I believe the limited menu is one of the reasons this small restaurant is successful. The night we were there the starter list had six items and so did the main course list. Reservations were suggested and made, but not really needed for the two of us. My wife had a delicious beet salad and I had a wedge salad... More

Mostly the disappointment came from the wait we had for our table, without any place but the porch to wait for 20 minutes. We had reservations, so were surprised at the wait, and like with many situations, we watched other tables that were empty get seated with people who arrived after us. The food was good, but, no spectacular or... More

Great food and great location, friendly staff and some wonderful local beers on tap. Service was wonderful and our server was very friendly. We had a wonderful view of Wet Sound from our table.

We thought that the food, atmosphere and service at this restaurant were all pretty good. Flat-iron steak was full of flavor and juicy, so much sauce in fact that it made the accompanying potatoes a bit soggy. My dining partner loved the West Sound Burger and fries. Good basic dishes, well prepared. The fried calamari appetizer was only so-so, I... More

We were staying in Deer Harbor and didn't want to drive to Eastsound for dinner so tried this restaurant - one of only 2 in the area. It was great. Good service. Nice atmosphere and view. I loved the fish tacos and my husband really enjoyed his shrimp pasta. It's a casual local place and we thought the prices were... More

Open for dinner only, this is a great place to eat overlooking the water with views of the marina and other boats. I ate there the other night and enjoyed the salmon, the flat iron steak is good too and desserts are terrific.

The West Sound Cafe has a wonderful and unique selection of delicious dishes. Each plate is beautifully arranged; the sockeye and fish tacos are personal favorites. The west sound burger is one of the tastiest in the San Juans and the Steamers are a must! The cafe is great for couples, families, friends and meetings and has an excellent view... More

Ok, so it's not 5 star city service but it is friendly service by locals. The setting is one of the best on the island and then there's the food. Chef Joe prepares some of the best and freshest dishes on the island. Go there and enjoy the ambience and fresh local fare. Good wine and beer list.

We did not have a reservation but they were great in getting us in to the "European style" table that you might sit with other groups. Service was excellent! We had the fresh clams and they were outstanding. Lots and very well done. The fish and chips were not as good. The slaw was tasteless and the fish was over... More

Although the loctaion is wonderful, the service was eratic. It took a while to get an order placed and then items were missed when the food eventually arrived. I ssuspect that this restauarant is being spoilt by its own succcess.
