This summer, I found myself in Suquamish, Wa. twice. Each time I dined at Sully’s Bistro & Bar, which is within walking distance of the Suquamish community dock. What drew me in? First, was the outdoor patio, which has views of Agate Pass, Port Madison, and Elliot Bay. Second, was the friendly service and great specials.
When you walk off the walkway from the Suquamish community dock, all of the businesses are on the right side of the street. Sully’s Bistro & Bar is the green building with the tiki umbrellas on their outdoor patio. Their menu has a variety of pub fare like burgers, sandwiches, soups, fries and onion rings, as well as, a few entree-sized items like the Big Fat Rib Eye for $25 and Sully’s Fish and Chips for $17. They also make everything to order and locally source their products.
Where: 7234 NE Pkwy, Suquamish, WA 98392
What: Lunch & Dinner
Specials: Monday through Friday is a daily lunch special of a 1/4 lb. burger, fries, and a domestic draft for $10. On Tuesday, beef or chicken tacos are $4.50, and the fish taco is $6.50. We’ve heard this is very popular and creates a line out the door.
Hours: Monday to Thursday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 12 a.m., Sunday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Happy Hour from 4 to 6 p.m.
This is what I ordered.
Salads and Specials at Sully’s Bistro & Bar
They have five salads on their Green Things menu. I ordered Sully’s spinach salad ($14) and added grilled prawns for $4. The salad comes with red onions, blue cheese crumbles (which I substituted for parmesan), candied walnuts, apples, and cranberries with raspberry vinaigrette. I’m a fan of salads already, but the addition of the grilled shrimp, which thankfully my server recommended, revitalized my love of shrimp in salads.
The fish taco special came with cod, tomatoes, lettuce and pineapple slaw on a fried flour tortilla ($6.50). At first, I wasn’t sure one taco would be enough ‒ I was wrong. It was the perfect size for lunch. The cod balanced nicely with the pineapple slaw and gave it a slightly sweeter profile and the fried tortilla gave it a nice crispy crunch.
Monday through Friday, the burger special is a 1/4 lb burger with all the fixings, fries and a domestic beer ($10). My dining companion said this burger was the perfect size for lunch, and of course, since it comes with a beer, even better.
