Just enjoyed fabulous fish n chips n slaw at the Keystone Cafe across from the Pt. Townsand ferry departure Dick. Fish was very fresh and crisply done; chips are the real deal in the round! Eaten here several times and never disappointed-much more than the Ice Cream Shop it's also known for with a large selection that pleases all ages.

This place is directly across the street from the ferry dock which serves Port Townsend. We arrived 5 minutes before they closed (7:30 p.m.) and they were still very friendly and cooked our food. We so appreciated them being so helpful and attentive as we were very hungry and didn't want to drive to downtown Coupe-ville as we were tired... More

A drop-in lunch at this road side yielded no surprises. The fish and chips were good, and occasional peeks at sandwiches being delivered to others indicated that this diner delivers. It is a small operation, so preparation is likely highly dependent on the crew of the day. Well priced and worth a stop.

This cafe is right across the street from Coupeville ferry going to Port Townsend. Visit for coffee, sodas, ice cream, lunch or dinner. They have the best fish and chips on Whidbey, so highly recommend having it! Sodas are bottled so you can take with you.

I read other reviews talking about their great fish and chips, so I ordered them. I was very disappointed. When I pressed my fork into the coating, grease oozed out. Any place that says they're known for their fish and chips should know how to cook them at the right temperature so they don't absorb grease. It's not rocket science.... More

I love their fish chips. The best I've ever had. Friendly staff and quick service as well. Lovely location right by the ferry dock.

We came right before closing while we were waiting on the ferry. We had fish and chips, chicken fingers and fries, and clam chowder. Everything was hot, and very good. You order at the counter, get your own water, and wait on the food. The wait was short. We liked the slide show of local pics and the large historical... More

We were driving Whidbey Island and this place was recommended at the tourist information place in Coupeville. It is out by the ferry and quite a drive from town. It sits right by the ferry landing so you can watch the boats come and go. Our fish and chips were very good although the fish portions were disappointingly small. We... More
