It has been a long nine months without Seattle’s famous oyster happy hour and delicious seafood from Elliott’s Oyster House and Café 56.

Summer at the Waterfront

With warmer temperatures, alfresco dining returns to Elliott’s beloved deck– still one of the best spots for happy hour cocktails, slurping oysters and outdoor dining in Seattle. Summer also means the return of Café 56 Ice Cream, served right on the waterfront at the café’s walk-up bar. Flavors include Chocolate, Vanilla, Strawberry, Rainbow Sherbet, Cookies and Cream, Mint Chocolate Chip, Mocha Almond Fudge, Huckleberry and Bubblegum.
