As a local .... shhhhh don't tell everyone how good this reataurant is....

Our favorite in Oak Harbor. The backyard BBQ salmon sandwich is Yummy. Make sure you ask for extra napkins, and eat it first.... otherwise you end up using knife and fork. It is worth it to be a little messy. Seafood chowder really good... pick it over the clam chowder. Not many tables... but... read more

On a recent visit to Deception Pass State Park, we stopped here for lunch, as it was so convenient, instead of driving into Oak Harbor. It isn't much to look at - a gas station with tourist trap decor inside - but the food is the same high quality as the main restaurant. (Address: 40928 WA-20, Oak Harbor, WA 98277.... More

The food and atmosphere are GREAT!! The staff was very friendly. A very busy place so expect to wait. The wait is definitely worth it!

We stopped at this restaurant for lunch and was very pleased with our experience. They were very busy but was able to seat us promptly. Waitress was friendly and efficient. Wide variety of seafood to choose from. I had a cup of seafood stew as starter and it was filled with flavor and variety of seafood. I had a salmon... More

My parents and my husband came here based on the great review. We put our name in at the desk and we were told it would be an hour to hour 30 minute wait. We didn't want to stand by the desk for that long so we went across the street to shop for a bit. We came back about... More

Wow what a place! They were busy but you can see why! Halibut fish chips were the best!!! Clam chowder was thick, flavorful and full of clams. Will be back if ever by here again.

So we picked this restaurant out of many in Oak Harbor for the reviews and they allowed dogs on the deck. Although the deck is near the street we didn't mind. We all had a cup of soup but I had the clam chowder. It was perfect. Some had crab cakes that were very good. You won't need two cakes... More

We retuned two more times after our first visit . Great place for fresh fish and chips. I loved the sampler that included halibut, salmon and cod. Light breeding and delicious. My husband enjoyed the Manila clams cooked with wine , butter and garlic. Prices good. I bought a container of their salmon pate for snacks or picnic later.

Restaurant highly recommended by hotel but food was just ok for me. Others had clam chowder and liked it but had too many potatoes and crab cakes were very good. I had Pawns but they were nothing but frozen fried shrimp, they were the flat almost square type of shrimp so knew they were frozen. Staff were ver friendly and... More
