Great Fish & Chips

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... read 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

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

The restaurant is located at the end of the pier and is well worth the walk out from town. Three of us came for a late lunch (3 pm) and found it almost empty of customers. I ordered fish and chips with peanut coleslaw. It was delicious, especially the beer batter encrusted fish. Service was fine as expected with no... More

We walked into Kim's shortly after 11 am with a party of 11 and no reservation. We were promptly seated - first pleasant surprise. We ordered around the menu, including several meal splits and shares without any hassle. Food was all good. The sandwiches were not the best choices on the menu - the bread to filling ratio was heavily... More

Perched at the end of the wharf in Coupeville, I was hoping for a nice lunch with fresh fish. There are a couple of good restaurants that we usually attend when we make the drive there, so we wanted to try something different. The restaurant has a heavy Asian influence but they also offer fish and chips as one might... More

I had lunch here with two nieces and one nephew--all teenagers. Great food, varied menu, rustic atmosphere. One of my nieces tried the Pahd Thai and loved it. I had the Penn Cove mussels prepared in white wine, garlic, and butter...oh, my were they ever delish!! Prices very reasonable and service was just right.
