With the popular Bite of Seattle festival each July and some of country’s finest wineries, Washington is the ultimate destination for foodies. The state is known for having some of the best quality seafood, both caught by local fishermen and imported from Pacific Ocean neighbors Japan and Alaska, and the unique restaurants scattered across its many waterways offer a dining experience like no other. Here are 10 restaurants on the Washington Waterfront that will make the trip worth it.
Located along the water at Seattle’s Elliott Bay Marina, Palisade is an elegant seafood and steak restaurant with an Asian Fusion twist. The menu includes traditional steakhouse options as well as more contemporary and experimental dishes – innovative seafood options influenced by Hawaiian and Japanese flavors. Palisade serves dinner, brunch, and holiday buffets, and the restaurant is a great option for special occasions and romantic evenings. Be sure to try some of the amazing cocktails from the bar, which include special ingredients like house-made brandied cherries.
Devoted Kiss is a place for coffee, sandwiches, breakfast, and lunch. It’s one of the most popular (and beautiful) waterfront cafes in Gig Harbor. The menu includes freshly made dishes and baked goods, and 90% of what you order can be customized, including gluten-free options. The setting is small and intimate, which gives the place the warm feel of a home away from home. There are books and magazines that you can read while enjoying your meal, free WiFi, a nice fireplace, and seats on the deck with stunning views.
Located on Tacoma’s waterfront, Duke’s has amazing views and a great atmosphere that makes it worth the experience. Its specialties are Wild Alaska seafood and all-natural chowders. Most of the menu is made up of seafood dishes, all prepared in different ways, but Duke’s also serves great burgers, which are made with 100% grass-fed beef. The seafood is some of the state’s freshest, and everything is sustainably caught, which has brought many awards and honors, including the highest rating among all seafood restaurants in the State of Washington by Fish2Fork, a leading evaluator of international seafood restaurants.
