The Strand Smokehouse
If you have time to trek, head to Astoria and try the Strand Smokehouse. The spot is definitely worth it, especially if you like pairing barbecue with good whiskey or beer. All of their meat is smoked and the beer is local. To add to such a great smokehouse, they even have live music. Since it's getting warmer out, we recommend grabbing the food and heading straight to the back porch. You can even go there for a night out since the kitchen closes at 2 am and the bar closes at 4 am.
