We went for a weekday afternoon lunch. The weather was a perfect sunny and warm day so we opted for outside seating. The layout of the Inn’s deck provides a nice view of the water with a choice of sun or tree shade. Plus, there are moveable umbrellas if you prefer added shade. All the ‘chairs... read more

We were pestered by fruit flies, in our face, on our plates,and drinks. Waitress refilled husbands water glass I told him I wouldn't drink it as I could see a dog hair and white particles floating around in it. The food as my husband described had no "Wow facture", 1-10 maybe 3.

This restaurant is right on the water in Penn Cove with a private marina. The grounds are very nice and you can sit out and enjoy a drink while watching the activities in the cove related to the local mussel industry. We did not eat in the restaurant because it was closed when we were there.

We all agreed that those reviews were totally wrong.the setting with water views is perfect. The Inn is a historic building that is obviously... More

The food was excellent. We had soup and steamed clams. The restaurant itself needs some serious updating. The service was OK. A little TLC would make the experience a lot better.

My wife and I decided to have lunch at the Capt. Whidbey Inn yesterday on a beautiful day. As we walked in a hostess asked if she could help us and we said "lunch for two". She asked if we had a reservation which we did not since it was about noon on a Friday AND the entire dining room... More

It's been several years since we last ate here, but we'll be returning soon. The new chef has created a number of great dishes using locally harvested seafood, fruits and vegetables. Our table shared a number of items from the appetizer menu and all were exceptional. We were there on a warm evening and thoroughly enjoyed eating outside on the... More
