Vancouver, WA on a Saturday night

I'm going to be spending the weekend in Vancouver April 12-13, staying at the Homewood Suites basically on the water. I know there is a "Joe's Crab Shack" nearby but other than the name, and the website, which doesn't show prices, I don't know what sort of quality are they - they definitely look higher end (and higher priced) than Red Lobster!

So... I've got a car, I'd prefer to stay in Vancouver, and I'm looking under $20 for the entree (cheaper is fine!) for dinner. I'm solo.

I've done the (quite good) Laotian/Thai place at Esther Shore Park, and I'm fairly adventurous - Asian, Greek, German (if there is decent German within easy driving on either side of the river, I'm there), Italian, whatever.

I'm not into alcohol, so availability/quality of that shouldn't be considered.

So what's out there?

  1. I'd stay away from the Crab Shack. Beaches is within walking distance of the Homewood suites and the food isn't too bad.

      Extramsg usually responds to posts in the Portland/Vancouver area, but I haven't seen posts from him in months. Does anyone know where he went? I miss his restaurant knowledge of the area! I know he often recommends Thai and Mexican restaurants along Mill Plain Rd.
