Restaurant of the Week: Rising Tide Tavern

Conveniently located on Market Street, in the core of Seabrook, you will find Rising Tide Tavern. This trendy, nautical-themed restaurant and bar is just steps from the ocean and walking distance from all that Seabook has to offer.

Owned and operated by Paul Coker and Emily Edeen, this dynamic duo have brought their talents from a top Seattle fine-dining restaurant to the charming beach town of Seabrook. Their expert knowledge in the hospitality industry shines through every aspect from the tavern’s design, craft cocktails and diverse food menu. Sourcing from some of the area’s top producers such as Campfire Farms, Painted Hills Ranch and the Quinault Nation, Rising Tide Tavern offers fresh and local ingredients in every dish.

As you enter the Rising Tide Tavern off of the main street, you will be greeted by an open-concept dining space, perfect for both large or small groups. This is an ideal spot to sit back, relax and soak in the daytime sun. Gather with friends to enjoy the breathtaking sunsets or watch the mixologist at work from the bar top. Every seat captures the beachy aesthetic of the restaurant and a glimpse into your new favorite town. Upon entering Rising Tide Tavern, a large wooden boat will catch your eye; this reclaimed installation is unique to the area and truly a spectacular sight to see. Bright white walls with hints of greenery spread throughout the restaurant, making this Rising Tide Tavern a must when visiting the area.

Once you’re relaxed and ready to dine, start with the Walla Walla sweet onion dip, consisting of caramelized onions and sour cream. The smoked salmon dip is also a great option and perfected with cream cheese and dill. These dishes are both Pacific Northwest classics and served with house-made salted potato chips. Order a cup or bread bowl of the razor clam chowder, which is loaded with flavor. This dish makes for a great starter, side or light lunch option. Pair it with a side of fries and the house-made fry sauce or the winter harvest salad filled with mizuna lettuce, rainbow chard, persimmon, watermelon radish and pumpkin seeds, all tossed with a cider vinaigrette.

Next up, try Rising Tide Tavern’s signature fish and chips fresh from Quinault Pride Seafood. The fish is beer-battered and fried to a golden perfection, then served with a side of sidewinder fries. This beach town classic can be made with ling cod, steelhead trout or local razor clams. If there are children dining in your party, they’ll love the two-piece fish and chips.

Another great option is the “fishwich,” which includes that delicious, golden, crispy beer-battered ling cod and paired with slaw, tartar sauce and cheese on a brioche bun. A great burger can be tough to find, but Rising Tide’s burger is top notch; it’s smashed on the griddle and served on a brioche bun with cheese, butter lettuce, tomato, onion and sauce. This mouthwatering burger will excite every taste bud. Vegetarians can enjoy this with an Impossible burger option, as well.

If you’re lucky enough to arrive at golden hour, you will see the space filled with color from the ocean sunsets. If you are seeking a romantic evening for two or feel as though you want to splurge, take a peek at the “get fancy” section of the menu. The grilled steelhead trout from the mouth of the Quinault River is served with ancient grains and winter harvest veggies. This dish pairs beautifully with the Pacifica, a light and refreshing grapefruit-based cocktail garnished with fresh florals. For those with a vegan or gluten-free dietary preference, try the locally foraged mushrooms, melted atop grits with a sherry broth reduction. This dish is bursting with rich aromas and lots of flavor that will leave you wanting more.

Aside from the stunning restaurant space, Rising Tide Tavern’s friendly staff will make your experience a memorable one. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself visiting this establishment frequently during your Seabrook stay. Open daily from 11:30 a.m. to 8 p.m., you are able to enjoy lunch, dinner or takeout.
