From the Alki boardwalk — home to Seattle’s only sandy beach — to stunning views of Elliott Bay and ample opportunities for kayaking and whale-watching, there’s a lot to love about laid-back West Seattle. In recent years the neighborhood has felt even more like an island due to the West Seattle bridge closure. But with a thriving restaurant scene, residents and visitors were hardly missing out. West Seattle features its own smokehouse and butcher shop at Lady Jaye, crispy falafel at Falafel Salam, sustainable and responsibly-sourced sushi at Mashiko, and acclaimed Italian restaurant Il Nido.
Until the bridge reopens (currently slated to open mid-summer), visitors from the north can take the long way via Highway 99 or I-5 south to Marginal Way, or take the pedestrian water taxi from downtown to Alki for a distinctly West Seattle vibe. Here’s an overview of some of the best restaurants in the area, arranged geographically from west to east.
