Dinner suggestions--Port Angeles and Westport, WA?
- MsMaryMc Nov 5, 2007 03:54 PM
Going on a road trip in a couple of weeks--any suggestions for dinners either place? We'll probably want to keep it more inexpensive one night and do something a little nicer (seafood sounds like a good bet) for a birthday dinner the other. We're not looking for five-star dining, just a good meal for the money. Has anybody made any great discoveries they can share?
I've heard mixed things about The Three Crabs in Sequim---is it any good these days, or has it seen better ones?
Port Angeles has a few gems. A nice French place (C'est Si Bon) but perhaps costlier than you want. Joy's Wine Bar is good for dinner. Thai Pepper is very good. We particularly like Toga's Northwest International -- beautifully prepared food, and with a day's notice they also offer either a cheese or seafood fondue.
Three Crabs is OK for the experience (maybe a lunch) but not that great. For crab dinner, try Dupuis in Sequim, a somewhat quirky but quite charming place (and they offer crab dinners).
A couple of months ago I requested this type of information and was told about the Dockside Restaurant at the John Wayne Marina in Sequim. My wife and I went and thought that it was an excellent place from food to service.
That Econo-Lodge in Sequim is pretty decent, too. $66 for a nice room with a love seat in front of the TV and such.
re: Gualtier Malde
I agree with Dockside Grill as a great place on the waterfront, that has excellent food and great service. Another good place to eat is Cedar Creek for regional Italian. We never go to 3 Crabs, it's not a "locals" place to eat. And a fun place to stay is the Red Caboose Getaway, where you sleep in train cars and have a fantastic breakfast in the AM. They all have websites.
I must say that the Alder Wood Bistro is the best thing going in Sequim, fresh,local,organic and inspired......this place has soul! Casual and relaxed for a really elevated experience! The 3 Crabs is over, very over. Ending on a bright note the Little Oven in Port Angeles is putting out the pastry, excellent, on Peabody, easy to overlook but don't miss it, it's good I don't live too close.
In Aberdeen, Gabelli's Parma Italian Resturante (116 W. Heron St.) is not to be missed. Wonderful northern italian cuisine in a small, family-run place. Great pastas, fantastic desserts, etc.
