Where does SPUD's fresh fish come from?

Wild-caught Alaskan Cod, Pacific Salmon & Halibut, local Oysters from Hoquiam, and delicious, sustainably-caught rockfish from the waters near Bellingham, WA. Spud Specials from time to time are all locally-sustainable sourced products. 

What type of oil does SPUD use?

We use soy bean based oil with zero grams of trans fat per serving and meet all King County trans fat elimination requirements that were passed in July 2007.

Why does SPUD charge for tartar?

Since 1935, all SPUD Fish & Chips locations have traditionally charged customers for sauces. We continue this tradition for several reasons; 1) To honor the 70+ year tradition, 2) We make and/or portion all of our sauces into customer-friendly containers. These are real costs that require responsible management. 3) Our philosophy is that our customers should get the high-quality products and service that they pay for. Some customers do not want sauces and are satisfied with the ketchup, salt, pepper, garlic and regular vinegar, Tabasco, Johnny's Seafood Seasoning and lemon that is provided complementary. These customers should not have to incur the increased cost that would happen if the cost of sauces were added to our other menu items.

Does SPUD have outdoor seating?

We do and on any nice Northwest day, tables are outside for you to enjoy the view of the water.

Does SPUD deliver?

We are pleased to offer delivery through many third parties. However, Spud is not associated with or in partnership with any delivery service. Any issues with a delivery should be taken up with the the delivery service directly.

Does SPUD cater events?

SPUD does not cater events, but you are welcome to bring your large groups to the restaurant or phone in an order to be picked up. No order is too large! You can also place a large order through our online ordering page on this website -- name the time and amount you would like and we will have it ready for you to pick up. 

Does SPUD give charitable donations?

SPUD loves giving to the community. Although we will consider other requests, our focus is on local (Juanita, Edmonds and surrounding area) schools and events. We get a lot of requests. If you don't hear back from us, it means our quota for that month has been reached. Email us at

How do I request a charitable donation from SPUD?

When inquiring about donations please share the name of organization, description of charity, Tax I.D. number, contact person and request for giving (i.e. time, facility, donation) on the contact us page of our website. You can also email us at

Is eating fish good for you?

Indeed, it really is! Adding to a long list of its other health benefits, a study published earlier this year found that eating fish regularly was associated with a reduced risk of Alzheimer’s Disease. This study, conducted by a team at the Rush Medical Center in Chicago, analyzed data from 544 brain autopsies. The researchers were looking for signs of Alzheimer’s, and they found that participants who ate seafood at least once per week had lower levels of three different physiological signs of the disease.
