Seattle Great Wheel and restaurants are now open

Jun 24 2020, 12:15 pm

Pier 57 has been reopened in response to Phase 2 of the Governor’s Safe Start Plan, meaning that the Seattle Great Wheel and some restaurants are back up and running.

New guidelines are in place to welcome guests at both the Great Wheel and to safely welcome back visitors to The Crab Pot and Fisherman’s Restaurant & Bar.

Seating at the restaurants is available on a first come, first served basis and available inside at 50% capacity and on the waterfront patios with social distancing enforced, and guests visiting the Seattle Great Wheel will receive a private gondola for their party.

“Strolling the Seattle waterfront is a classic Seattle staple for any local’s summer bucket list, and fresh seafood with a view of Puget Sound is no doubt something that many have missed while staying home,” says Michael Griffith, director of operations for Great Western Pacific Inc., who owns and operates Pier 57.

Cloth face coverings are required for entrance at restaurants and for use while not seated at a dining table.

“Our family feels incredibly fortunate and grateful to be able to once again open our doors to share the freshest seafood and classic waterfront views with the city.”

In addition, The Salmon Cooker’s open-air walkup window will continue to serve a full menu of fish tacos, smoked to order steelhead, halibut, Copper River Salmon and more available for ordering at the open-air takeaway window or online, while the Alaskan Sourdough Bakery provides take-out options

Pirates Plunder is also open for gifts and toys, adhering to the state’s guidelines for masking, sanitizing, and distancing.
