Reservations are a must for dinner ....fabulous food...the quality of the serving is to die for.The view out over west sound with the marina and sailboats in the late afternoon sun make the right atmosphere for a fun evening..not inexpensive but good and prompt service

We enjoyed a lovely evening meal on the outdoor deck of this very old and established restaurant. The chef changes the menu daily, but everything listed is excellently prepared and delivered. Everyone was friendly, the wine was good and the service was great.

Thirty dollars for FOUR nice size scallops with a half a cup of risotto and a few mushrooms is ridiculous!!! My husband said they were cooked to perfection...guess that helps alittle?!! At that price they should include a side salad at least!?!! I had the halibut and the fries. I must say it was fresh, moist, flaky, and delicious!!! Since... More

We had dinner at the West Sound twice in the past month. The place is very nice with a great view over West Sound and the boats. The food was only average but the service was good. Fish and chips was average and fried calmari (a special) was good. Salads and small plates seem to be OK. When we returned... More

Relaxed and friendly vibe, lovely view overlooking the harbor. Have eaten there several times enjoying the string bean and broccolini dishes as sides or apps. For dinner like the gluten free fish and chips (using cornmeal) that come with a kale slaw, great burgers and fries, rib eye steak was cooked perfectly. Nice choice of wines by the bottle or...

Westbound Cafe has the Orcas vibe; we enjoyed great food and beer, in a relaxed atmosphere overlooking the beautiful harbor. The locally sourced ingredients were used creatively and simply. A relaxing, delicious meal. We enjoyed pleasant, professional service. We were warned at our B&B to make reservations for all of our meals on Orcas Island, but had no problem with... More

On our last night visiting Orcas Island, we decided to try the West Sound Store and Café. We ordered the pasta with crab and one of the listed small plates. The pasta, a serving on the small side, had virtually no crab for $24. It had almost no binder with barely any sauce and was topped with toasted bread crumbs.... More

This little cafe was recommended by the front desk at the resort we were at. Without being advised to make a reservation we went to an early dinner. Our mistake I'll admit, but the treatment we received once we got there was rude at best and disrespectful on the whole. The hostess that greeted us was curt, dismissive and the... More

Warm, cozy, friendly, homey and charming atmosphere. Clean. Lovely outside deck overlooking the water or comfortable seating inside. A simple and healthy menu with locally grown and produced selections. The salad was huge and fresh. We had the fish and chips - excellent, and the ling cod tacos - excellent. Nice wine selections.
