Myhre's Restaurant

After one visit, I'm very enthusiastic about Myhre's Restaurant. I can't help it, I love authentic diners, and Myhre's is the oldest working restaurant in Kitsap county. At least according to the waitress.

I know you're hungry, so we'll get right to the food. It's exactly what you'd expect from an old diner. Exactly. For instance, in the chicken sandwich the chicken is deep fried. Also, the side of fries is bigger than the sandwich.

French Fries. Oh, and a chicken sandwich

I have to say, that chicken sandwich seemed slightly small. But the quality was higher than I expected. It evened out. I came away perfectly satisfied.

Another for instance: Rakka said this potato salad was just like her grandma used to make. No faint praise there. It has big chunks of egg.

The tuna had noticeable chunks of pickles. As if to prove conclusively the dinerism of the establishment, they were the same pickles as the ones next to the sandwich.

It takes more than food, however, to make a really dinery diner. The Cafe has an attached Terrace Room, and a skinny bar sandwiched in between. Nothing says diner like attached bar. Nothing says sixties makeover like attached 'Terrace Room'. Unfortunately it wasn't open at noon on Saturday.

Ok, here's a little more of the interior. Note the country flavor. Do you not love this place?

I do (love it). Reasonable food at reasonable prices in a real diner. What more could you ask for? How about I throw in at least one boat ride to get you there, which will be the easiest transport (unless you live in port orchard).

It's about time you post here. No, I don't consider a post about brownies & iced-tea to count.

The only Seattle food blog that mattered is now the only food blog in Kitsap!

Myhre's sounds great. We need to get out and visit you guys so we can try it out. Myhre's or your grill.

@Chris. It was iced coffee. Pay attention, sheesh!

But you're right, you should come over. What are you waiting for?

@santos, the Kibbitz room sounds great. I'll go to LA just for that!
