Restaurant Reviews

My sweet mother loves to go to Downriggers. She lives in Sequim, but every time she needs to go into Port Angeles, she calls and says, "Karen! Would you like to come with me to Downrigger's for lunch?!?"

What's not to like?! They serve a satisfying Crab Louie, and we already know their fish and chips are excellent.  According to Mom: "I love that Downriggers Restaurant is on the water. The view is wonderful. I like to watch the ferry come in or go out, as well as all the other boat traffic in the harbor."

Mom's favorite menu items are their clam chowder and soup-in-a-bread-bowl. But about the hamburgers, which she has ordered many times, she says, "Their hamburgers are really good, too, but they are too high to get your mouth around." She must not mind that too badly...!
