RIDGEFIELD, WA.

Line & Lure Seafood Kitchen and Tap brings the best of the local waters to the table. This will be a vibrant spot to gather for toast-worthy stories and plates piled aplenty in the spirit of the Pacific Northwest. Seasonal and indigenous seafood will be sourced at the peak of flavor, arriving to the kitchen with shipping bills and source of origin in tow.
