Great view but the food is so so

The food was average and a bit overpriced, however the setting was great. The service was ok but had space to improve. The chowder was just OK. But most of the seefood was overcooked.

We keep going back for great beer, excellent service, and darned good seafood at reasonable prices. Pan fried oysters were unforgettable. Grilled seafood tacos wonderful. The service is also fast. ... habit formed by serving ferry customers. If you are lucky you can get a dock view seat. Our favorite restaurant in Port Angeles, and we have been to many.

This spacious restaurant is located right next to the ferry landing so it was very cool to watch the ferry come in so close. The entrées were good enough if you stuck with basic dishes as they couldn't really pull off the more ambitious fare, but the prices were right so I'm not complaining. The dessert was excellent. The cocktails... More

I ordered a double Sex on the Beach and they charged me for two whole drinks instead of an add shot. What is that? Fish and chips were not all that. Choose the CrabHouse instead.

The usual Pasta, Steak, Seafood restaurant menu, but always done very well and at a reasonable price. The servers have always been attentive and friendly. All in all a relaxing, enjoyable place to dine. As well, the water views can't be beat by any other Port Angeles restaurant. Especially fun is watching the ferry dock.

We had drinks and dessert while waiting for the ferry. Great views of the boats and waterfront. The giant cookie and ice cream was served hot and was delicious

Very disappointed with the quality of the food. The chowder was cold and the Razor Clams were so under cooked the breaking had the consistency of raw dough! The service was at best casual and inattentive.

We went to this restaurant after a full day of driving through the Olympic National Park. I grew up in Alaska so alway try to find fresh seafood when I am on the coast. We ordered the crab dip for an appetizer and while I was happy that it was fresh, I was not terribly excited to pick shell out... More

The food was average and a bit overpriced, however the setting was great. The Louie Salad was good, but too many olives and not a healthy portion of crab/shrimps.
