Lovely spot----we're so happy this is here!

We have had some simply wonderful meals here, & for us it is perfect since it is 6 min from home! There are outdoor tables on a covered patio for delightful outdoor dining with beautiful views of the water; service & atmosphere are very friendly & thoughtful.

A wonderful new development at this Inn + restaurant.. Chef Jason Aldous has brought amazing farm to table dining to Camano! From the baby radishes with creme fraiche bite when we first sat down, to the final bite of a unique malt cake with caramel sauce, dinner was delightful. In between, a wonderful black cod entree, and tender grilled pork... More

This place has a really creative chef who is a master of flavorful sauces. All of the food was local, very fresh- the salad tasted like it was just picked out of the garden, and wonderfully prepared and presented. The kind of meal where you savor every bite. The cauliflower appetizer in the bachamel sauce was divine. Highly recommend.

A fabulous treat! A holiday buffet with more than turkey & cranberries. Steelhead, ribs, and plenty of dishes you do not get at most restaurants. .Yes, turkey also, it was Thanksgiving!

Excellent chef and food; farm-to-table, local, accommodates dietary restrictions -- clearly the chef is passionate and wants to deliver memorable dining experiences. The room is gorgeous; it might seem small, but there are additional areas for dining (main floor, upper and outdoor). Some nice staff, particularly during our breakfasts. There weren't many diners/guests during our Friday evening dinner, so it... More

We really enjoyed sitting outside watching the sunset - that seemed to linger. The food was good, creative. We enjoyed our appetizers more than dinner. Then again, we may have been full by dinner!

We drove by on the way to the State Park and saw this little Inn with restaurant and decided to go back for lunch after visiting the park. It was a real joy. Great food, great friendly staff, and great view. It made our day and will be going back.
