7 Lakeside Restaurants In Washington You Simply Must Visit This Time Of Year
Although some parts of the state may still have to wait on the perfect weather, Memorial Day weekend is considered the kickoff to summer here in Washington. And while there’s no shortage of amazing patio and waterfront dining options here, sometimes nothing tops enjoying a meal on the shores of one of our beautiful lakes. These are a few of our favorite lakeside eateries.
1. The White Swan Public House, 1001 Fairview Ave N., Seattle
You'll find several awesome eateries on the shores of Lake union, but there's something about this rustic seafood spot that keeps people coming back for more. It could be the views, but it could also be the food (the seafood chowder is exceptional).
2. Sorrento's Ristorante, Tsillan Cellars, 3875 US Highway 97A, Chelan
The food, vino and lake views at this winery restaurant are always outstanding. But there's something about enjoying the patio dining on a warm day that makes you feel like you're truly celebrating summer's arrival.
3. Michael's on the Lake, 910 W Broadway Ave., Moses Lake
Michael's has been a Moses Lake favorite for years, and for good reason -- the food and the views are both fantastic. But nothing tops a sunset dinner on the patio on a warm evening.
4. Water's Table, 1053 Lake Washington Blvd N., Renton
Located inside Renton's Hyatt Regency Hotel on Lake Washington, this hidden gem serves incredible Northwest inspired Asian cuisine with unbeatable views.
5. Klink's Resort, 18617 W Williams Lake Rd., Cheney
Klink's Resort is a laid back RV resort with cozy cabins, boat rentals, and all the amenities for a great vacation. They also happen to have an onsite restaurant on the shores of Williams Lake that serves classic American entrees to die for. The restaurant is open every day but Monday.
6. McGilvra's, 4234 E Madison St., Seattle
Seattle's Madison Park neighborhood is full of fantastic restaurants and bars, but there's something especially charming about this quiet pub that sits across the street from the shores of Lake Washington. The menu includes standard pub fare with a full bar, and they have live music every Friday and Saturday night.
7. Salmon House, Rain Forest Resort, 516 S Shore Rd., Quinault
If you're exploring the Olympic Peninsula this summer, you'll definitely want to enjoy a meal at the Salmon House in Quinault. The delicious smoked salmon, their specialty, is always freshly prepared, and they've got plenty of tasty steak and chicken dinners if seafood isn't your top choice.
There’s nothing like waterfront dining on a warm Washington day. Here’s
another great list of waterside spots to try this summer.
