If humans are mostly made of water, and fish traditionally inhabit water, fish should naturally occur in the human body. Fix this gap in nature’s logic with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get $45 worth of fresh Northwestern cuisine at Arnies Restaurant, which features one seaside location in Edmonds and one in Mukilteo.
Drop in to either Arnies location for lunch to feast on classic noontime sea bounty such as the halibut and chips, beer-battered and fried with a side of ginger coleslaw and roasted-onion tartar sauce ($16.25). Dinner at Arnies is similarly pelagic, so launch a mouth voyage from land with a starter of applewood-smoked harissa ribs glazed with Asian chili-molasses sauce ($12.75), and then trawl the depths of savoriness with a fisherman's platter (golden-fried prawns, lingcod, sea scallops, and calamari with cocktail, roasted-onion, and tartar sauces, $21). Veteran sea eaters and greentongues alike can rejoice in the multi-legged delights of Arnies' annual Fall Festival of Prawns, which celebrates the cooler weather of Northwestern autumn with a special prawn-centric menu. A bevy of appetizers, soups, salads, and sandwiches are available for perusal, as well as 10 different delicious prawn dishes for the main course. Check out some of the earlier prawn recipes and zip into either location between October 6 and November 16 to experience this year's prawn-packed offerings.
Arnies restaurants feature incredible waterfront views of Puget Sound and atmospheric mountain vistas; the setting is ideal for a romantic dinner watching ominous storms blow in, or for flattering light whilst devouring tiny marine creatures.

- We eat at both the Edmonds and the Mukilteo Arnie's about 2 or 3 times a year and always have enjoyed it. The food is great - especially the undecided shrimp and the Lingcod – EvergreenStater, TripAdvisor
- Armies has the best happy hour of any restaurant in Edmonds! Nothing is better than the house salad lettuce wraps or tacos for a late lunch!!!! – Amanda Mahoney-Fernandes, Urbanspoon
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 Northwest. 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 and a full bar round out the tasty experiences at both locations.
