I am looking for a restaurant anywhere from the Everett, WA area UP NORTH to the Canadian Boarder. Specifically, great STEAMED CLAMS (steamers, not razors, please).

Any recommendations are greatly welcomed and appreciated! If it is a little hole-in-the-wall with awesome food, the better!!

Thank you!

The absolutely best steamed clams are at the Front Street Grill in Coupeville, WA on Penn Cove, Whidbey Island, WA. Their Coconut Green Curry Mussels from Penn Cove are even better. We were there for lunch when Tom Douglas (probably the best restauranteur in the NW) brought a tour group there for lunch.

I raise my own Pacific oysters (6,500), Manilla clams (12,000), Mediterranean mussels (15,000) and geoducks (35) on my beach. I go there when the tides are not favorable.

Go there.

Coupeville has gotten too ....... yuppie, I lived there 23 year on acreage near Admirals cove. Ferry rides too expensive and Deception Pass too crowded.

I'm a bit baffled about how expensive ferry rides ($3.50/person, $1.75/senior for a walk-on to Port Townsend from Coupeville (Keystone). . . cheap for the experience) and crowded Deception Pass (20 miles to the North, which is another great and worthwhile experience) has anything to do with great steamed clams?

Take the ferry to Port Townsend for the afternoon and visit Deception Pass State Park on your way to Coupeville. I've lived in the area for nearly 50 years and haven't been overwhelmed by yuppies yet.

Sometimes, especially in the winter, the tides are not low enough for me to wade out to my bi-valves without needing a snorkel, or if the tides are low enough (0.00 feet or lower) they are in the middle of the night, and I lose interest because it is dark and blowing horizontal rain.

The tides on our bay can range up to 14 feet from high to low. I'll try to attach a tide chart in my next post.

The oysters are really good for our bay, as 1 mature oyster can filter 65 gallons of water in 24 hours. My 3 neighbors and I have planted over 150,000 bi-valves in the last 5 years.
