Local burger chain Kidd Valley Burgers and Shakes will celebrate the opening of its seventh and largest restaurant on Wednesday, August 2 at 10 a.m. with a day of festivities. The restaurant, which opened July 22 on Pier 54, features new menu items and updated decor.
Opening day comes with festivities like a ribbon cutting ceremony and milkshake toast from Kidd Valley Founder John Morris. There will be live music from 10 to 11:30 a.m., and a photo booth from 12 to 4 p.m. Die-hard fans can also enter a trivia contest through September 3 for prizes like a Doug Baldwin-signed football helmet, grill set, Mariners tickets, and more.
The burger chain is changing things up for its largest location to date. New menu items like a chicken club sandwich; Northwest wine, beer, and cider; and healthy kids’ meals with sides like apples and Go-Gurt will grace the menu at the pier.
And this restaurant will mark Kidd Valley’s biggest yet. It spreads across nearly 3,000 square feet, with indoor seating for 82 diners and outdoor seating for 24. The tables and some of the chairs are made from wood reclaimed during the 2015 remodel of Ivar’s Acres of Clams. Kidd Valley isn't the only longtime local chain making changes as it expands; Duke's Chowder House is planning significant upgrades to its model with an upcoming Bellevue expansion, for example.
Kidd Valley at Pier 54 will be open seven days a week from 10:30 a.m. to 11 p.m.
