Really excellent dinner selection. The wine is mostly local Washington wine which can be excellent but not always. I had some of the happy hour wine and would rate it as adequate. Great service here by the way. Staff is very friendly, and love to talk about their island.

I made reservations for my boyfriends birthday, I can't rave enough. Delicious!!! It was amazing food. I read a couple reviews that the service was slow but I found the opposite. It's fine dining not fast food. Our waitress Sheree, was attentive and genuine. She checked in on us just enough to not bother our romantic dinner but just enough... More

My daughter, new grand-baby and I stayed at the Captain Whidbey Inn. We received vouchers for their restaurant. While pricey, we thoroughly enjoyed each meal, the wait staff and the setting. The deck is tiered so everyone has a water view. It is upscale casual and there is ample seating. You can choose a standard table, or comfy outdoor chairs... More

Not open every day for lunch so check. Limited selection. Three of us had different lunches and were all delighted. All ingredients were super fresh and beautifully cooked, which excuses the slowness. I had the best sea food chowder ever,so fresh and creamy. The chef was new and excellent. The waterfront lawn and picturesque old inn make a lovely setting.... More

We have long awaited our time for a special occasion at Captain Whidbey. We sat outside on a fairly nice sunny day. The service was not the best, I guess we were expecting to be spoiled. The food was also mediocre and the price for the food was relatively high for the quality. Will be selective if we decide to... More

We had known of this place for more than twenty years. My mother-in-law has made the inn's "Washington Apple Cake" for the family on many occasions during that time. She was in town recently, so we thought we would try out the restaurant on a day trip. I don't know where to start. The property is beautiful and wonderfully situated.... More

After a long 3 hour drive, my wife and I were ready to relax. We gave the Captain Whidbey Inn restaurant a try and were delighted with our choice. I had blackened cod which was prepared with perfection and served over a medley of toasted corn and fresh cubed squash. My wife had clam chowder which came infused with salmon... More

We love going to this Inn, 3 years ago, we spent the night and had a fantastic meal. Went back this summer, still enjoyed staying there, but our dinner was awful. Service terrible. My husbands salmon was raw, and my seafood pasta, the pasta was so over cooked it tasted like glue. It wasn't busy, and the 2 waitress kept... More

We've passed the directional signs for this restaurant many times but have never stopped. It is a a few miles north of Coupeville & hidden off the road somewhat & I assumed it was more of a resort (as it offers accommodation) & higher priced. Though it was not "cheap", the prices were reasonable for a nice meal and we... More

We had our anniversary dinner at Capt. Whidbey's last night. What a treat. As an appetizer we ordered the clams with a andouille sausage and tomato based sauce. OMGoodness. The clams were incredible. We ordered diver scallops and the rockfish for our main course. Both were very good, but nothing came close to those clams. Wish they would give me... More
