SEATTLE – Looking for a place to dine and enjoy the view?
Here are seven unique spots around western Washington to enjoy food and scenery.
For a seafood feast with sweeping views, head to Pier 57 in Seattle, where you can enjoy pre-ordered menus on the Great Wheel. A 4-course dinner, including wine, is prepared by The Fisherman’s Restaurant. It costs $152.50/person and spots must be reserved online for this kind of once-in-a-lifetime experience. 1301 Alaska Road, Seattle.
You can “dine in the sky” 31 floors above the city at this fine-dining restaurant. The menu includes grilled steaks over a wood fire and fruit, raw bar and celebratory desserts. But no one will blame you if you’ve come to the right place for sweeping 360-degree views of the Eastside and beyond. Open daily from 3-11pm 10400 NE 4th Street, Suite 3100, Bellevue.
For a more adventurous dining experience, head to Crystal Mountain Resort. On a clear summer day, you can take a gondola ride to The Summit House – Washington’s tallest restaurant at nearly 7,000 feet. Spacious outdoor seating and executive chef focused on “fresh seasonal food” on one side of Mount Rainier. Hours and dates change during the summer months depending on the weather. 33914 Crystal Mountain Blvd, Enumclaw.
The Hood Canal on the Olympic Peninsula is known for oysters, and Hama Hama Oyster Co. has long been a place to buy them fresh. A few years ago, the family-owned company opened the Hama Hama Oyster Saloon – an al fresco eatery serving raw and roasted oysters, along with other seafood and shellfish dishes, on the water’s edge. It’s a true northwest experience. Open Friday-Monday from 11am-5pm. Reservations during the summer are recommended. 35846 Hwy-101, Lilliwaup.
The marina is home to dining options with picturesque views across the water of the Narrows Bridge. Grab a pint from Narrows Brewing and something to eat from neighboring Boathouse 19, then ask for a table on the outdoor patio or inside the brewery near the window and drink it all up. 9007 S. 19th Street, Tacoma.
Diners can enjoy views of Portage Bay, then truly roam the water at this one-of-a-kind spot. Agua Verde Café is a casual New Mexican restaurant located on the water. Just downstairs, Agua Verde Paddle Club rents out kayaks and paddleboards to explore the Montlake Cut and nearby waterways. Open daily from 9am to 9pm No reservation required. 1301 NE Boat Street, Seattle.
The small eatery located between the Shilshole Bay Marina and the Golden Gardens serves soups, sandwiches, burgers, hot dogs and ice cream snacks. There are a few indoor seats overlooking the boats, or you can grab a takeout and sit on a bench nearby for a picnic on the beach with views of Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains. Open daily, except Wednesdays, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. 8003 Seaview Ave NW, Seattle.
