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.

We go fairly often and as a result there must be a note on our account saying we don't like seating near the door. We initallly were seated there but after about 2 mins they came back and moved us to a better location. Way-to-go Hardware store!

We used OpenTable for our reservation and were seated right away! It was our anniversary and we were treated extra special by the chefs. The French Onion soup was the best!

The food was OK - I had the fish & chips which were a bit over cooked, and they skimped on the tartar sauce - I had to ask for two extras. My wife had the signature burger - also OK but it lacked flavor overall - no punch. The service was friendly but not very responsive. We waited quite awhile to place our order and then a bit of time for coffee. This place is a local Vashon spot with a nice rustic atmosphere - but the food and service were average on our visit.

We drove here from yelm. We loved the whole experience, from customer service to the food! I had the sea scallops And they were the best I ever tasted! We really enjoyed the open kitchen and watching the chefs work was like a well oiled machine. They were in tune with each other and we could tell they enjoyed their jobs! We'll definitely be back! Awesome job!

Fun place to eat. Food was great, ambiance was fun and pricing was affordable. Easy access from Seattle for a day trip via the Ferry. Would recommend for groups as the dinning room seating was community style at the majority of the tables. Will go back again!

I like the Hardware Store generally, although this time they did not have a booth as I requested and the restaurant is a bit noisy making it harder for me to hear. The booth makes a big difference so I was disappointed not to get one, but I understand there was a computer glitch with the Open Table software.

I've eaten at the Hardware Store many times and while they don't have many vegan/gluten free items, they have in the past always turned up with something for me that was really good. This time, however, I was hassled when the cook refused to make the only item on their menu that fit my dietary requirements. He said it couldn't be prepared before 11am but the menu did not give any such restrictions. When I asked what options I did have, the cook finally said that he'd do it just this once but never again. This put an unpleasant pall over the entire meal and I hope that it doesn't happen again.
