This is a casual place offering the freshest seafood, smoked products to take home as well as other specialty items. I have never tasted mussels so light and fresh. They come from Penn Cove, but were far better than any others I ate on Whidbey Island. These lacked that 'farmish' taste that I attributed to all mussels. Lots of other... More

We stopped for lunch and were happy as soon as we entered the place. The smells were worth the short wait for a table and although it was our server's first day she was excellent. We had gumbo, a halibut taco, Penn Cove mussels, and a couple glasses of wine. A wonderful, wonderful lunch and if we lived in the... More

We stopped here to eat while staying in Coupeville. Having been disappointed with the restaurants there we thought we'd try some in Oak Harbor. Seabolt was just great. We had the fish and chips sampler and a salad and both were delicious. Had a beer too, very reasonably priced and the fish and chips were some of the best I've... More

We had read reviews about how good Seabolts was so decided to give it a try. It was ok. Service wasn't what I expected, people who came after us were seated first, food was ok but I wouldn't say great.

I was really expecting this to be overrated, I was wrong. Great fish and chips (cod) and the clam chowder was thick, hearty and full of clams. Some of the best ever. Small place, probably not a great place for a romantic dinner, but really good.

My sister and I were having a sister trip and stayed on Whidby Island. We found Seabolts Smokehouse on Trip Advisor and decided to try it. It is a small restaurant with a fish market and smokehouse/packing plant attached. We enjoyed the food and our waitress was really nice and answered questions about the menu and helped me decide on... More

Saw great reviews to this restaurant from various websites and decided to check it out. Service was lacking as our waitress was slow and forgot to bring a few things to the table. Food was ok. Ordered surf and turf...the steak was a little tough and a little overcooked and the crab legs were only slightly warm. Looks like they... More

We stopped here on a day trip to Whidbey Island. Of all the seafood options on the island, I think this is the best by far in terms of value and quality. The food is tasty and the place is usually packed with locals and tourists (to me busy = good). We tried the chowder, fish and chips, halibut and... More

We're thankful we made a reservation because this is apparently a very popular restaurant. I ordered a crab cake with side salad. Best crab cake I've ever had, chock full of crab, no fillers, one was plenty for me. Side salad was simple, with grape tomatoes and cucumbers, very fresh. My husband ordered a cup of seafood chowder as an... More

6 of us ate here and all had great fish selections. The food was delicious but most of the seafood is fried.

Thank Taraespo
