First version of list, published 11/21/2019:

Here are the West Seattle restaurants and bars-with-food that have told us – so far – they’re planning to be open on Thanksgiving (Thursday, November 28, 2019). Names are linked to websites when available. PLEASE note, in most cases, this is what we were told by phone a week before the holiday – we won’t necessarily be notified if there’s a change, so check first! (And if you have a change/addition – please let us know ASAP – westseattleblog@gmail.com or 206-293-6302 text/voice – thank you!)

We are still waiting for a final answer from a few places, so we might have additions – check back. Again, we compile this list as a service, but an establishment might change its mind, so if you find something on this list NOT open – or something open that’s not on our list – please let us know ASAP so we can update! Thank you.

P.S. If you’re just looking for Thanksgiving coffee – we’re listing some options in the Thanksgiving section of the WSB West Seattle Holiday Guide. (The guide is also where you will find non-restaurant free community Thanksgiving dinners listed.)

Winter Wander Along Longfellow Creek @ Camp Long
Dec 8 @ 12:30 pm – 3:30 pm

Fall nature outings are open for registration now!  Sign up for the popular nighttime walks, bird tours, mushroom walks, and so much more…

Winter Wander Along Longfellow Creek at Camp Long.

Longfellow Creek is a major waterway in West Seattle. It is also a little piece of the wild in the middle of the city. Coho salmon migrate up this waterway; beavers build dams and lodges on this creek; owls hunt for food along this artery. Explore a portion of this urban wilderness with a Seattle Urban Nature Guide. Look for seasonal changes and get to know some of your wild neighbors.

Be prepared to do some hiking over uneven terrain on this program.

Ages 6 and older. All children must be accompanied by an adult.

Everyone attending the program must be registered.

Meet the leader at the Camp Long Lodge.
