1. Matia Kitchen & Bar
123 North Beach Rd, Eastsound, WA
"Eat here. Drink here. Archipelago food culture at its best while preserving a sense of time and place." - Matia Kitchen & Bar via Instagram
You need to make reservations (with a deposit) to get a table at Matia. They are only open for dinner on Wednesdays thru Sundays, from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. Menu prices will of course vary depending on what’s available the night you go. Expect to spend anywhere from $17 for a salad up to $42 for an entree. The menu changes accordingly but you can look at sample menus here.
Matia does have a lounge where all ages are welcomed but the website says they have limited availability when the lounge is open. If you are over 21 and just want to grab some drinks, you do not have to make reservations to go to the bar. They also have a patio!
There are two upcoming events at Matia in October that you might want to attend, the Chicory Harvest Dinner and a curated dinner paired with beverages from Fair Isle Brewing.
