Surprisingly Good!

This was chosen by someone else for a work trip as the menu appeared to meet many needs. We had the private room for a group and the view was lovely, the service friendly and prompt and the food really good. I am a gluten free vegetarian and they met that need pretty well - and other people with... read more

This is a place with an amazing view of the water, and of British Columbia. I give that 5 stars. The food, in my opinion is okay, as is the service. I give those 3 stars.

We are here for dinner, some of the reviews were negative but we tried it anyway and had good meals. The waitress we had was really nice and we enjoyed the view. The cheese bread was very good and I also enjoyed the Port Townsend brewery tasting paddle.

What a great view of the water from our seats in this restaurant. But the food was just mediocre. The clam chowder had no taste. The vegetables were overlooked. The fish and chips, though, were great. There was very limited red wine selection. Not much variety in the prawn dishes. All in all, not a restaurant that I would eat... More

We went here based on a locals recommendation. We had fried prawns which were super fresh & delicious. I had the special of razor clams that were butterflied, lightly breaded & pan fried & they were as tough as a boot. Like chewing rubber. Not sure if that's what I should have expected from razor clams, but you would think... More

This restaurant has a view that cannot be beat. The place should be packed with a waiting line out to the freeway, but there were only a handful of customers there at 5 pm on a Thursday night. They use great ingredients, but the food lacked the seasoning and presentation.

The location was great. Great view of the water and passing ship traffic. We were a party of three and all had issues with the food. The chicken was over cooked. The chowder tasted like grocery store prepackaged chowder and lacked flavor.

Why are the fish dishes so expensive? I would think being that Washington is smack up against the Pacific, the fish would be outstanding and reasonably priced. The restaurant has an old and dusty off putting smell, like ancient carpeting. The server who seated us was not pleasant at all and the booster chair that was given the to us... More

Great views from most seats, menu has many options but few for gluten free needs, they tried to accommodate needs but struggled a bit, meals are good value overall.
