“Always good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013 via mobile

The ship inn is consistently good for fish and chips. We eat here occasionally when we are looking for deep fried fish, and my wife says the English specialties are always good. The service sometimes seems a little slow, like not enough waitresses to cover the place, but the food always comes out so hot you have to wait a minute to eat it. The view of the river is great, only matched by a few other places in town. Not a cheap place for fish, but you do get a large serving. The clam chowder is one of the best, and this is from a guy that has been searching for the best chowder in the northwest for years, it's thick, creamy and full of flavor.

“Good food and a great view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

We enjoyed this casual setting with a great river view of the mighty Columbia. We were greeted with a friendly smile, the fish was nicely done, and we'd visit the Ship Inn again!

“Good but not special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

We enjoyed our food, but the place is starting take on a more "worn" appearance than previously. The cod was quite good, but the batter probably isn't to everyone's liking. Although the menu doesn't mention it, if you order it with "Mr. K" you get fewer fries and a large serving of cole slaw instead. The Ship Inn had good food, but its no longer anything special.

“Great chowder !”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

The seafood platter was really big and can be shared. The clam chowder was very nice, but over all this place is nothing to rave over. Just above average.
