Stephani’s serves up all tastes

By Christine Callan

Combining location and menu, Stephani’s Restaurant opened at the Birch Bay golf course in early June.

Stephani Smith and her husband Eric moved to Birch Bay at the end of April to open a restaurant and raise their family. “We’ve always wanted to have an excellent seafood restaurant on the water,” Stephani said. “We have both worked in the industry all of our adult lives.”

The restaurant is designed to reach all tastes. The split floor plan allows one area to be designated for fine dining including a full service bar and a dinner menu that ranges from $13 - $22. The menu features lemon cashew halibut, red king salmon, seafood fettuccine and great salads.

Stephani’s Beach Club Café makes up the other part of the restaurant, which is aimed more at family dining. “Here you can come off the beach and have steamed clams or fish and chips in a fun environment,” Stephani said.

The Beach Club is open for lunch and dinner and has a menu including fresh to order fish and chips and clam chowder. Prices range from $7– 13 “We really want this to be a place of warmth, hospitality and customer service,” Stephani said. The dining room is open 5 – 10 p.m. and the café is open from 11 a\.m. – sunset.
