I’m always on the lookout for a good Happy Hour. And by Happy Hour, I mean cheap drinks and good food priced well.
Foodie Friday: Secret Cove in Anacortes
Secret Cove has the best Happy Hour in the small town of Anacortes, Washington. And, it’s on the water next to Guemes Channel.
Happy Hour is from 3-7 p.m. Monday-Saturday and 11:30 a.m.-7 p.m. on Sunday.
Happy Hour includes $3 well drink specials that rotate daily (Mon. Rum, Tues. Scotch, Wed. Whiskey, Thurs. Tequila, Fri. Gin, Sat. Vodka), a selection of appetizers that ranges from $4, $6 and $8, and daily specials.
Oh, did I mention they have a west-facing outdoor porch? On a sunny summer day, this is the place to go in Anacortes.
After entering the restaurant, head up the sea life painted stairwell to the bar. Guests seat themselves and most of the time it borders on full. In the winter, I like the corner window seat and outside on the porch in the summer. The staff is friendly and if they aren’t swamped the service is excellent.
My go to Happy Hour appetizers are:
$6 popcorn shrimp served with their house dill tartar and cocktail sauce (no longer on menu)
$8 chicken Caesar salad
$8 BBQ brisket sliders with coleslaw
$6 hummus platter
My husband likes:
$8 hot wings
$8 mac & cheese with applewood smoked bacon (no longer on menu, they now have a $6 mac & cheese with cavatappi noodles)
The $8 loaded nachos are enough for two people to share.
