Delicious Eats

The menu at The Wayfarer Restaurant is simple and unembellished, with dishes that highlight the best of the region. Breakfast begins at 8 a.m. and features a variety of omelettes, benedicts, and other egg dishes. There’s also pancake stacks and homemade waffles. If you’re coming in for lunch, much on a few appetizers like Dungeness crab mac & cheese or fried Pacific calamari. You can even choose from a myriad of sandwiches, salads, and soups. Be sure to order a cup of the famous Wayfarer clam chowder. It’s so good, you’ll come back again the next day!

Burger and cocktail at the Wayfarer Restaurant and Lounge

While anytime is a great time to dine at The Wayfarer, it’s dinner that truly steals the show. In the winter, we love the Pinot Noir salmon which features Wild Northwest salmon seared and accented with a Pinot Noir gastrique. It’s finished on a cedar plank and served with house-blended rice and seasonal local vegetables. Or try the Northwest razor clams which are lightly breaded with a sesame coating and quickly seared in butter. If you’re not a fan of seafood, there are a number of chicken, beef, and pasta dishes that will tempt your taste buds. Request a table by the window and enjoy incredible sunset views throughout your meal.
