The Silverwater used to be our favorite dining experience in Port Townsend, but it seems to be slipping. Nice atmosphere, just OK food this summer. Menu straightforward, not that interesting. Fish and chips were good. Caesar salad overdressed, swimming in liquid. Fried local oysters were plentiful and meaty. Service was distracted. A nice meal, but not great.

Called to make a reservation; got a voicemail which said to leave date, time & number in party of reservation requested; if there was an issue they would call. Well, no one every listened to the recording. Should have taken that as a sign to walk away... The salmon was strangely flavored & overcooked. The fried oysters were BAD!!! When... More

Six local ladies celebrated in style last evening. The staff was wonderful. Drinks and dinner were great. The staff also served up the special cake we brought. We all felt very pampered. The seafood was tasty, especially the theatre special piccata. Thanks, Silverwater.

We were recommended to eat here and we were not dissapointed, Jennifer was our server she was attentive and lovely, the food was plentiful well prepared, fresh and tasty. The music was a little loud so if it will offend you ask for a table away from the speakers. I would eat here again, anytime make sure you try the... More

I have been a regular customer at the silverwater for years. I eat there at least once a week and I love their food, the great service and they make the best pomegranate martini I've ever had. They also have the best homemade pies and deserts. I'am a bit of a foodie and when people come into my shop asking... More

I had a fantastic meal at the Silverwater. I ordered the Filet Mignon. I did find the cost a little high for my liking but the food was excellent so it was worth it. My boyfriend had what they referred to has large tiger prawns. They were far from large for prawns so he was rather disappointed. He was still... More

My wife and I were very pleased by the location and the quality of the food. We both had the lavender pepper Ahi which comes in sashimi quality. The quality of the food as well as the preparation were really excellent. The wine pairing suggestion was also very good. Our waitress was very attentive and although the restaurant was well... More

The food was great, I really enjoyed my Lamb Shank and my husband enjoyed his stuffed chicken breast too. We had a discussion with the Sommelier on paring the wine and he advised a great french red that set everything off perfectly. Enjoyed our dinner very much.

Food and atmosphere were quite good; however, my husband and I will forever consider it one of the worst dinners we have ever had. First, let me establish that my husband is a handsome man and I have never been the least concerned that other women find him attractive. That being said, no woman wants to sit across a table...
