Warning - I am not a huge fan of seafood so consider this fact in my review. I ordered the battered cod plate with a side salad; both the fish and salad were delicious! My friend ordered the mixed seafood chowder which had huge chunks of various types of seafood (sorry I don't know which specific seafood was in the... More

We were hungry and disappointed by the available choices in Coupeville so saw this online and decided to try it. I had the crab and shrimp salad which was excellent. My husband had a burger that also had house made salami. He was also very happy with his meal. Our waitress was friendly and attentive. I can see where this... More

Seabolts offerings won’t win any culinary innovation awards. They offer straight up American fish house fare. Within that genre of food, the execution is outstanding. I normally don’t like breaded fish and seafood. Seabolts breading is very light. My crab cakes and seafood stew were delicious. My husband’s fish and chips were wonderful. The sweet potato fries were yummy. Our... More

Best fish and chips. Atmosphere is very casual and comfortable. Excellent customer service. Love their clam chowder in the bread bowl, and their mussels fresh from the pencove farm is to die for.

This place is always busy. Sometimes the fish is cooked good other times it's over- cooked and dry. I like their fried oysters and they have always been tasty. They have trouble with grilled fish though. Servers are very pleasant and you don't wait long for your food. For the money it should be bettet.

Enjoyed clam chowder & a nicely embellished side salad. Slightly smallish burger. Nice choices of local wines. Arrived around 1:00 on a Wednesday ~ no problem getting seated. Excellent service.

Went on review recommendations. Popular, so go before lunch rush. Menu offer lots of choices. Halibut & Chips great, Deep fried oysters yummy, mussels were tasty (not too filling), chowders were thick and rich, wings were not spicy or anything special, smoked salmon pate excellent. Be careful when ordering, our young server was very courteous at offering extras beware they... More

This small family joint was recommended to us by several people. We were lucky that we had made a reservation because the line was out the door. We were taken to the front of the line and got seated immediately. My husband had the combination fish and chips (salmon, halibut, cod) and he raved about it after every bite. I... More
