Good, standard fish and chips. They are served nice and hot with plenty of natural cut fries. I was surprised how moist the chicken strips were. Not bad if you have a craving for deep fried food but I probably couldn't eat here more

I've had a few people sing praises of Spud's when I first moved here to Seattle, and, living by Alki, I decided to give them a try. And...what's the big deal? The seafood itself is fine, if not mind-blowing, but the fries are awful, soggy and barely edible. There's also a strong and distinct odor of what I can best describe as toilet water at the front entrance (believe me, I stopped here twice, trying another item the second time around to see if it would be much better, which it wasn't, and that plumbing leak smell remained there from the last time around). According to the reviews here, they USED to be a great place but have apparently went downhill in recent years, which is a shame, really, if true.

If you want a good quality fried seafood place on Alki where the french fries are actually edible, check out Sunfish instead, which is less hyped but far superior all-around.

This restaurant has great food and service. The other fun thing about it is the historical component. They have pictures on the wall of the Alki area from many years ago. It is fascinating to walk along the photos and see how Alki has changed, but the Spud Fish and Chips is still there. It is one of those few restaurants left with an upstairs eating area and of course great views of the Sound!

This is a popular fish & chips joint and is very popular during the summer months. It's across the street from the beach with great views of Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains. Service is prompt and the food is good. We will return soon.

A bit pricey but good quality food is what you get. Great place to enjoy the beach. The tartar sauce is so good! It was very busy when I went but the food came up quickly and the staff was not faze with a long line behind me. The fries were so good. There were some mix up when the food came up but it got sorted out quickly and handle professionally. Great job under pressure of the friday night rush. Plenty of seating upstair too.

This place is a lot of fun and the food is fantastic. If you love fish and chips this is the place to go. This Alki location has great views of the sound. The atmosphere is relaxing yet fun. Take a stroll along the waterfront after your meal, you won't regret it.

Let me tell you, I may have never eaten here before, but I'm pretty sure General Gridlock and Army Armstrong BOTH give it a biggie size thumbs down. If only you knew what I knew, you'd understand why the Spudders need to be curb stomped. LOSE.

Pros: I'm serious. Getting stabbed would be better than going here.

Cons: Where do I begin? Let's start with the door and make our way to the FLOOR!

I keep reading the reviews of spuds and people saying that it used to be better years ago. Well everybody can thank the liberals and the vegheads for the recent lack of flavor, because years ago we used saturated fats and trans fats to do all of our deep frying and that was the only way to make deep fried food of that kind taste good. Now I might be making a lot of people mad but you can thank yourselves in king county. Instead of forcing people to practice self control with what they eat we punish our favorite places to eat. Trans fat or saturated fat is a necessary ingredient when frying food bring it back and spuds will taste good again. I will say I have a fish and chips restaurant but I will not say where, I will also say that I have 15 years of deep frying knowledge in my head. So basically you can believe me or not and I don't care either way.

I tried every fish and chipper in West Seattle and thought all of them sucked. Spud's was the last one. I had no hope whatsoever that his one would be any different from the rest, but I walked in anyway. I asked "Is you fish breaded or battered"? (I dispise breaded fish and can get nothing but that in Seattle) A very kind woman states "You can get them both here" My heart started to soar. Then when I got my dinner home, I realized that I had found the only fish and chips in the whole state that I loved! And the battered prawns! delicious. I was very disappointed with the cole slaw but on the whole I will keep coming here for a long time.

Pros: Great food, Nice staff, Great view

Cons: Prices kind of high, xtra tartar costs

I grew up eating Spud's at Alki. It was absolutely the best. When I moved away, I would bring my husband and son back to Spud's when we visited--we just had to come. But the last couple of years, the quality just hasn't been there and I much prefer the fish and chips down the road at the marina. Sorry.

I've been a Spud fan all my life but I have to tell you that quality has been heading downhill for the last couple of years. Instead of crunchy batter with moise fish I've had soggy outsides, dry insides and less than appealing fries. Even my beloved garlic vinegar can't fix it. Come on Spud, clean up the restaurants and get the quality back up!

If you are going to visit Spuds, you need to drive out to the Juanita location. The location on Alki was bought and/or sold-out ... they are nothing more original than the fish-y chain Ivars.

The Juanita location is the original recipe ... this is easily the best.

I've lived down the street from Spud all my life. In the last about 4 years it has gone steadily downhill. Every now and then I stop in to see if it is as bad as it was the last time, and it's been worse and worse. About a week ago, which really will be the last time for me, the fish was raw inside, cold, and the batter was soaked up with grease like an old leftover that had been re-heated up in the oil. Also all three pieces of "cod" were that icky brown color that should be what you trim off to get a good filet. The whole restaurant smelled like stale fish which has never been that bad before. They're getting fewer and fewer customers and that is why.
Save your money and go to the Sunfish

Spuds has been around forever....you dont hang around this long by being bad. When I want some of the best fish n chips around...I head to Spuds. Growing up in Alaska...I love good fish..and Spud's fish has always been top notch. I always send people their way. Chinooks has good fish also, but I like supporting the little guy. Just go there and try it if you havent already!

Pros: taste, consistency, size of order

.

Given, the recipe and the quality has changed somewhat over the years, but nothing hits the spot better than the Spud variety. My mom tells me stories about Spuds from 1945, when she and her sister gathered bottle deposits at Alki Beach, and turned right around and bought an order of fish and chips to share. She claims they taste just the same as they did back then.. That's special!
