So Auntie Em's in from Kansas and wants fresh seafood, reasonable prices, and one of Seattle's patented liquid views. For that we have Chinook's, a midpriced entry in the Anthony's Restaurants chain, whose sprawling, noisy, family-friendly, come-as-you-are setting is ideal for Fishermen's Terminal, the authentic and comparatively untouristed working port for the North Pacific Fishing Fleet. (Yep, those are real fishermen out the window.) Nothing's going to knock her socks off (you didn't really want to see Auntie Em's feet anyway), but the fish is reliably fresh, the preparations casual—halibut fish and chips, fish tacos, alder-planked salmon, pastas, salads—and the breakfasts particularly appealing with the morning sun glinting off the masts. Free parking and moorage; no reservations.
