We stayed on Vashon Island for 10 days, and had lunch at the Hardware Store 4 times! The food and service were excellent. My husband and his friend raved about the clam chowder - "just about the best I've ever had". I loved the fish tacos and the parmesan truffle fries.
We thoroughly enjoyed our meals. Loved the spicy margarita! Fun place with good food
We had a window table in the bar area and enjoyed people watching thru the window and being out of the fray of the middle of the dining room. The food was delicious and I had the biggest margarita I've ever had. Service was prompt, the bar tender was efficient and friendly, and we will return.
Great experience, good food, great service. It was my mom's 85th birthday. She enjoyed the experience and the atmosphere of the restaurant. Parking is a little challenging, yet free.
Great burgers, brew and hard cider.
I had company from out of town & took them to breakfast before they headed for the ferry. Hardware Store is always dependable. Good food, good selection & as quick as they can be for a Sunday morning.
The food punches above it’s class, and is inexpensive compared to Seattle. Honestly, it’s the only reason I want to go to Vashon. I appreciate that they repurposed the old building for one that really embraces community.
The spinach and kale are never consistent.
It is always too loud but otherwise good. The menu hasn't changed in years so that could be improved.
Service is consistently exemplary, food portions are generous but not overwhelming, and the overall vibe is very welcoming and comfortable. Original art throughout the restaurant which changes frequently makes each visit unique. Whether an island resident or just a day-tripper, THS is not to be missed!
The fried chicken was the worst meal I've ever had. It was so rubbery and you could almost taste each tendon. It had to have been frozen meat. I am so disappointed and shocked in how bad this was, when it was a $135 meal that was a very special night out coming from Seattle.
I never leave bad reviews so I am shocked to do this. We dined at the Hardware store on Fathers Day after spending a wonderful weekend on Vashon Island.
After being seated immediately, it took 10 minutes to take our drink order, the two tables behind us who came in after us got their drinks and appetizers before we got our drinks and even gave an order.
25 minutes later my daughters chicken strips came out before our appetizers were delivered and our meal didn’t come out till about a half hour later minus the clam chowder we ordered. After being promised it was on its way it was delivered another 20 minutes later.
My wife had the salmon ponzu bowl and the salmon was cold and had obviously been under the heat lamp for some time.
I rack this up to terrible service, we got a bad server and it showed. She never came and asked how we were doing and rushed past several times without even acknowledging us.
It was not worth the money and we will not return.
I've been to Hardware before and had a great experience. This time we waited about 45 minutes for our burgers, served after another table who ordered steaks. Our burgers were over cooked and the staff didn't do anything to fix the situation (e.g. notify the manager or offer to re-make the food). It was less busy than the first time I ate there. Staff also didn't check back to offer drink refills; we had to ask.
I brought an out of state friend because I was sure it would be a good experience and great food, but it was overall a disappointment.
Great as usual :)
I really enjoyed my time at The Hardware Store Restaurant. Our server was very attentive, and we never ran out of water. It was really great food and usually, I can't finish my whole plate but it was so good that I did. I will definitely be going again!
Our waiter was amazing!
Great little place. Come here every time I come to Vashon. Even though one of the reservations we made had been cancelled, staff quickly rejigged to get a table for our group of ten set up.
Always friendly service and good food. A little loud tonight.
Jana is the best!
Food is ALWAYS good here. I think for the price the portions (especially dinner could be a bit more generous). The service was okay (not great), which I’m sure was due to the lunch hour rush.
Good food, creative cocktails. It's a large open room, so it tends to be on the louder side, but I would recommend it for a good meal.
Always reliably high-quality food and service at The Hardware Store. Never disappointed.
When I bring people to the island the HWS is almost always open, while a lot of restaurants aren't open 7 days a week. Also, the food never disappoints and the service and ambiance is always good. The daily specials are generally quite good.
Always the best on the island!! Try the GF blueberry pancakes...even if you aren’t GF‼️‼️
We usually try and visit The Hardware Store when on Vashon. The food is consistently delicious, service less so. But the chowder alone is worth the visit!
Loved the menu options, it was hard to pick just one. Settled on the omelet which was excellent.
This place is so loud that it's difficult to have a conversation. It just has really poor acoustics. I could understand if the food was amazing but it's just ok. The prices are too high for what you're getting and the service can be hit or miss. This place used to be reliably good but it's gone down hill the last couple of years and now provides a reliably frustrating dining experience.
Great time with friends. Perfect place to enjoy the company and the Hardware Store.
What a fun evening we enjoyed at The Hardware Store! Food, drinks and FRIENDS! How can you beat it!
Met a friend for a late dinner and discussion. Crab cakes and brussel sprouts are always good. Had a great rapport with my server. Another place to enjoy on Vashon!
Very tasty breakfast. This donut was amazing!
Excellent Food at reasonable prices. Service was exceptional! Great presentations made dishes even more appealing.
Server didn’t clear the salad bowls or appetizers. Generally slow service and menu that never changes.
Mother’s Day brunch nice menu good choices
Yes highly recommend but get reservations !!!
Mother’s Day was Great. Good food. Great service!!
Each night they have wonderful specials that really hit the spot
I was a little disappointed with the menu. It seemed more pub food than restaurant food. It would have need nice to see a salmon or steak entree.
Our go-to spot on the island, when we can afford a little more expensive than average meal. Bit of a noisy, bistro atmosphere - rustic decor, but comfortable. Love the original art throughout the restaurant. Food is always first-rate, with some very creative daily specials. Awesome for breakfast, as well.
Our meal was interesting and delicious, and the service was great.
Great place for all occasions. The Hardware Store provides a dining experience that is not available at any other establishment on Vashon Island. Comfortable surroundings, varied menu, centrally located, easy parking and a friendly waitstaff.
