Watching the fog clear on a Fort Ebey walk with Olivia. Later, back home for Harvest Fest 2018 with friends and family. The rain left us alone for the day.

Made with king oyster mushrooms. Many recipes on the web.

Thanks Carl

A scenic seaport town on an island. Interesting local geography, several nice parks and a farmers market.

 

Rockfish Grill – Friendly bar. Good service.

 

Union Tavern – Friendly bar. Good service. Stopped in for a very nice On That Dust IPA.

 

San Juan Lanes Bar and Grill – Friendly location. Good service. Very nice Fish & Chips. Haven’t tried the bar yet. It opens at 4 PM.

 

Real Tequila Tex-Mex Restaurant – We enjoyed this one more than the fancy Mexican restaurant in town. These are the only two we have tried so far.

 

 

Stop everything. See if BBQ still works.

Don’t miss Village Pizzeria– just up the hill.

High above the water. Great views, great service, great food. Full bar.

We’ll be back.

Family tradition – Turkey on the Weber

We found a new spot in Seaside. Luann was our bartender. We were very happy with our visit on a day that was still nice enough to sit outside.

U Street Clam Dip- loved it:

See you next time.

I prefer the atmosphere of a good Northwest pub. Over the past 10 years or so- I have been to several of these mom & pops locations where there has been an odd vibe.

It feels like- if you didn’t go to high school with the people who run the bar, or come in five or six days a week at 1530- that you may be seen as some sort of second class citizen and the service will reflect that.

I’ve experienced this at a couple of places in Port Townsend, one in Port Hadlock, one in Coupeville and maybe one in Edison.

Are these folks just scattered, busy or burnt out?

Maybe they were just having an off day when I was there.

I’m always on good behavior and tip well. I appreciate good service.

I’ve always had good luck with the bar at any Applebee’s I’ve been to. We recently visited the Oak Harbor location. We will be back. It’s clear that the people who work at the bar place a priority on customer service. Much appreciated.

I used to enjoy the bar service at 7 Cedars Casino. We moved away from the area, so it’s been a long time, but they always ran a good bar in there. The casino at Ocean Shores is probably one of the most lacking casino bars I have been to. That was a few years back- maybe they have improved.

We recently visited a nice spot where we went in for the very first time and really enjoyed it. We will continue to show up at the NW pubs.
