Good local joint!

We went here for dinner on our first night in Coupeville. We all started with pints of local (WA) beers, penn cove mussels for appetizer, and fish and chips for dinner. Mussels were fresh and delicious! Fish was lightly breaded and came with coleslaw and fries. This is an over 21 only... read more

The food was tasty enough, bar food. One of waitresses asked us 4-5 different times if we wanted another beer and then didn't bring it. She did not appear to be overly busy, but more forgetful.

Fried zucchini, fish and chips, cold draft beer and a pool table all situated on the water in Coupeville. If you're in the mood for a local hangout, this is it.

Stopped here a Sunday evening after returning on Keystone ferry. The view was great overlooking the harbor and Mount Baker. The food was excellent...hubby says clam strips were superb! Waitresses were varied, one OK and the other acted like, "Oh, I just wish these people would go home."

There were 2 chowders offered on the menu so I tried both, which were extremely good. Served with 2 pieces of garlic bread. Take out was fast . Served nicely in box with plenty of napkins & spoon. Reasonable prices . I would eat here everyday.

Toby's is both consistent and inconsistent over the course of the year. Service, especially at the bar, is always NW friendly. The food quality seems to vary between summer (tourist season) and winter (mostly locals). Summer wins out for quality and flavor. In winter the chowder, fish & chips, and local (like right out the window close) Penn Cove shellfish.... More
