You'd never expect to find this restaurant in a boatyard- it's been in the same location for years. Don't let this "hole-in-the-wall" atmosphere fool you--the food is truly excellent and very reasonable. The restaurant is small, eclectically furnished, and don't be surprised to encounter a short wait, especially on the weekends. It's worth it! The staff are pleasant and provide... More

How could I ever give the Blue Moose a bad review? They get annual prizes for being the best place for breakfast in Port Townsend, and our family members are regulars there when we have company or need to renew acquaintance with our friends who work or eat there. It doesn't hurt that two of our now-grown kids were employed... More

While I would recommend it for breakfast, I was not over-wowed. Folks definitely talked it up, so maybe it elevated my expectations. I had heard about the biscuits and gravy (which I usually love as a comfort food) I was a little disappointed in the gravy and was expecting it to be more flavorful. Other than those, though, I would... More

We had been told about this little restaurant, read more about it, and decided to try it out for breakfast. It is everything the reviews said- casual, loud, cheerful, somewhat battered and worn, and very friendly. They have several signature dishes- I tried the corned beef hash and liked it, though it was far too much for me to eat.... More

The Blue Moose is a Port Townsend institution, located in the heart of the commercial docks and boat building industrial area. Absolutely swamped with guys in flannel shirts and work boots at breakfast time and prime lunch time, but terrific for the rest of us at slightly off peak hours. Simple fare, generous servings, friendly staff and interesting people. It'... More

All was a great place for breakfast. Every item is wonderful. The place is small, and always filled with people, so if you come with a large group you might expect a wait, but it wil be well worth it. They are amazingly fast for such a tiny little kitchen. Bring cash, as they don't take plastic. Fresh food, huge... More

Travelling through from Poulsbo back to Canada, & found 'The Blue Moose' on cell phone/tripadvisor. Stopped by, greeted and sat right away. I had bacon & eggs, & my wife had the French toast. Absolutely great food! Service was quick & friendly. The décor.....will make you smile & laugh! What a great way to start the day. We have already... More

We went on the advice of a local and glad we did. This funky -- OK, maybe dive-y is a better word (and not in a bad way) -- little shack is tucked away in a working boatyard. We did have to wait (the place is pretty small) but finally snagged a table inside the tiny one-room joint. Our breakfast... More
