Not surprisingly I have found the Port Angeles/ Sequim area vastly under-rated in regards to roadfood.
First off, while tiny Sequim does have a few chain retaurants, Port Angeles is comprised of at least 90% independantly owned eateries. Not a single Applebees or TGIF to be found.
Some local favorites of mine so far.
The already mentioned 3 Crabs, Sequim : Laid back quality seafood in the middle of nowhere on the waters edge. Very nice indeed.
The already mentioned Frugal Hamburgers, Port Angeles : Decent burgers and shakes at a great price. Drive through only, be prepared to wait during peak hours.
Peaks Brewpub, Port Angeles : Handcrafted beers, and numerous local NW microbrews on tap, as well as Ed’s Killer Chili. A bowl of this is a meal in itself, and is only 5 bucks.
Jeremiahs BBQ- Sequim – Superb BBQ by any standards. A little hole-in-the-wall place with just a few tables. Fantastic baby back ribs and chicken, as well as brisquet.
The Landing, Port Angeles – Right at the ferry docks. Now I must admidt I have only had fish and chips there, but they are outstanding. A choice of Haddock, Arctic Cod, or Salmon, or a combo plate of all 3. The fish pieces are over an inch thick, and the very light breading is superb. A little pricy, but fine fish and chips.
Dynasty Chinese, Port Angeles- Very good chinese food, well above average.Some unusual dishes.
The Bushwacker Restaurant, Port Angeles.: A superb selection of local seafood, well prepared, and delicious. If you want to go to one place to try most of the local seafood options, this is the place to go. A little pricy.
Gordy’s Restaurant, Port Angeles : Not to be confused with Gordy’s Pizza on 1st, which is greasy and overpriced, Gordy’s restaurant on Lincoln offers a fine breakfast at decent prices. They are also open for lunch, but I have yet to try their lunches.
I really could list alot more, there is no shortage of restaurants around here. I will add to this list later when I have more time.
While it may not be the culinary capitol of the NW, the Port Angeles/Sequim area has more than its share of decent restaurants if one takes the time to look.
