Make a Stop at Seattle’s Spaghetti Factory Before it Closes
The Old Spaghetti Factory has been a Seattle institution since 1970. It is one of the chain’s oldest restaurants. Housed in an old two story warehouse filled with antique furniture (and a cable car), the restaurant has always given guests a big bang for their buck and a good time as well. Unfortunately, the warehouse has just been purchased for $9 million to be turned into who knows what. The last day for the restaurant’s operation will be December 23, 2016.
Fortunately, we lovers of the restaurant can take solace that we still have the Lynnwood and Tacoma locations, but let’s face it, it’s not the same. If you’ve never been, you need to give the Old Spaghetti Factory a try. One of restaurant’s best features is it’s three course meal with includes fresh, hot sourdough bread, soup or salad, a pasta main course and spumoni ice cream for desert.
If it has been a long time since you dined at the Spaghetti Factory, you might be surprised by just how big their menu has grown over the years with a lot more choices. However, there is a drawback dining here; they do not take reservations and the wait time could be long, so plan on coming in lunch, early evening or dine late. And if you never eaten in the cable car, you must try it.
The Old Spaghetti Factory is located at 2801 Elliott Ave., Seattle 98121 and the hours of operation are Monday-Thursday 11:30 a.m.- 9:30 p.m., Fridays from 11:30 a.m.-10:00 p.m., Saturday from 12:00-10:00 p.m. and Sundays from 12:00-9:30 p.m. To see their full menu, visit their website.
