Sip, Cycle Repeat: Cheers to a Sustainable Future

Discover the power of sustainable partnerships with us as we proudly collaborate with the ReCORK Recycling program. At the heart of our alliance lies the shared commitment to a greener, more eco-conscious future. We take natural wine corks and hand them over to ReCORK, who works their magic by expertly grinding them down. These corks become an integral part of the post-consumer recycling stream. Learn more about our partnership and the positive impact it creates!

Since opening in 1981, loyal guests return year after year for the friendly, knowledgeable service and the unbeatable views of Mount Rainier and the Olympics from every table. The seaside restaurant serves patrons fresh Pacific Northwest seafood, Prime dry-aged steaks, and iconic lobster dishes alongside incredible wines and cocktails.
