  • Wonderful selection of fresh seafood. Lots of varieties we could not get back home. Helpful staff. We were on a cruise and they explained how they could ship it home over nite FedEx in a cold pack box...  read more »

  • We expected lots of places we could dine in and have a nice seafood mean but really it was more of a seafood market where you buy to take home and cook. 
  • f smoked salmon was currency, this place would be Fort Knox! Far and away the best spot to come get your smoked salmon! Radness abounds as they'll let you sample the stuff they've got. Hands down the best in the market - they carry many a flavor (Alderwood smoked - hot and cold smoked, Terikayi, Jerky, and Garlic-pepper) and it is straight up to die for! The first time we came here, I found myself chewing longer, just because the flavor was so good. Today, the trend continues! The Alderwood smoked salmon has become our favorite. It keeps for around 3 days outside of a fridge (good for travelers) and for 2-4 weeks in your fridge at home. I can't overstate how good this stuff is. It gets to your mouth and a fiesta (or however fish celebrate) starts up. It melts in your mouth, has no fishy taste and is just marvelous. It runs around $27.99 a pound, but is worth every penny as you simply can't get it this good anywhere else! TIP - Grab a tail piece as it doesn't have much in the way of small bones. The fish and seafood selection outside of the smoked variety is legit. The scallops are the size of the Giant Jawbreakers you bought as a kid and some of the lobster tails rival the size of small children! The copper river salmon here is magnificent and overall, you really can't go wrong. Not as showy as the guys out front throwing the fish, but seriously, you're in Seattle - shouldn't you go with the less flashy spot? If you get nothing else from this review - BUY SMOKED SALMON HERE!. It's the best we've ever found (and we looked all over Seattle for the 6 years we lived there). The guys that work here are fantastic at helping you find what you're looking for, whatever your seafood needs be!
  • I have bought fish from this market many times in the past. I purchased 1 1/2 pounds of fresh mussels this morning. After a 30 minute ride home I took the mussels out of their wrapping to put them on ice in preparation for tonight's dinner. When I opened the wrapping I noticed a rather foul smell. As I was cleaning the mussels I noticed some were open and actually wreaked of rotten fish. I have the mussels in a bag in my freezer and they will be tossed with the garbage this week. The only saving grace was that I phoned to let them know of my situation Neal the manager showed sincere concern and was going to immediately investigate. He said he would make good on my $7 purchase next time I was in. The $7 is not that big of a deal but it was a nice gesture on his part.
  • Fun to visit and probably delicious. Decent prices for a tourist attraction
  • As a landlubber living in the heart of the midwest, I am delighted to have found Pure Food Fish Market online. I have actually given fresh fish as birthday presents. There is no salmon better than their buttery king copper river in the world...I am sure of it. When an order got mixed up in shipping they "made it right." So glad to have found them.
  • The quality of fish at the market is excellent! However, I do not recommend getting their fish overnighted to you. My husband and I live in Charlotte, and fresh seafood is hard to come by, so we were so excited when they let us pick out our fish, and told us they would overnight it to us! We chose Halibut, Trout, Mussels, Scallops, and Shrimp, and we were so excited for our delivery. When we received the box, we almost threw up from the smell. They put a few ice packs on the fish instead of dry ice. I called and spoke to the manager, who told me that smell was normal. When I opened the pack of mussels, I saw that they were all open, which means they are "Dead" and would give us food poison if we had tried to cook it. I couldn't believe they showed no concern that we had $315 of bad fish because they didn't take the time to pack it properly! And, then they tried to tell us that it was fine. I am so glad my husband and I had enough sense to throw it away. A very expensive, $315 lesson to learn, but this place could care less if their food is contaminated, or if their customers are happy.
