However, there is only a small harvest of restaurants that will really bring you closer to the water and make your stay there personal. Whether you want to enjoy a ferry or a boat, these open air locations will make you say “wow” before a drinks order is taken over by the restaurant host. And if you sense you are going to step out from under the deck umbrella and be exposed to the water, we have several locations for you to consider.

The 100 Pound Clam
Dan Bugg introduced The 100 Pound Clam on South Lake Union during the last season. The fishing hut has a window for outdoor walks and lots of outdoor seats.
