Great fish and chips and staff

We came here after being turned off by a fancier places staff and we were very delighted. May not have much in the way of ambiance but makes up for with the fish and chips. Also the staff was very attentive. Next time we go back we will go there for sure.

After reading all the good reviews about the fish and chips at the Waterfront Cafe, my husband suggested we try the restaurant after strolling the main streets and waterfront. Service was slow and seemed understaffed, although it was July 4. The young hostess was friendly but the waitress seemed very stressed out and in such a hurry that we felt... More

The service was good but the food was sub standard. I had fish and chips and the fish was over cooked and dry, my wife had a salad with shrimps and the shrimps were tasteless, the kids had chicken strips from the childrens menu and they were not strips but a chunk that was hard for them to cut and...

We picked la conner as our destination for lunch. We chose the waterfront cafe because we asked them if they had gluten free options and they said yes. We asked if they could make fish and chips and again the answer was yes. So we were seated on the patio. We ordered the salmon and chips gf of course and... More

Interesting visit to this restaurant. We initially encountered some rather surly staff. We got that impression right after we told them we did not have a reservation. It was obvious that there were lots of empty tables. Their reaction was bad enough that we almost walked out. Later we realized that they were understaffed with only two waitresses to cover... More

This is an excellent restaurant on the water in the 128 building on 1st Street. It was a little hard to find but worth the effort . We had panko crusted cod fish and chips. I look forward to trying their salmon and halibut fish and chips . The prices are moderate , the water view great and the fish... More

Good quality cod fish, shrimp cocktail and chowder. The best part was the patio on the dock. The breading was a bit sharper than I prefer, meaning we both had some cuts on the roof of our mouths. Guess we should have been more carefully biting into them. The filets are good sized.

We arrived 20 minutes after closing on a Sunday and enquired about a recommendation for dinner. After mentioning that we were looking for chowder and fish and chips, they offered to make us a take out order. While we waited for the fish, they served us homemade chowder. It was excellent! When our fish arrived, we were encouraged to stay... More

We went to La Conner Waterfront Cafe due to the wonderful reviews we read on Tripadvisor. It definitely did not disappoint- we shared a bowl of clam chowder, an order of amazing fish and chips and a bottle of house wine - it was a gorgeous sunny day...we had an excellent lunch and excellent service. Thank you Sandy!!
