restaurant employee that I can recall, and just talking with him made the evening even better. The other waiters and staff were friendly and professional too.

This was our anniversary dinner and my wife thought it was great.

This restaurant is run by an amazing team of people. Food and service were second to none, despite the fact that Seattle is struggling just to survive right now. We were made to feel more like family than customers and will definitely return! Don't miss an opportunity to sample their delicious offerings. If you are fortunate enough to have Karen take care of you, know that you are in the best hands possible!

Brunch was delicious, we had the Crab Cake Benedict and it was perfectly prepared, as well as the Bacon Cheeseburger with Onion Compote.
The Rosemary Popovers are a "must- have" during your visit!
Staff was professional and friendly. We will definitely return during our next Seattle trip.

We stayed in Seattle for four nights and dined here twice--it is that good. Lovely lighting and warm ambiance in a sophisticated open kitchen restaurant. Craft cocktails, good wine list, delicious seafood, friendly and knowledgeable and attentive service. The ginger Brussel sprouts with chilis were fantastic, scallop dish and clam/sausage/linguine dishes were outstanding, our non-seafood friend enjoyed the burger with truffle fries. Try the coconut panna cotta dessert--unusual and delicious.

We love Shaker + Spear for everything from casual gourmet dining to bringing out-of-town guests for a special evening. Our go to dish of Arctic Char has revolved out but last night we dined on an incredible Scallop dish — perhaps the freshest & most flavorful scallops we’ve enjoyed in our far flung travels. You can’t go wrong with a host of many other menu offerings. Robyn as a server has always been great (among several others we’ve come to know and appreciate), and we still marvel when we have the opportunity to watch and listen to her at the next table run through introductory remarks to first time diners. Chef Carolynn, orchestrating the entire operation from her post at the end of the kitchen counter, ensures you’ll feel well taken care of with creative cuisine difficult to replicate on one’s own. Go & Enjoy!
