Everett, Wash. – A new dining option at the Port of Everett is making access to fresh seafood even better. On Saturday, May 4, Port tenant Anthony’s Restaurants is opening Woody’s, a walk-up window adjoining its Woodfire Grill location and the Port’s new Commodore Plaza in the South Docks.A photo of Anthony's Woodfire Grill and their new take out window Woody's Take Out

Woody’s will serve up a select variety of quick bites to waterfront guests Friday – Sunday, 11:30 a.m. – 7 p.m. Crispy panko wild Alaska true cod ‘n chips, Dungeness Crab and Oregon coast shrimp toast, smoked salmon chowder and Bering Sea cod burger are among the menu options.

“What a welcome addition to the waterfront,” Port of Everett Commissioner Tom Stiger said. “As a boater myself, it’s nice to have an alternative to dining in when I want to grab something quick and get out on the water, but boater or not, this is something visitors have wanted for some time. And what better timing than with the opening of Commodore Plaza.”

The walk-up feature was prompted by the Port’s recent investment to create Commodore Plaza east of the restaurant. Plaza construction wrapped up in April, transforming the area into a community space with grassy areas and hardscapes. The open layout was designed to accommodate small gatherings and events. The Plaza, named to honor the Port’s yachting and naval community, is one of three new public spaces recently completed by the Port as part of its Waterfront Place Central development. The other two projects include four new kite shelters; two at Boxcar Park in the Central Docks and two at Jetty Landing in the North Docks featuring colorful sail cloths over picnic tables at water’s edge.

"We are so excited to be able to offer our guests and those in the nearby boating community another avenue to experience our fresh, Pacific Northwest fare through Woody's," said Dakin Wanquist, General Manager of Anthony's Woodfire Grill and Woody's. "We will plan on serving a number of our classic Anthony's Woodfire Grill items in quick, grab-and-go style to make it easy for those who are looking to take a picnic lunch down to the marina or to take back onto their boats for dinner! We are so grateful to the Port of Everett for all of their support and continued partnership throughout the years and are very excited to introduce Woody's to the residents in Everett!"

Anthony’s Woodfire Grill is also undergoing renovation of its exterior deck that overlooks the Marina, anticipated for completion this spring. Last summer the restaurant interior got a refresh as well, including a menu re-design, new bar, updated dining room finishes and an additional dining room fireplace.
