Waterfront Seafood Grill
2801 Alaskan Way
Seattle WA 98121
Seattle's hidden jewel, gorgeous and warmly elegant, Waterfront Seafood Grill sparkles at the tip of Pier 70. Walls of glass showcase some of Seattle's finest views of Elliott Bay, Magnolia Bluff and the Space Needle.
If you ask the Waterfront Seafood Grill’s own Chris Sparkman what makes Seattle’s Pier 70 spot so special, he’ll tell you it’s the people. Naturally, he’s referring to the guests, but perhaps more importantly, he’s also speaking about his staff. “They’ve got to have fire in their belly,” he explains enthusiastically, “otherwise, they may as well just stay out of the kitchen, so to speak.”
A consummate gentleman hailing from Tennessee who has worked with top-tier pros like Emeril Lagasse, Sparkman has always been a stickler for impeccable service. That means the whole robotic auto-pilot approach just doesn’t cut it in his restaurant. “Our exchange with the guests has to be meaningful. I’m very particular about that. For us, it really is all about connecting with every person that comes in here.”
At Waterfront, you’ll find delicious food and great wine—everything that the Mackay family of restaurants is known for—but you may also discover an unexpected element of good, old-fashioned Southern hospitality, a rare and cherished find here in the Northwest. It manifests itself in all sorts of warm ways, from thoughtfully posed questions (after which guests are given time to answer and intently listened to when they do), to genuine smiles and eye contact. Sparkman understands that when it comes to providing unparalleled service for diners, it’s the little things make the Waterfront experience stand out from the rest. Here, they make it seem like second-nature. And, frankly, Sparkman wouldn’t want it any other way.
