If you live in the Seattle area, odds are you’ve heard of at least some of our acclaimed Bainbridge Island restaurants. Bainbridge Island has consistently been considered a top destination for foodies in the Puget Sound area, thanks to big-name restaurants like Brendan McGill’s Hitchcock Restaurant, chef Greg Atkinson’s Marché, and newcomer Ba Sa.
You’ve always been able to count on a great meal from Bainbridge Island. And now, after being largely shut down during the COVID-19 pandemic, these restaurants are going to need your help now, more than ever before. And truly, there are more great restaurants than you can try in a single day, so make sure you plan in a few overnight stays when it’s safe to do so.
Our lodging properties are located all over the island, including downtown Winslow. Browse through our great offerings, and when it’s safe to travel again, come stay with us for a few days on Bainbridge Island.
Bainbridge Island restaurants are truly exquisite. Our mouth starts watering just thinking about some of the possibilities. While we’re happy to see that many of them are offering takeout during the stay at home order, we still can’t wait until they’re back open for regular service. We miss sitting with our neighbors, friends new and old, and enjoying the traditional dining experience.
Not only are the Bainbridge Island restaurants delicious, but they’re also varied. Whatever your tastebuds may crave, our restaurants will satisfy. From simple, casual fare to high-end cafes and adventurous tasting menus, this summer is the perfect opportunity to satisfy your cravings.
Getting to Bainbridge Island from the Seattle area is pretty easy, too. Just a quick and beautiful ride on the Bainbridge Island Ferry across the Puget Sound and a short walk will take you onto Winslow Way, where a majority of the Bainbridge Island Restaurants await. If you come early enough in the day, you might consider stopping in at one (or two or three) of the wineries or tasting rooms downtown.
It’s impossible to do the Bainbridge Island restaurant scene justice in one short blog post, and we apologize if we miss anyone on that list. That being said, here are some of the best Bainbridge Island restaurants that you really should support when possible this summer.
There are far more than 10 great restaurants on Bainbridge Island, including San Carlos, Plate & Pint, The Harbour Public House, Casa Rojas, The Islander (open the latest out of all of them!), Madison Diner, the BIMA Bistro, the Amelia Wynn Winery Bistro, and so many more small cafes and restaurants offering delicious food.
Bainbridge Island restaurants won’t disappoint, but it will definitely be hard to choose a favorite. We find that the food here is so delicious, there’s rarely a need to head into the city. In return, we do see quite a few visitors coming from the city just for the chance to dine in our quaint island town.
These Bainbridge Island restaurants, and a number of the other small businesses in town, rely on the support of visitors coming over from Seattle, along with their dedicated local crowd. It’s been a tough couple of months, and we don’t want these restaurants to go anywhere. When it’s safe to make the trip across the water again, make the trip and help us support these incredible small businesses.
