    Featuring a number of artifacts from the 1950s, and what is probably the original black and white tile floor, the Highway 101 Diner create the environment of a place that time forgot. Almost everything you see here, from the Big Pink Automobile Juke Box to the 1950s movie posters is a piece of the past.This place is VERY popular and crowded on...

    Frances and I lived in Sequim Washington for several years, and our favorite spot to take the grandchildren to dinner was Three Crabs. 9 out of 10 grandchildren enjoyed the "Haliwich" the best. It was a Halibut sandwich with french fries or cole slaw. All of the dishes at Three Crabs were good in my opinion.

    3 crabs is one of the first restaurants we went to when we moved to Sequim. We heard so much about it, we really expected the building to be much bigger than it was. We have been back many times.A year after our daughter died, we had a memorial celebration. The first night we hosted friends and family at The 3 Crabs. The staff and management bent...

  • Quaint Local Eatery

    This restraunt has a very nice setting as many of the local restraunts in the area. I think that the retirment community fuels these type of restaunts. My food was great. I had a typical omlet and the hashbrowns and such. However one of the people I ate with got pretty sick. I've heard from several locals that this restraunt is consistantly pretty...

  • Hi-way 101 Diner

    We had dinner at this wonderful 101 Diner, a classic fifties style diner. Eddy had a ‘Louis Louis’ (bacon-burger) I was more in a swinging mood and took ‘the twist’ (cheeseburger). This really was a great place.

Sequim Nightlife

  • GuthrieColin's Profile Photo

    by GuthrieColin Updated Feb 21, 2005

    The Casino has your typical slot machines and roulette and craps, but inside the Casino their is a bar and a dance floor. It is great to see the forty somethings and older dancing at the same time as the twenty somethings. The night I went their was a Live Funk Band. It was a very calm atmosphere and not too loud either.

    So this is more of a very funny sign than an actual tip. This one of a kind sign (it's really there) is on the way out to the Dungeness Spit. I must in response to Wonka's dedication to me on the waterfall page dedicate this tip to vt'ers willy_wonka and arasnosliw. This one's for you girls.

    Sequim has become a very popular place to grow lavender, and Martha Lane Lavender is a self-pick lavender farm, with a wide selection of types available. The variety of plants means that the lavender here is in bloom all the way into late August, and possibly even September depending on the weather that particular year.The facility isn't huge, but...

  • A Wide Assortment of Lavender Products

    While the farm grows its own lavender, and creates a wide number of lavender products, there is no you-pick part of this lavender farm.Unlike Martha Lane Lavender, there isn't a wide variety of lavender here either, which means that by August you can expect most of the lavender to be gone, with the exception of a small section of the farm that is...

Sequim Tourist Traps

    by indigenous1 Updated Jan 30, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    While visiting area for first time (April 2009), my wife and I finally had a chance to spend the afternoon without the kids. We chose Three Crabs Restaurant because of the many 'raves' we had read about. Unfortunately, we were disappointed. The food was fair, and overpriced. The glass of water they served had a strange, sulfuric smell-and taste. Following our experience, we discovered other diner's reviews which were similar to our own; not very favorable. On a positive note; the restaurant is located in a beautiful site with beautiful views of Dungeness Spit (see photo).
