Dad's is a must visit when you come to Anacortes. All the meats are Applewood smoked and prepared in house or at the trailer on the corner of 22nd and Commercial.

Breakfast: The Brisket Hash, Savory French Toast with Jalapeno's are a must have. I must not leave out the Biscuits and Gravy. (It's really all good)

Lunch: Brisket Ruben, any Salad, The Cuban and all the Burgers are wonderful. Fletcher and the crew created fries that are on a whole new level of wonderful.

Check it out, you wont be disappointed.

Tried this restaurant after having several friends recommend it. It's not a huge place so there can be a wait on busy days. We went there for a hearty breakfast after doing an hike at the Anacortes' Washington Park. Menu is on a chalkboard on the wall, pretty good section of things. Service was a bit slow and took a long time for the food to arrive. Maybe they were just having one of those in-the weeds days? Food was okay, but nothing memorable, in fact I can't remember what I had. Ambience of the place is cool, there is a lunch box collection high on a shelf near the back of the store, and a bunch of other memorabilia. Rates high on vibe, average on the food.

Far more than just "protein on a plate", staff take obvious pride in service, guest satisfaction and an excellent, hearty breakfast..

Customers can bring a picture of their Dad and it is put on the wall. Biscuit and gravy is the best ever. All meat is smoked on site. Super friendly environment!
