While visiting Washington I wanted to make sure we hit some of spots near the neighborhood. My father mentioned Boathouse 19 at the pier so we headed down there. The restaurant is located at a marina and has a great view of the sound and Narrows Bridge.
We sat inside because the weather was in the 80’s and the sun already gave Shelby a little burn earlier. The place was packed and we just made happy hour. We tried a few drinks and got the calamari appetizer. The calamari was great; I can honestly say it was some of the best I’ve had. I really wanted dungeness crab while I was in the area so I ordered a 1/2 lb portion as my entree. Shelby had the fish tacos, my dad ordered the fried cod and our friend had the 9 Alarm burger.
When my plate came out I was little surprised to see only half a crab sitting on my plate (with fries.) I asked our server is that was it and she apologized and said yes, that they even weigh them before serving. The crab was good but the portion was silly—especially for $24. Everyone else seemed to enjoy their food well enough. My dad said he really enjoyed the cod.
I’d go again and try some of the other things on the menu, but I won’t order the crab the next time. If you’re in the area check it out, we lucked out with the weather and maybe next time we’ll hit the deck.
