Freshy’s Seafood Shack in Mercer Island re-opens this weekend

Freshy’s Seafood Shack will be holding a grand re-opening event on Mother’s Day weekend, May 12-14, to celebrate its new look and menu items.

Owner Bryce Caldwell opened Freshy’s at 2411 76th Ave. SE in 2010. Freshy’s Local Market, a farm-to-market grocery store, opened down the street from the shack a few months ago. With the market in a new location, the Shack was able to expand and focus more on casual indoor dining. It will continue to serve lunch and dinner, and showcase an expanded menu of cooked-to-order and take-home items.

“We would like to invite everyone to stop by, see our new digs, have a beer and try a few of our new menu items,” Caldwell said. “It was several years ago, on a Mother’s Day weekend, that we expanded our fresh seafood market and began serving freshly-cooked meals like fish and chips.”

There’s seating for 42 people inside the Seafood Shack. The interior is colorful, with flags and sports teams’ banners, and there are two flat screen televisions.

As usual, on Tuesdays, fish tacos are $2.50 each. Caldwell added that Freshy’s “freshly-ground Painted Hills beef burgers are getting raves.”

As the weather dries out, you’ll once again see people enjoying the outdoor dining area, Caldwell noted.

“I’m looking forward to warmer, sunnier weather when we can get our outdoor seating back in use every day,” he said.
