The building in which the Alki Homestead Restaurant operated is the oldest surviving structure on the Alki Peninsula.
However, as of October 2009, this restaurant is closed.
We can hope that at some point another restaurant comes to fill this historic property.
By far the two most unique things about this restaurant are the 2nd floor level that give a much better view of Puget Sound than many of the other restaurants along Alki Beach, and the wonderful historic photographs giving a brief photographic look into the past of the area - including what this restaurant looked like in 1935!
Food is pretty much a typical fast food restaurant other than that.
Favorite Dish: Fish and Chips of Course. What else?
On the corner overlooking the Statue of Liberty that is the Alki Beach miniature tribute to this landmark, this restaurant features views looking out over the bay, and some very limited extent the Olympic Mountains. There is a bit of traffic on the street, but it generally isn't enough to obstruct the view. The enclosed, but patio-like seating on the western edge of the restaurant is an interesting touch, but is pretty tight.
I found the service to be better than average at making sure that everyone was satisfied, despite being reasonably crowded at lunch time.
Favorite Dish: I had the Shrimp Quesadilla, knowing full well that what I was going to get wouldn't be quite Mexican style food. However, for $8.99 the taste was good and the proportion reasonable.
