Boat or Ferry
“Ditch the car in Seattle and take a cheap ferry ride with amazing views to Bremerton. Just of the dock check out the USS Turner Joy destroyer from the Vietnam War Time. ”

Seafood Restaurant

“The atmosphere here cannot be beat. Tucked under the Manette bridge, you'll get an amazing view of the water and ferries. Candlelit tables and adorable paned glass windows to gaze through if you sit inside, or fun, cheerful colored umbrellas and a relaxed vibe if you sit on the back patio. This is the only restaurant in town that has it's own dock, pull your boat right up! The Coconut Butterfly Shrimp (with sweet chili sauce), Steamed Manila Clams, and Black & Blue Salad are our favorite dishes!”

Pier
“This is a must do if you have the time. Visit Seattle either with your car or on foot (my favorite for around $10 RT). One hour ferry ride in comfort and with awesome views. Sit with a local commuter and let them tell you some history of the area. Let's you off in the historic section of Seattle where you can pick up an Uber and off you go. Mariners and Seahawk stadiums are a short ride away with return ferry trips going into the late hours. Do it!!”

Café

“LOCAL's spot. Featured in People Magazine, they didn't need any help packing this place out! You can dine in a converted VW bus or just enjoy the bustle of the cozy interior. If there's a wait, pick out your own mug and enjoy a cuppa while you wait. The food is very reasonably priced and made with love. The owners are amazing people...”

History Museum
“It is located less then a block from the ferry terminal and a short walk from scenic downtown Bremerton, which is great if you make a day trip of it and ride the ferry over from Seattle like I did”

Pier
“This is a terrific opportunity to take a one hour boat ride from Bremerton, Wa., one half hour drive North from The Gig, to Seattle. Leave the car behind and Uber around Seattle. In fact, the ferry terminal in Seattle is very close to sports facilities (Sea Hawks & Mariners) and near the heart of the Seattle Underground and Pioneer Square, the City's birthplace. All within a two mile walking radius. Catch a game and be back home in The Gig by dinner!! ”

Bakery

“We are SO LUCKY to have this place in our town. Sabateur sources locally and organically whenever possible. Also, YUM! Not to be missed on the weekends when they have ALL the things... (more limited selection and sporadic hours during the week) Get here before 10 am for full selection on weekend mornings. Now serving awesome pizza from 5-8 pm weekdays! Committed to quality. Love this place the most!”

Bistro
“If you want to REALLY enjoy yourself in a quiet, intimate but not-too-uppity place, check out the Hound + Bottle. The HB (formerly known as Honor Bar) has quickly made it up the ranks in our local cuisine scene! The small thoughtfully composed menu with hand-crafted libations is done to perfection. We love that it changes every few weeks which allows us to frequently enjoy a new creation from chef, Alan Davis. Our favorite thing to do is invite a couple of our "bestest" friends, sit down in a comfortable space and bathe in the confluence of euphoric smells, tastes and sounds! (Am I overselling it? I think not!)”

“We love Bremerton! And it is well worth the visit if you are in Port Orchard, at least for an evening. Consider jumping on the foot ferry for a fun adventure and quick ride across Sinclair Inlet. Downtown Bremerton and Manette is easy to explore on foot, but the town still has many places to park (unlike Seattle) so driving over is reasonable as well. We love the H&C! It is ALWAYS full of life and flavor! These guys have the "Best Wings in Town" by far. Grab a beer, get a bucket of wings (choose your own adventure flavor mixes) and maybe catch a flick at SEEfilm Cinema, a show at the Admiral Theater or even better, sit in on a DnD game at Ashley's Pub next door! There is SOOOO much to do in Bremerton - you won't be disappointed! ”
