Ivar's Historical Legacy
Ivar's began with one very entrepreneurial spirit – the late Ivar Haglund. Haglund was a true Seattle icon, known as an entertainer, folksinger, restaurateur and ultimately, the "King" of the Seattle waterfront. In 1938, Haglund opened Seattle's first aquarium on Pier 54. As droves of people lined up to view the Puget Sound sea life Haglund had collected, he noticed his patrons were working up an appetite. Haglund quickly began to sell clam chowder and fish n' chips from what is now known as Ivar's Pier 54 Fish Bar.
Always devising new attention-getting capers, Ivar staged a number of famous pranks and masterminded numerous stunts in his time, including the visit to Santa with Patsy the Seal in 1940, international clam eating contests, and an Ivar clam stamp caper in 1960 (later revoked by the U.S. Postal Service). He was also a regular with Captain Puget on KJR and KIRO radio stations, as well as the JP Patches children's television program. Ivar passed away in 1985, just shy of his 80th birthday. The crew at Ivar's carried on his antics in the years that followed with the Dances with Clams commercial in 1991, the shortest Super Bowl commercial in television history and the discovery of Ivar's Underwater Billboards in Puget Sound in 2009, and many more.
