The Old Edison in Edison, WA
From Bellingham, take Chuckanut Drive to Edison for a scenic excursion. When you get there, stop at The Old Edison. This historic restaurant was established in 1934 and has provided good food and drink to locals and travelers alike.
The Edison has two things I really love, beer and oysters. The restaurant has 15 beers on tap, now that's a little bit of heaven. You can get oysters as an appetizer or a meal. Of course, there are steaks, burgers, salads and other good stuff -- but the oysters are for me. Prices are very reasonable and the oldtime casual atmosphere makes it comfortable. Want to eat outdoors on a sunny day or warm evening, there's a huge grass area with tables out back.
Edison may be a little off the main road, but it is well worth the trip. If you are heading north or south on I-5 take the Bow-Hill exit and head west (click here for directions). You can't miss it. -- Margy
