My family used to go down for the Kite Festival when I was a kid. The booths during this time are awesome. Best sweet corn I’ve ever had for $1 per cob. Plus teriyaki chicken on a stick, vanilla cotton candy, elephant ears, and everything else weird kids like.
The last time I was here I got a “Texas donut” the size of my head for $1.45 at a bakery on the main street.over 5 years ago
Every time I’ve been here, usually just when Sunfish is closed on Mondays and I’ve forgotten, the cod has been dry, the chips have been mediocre, and the tartar sauce has been terrible. My dad says they used to be good until they changed their cooking procedures ages ago.
The best part is the upper seating area can have good views.

I went here when I was a kid while visiting my uncle and aunt in California.
There’s a ray pool and they give you squid to feed to them. I turned around to talk to someone for a minute when one sucked up the side of the pool to try to get the squid from me. Scared the living hell out of me.over 5 years ago
No matter what 10 Things I Hate About You tells you, there is no paintball at Gas Works Park.
My dad’s friend used to own a kite shop near Gas Works. When my brother and I were younger he would take us here every weekend after we went to the Varsity Inn across from the kite shop for breakfast and shopped in the aforementioned kite shop.
It’s definitely one of the most interesting parks in Seattle.over 5 years ago
This is the most expensive elevator ride in Seattle. The food in the revolving restaurant is terrible quality for the prices they charge.
I’ve lived in Seattle my entire life and I’ve only been up there once or twice. My dad was at the top during the Columbus Day storm (his birthday) right after it was built.
On a side note, the first thing I would do if I managed to obtain the Space Needle would be rev up the engine and make that revolving restaurant go.over 5 years ago
This place is run by these two awesome Greek guys. To this day they still call my dad Oscar because 20+ years ago, when the shop was on Fauntleroy instead of Alki, he used to go in with his bird (named Oscar, could speak in the same Lurch-esque voice my dad has) on his shoulder.
This is the first restaurant I went to as a baby at nine days of age. Clearly, I didn’t have any fish and chips at that time.
Since then it’s been the restaurant we normally go to for all birthday dinners.
Get the cod and chips — it’s the best.over 5 years ago
