This great space is a hub of the community with excellent lunch and dinner selections. We came back twice on our vacation. The dessert was divine and meals were just perfect. Worth the visit! Great location downtown.

My husband and I love Port Townsend and one of the reasons we love it so much is because we found a very unassuming little place call the Silverwater Cafe that has some of the best food I have ever tasted! I am sure they don't have a cook, they have a Chef who prepares their food! We are going... More

What's not to like....a great menu, friendly staff, a talented chef. Enjoyed halibut with hazelnut sauce. Where the locals dine when they want a fresh seafood dinner.

I love the food, the service and the price is reasonable. The spaghetti, the linguini with sausage, the Caesar salad is great too! Their cheese bread is fresh and tasty! Their desserts are awesome, the hot fudge cakes is great, rich but tasty; also, I love spumoni and when they have it, it is delicious.

We had lunch here and ordered the special of the day, a seafood pasta dish that was very good. The seafood was fresh and flavorful, there was plenty of it, cooked in a light wine sauce with basil. Large prawns, really fresh and tasty mussels, clams, chunks of several kinds of fish. It was filling but not overly rich or... More

I just went here last week & it was good. My client had a pasta with shrimp and diver scallops, it was delicious. I had a crab & shrimp sandwich and only meant to eat half, but finished it off! Nice service, knowledgeable about wine pairings.

The staff, Hostess and Server were very friendly and welcoming but unfortunately the food was a bit disappointing. We had read some very good reviews of the restaurant online so we were looking forward to eating there. The starters were... More
