A welcome dockside eatery which provides a warm refuge during morning boat maintenance work. Everything is served to order, prompt and hot. Crisp onion rings. Good burger selection, too. Also a selection of oysters

Hard to believe how good this place is. It doesn't look like much but the food is mind blowing good. While my wife and I were taking a little holiday in Long Beach we rode our bikes over there on one day. We had all different kinds of fried oysters, onion rings, chowder and slaw. Everything was homemade and fresh... More

Very good fish and chips and the onion rings are some of the best I've had. My wife had the fried shrimp which are cooked in the same batter as the fish and chips and are equally as good. The cole slaw is good and great tarter sauce. The service is always fast and friendly and glad you came in... More

My husband and I ate at Imperial Schooner about a year ago on an anniversary trip and thought their fish and chips were the best we've had since we lived in Morro Bay, CA. On a beautiful October Saturday we got a hankering for those fish and chips again and drove 8 hours round trip from Oregon City, OR (with... More

Clam strips were quite good as was the burger. Crisp hot French fries. Prompt service. Definitely a cut above your typical working dock area coffee shop.

My wife and I went here to have lunch. I will say that the food came out quickly. We both had fish and chips and we shared a bowl of claim chowder. I didn't like the claim chowder but my wife did. Too much like potato soup. The fish and chips are made with cod. It came with 3 big... More

Absolutely loved the fish and chips! Decent prices and good food overlooking the harbor. Not a "fancy" restaurant, but homey and yummy food. Didn't care for the chowder, but that was just me. Just be aware that they close at 3pm everyday!! Don't miss out on this one.

Ate lunch with my 4 kids on a weekday, had a great time roaming the marina after a long drive up the coast. The restaurant is kind of a little hole in the wall, but super clean and right on the marina. Super great people working here, a couple of blond young ladies, can't recall their names. Fresh and local... More

My kids and I frequent this little restaurant every time we are hungry in Ilwaco. We especially enjoy the clam chowder and fish and chips. The owners are two of the nicest people we've ever met and they really went the extra mile to make sure we left full, satisfied, and happy...even the picky kid gave an enthusiastic thumbs up....

by the standards of other fish and chips we have enjoyed over the past many tries, this was just average. there was a lot of batter. that was true of the onion rings also. the calamari steak was average. service was good. ambiance was o.k. they could do a lot better considering it is located right on the dock.
