Where to eat on the Olympic Peninsula

You won't find big-city dining, but these homey spots will fuel all your peninsula adventures.

The Halfway House diner, Brinnon: Diner food and delicious pies.

Geoduck Restaurant and Lounge, Brinnon: Burgers and beer star at this friendly spot, which is technically a “biker bar,” but children are allowed in the restaurant and on the deck overlooking Hood Canal.

Gear Head Deli, Quilcene: Fill up on freshly made sandwiches and other tasty eats at this new spot in Quilcene; there’s a small park across the street where wiggly children can run their energy off.

Adagio Bean and Leaf, Sequim: Find premade sandwiches, coffee and ice cream in a space that looks like Hogwarts.

Thriftway, Forks: Pick up last-minute groceries and don’t miss the delicious fried chicken at the deli counter.

Three Rivers Resort Restaurant, La Push: The resort also has a rustic lodge and campground; the restaurant’s shakes and burgers are tasty (try the Werewolf Burger), and no vampires are allowed.

Hard Rain Cafe, Forks: This quirky gift shop cafe at the entrance to the Hoh Rain Forest serves terrific salmon burgers.
