Why It's Cool: The sun-drenched outdoor deck at this casual spot at the historic Roche Harbor Resort practically hangs out over the water.
Must-Order: Fish 'n' chips are done well here: the beer battered cod, fried crisp and served with an extra tart tartar sauce, with a side of vinegary slaw.
Insider Tip: This breakfast and lunch spot is an order-at-the-counter setup, so if you want full service, head back down the dock to the Madrona Bar and Grill, a sister venue with an equally captivating view of the waterfront. After eating, head over and check out the nearby, 30-acre sculpture park.
