San Juan Lanes Bar & Grill, Anacortes
I didn't believe the woman at the Chamber of Commerce who told me I could find the best fish-and-chips in town at the bowling alley. But she was right. 360/293-7500 or
* Bowling starts with breakfast!

Tides Tavern, Gig Harbor
Noisy and friendly, the Tides feels authentically Pacific Northwestern. The local oyster shooters and craft beers are especially good. 253/858-3982 or

Lowell's Restaurant & Bar, Seattle
Lowell's offers quick service (first and third floors), table service (second floor), and views (Puget Sound or Pike Place). Try fish-and-chips or Dungeness crab. 206/622-2036 or
