In the 1950s, through several changes in ownership, it became the Alki Homestead Restaurant.
Doris Nelson lived in the log house and ran the restaurant for decades, and her antique decoration and homestyle dining turned the Homestead into a favorite for community events.
In the years that I went there, and I started when Hot Turkey Sandwiches were 75 cents, the place never changed.
The menu, except for the prices, remained almost exactly the same. Spent many a day there hopping tables, moving from one conversation to another, eating two, sometimes three, meals, without ever leaving the place.
Now that it's gone I no longer know where to go when up on Capitol Hill. Andy's is not to be confused with Andy's Diner, located in a series of railcars down on Fourth Ave.
