The four of us ordered duck with cherries, salmon filet, and the salmon special. All were excellent. The staff were courteous and attentive. This was our first time to visit, but we'll definitely plan on repeat visits.

Located on the main drag in quaint Port Townsend. The salmon was delicious and the waiter was great. On a Saturday night, we were glad we called ahead for reservations.

We asked for a table upstairs and were pleased with our placement. Their starter salad and green pea appetizer were delicious and great for sharing. Our friend had the salmon dinner while I had the shrimp and spaghetti special. Hubby had the prawns with ginger entree. All medals were very good as was the service.

Portobello ravioli were fresh and the sauce was light and flavorful. Tuscan steak salad had too much salad dressing for my taste but the meat was cooked perfectly. Attentive service and... More

With the threat of a severe wind storm looming, my husband and I still ventured out to our planned date of dinner and a movie at the Rose Theater. The Silverwater Cafe was not very busy that night,. And though they were prepared for a possible power outage, they greeted us with full expectation of a great evening - which... More
