Beautiful vista from deck seating

Went for lunch on a summer day and enjoyed eating outside on the spatious deck. The restaurant is in the Coupeville Pier Building. Unique blend of Vietnamese and traditional American options on the menu. We ordered the Vietnamese Crepe and a Chicken Bahn Mi (subbed onion rings for the fries.)

We were there with a group of 20 and we all had their mussels...they come with a huge chunk of French bread to dip in the buttery/wine/garlic/mussel juices. Everyone was very happy with the meal. They serve Vietnamese Pho and some Thai dishes besides the "American" seafood items.

We had great service and a fresh lunch of salmon and clam chowder at Kim's. Our friendly waitress gave good suggestions on places to see, such as Fort Casey State Park and Admiralty Head lighthouse

We went here for lunch and im so glad we did. Its nothing fancy just a cute little place on the pier with both in door and out door seating. The muscles were amazing! My husband and the kids had Panini sandwiches and soup which they seemed to enjoy and I had pad thai (forgive my spelling)with prawns which was... More

Great little restaurant right on Coupeville pier. Reasonable prices and really good food. Large menu with a lot of Thai selections, but also plenty of other seafood and other choices. Friendly service.

The food was great, and the view was also. Too bad it is not open all year. I hope that visitors will visit in the summer months

We were lucky enough to snag a picnic table on the wharf in the sun. It was wonderful. Our order was taken immediately and drinks arived pronto. We began with an appetizer roll that was scrumptious. All of us ordered the fish and chips which were equally good. Friends, water view, sun and delicious food. A winning combination!

Wonderful spot for coffee. A nice place to hang out on a sunny afternoon. Highly recommended. Also, check out the gift store and whale skeletons.

Kim's is located at the end of the Coupeville pier. There is inside seating and many tables have a nice view of the water. We chose to sit outside on one of several picnic tables; they are public tables and cannot be reserved for restaurant patrons, but we thought is was worth the short wait to have a view of... More

Kim's café has a great location on the wharf, which might lead you to suspect that it's premium location might trump the food quality (I think we've all witnessed this before..) However, the food was quite satisfying and their soups and stirfrys offer a nice mix of seafood and Thai flavors. This appears to be a family run show and... More
