Last fall, I was very lucky to be introduced to Rory’s of Edmonds, which is now one of my very favorite places. Rory’s offers a full service bar, a menu full of amazing food, and a view of the Sound (it’s right across the street from the ferry terminal). When the weather’s nice, they have a big deck so that you can sit outside and enjoy the fresh air while you have a drink or a meal. For chillier days (I’ve experienced much more of these since discovering Rory’s!), they have a table that surrounds an indoor fireplace. They’ve also got a lot of big TVs, and I spent many a weekend watching the Seahawks games while enjoying drinks and great food. Everyone who works there is super friendly and attentive.
I’ve been to Rory’s enough to have had quite a few different things on their menu, and everything I’ve eaten has been fantastic. I’m a huge fan of their fresh chips and salsa and the Pound of Love, which is a basket of perfectly-seasoned french fries. Meal-wise, my current menu favorite is the Grilled Turkey and Swiss sandwich. While that may sound like a rather tame choice, it’s probably the best sandwich I’ve ever gotten anywhere in the Northwest. What makes it so special is that instead of your usual mayo or mustard, this sandwich has cranberry sauce on it, making it like a leftover Thanksgiving dinner sandwich. Soooo good!
Rory’s is the first place that I can honestly say I’ve become a “regular” at. Right now I am very much looking forward to summer, and I’m excited to enjoy warm weather from their deck!
