The Hardware Store Restaurant – Vashon Island

The Hardware Store Vashon Island is a restaurant that features upscale American cuisine. Open everyday for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Vashon Island’s gathering place right in the center of town. Great place for food and cocktails. Back in the day, I use to come to this hardware store with my dad, not to eat mind you, but to get actual hardware. The building is considered a historical building and features a sign outside that says “Today’s special, so is tomorrow.” Which has been hanging up in that store front for as long as I can remember.

I USUALLY get the fried chicken strips when I go to the Hardware Store. Also, if they have it, try the Key Lime pie (curls my toes just thinking about it). My wife does not drink, so she has had a couple of mocktails there that she absolutely loves. 

Since it is right in the center of town, try to get a window seat in the bar, it is great for people watching. They DO get busy, so if you have a larger party, I would suggest contacting them via the form below.

The Hardware Store Vashon Island is a great place to stop if you ride your bike over to Vashon. I am not a biker, but I do see folks that have come over to Vashon Island to ride their bikes stop in at the restaurant all the time. My guess it is a great place to carb up. Speaking of carbs, their beer selection is awesome and often times they feature local beers from many of our great breweries. 

Also, Vashon Island has great cideries on it and the restaurant features them both, Dragon’s Head Cider as well as Nashi Orchards. Both are solid choices after a long ride on the island.
