We waited to be seated. The chairs (outside) are not good to be eating a sit down dinner. They are too big and not able to be brought up to the table. The seats are good for wine and crackers. It took 15 minutes before they took the order and another 30 minutes for food, one at a time. The... More

We arrived a 6.30. Glasses of water 6.45. ( don't usually keep track of time in a restaurant but this was unusual!) No menus offered or brought. Finally went and got them from "host". He asked if we would also like a wine list! No apologies offered for lack of service. Then nothing for about 30 minutes. We asked a... More

$29 for the lamb SHANKS but only ONE shank on the plate. That seems about $10 overpriced. But it was perfectly cooked and certainly a sufficient portion ... but would have liked to have had that second shank for lunch the next day! Good service, beautiful outdoor setting (great weather: we didn't eat indoors.)

The food was horrible and cold. The service was bad. The views are good. My husband was served a bottle of beer, no glass. I had soup, but no soup spoon. The plates were cold and so the food was cold. The waiter came with the check without ever asking if we wanted coffee or tea. Definitely, not worth the... More

I had steak which was tasty and cooked just right along with the sautéed mushrooms. My husband had ling cod and a purée of cauliflower and potatoes. While the food tasted fine, the presentation could definitely use some livening up. Some vegetables to add a little color would help tremendously. My husband's plate was just a white blob and he...

We decided to have lunch at the Capt. Whidbey Inn ;sat week. we had read the reviews and decided to check it out for ourselves. We were welcomed as we entered this beautiful log Inn. We had a choice of eating on the deck, overlooking Penn Cove, the dining room or Judge Still's tavern. We chose the dining room. We... More

I had read some negative reviews of the restaurant and was a little wary, but decided as I arrived that day, that I would eat at the restaurant. What a good decision it turned out to be. I had a cup of the seafood chowder, a side salad and the half plate of fried oysters. The portions are large. I... More

This restaurant has a fabulous view of Penn Cove, and has a very nice "feel". However, the staff (both the person who greeted us at the door and our waiter) were not friendly. We arrived mid-week in low season, the restaurant was completely empty and the front desk person looked up at us and asked, with attitude, "do you have... More

$28 steak. Had better at Denny's. Very, very cheap cut. The staff was friendly but the food was below expectation.

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.
