Olympic Timberhouse Restaurant (Quilcene, WA)


Earlier in the day, we enjoyed a wine tasting with friends at Hoodsport Winery, courtesy of a gift from neighbors. So, we decided to make it part of a short vacation along the east side of the Olympic peninsula where tomorrow we’d take an all-day hike on the Big Quilcene Trail in the national forest.

For dinner, we dined at the Olympic Timberhouse Restaurant in Quilcene which was recommended by the motel where we were staying. By the way, we’ve found through the years that some of the best dining recommendations are given by the locals. The menu consists basically of comfort food and regional specialties. For example, we noticed fried razor clams, halibut, cod and Dungeness crab in various preparations.

My wife got a seafood platter of razor clams, cod, shrimp and oysters. The prime rib was not the best I’ve had, but pretty good. The seafood platter was slightly less successful, yet (again) pretty good.

Timberhouse was really the only quality restaurant in town, I venture to guess.
