Unpretentious and unchanged since the 50??s, the term greasy spoon doesn??t even come close to describing the deep fried goodness that practically drips off the walls. Though Spud at Greenlake has been around since 1940, it moved to its current location in 1959, and is now a designated historical site. Three locations in all, many customers have such loyalty that they declare this the only authentic Spud.

While nostalgia plays a part in making this a Seattle institution, the fish and chips make it the popular attraction it is. A little higher on the price scale, with an extra charge for ketchup and tartar, it is well worth it to fulfill one??s fish cravings. Fresh, flaky, moist cod coated in a light, flavorful batter are served up with a side of well-balanced ratio of crunchy-to-limber french fries. Squeeze a bit of fresh lemon, douse it all with some of their handcrafted vinegar, then dip in tangy tartar sauce, and you??re ready to experience the explosion of flavors in your mouth. Other deep fried seafood is on the menu; prawns, halibut, clams, scallops, but for the traditionalist, only the cod will do.

There are a few window seats inside for cooler days, but when the Seattle sun comes out to play, take your steaming hot meal wrapped in it??s grease-soaked paper, head out to the adjacent patio, and grab a seat at one of the umbrella-topped, retro tables with bench seating. Fresh fish just tastes better eaten outdoors, and it??s the perfect spot for people watching. Location seems to be the key to long term success here. Directly across from the lake, you can reward yourself after your long run around the lake or take the kids for lunch after a morning at the park. Whatever the occasion, a visit to Spud is a must do Seattle experience.

Pros: best fried fish in town

Cons: zero

A thorough cleaning of the place and employees would be my first order of business. Food is great. Not a great variety but ample if you don't want their famous fish and chips.

Lived in England for 15 years so I'm qualified to judge fish and chips. While no place I've seen in the US makes it quite like the English, this place is pretty close. Try it.

Spud's makes the best milkshakes, and true to Northwest form the flavor is blackberry. The fish and chips are good. The fries tend to be a little greasy, but the halibut can't be beat. You can always walk off a hearty meal at Spud's by taking a stroll around Green lake. Its not just lunch, it's a tradition!

Spud's has excellent fish and chips that I crave every time I visit Seattle. I enjoy getting fish at Spud's and walking the food across the street to Green Lake. I think ordering the double fish is the key to avoid getting too many fries, and add some clams and prawns for variety. They have halibut in addition to the more traditional cod, and the blackberry milkshakes are always a treat.

Everytime I eat here it is the same. In fact once I came here with my grandparents and they said that this is what they remember from long time ago. I like them, they are different from other fish and chips, and I love their fresh cut fries. I also like the old fashioned feel of the restaurant.

Spuds has been on my list of favorites since I started going there as a child. Spuds is still serving up the best fish n' chips in town, delivering whole breasts of cod as compared to their competitors who only serve cod strips. If you visit, be sure to head to the Greenlake location as it is the only Spuds location that is independently owned -- you will taste a difference. Single with extra is all you will ever need!

I tired spud's for the first time a week ago. The place looks like a dive, but wow, do they know how to fry seafood. The fish was light and crispy; the oysters were perfect. I'd recommend ordering the food as take-out, because a bench in green lake park is likely to be more enjoyable, at least in the summer months. Great food!
