We thought it was time to share a secret with you. A great place for fish and chips you’ve probably never heard of… unless you live in West Seattle.
Come to Seattle! When you do, you should definitely go to the Pike Place Market, ride the ferris wheel and walk the waterfront. Don’t forget to see where the movies were filmed: Singles, Sleepless in Seattle, Disclosure, The Ring, 50/50…. but before you stop in for fish and chips on the Seattle waterfront, we’d like to make a suggestion… head across the water to the Seattle Fish Company!
A quick water taxi ride from the Seattle waterfront will get you to our neighborhood, beautiful West Seattle. Here you can enjoy a five mile walk along Alki Beach (it’s where the Denny party founded Seattle before they moved across Elliott Bay to what is now Downtown Seattle). Grab a cup of coffee at Starbucks (yes! the locals definitely do this) and make your way up the hill on a free water taxi shuttle to The Junction, the “downtown” of West Seattle.
Take a short stroll northbound on California Avenue (now you are truly walking among the locals) to Jon Daniels’ Seattle Fish Company. THIS is the place for the freshest, crispiest, tastiest hand-breaded fish and chips in Seattle.
Seattle is surrounded by waters that provide the most delicious fish in the country, and at the Seattle Fish Company you can pick out your fish from the case to take home or watch them fry it up “to order”. Cod, Halibut, Salmon, Oyster Po Boys, Dungeness Crab, Clam Chowder, Salmon Cakes, Lobster Clubs…they do it all (in season) and it’s all ah-maz-ing! The Seattle Fish Company also smokes their own salmon using a recipe passed down from Jon’s dad, who was a fishing legend in Southeast Alaska back in the day. And, they ship to retail and wholesale customers all over the country.
These fish have NOT been thrown to tourists. That’s one more reason why we love the Seattle Fish Company.
As if all that fresh fish was not enough, you can also choose from a wonderful selection of local wines and beers to compliment your meal. Sit in the window, enjoy those tasty french fries and watch the rain fall. Now you’re eating like a West Seattle local. If you’re really lucky you might get a “sun break” for your trip back across the bay.
