Recommended by Andersen’s
We’re happy to make recommendations for some of the best dining available on the west coast.
42nd Street Café & Bistro has been a consistent favorite over the years for Andersen’s guests. The eclectic menu satisfies seekers of traditional roadhouse meals like pot roast, chicken fried steak and fried razor clams. They usually do a nightly special featuring a fish dish. In the morning, try their bacon maple waffles or beignets . Mmmm. They are open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
The Lost Roo has become a favorite of our guests. Lots of menu choices, big screen TVs, and ample room to accommodate large groups. Prime Rib Thursdays are very popular. Try the tater tots :) or check out the bar-seahawk fans love to watch games here.
Pickled Fish perched atop the Adrift hotel has the best (only) view of the beach! The menu varies using locally purveyed ingredients and the craft cocktails impress. Live music nightly. 20% gratuity is automatically added to your bill. Open until 10pm.
Gallettis Our go-to for good pasta. Favorites are fettuccine with real alfredo sauce, chicken parmesan, lasagna, and spaghetti with meatballs. Discover their alter ego- Metro express cafe, serving up breakfast like excellent scratch biscuits and gravy.
Hungry Harbor KIDS favorite! Great fish and chips, gigantic burgers and more, there is something to please everyone. Even with ample indoor seating and dog-friendly outdoor seating they offer take-out! They also have a Sunday breakfast buffet. We love their seasonal decor and displays.
The Depot Restaurant Built in the original train depot, featuring fine dining with international wines, on-tap microbrews, a display kitchen, heated outdoor deck, and special events ranging from wine dinners to Jazz events. October through June the restaurant dedicates Wednesdays to ‘Burger Night’.
The Cove Located on the Peninsula Golf course, with views of the greens and ambient piano music playing. A locals favorite for lunchtime sandwich and salad plates, They offer delicious artistic Dinners on weekend nights.
Salt Pub With a beautiful view of the Ilwaco Harbor, Salt Pub serves simple handmade food, cocktails, beer and wine. Hard to beat their burger and fries.
Saltwater Bar and Grill Chef owned and operated, dedicated to obtaining only the freshest and best products for their food to give guests an excellent dining experience. Hard to choose meals here...It's all good!
Serious Pizza Two locations in Illwaco, indoor and outdoor seating, and more than just good pizza. They make their own dough, have a zillion toppings and bake in wood fire ovens. Amazingly they have gluten free options!
