Overpriced for average food.

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... read 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.

The view was the only thing good about the restaurant. I ordered Fish and chips only had two small pieces of fish which was mostly breading with little or no taste, my wife ordered clam chowder that looked like it had been setting out all day she was not pleased. Menu was over priced for what you got. Not at... More

We went to this restaurant twice in a one week period. First to check out the menu etc. Second for a celebration dinner. The choice was made based on the good seafood and the marine view. The first night, just my husband and myself and we thought the noise level was an exception rather than the rule. We were wrong.... More

Probably the worst Fish. & Chips I have eaten. $27.00 for Halibut & Chips? I don't think so. I ordered the Cod & Chips for $13.00. It was covered in mystery bread crumbs, likely precooked & microwaved, or just deep fried again. Am I wrong in assuming fish '& chips means a battered fish??? It really was disgusting!!!! I won...

While my husband, myself, and father-in-law were in town we stopped here for dinner. My father-in-law want a fan of the fish and chips but I loved the salmon burger and yummy treats. Little pricey but to be expected so close to the water.

I've eaten here many times and every time it's been great. Really good clam strips, excellent service, and a great wine selection along a view of the straits.

Halibut and chips awful. Cod worse. Turkey club sandwich ok. One burger was a hit, that's all. Halibut was a soggy, over battered, under cooked mess. To charge $27 for it is highway robbery! Cod was from a box, pre-formed and panko battered. Yuck. Burger was the only bright side. It's hard to say though as this particular customer is... More
