Top Two Winery Restaurant

Westport Winery Garden Resort co-owner, Kim Roberts, said, “We went all in for the win!” A month ago the editors of USA Today notified the business that The Restaurant at Westport Winery was nominated to be in the top ten winery restaurants by national wine and food professionals. After that each of twenty nominees had a month to encourage fans to keep them in the top ten.

Today the Grays Harbor family’s enterprise announced they earned second place in this competition. Roberts’ husband, Blain, said, “We asked our fans, friends, and family to help us get to the top of the contest. We’re extremely proud to have this recognition for our team.”

In a note to their staff the Roberts family said, “Remember to take time to bask in this accomplishment. It's a big deal. You are riding the top of the wave in our industry. We can't tell you how many people locally and nationally look up to our team, what we do, and what we represent. Please, take the time to reflect on your part of this effort. Know that the work you do matters. You make people happy. You offer them kindness and friendship. You make them fresh, healthy, and delicious food. You share your knowledge and enthusiasm of great wine. Your efforts create an atmosphere where we are able to make significant donations to worthy local organizations that make this community a better place to live.”

To those who voted, Kim said, “We want to thank you so much for the honor. We are humbled and deeply appreciative of your support. And we’re especially proud of this team." In recognition of this award the Roberts are naming their restaurant The Sea Glass Grill at Westport Winery Garden Resort. Guests can look forward to a remodel involving bigger windows, better views, beach quotes and colors, and a continuation of the fresh fare and friendly service that brought them this recognition.
