Cape Disappointment State Park


We’re happy to make recommendations for some of the best dining available on the west coast.

The 42nd Street Café & Bistro has been a consistent favorite over the years for Andersen’s guests. The eclectic menu satisfies seekers of traditional roadhouse meals like pot roast, chicken fried steak and fried razor clams. They usually do a nightly special featuring a fish dish. In the morning, try their bacon maple waffles. Mmmm. They are open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Jimella and Nanci’s Market Cafe, north of Andersen’s in Klipsan at 217th, is the latest venture of the gals who owned The Ark… the restaurant that put the Long Beach Peninsula on the map decades ago. When they first opened after their retirement from The Ark, they sold fresh seafood, some ready-to-cook entreés, and wonderful specialty items. The demand from their fans for “more” led to their current offerings of delicious fresh and seasonal dishes for lunch or dinner.

The Lost Roo has become a favorite of our guests.  Lots of menu choices, big screen TVs, and ample room to accommodate large groups.  Prime Rib Thursdays are very popular.

Pickled Fish perched atop the Adrift hotel has the best (only) view in town!  The menu varies using many locally purveyed ingredients and the craft cocktails impress. Live music nightly.   20% gratuity is automatically added to your bill. Open until 10pm.

Gallettis  Our go to for good pasta. our favorites are fettuccine with real alfredo sauce, chicken parmesan, lasagna, and spaghetti with meatballs. Discover their alter ego- Metro express cafe, serving up breakfast like excellent scratch biscuits and gravy.

Hungry Harbor    KIDS favorite!  Great fish and chips, gigantic burgers and more, there is something to please everyone.  Even with ample indoor seating and dog-friendly outdoor seating they offer take-out!  They also have a Sunday breakfast buffet. We love their seasonal decor and displays.

The Depot Restaurant  Built in the original train depot, featuring fine dining with international wines, on-tap microbrews, a display kitchen, heated outdoor deck, and special events ranging from wine dinners to Jazz events. October through June the restaurant dedicates Wednesdays to ‘Burger Night’.

The Cove  Located on the golf course,  you can play and eat or just go to dine.  A locals favorite for sandwich and salad plates, we hear raves about their reuben. They offer delicious artistic dinners on weekend nights too.

Serious Pizza  Two locations in Illwaco, indoor and outdoor seating, and not just pizza. They make their own dough and bake in wood fire ovens. Amazingly they have gluten free options!
