After reading Glacier Hunter's review, my wife and I almost didn't eat at Josef's. That would have been a terrible mistake.
After deciding to try Josef's because of the menu, we were pleasantly surprised. The service was very good and our waitress, Cindy, was very friendly and personable. We started with an order of the hard cider Manila steamer clams and a bottle of 2000 Townshend Cabernet. My wife had the Coriander Pan Seared Duck with an orange soy reduction. According to my wife the only way to describe it is "scrumptious"! I had been craving fish and chips and ordered the IPA battered Halibut fish and chips. They were not as spectacular a presentation as the duck, but equally as good. We were going to skip desert as the portions are very generous. However the waitress talked us into trying the Chef’s special bread pudding. I have never been a fan of this desert but gobbled up every bite. It was truly spectacular.
After telling our waitress about the review we read, she said the current chef started in April of 2008 and has turned this restaurant in the Silverdale Beach Hotel into the premier eating destination in the Bremerton/Silverdale area.
