Located next to the Ballard Locks is a Tavern covered with a beautiful freshly painted pastel colored mural depicting the sea with whales, a mermaid, and the Space Needle. It is the perfect mural for The LockSpot Café which is one of the original Old Ballard café’s.
Not only does the LockSpot Café have a vibrant history. They are most known for their World-Famous crispy Fish and Chips. They also have an extensive menu with more than fish and Chips. I asked the owner, Pam Hanson, what would she recommend off the menu for first timers of the LockSpot Café to try. She recommended: the calamari appetizer, the clam chowders, the fish and chips, bacon cheeseburger, the grilled salmon, the seafood fettuccini, and for dessert the bread pudding with bourbon sauce.
The LockSpot Café is currently open taking to-go orders. Customers can order by calling 206-789-4865 or by ordering in-person. Their hours are Monday-Friday 11am-2am and Sunday–Saturday 10am – 2am.
If you’re looking for a place that has fish and chips, rich history, and a welcoming atmosphere, The LockSpot Cafe is the place to be.
As the owner, Pam Hanson said, “The LockSpot Café will be part of the community forever”.
