For more than three decades, Arnies Restaurants have stood along the Washington shore like trustworthy lighthouses in Edmonds and Mukilteo. As for which spot has better views, well, you'd have to flip a coin. Color creeps across both dining rooms during sunset dinners. At the Mukilteo location, sweeping vistas of the Puget Sound provide views of Whidbey, Hat, and Camano Islands. In Edmonds, meanwhile, diners can peer out toward the snow-covered Olympic Mountains before diving into one of the restaurant's warm, hearty dishes.
Similar to those stunning backdrops, the food at Arnies exudes the Pacific. Weekly "fresh sheets" highlight the season's best offerings, but meals might begin with steaming bowls of Arnies clam chowder loaded with potatoes and bacon. Seafood platters are especially representative of the region: they feature golden-fried prawns, lingcod, sea scallops, and calamari. Still, the balanced menus boast plenty of land-inspired creations, including filet mignon served with a cabernet demi glace. Extensive wine selections round out the tasty experiences at both locations.
We are very proud of our oysters and pride ourselves on delivering fresh great tasting pacific oysters and clams from our beach to yours as quick as possible.
We offer oysters in many different sizes; from extra small, small, medium all the way up to large and jumbo.
We ship anywhere in the world.
Scott's Bar & Grill doesn't just claim to source ingredients locally, but delivers on that promise throughout its menu. Dungeness Meadow Farm, Uli?s Famous Sausage, and Olympic Mountain Ice Cream are just a few of the sought-after producers throughout Washington and Oregon that make it onto Scott's menus, mainly for the quality of their goods. But Scott's keeps things local in other ways too, inviting in live musicians who play jazz and blues out on the patio every Tuesday evening. When it comes to everyone's favorite part of the night?eating?servers bring out orders of the signature house meatloaf covered in mushroom gravy as well as seared steaks and french dip sandwiches that pair well with the house's beer, wine, and cocktails. Yet the core menu also takes a back seat on the weekends, when brunch is the centerpiece with dishes such as dungeness crab and avocado benedict.

Crab spring rolls. Thai curry penne. Grilled beef tenderloin. At the heart of this cuisine is executive chef Alvin Binuya, a man who has been profiled in and whose recipes have been featured in Seattle Dining!.
Binuya has been immersed in the world of food since he was just a boy, when he would use his parents' kitchen as a culinary laboratory to forge new flavors and antidotes for stale gingerbread men. He went on to hone his skills in culinary school and numerous restaurants before settling at Ponti Seafood Restaurant & Bar. Drawing from this expertise and using locally sourced ingredients, the chef fuses pan-Asian, European, and Pacific Northwest influences to create signature dishes such as grilled wild king salmon.
Ponti's dining spaces echo the villas of Tuscany. Warm colors and window-lined walls surround the restaurant's visitors as they sip selections from an award-winning wine list. Elsewhere, four private dining rooms give scenic views of the giant tarter-sauce bottles that float through Seattle's Ship Canal.
