6 Best Restaurants in Sequim, The Olympic Peninsula and Washington Coast

Alder Wood Bistro

$$$ Fodor's choice

Look to this easygoing, art-filled restaurant for inventive, locally sourced, and mostly organic dishes, including pizzas from the wood-fired oven with creative toppings like pesto, truffled goat cheese, and pickled onions. The menu's sustainably harvested seafood selections highlight whatever is in season and also get the wood-fire treatment. Even the bacon-wrapped meat loaf features local grass-fed beef, along with buttermilk mashed potatoes and greens.

Salty Girls Seafood

$$ Fodor's choice

This hip, counter-service seafood bar with a mod-industrial vibe serves Puget Sound oysters and clams on the half shell—either raw or baked with seasonal compound butters—and several beers and ciders on tap to wash them down. Oyster shooters are another favorite, and there's a short menu of other fish-centric dishes, from steamed Dungeness crab with clarified butter to chowder made with local clams, but nothing fried.

Hurricane Coffee Co.


Pop into this dapper downtown java house while browsing Sequim's bounty of boutiques and galleries for a blackberry mocha or a golden turmeric chai. The food offerings hit the spot, too—consider the caprese panini or triple-chocolate croissant.



This greenhouse-enclosed restaurant with a garden patio overlooks one of the region's oldest lavender and herb farms and features a creative, seasonally inspired menu. The specialties change often but might include lamb burgers with turmeric-pickled onions and Dijon aioli, seared pork belly with tamari-ginger sauce, and chili-seared halibut with a rhubarb-tarragon salsa. Try the house-made smoothies and shrub sodas.
