One of the most anticipated restaurant openings on Bainbridge Island for 2018 is Agate Restaurant, formerly Known as Agate Pass Cafe, which moved from its long-time location in Suquamish to its new location behind the Bainbridge Brewing Alehouse, and next to the Bainbridge Island Museum of Art. Agate Restaurant, which altered its name slightly to reflect its new location, is located in a brand new and beautiful space. They’ve updated the menu slightly, although many of the beloved favorite from years’ past are still on the menu, and they are now taking reservations. One of the newest restaurants to open on Bainbridge Island is The Timber Bar, located inside the Bainbridge Pavilion near the movie theater. The Timber Bar is already earning buzz as a great place to grab cocktails and a delicious steak dinner, hamburger, and fries on the island. It’s definitely a place for the carnivores among us, but there are a couple of options for vegetarians, too.
Beyond these new additions to the Bainbridge Island dining scene, there have been even more additions to the popular community dinners at Heyday Farm, a family-owned sustainable farm on Bainbridge Island.

These dinners are extraordinary, and should be at the top of every food-lover’s list.
