Johnnyblegsbroke the story in the WSB Forums – the new West Seattle Bowl restaurant, Highstrike Grill, is now open. Check out the forum thread, which even includes an early review. They don’t open till 3 pm, so we’ll have to go back for a peek inside; the menu’s posted by the door, though, if you want a preview (we took some photos we hope to add if they’re clear enough). Their website’s not up as of this moment but they are on Facebook – go here. Highstrike Grill opens less than four months after first word that its predecessor, Terrace West Chinese Restaurant, would close and be replaced. ADDED 2:04 PM: Short news release just in from West Seattle Bowl owner Andrew Carl:

HIGHSTRIKE Grill opens today with a menu that will excite not only bowlers at the West Seattle Bowl, but others who love fresh, high-quality burgers, steaks, pizza and seafood.

Chef Ian Joyce brings his experience at Anthony’s Homeport and The Art Institute of Seattle’s Culinary school and has created signature dishes that are mouthwatering, hand-crafted and modern.

“Whether you want a quick appetizer, dessert or a full meal – I have created a menu that will satisfy any craving and leave you wanting more.” said Chef Joyce.

Recreating the restaurant is part West Seattle Bowl’s ongoing commitment to provide a great experience for customers; from families and league bowlers to team building events and parties. The transformation started several years ago and includes new lanes, new scoring and an easy, online reservation system.

For a full menu visit Highstrikegrill.com. West Seattle Bowl has been providing a fun venue for bowling since 1948.

ADDED 6:03 PM: Christopher Boffoli took photos for WSB inside the newly opened restaurant:

He also confirms – as noted in comments – the website’s up; here’s the link to the menu.

    Seems up now. Definitely a “work in progress” (doesn’t render too well on Firefox) but it’s up.

    *snf* I’m sure the new grill will be great, but I miss Terrace West.

    I wish they were open for lunch, but hopefully I will get a chance to try them some evening after work. Best wishes!

    A number of folks that I know also said they wish that HSG was open for lunch. Hopefully, that will happen in a few weeks. I’ve also heard they might add a weekend brunch in the coming weeks. We had dinner there last night and enjoyed it. The mahi tacos were great! The burgers are huge and yummy.

    No offense to anyone, but sounds like exactly what we don’t need…another high priced she-she acting restaurant with a bunch of she-she acting customers. Give me a Mom-and-Pop ANY day of the week. Yawn!
