good place for fish and chips

we go here occasionally for breakfast and dinner fish and chips. Great breakfast, I like the omelets and hash browns. This place is what I would call an uptown greasy spoon. Service not that great and not really all that clean. But, we haven't ever gotten sick from it. Does take a while to get... read more

Service and food were average, we only had breakfast. Went back the next day also, not many choices, but didn't dread going back.

I went on a little vacation to Whidbey Island in Washington recently and arrived on a Tuesday. The area is beautiful & so much to see just, DON'T stay at The Tyee Motel and Café!! I made the mistake of waiting until later is the afternoon to check into a motel for the night. Even though it was the middle... More

The restaurant serves good food and has a breakfast buffet on Saturday & Sunday. The lounge is cozy and the people are friendly.

By average, I imply that this is a traditonal family type restaurant, not that anything was inferior. I ordered the crab louis. Fresh crab piled on a mound of lettuce, olives, hard-boiled egg, cherry tomatoes, and other such goodies. Exactly what I was looking for, and frankly, the only supper-type meal in the Coupeville area. The lettuce was crisp, the... More

Unassuming from outside but it was recommended by a local so I tried it - glad I did. Prices are good, portions are large. Small order of fish and chips had 5 pieces of fish! With some meals you get a trip to the salad bar. Friday night special for $14.95 was a prime rib dinner that looked good. Waitresses... More

This place has been around a long time. Stopped in for breakfast. The service is friendly. The tables may be just a little too closely spaced but this doesn't stop the locals. The food was good. The over easy egg was a little closer to a sunny side up, but it was still good. If you are fresh off the... More

Salad Bar consisted of wilted iceberg lettuce, a few pieces of tomato, and shredded cheese from a bag. Baked potato was so overcooked, it was hard and yellow. Veggie medley was from a frozen food bag, they had that hard, freeze dried texture. Med Rare steak was burnt and like a hockey puck. Service was slow and I know the... More

The room was hot with no air circulation. No AC, fan or windows that open all the way, no screens on the windows during mosquito season. The noise level was horrible once the "Bar" time started. Room reeked of mold and mildew. The food in café was burnt, and served cold. The service was slow and the staff were not... More
