A word from The Restaurant at Alderbrook
Our location brings out the best in fresh local seafood, dry aged beef, world-class wines and waterfront views - making The Restaurant at Alderbrook a destination in itself.

The interior setting of The Restaurant at Alderbrook takes its inspiration from the outdoors with warm colors of chocolate brown and sage green representing the gardens and lawn of the resort. Floor-to-ceiling windows and multi-levels amplify views of the brilliant shore and snow-capped peaks of the Olympic Mountains.

The cuisine showcases local seafood harvested from Puget Sound and Hood Canal. After all, our shores are encrusted with oysters, our docks lined with mussels, and our sea teems with salmon.

Diner Reviews
  • "With a family of 4, we are very mindful of having the children sit for too long waiting for food. And in this case, food took an extremely long time. The server also took the drink orders for the adults, but left before taking orders for the kids, which was strange. There is a thin line between waiting for fine dining and everyone twiddling their thumbs looking for ways of entertaining the kids once the bread and appetizer is gone. This experience was definitely the latter."

  • "excellent as always. We go to Alderbrook often. They were very, very busy BUT the staff were doing an excellent job. We were told they had 200 more than last years Easter brunch. The food was great as always, eggs benedict were the best we have ever had, shrimp cocktail sauce was so good I asked for the "secret ingredient", not sharing. All in all a very pleasurable experience. I will be going back next month for a "girls" birthday lunch which the four of us "girls" look forward too. "

  • "The restaurant at The Alderbrook is in a spectacular location -- the view is the best part. The food was good but not great. Everything was cooked nicely but every bite needed seasoning. The wait staff was very good but the host seemed inexperienced or disorganized."

  • "I stayed two nights in the lodge. The first evening my dinner was too salty and it was sent back with no problem. I didn't have to wait long for a the replacement meal. The vegetables were substituted for the ones I wanted. Second night I was greeted by name, "Hello, Miss. ..." And the wait staff from the previous evening greets me as well as the manager came to my table to say hello and ask how I was enjoying myself. So gracious everyone. The second evening, once again, I asked for a vegetable replacement and it was done with no issues. I was seated by the window both evenings, it's a lovely view. I will come back. (I'd been twice before a few years ago, the food wasn't as good.)"

  • "I had 3 meals during my stay. Lunch was a disappointment. The waiter ordered the wrong salad even though I asked questions about my choice. There was a long delay while the correct salad was ordered. He apologized & the manager apologized. Did they comp me anything? No. Did they reduce my bill? No. As someone who worked in the food industry for years, this did not sit well with me. Dinner was fine, but nothing to rave about. Breakfast was excellent and our waitress was a gem that time. I do not understand why a restaurant of this caliber does not understand how to treat its customers when they make an error. This left me wary during my next two meals."

  • "The oysters are harvested daily so they are very fresh. Food presentation is very nice. I had the scallops, cooked to perfection and the tiramisu was more than enough for two people. The view of the canal is available from every table. Prices are not for the faint of heart however. The tab for 2, including one cocktail, an order of oysters on the half shell, split salad, 2 fish entrees, and one dessert was $160. If ordering steak, the tab would be @$200."

  • "Was so looking forward to checking this place out. Alderbrook resort is amazing and was cautious about the restaurant. How could a resort be amazing and have good food. Well the dinner was less than spectacular. The bummer is the restaurant was beautiful, the views amazing and the service was great, but the food was not good. My drink, a raspberry cosmo was very good and the salad I ordered, the grilled vegetable salad was good. Oh and the decaf coffee was tasty too. The appetizer of calamari was drenched in a sauce that ruined the calamari, was so disappointing. I always order calamari at restaurants but would not order this again here. The calamari itself was very good but the sauce ruined it."

  • "Our server made me feel like the most important guest she had seen that day. The food was amazing. We shared the crab cakes appetizer. The cakes we perfectly cooked and seasoned. The whole grain accompaniment was an unexpected treat. For dinner I had the rack of lamb which just melted in my mouth! The only thing that was not 100% to my liking was the Brussels sprouts that came with the lamb. The bacon flavor was a bit overpowering and made the sprouts too salty. For dessert, I was brought a complimentary crème brulee for my birthday. It was a delightful end to the meal. We went back for breakfast the next morning. The Croque Madame I had was a fantastic combination I have never had before. We will absolutely be back as soon as possible!"

  • "Travel here for the overall combination of food and ambiance. Having been here several times, we thought the menu choices had been improved with something for everyone. All the tables have a lovely view of the water and mountains. Most of all on this visit was exceptional service which made the visit even more enjoyable. While the location is great for a special occasion, the menu is priced right for an anytime visit."

  • "Ate dinner twice during happy hour, in lounge. Ordered Mediterranean pita/hummus/eggplant, etc. plate: very good. Fish tacos also good. Most other options: fatty. Alway try to find food that is both delicious AND healthy; often hard to do. Had good French 75 (but should have been colder..chilled glass, perhaps?). Servers friendly, professional. Breakfasts were good. Loved citrus Greek yoghurt with granola (house made) and seasonal fruit (sweet and juicy, even in March!) for breakfast. Disappointed with coffee (slightly bitter). Our entrees in dining room: duck and fettucini - good taste but too heavy; rolled, stuffed eggplant dish- too salty and very greasy. Loved baby kale salad! Squash soup also good."

  • "We were pleasantly surprised to find this wonderful restaurant in this small community of Union, WA! The food and service was far above what we expected to find. Very nice!"

  • "The food was very good once we finally got something we would eat and received the food. However, it took a long time between ordering and actually getting the food. We also felt a bit tricked because when we ordered our entrees the waitress asked if we would like soup salad or something else with it, making it sound like it came with it (and she knew we had never been there before). So my husband and i both said salad. When we received the bill this was not the case and it was another $10+ for the salads. we were duped."

  • "4 of us ate at the restaurant twice for dinner and twice for breakfast. Service was friendly and helpful, but rather slow. We all enjoyed the clam chowder's smoky bacon flavor. Other starters we liked: ceviche,Grand Marnier prawns, calamari with a spicy harissa, and the apple pomegranate salad (which was fresh and bright tasting, but could have had more of the oranges described in the menu). All of the entrees we tried were very good; rib steak and scallops were the favorites. Starches and veggies were creative and tasty. Favorite dessert was the Berry Cello. Breakfast and brunch were pretty ordinary. "Home Fries" were just deep fried potato cubes. Croque Madame disappointed with a bland, broken sauce and brioche that was overly sweet."

  • "The atmosphere of the restaurant is lovely and inviting, but the food was not, at least for adults. The children's food was much better than the expensive main courses for adults, the latter a big disappointment. Service was late (not the server's fault, however), and the food was not of the quality we had anticipated. We ate at the restaurant the following evening, however, and ordered salads with shrimp, which were good. The service on the 18th was wonderful, and we felt much better about the restaurant then. You just have to order something simple."

  • "the restaurant was a big disappointment. Our entree, pan seared scallop, were so salty we could hardly eat them. The clam chowder was thick and bland. we will not go back."

  • "My fiance' and I had a great weekend away at the Alderbrook for Valentine's Day. The restaurant has amazing food and the service was so friendly. Our waitress, Bethany, was so accommodating! Even though they don't really have any competition for 100 miles, the service here doesn't miss. We're looking forward to coming back again for another special occasion."

  • "The view is gorgeous and the staff makes you feel important like you are the only people in the restaurant. The food was amazing and makes you think about what you ate there for days!"

  • "This is such a lovely pleace. Our third time having a meal and we have spent the night as a gift from our children. It is peaceful, the wait staff are kind and friendly and attend to their customers well without being in your face. The water views are lovely and the location althought out a ways is a nice drive to get to. I would love to have any meal here a couple times a month. Oh the food? Top notch, speaking as a foodie and with a exec chef and my dining partner... he was very impressed. That is a huge PLUS with us. He is often times not happy with his meal. :-)"

  • "Food was tasty, prepared with care. Oysters were crazy good and local. Only down side is some of the 2 person tables are really placed awkwardly around these large wooden pillars, with the "idea" of giving you the best view, but practically to squeeze you into a small space."

  • "Disappointed in food quality which surprised given positive past experiences. Singleness crab cake lacked flavor - hardly a crab taste at all. Trout was okay - a little dry - and farro/ rice was gummy, tough. Bar was great - nice Hendricks G&T. Waitress seemed unnatural as if she was reading from a script when conversing with us. Relax. Show how much you are enjoying your work!"

  • "You can't refute the convenience of dining at this restaurant while staying at Alderbrook. However, the food is no more than mediocre at best. We started with the kale and pomegranate apple salads and while they were fine, there was nothing truly notable about them. Then we had the seafood cocktail, along with sea scallops and pan fried oysters for dinner. Average in taste and presentation. I felt the seafood cocktail was slathered in too much cocktail sauce and it didn't highlight the freshness of the seafood. The oysters were a bit greasy and didn't have much seasoning. For dessert, we shared the creme brulee and Olympic mountain ice cream. The creme brulee was too thick and the sugar coating tasted bitter. The ice cream was fine."

  • "It was not my first experience eating at the Alderbrook's restaurant, but as usual, it was a wonderful dining experience. I went for New Year's Eve and there was live music in the bar, an excellent menu for the holiday - in addition to their regular menu (which is what I ordered from anyway!), and to top it off, to my surprise, they had for the holiday a party/movie/arts crafts room for children so I was able to enjoy the dinner in adult company (while my kid had her own nook of fun things to do for the hour). However, I have dined for breakfast and dinner with groups that had children there and it was very kid friendly. A wonderful experience for the entire family always, delicious food, great views, and great service."

  • "The dining experience at the Alderbrook Resort is extraordinary. The restaurant is a gem; the staff of the resort and the restaurant are exceptional. Everyone seems committed to making guests --from couples to kiddos-- feel relaxed and special. The service, the location, the attention to detail are all so good and so friendly, you may not want to tell anyone. But it's too special to keep secret."

  • "My girlfriend and I celebrated our anniversary with a stay at Alderbrook and many meals in their restaurant. We received fantastic service from waitress Bethany, who was friendly and incredibly knowledgeable about the menu (and food in general). The staff catered to our many special requests as well. We received welcoming service from Rosario at the front of the house who took great care of our reservation requests, amazing drinks and service from Elizabeth and Megan at the bar, and fantastic meal service from Bethany & staff. Cheers!"

Not over attentive, nor under attentive. The food is Awesome. You must recognize that the prices do reflect such though. 5 Stars all the way around."

  • "We celebrated our wedding anniversary with a one night stay, our first time at the resort. Service was warm, professional and knowledgeable; food was wonderful. We tried the grilled oysters (very fresh and flavorful), and the soup du jour, a rich and creamy cauliflower soup that actually celebrated cauliflower! My husband swooned over the duck carbonara - incredibly rich sauce and tender, moist duck. My only nit is that my chicken entree was a little dry. Our server surprised us with a complimentary creme brûlée for dessert, as an anniversary treat. We were so stuffed we didn't think we'd manage it, but it was so creamy it turned out not to be a problem. Thank you, Alderbrook - we'll be back!"

  • "Nice local resort restaurant with a great view, usually with great food. Have eaten ther for several holidays over the past three years. However this Thanksgiving, they were over booked with not enough wait staff so service was impersonal and slow. Fixed menu was good, but food was cold. Not the great Alderbrook experience we are used to!"
    Dined on 11/28/2013
  • "We have been here a few times for lunch and it seemed a bit pricey but nice open feeling when eating and very good food to good food level. This time for T-day, tables were shoved together so we heard and almost felt our fellow diners. We had three feet from the next table. So it felt more like a diner than an experience for the higher than diner prices. Not sure if we will return. The waitress was friendly but my husbands orders for food became mine. The service was fair but we still gave an okay tip due the person working on a holiday. We felt for the couple on our one side shoved up against the wall, under a big TV on the wall and my hubby ruining any view they had so that the waitress could go by."
    Dined on 11/28/2013
  • "Our overall experience was great. The only complaint is noise level; in fact, the decibels of noise were so high that I had to remove my hearing aids for the duration of our visit to be able to stand it! But our wait person was wonderful; at our request, she did ask the very noisy people waiting for their table who were literally hanging over our banquette to please move over to the bar -- they were actually shouting to each other, but I'm sure the whole room could hear them! And of course, the view from Alderbrook was fabulous, watching the sunset over the Hood Canal and Olympic Mountains!"
