“ Amy’s On The Bay Restaurant & Bar, strive to provide customers with the highest quality meals, at an affordable range of prices with personable service. The restaurant takes pride in choosing wild caught seafood, mostly Pacific Rim, because the restaurant knows there is such a difference in flavor, quality and texture. ”

Science Museum
“Do you or someone you know like Bugs & Reptiles? Well this museum is a MUST VISIT on your list! It may be small but it is packed with fun and interesting insects, bugs and live reptiles! It is also FREE to visit! It is a great place for the kid (or adult who wants to be a kid for a day) in your life! ”

Café
$$
“By now, you are probably learning that I like to drink coffee and eat good food, especially if I can do it with an amazing view! This all-ages pub is a gem! Located in Annapolis right around the corner from downtown Port Orchard, this pub has great food, coffee and a full spirits bar with local brews and distilled liquors. But the best part about this pub, is you can sit on the deck (practically hanging over the bay) and enjoy a panoramic view of Sinclair Inlet. In the summer, we've even seen a pod of transient Orcas playing in the bay in front of the pub. Just amazing! Side note, I also love stopping here on my "long run" days when I do a 6- or 10-mile jog along Bay street. More on that later! ”

Farmers Market
“Farmer's Market is located on the Waterfront Boardwalk in downtown Port Orchard near the Marina from mid April through mid October on Saturdays 9 am - 3 pm. Local flowers, vegetables, food, crafts and more. Love to get fresh clams, mussels, oysters and crab when in season! ”

Boat or Ferry
“Take the Port Orchard Foot Ferry to Bremerton- about a 15 minute ride over to Bremerton- great to have lunch or dinner at Anthony’s on the water. The foot ferry is cash only and $2 per person per ride. ”

Cinema
“One of the last of its kind! The independently-owned Dragonfly Cinema movie theater is set in the heart of old Port Orchard, built in the 1920s and upgraded with comfortable seats, ample leg room, and great popcorn. The marquee changes frequently and show-cases many independent and unique films and also those favorite films from the past! The movies are great but the historic building, in itself, is a really fun place to explore! ”

“Excellent Korean-run "Japanese" restaurant. Stick with the sushi and sashimi if you want authentic fare. The "Korean Chirashi" is the best!”

Café
“Great local coffee shop that has a strong mission to provide opportunities to disenfranchised youth. The barista's are the friendliest in town. The shop has comfy spaces and tables to get your internet on! But it also has my favorite wrap, "the horsebite". Food is fast, fresh and delicious and the soups are home-made and to die-for! And it is located conveniently downtown on the water front if you want to peruse the antique and shabby-chic shops or jump on the Carlisle (foot ferry) for $2 to jet across the bay to visit Bremerton. ”

Food
“Farmer George is famous here on the peninsula. It's a third-generation, unpretentious butcher shop with farm eggs, fresh meats on Thursdays and Fridays. The epitome of local.”
