Description
The Fireside Restaurant is located within the Inn at Port Ludlow. The Dining Room is open from 7am to closing every day of the week. Chef Dan Ratigan prepares locally sourced menus and works closely with the local farms, artisans and fisheries to create a Daily Dinner Menu. We are open for Happy Hour EVERY DAY from 4-6pm featuring tapas style food options and daily beverage specials. The wine list is award winning - most recently with the 2017 Wine Spectator Best of Award. Holidays and special events are featured throughout the year including winemaker dinners, cooking classes and other "foodie" events. Seasonally, guests enjoy the Veranda overlooking Port Ludlow Marina and the Olympic Mountains. Guests can stay over and enjoy a "farm package" where they visit three local farms, bring the basket back and Chef will prepare a meal from the ingredients provided.Private parties are invited to enjoy the private rooms as well. Reservations are recommended.
