Our Summary Review

"Just a food counter inside a fish market", this century-old Polk Gulch "institution" serves "the freshest seafood imaginable" until 5:30 PM; the "uncomfortable stool seating" is "as informal as the docks" but "the crew behind the counter" treats you "as one of their own", so while detractors say it's "not worth the price and wait", some supporters consider it "a strong contender for last meal on earth."
