Bars and Restaurants

Front Street Cafe (360) 276 4884

Located a mile and a half south of the cottage in Seabrook, the Front Street Cafe serves good food at reasonable prices and generous portions; you can't beat that! It also offers good views of the ocean and serves throughout the day, happy hour is from 4-6pm.

Windjammer - 113 N 1st St, Pacific Beach (360) 276 8199

The Windjammer is only 300 yards from the cottage on the western side of the road to the south. It offers functional food at good prices. As part of the Naval Recreational Facility the restaurant is functional, but lacks intimacy, it is also set back from the Ocean which is a crying shame as the views would be magnificent. It serves throughout the day, the good news is that you do not pay tax on your meal! You can eat in or take away.

Falcon's Nest - 28 Main St, Pacific Beach (360) 276 4440

An old staple located in downtown Pacific Beach, specializes in burgers and now pizzas! Primarily a take out location, it also offers limited seating inside and ample benches outside. It can often take 15 minutes to receive your order, as all food is made to order so phoning ahead can be of real benefit. They also have yummy treats, soft serve ice cream and my favorite-milkshakes!

Paddie's Perch - 41 Main St, Pacific Beach (360) 276 8144

The genuine diner in downtown Pacific Beach. Owned by Pattie and Eddie, it is the locals place to eat, Pattie waits the tables and Eddie does the cooking. Don't be turned away by the signs, Pattie loves children and they are welcome. If you are up for good quality food and great desserts for the family this is a good choice. Pattie bakes homemade pies each day!

Take Out only

You and I market - 51 Main St, Pacific Beach (360) 276 8182

The local gas station has opened a Teriyaki take out restaurant! The food is good, and the service is fast. Prices are not too bad either.

Moclips Country Store - Located on SR 109 in downtown Moclips (360) 276 0296

A couple of miles north of the house, nearly in Moclips is the Moclips Country Store. It has a take out bar for fried chicken and corn dogs, not too memorable, but worthy of a mention.

Bars / restaurants

Seagate - 4594 State Route 109 Pacific Beach, (360) 276 4118

Half a mile north of the cottage set back on the east side of the main road is Seagate, don't let the exterior fool you, or the interior for that matter. I love their food, especially the fries. This is a 21 or older location. Open for breakfast onwards, the burgers are the best. Like many restaurants in the area, the portions are huge. Always on my list of places to visit when I am down there for the weekend.

Evenings they have Karaoke, some of the worst singers can be found packed in here on a weekend night.

Aloha Tavern - 2990 Ocean Beach Rd Pacific Beach (360) 276 4723

Three miles east of Pacific Beach on the main road back to Aberdeen is the Aloha Tavern, I think Ta Ta would have been a better name for this place as you drive on by. Not highly frequented I am not aware of their food. The only time I have been there it was empty... very awkward.

Green Lantern - 3119 State Route 109 Copalis Beach (360) 289 2297

This pub is about 10 miles south of Pacific Beach, the food is OK. They have shuffle board, worth the drive, if you are after a pub.

Up scale

Ocean Crest - 4651 SR 109 Moclips (360) 276 4465

Apparently a great wine list and upscale restaurant overlooking the Ocean, I haven't visited but when I do I will update.

Emily's Restaurant - Quinault Casino 78 St. Rt. 115 Ocean Shores (360) 289 9466

Located in the Quinault Casino 15 miles south of Pacific Beach towards Ocean Shores, this is a fine restaurant. The finest I have been too in the area, worth the drive if you are looking to celebrate (and maybe gamble!).
