We were very hungry but a lot of dishes appeared in the menu were not available. All food was fried and te taste was missing. However the restaurant looks nice and welcome

Fish was good. A very basic menu. Like meat and potatoes, but with fish. Service uneven. Some nice locally made pies from dessert. Though this place is right on the dock which is fun, there actually isn't a view. Go to the other place for that

This little restaurant is in a very scenic location, but the food is unremarkable. The staff is friendly and considerate. Go to the dock for the experience, but skip the restaurant.

We love finding little gems, like Griff's appeared to be... But, unfortunately they've missed the mark. Ordered oysters on the half shell, that my husband spit out immediately for fear of getting sick. I'm not sure if they use a canned product or what, but I assure you these were not fresh. The clam chowder left a lot to be... More

I was on a back roads trip with my boyfriend and we found this fun little place and the people there were friendly. It was a major highlight of my trip!

If you aren't a seafood lover, not a lot choices. I got a tuna sandwich, mostly mayo, nothing else but toasted bread & tuna, no lettuce or tomato. My husband got the 2 pc. fish & chips. Good portion size & fries & small size slaw. Lots of choices if you love seafood. Right on the dock with a nice... More

Yeah, that's right. I just referred to myself as an expert, but being from Seattle and having Alaska salmon fishermen in my family, it's justified. And saying that, I'm sad to recommend you avoid this restaurant. By all means, drive down to the dock and take pictures of it's awesome exterior. Go inside, browse their gift shop, and buy some...

You can buy locally caught seafood fresh from the docks but served in portions perfect to bring home and make for dinner that night. They had scallops, calamari, snapper, prawns, dungeness crab and more!

Only 6 tables and a small kitchen, but they prepare fish masterfully. We enjoyed the Dungeness Crab, salmon and prawn cocktail - very fresh and perfectly done.

If you are looking for simple and exceptionally tasty food, check out Griff's on the Dock. I selected shrimp and chips. The shrimp were slightly breaded and fried. My order was taken promptly and my food served hot. As there is not a lot of seating, consider arriving at the off times. Even if you have to wait, the food... More
