Stayed here overnight on a week night and loved it, undoubtedly because I went to bed with visions of a just-finished fine meal dancing in my head.

We did not dine or stay but had Poke Crab cakes and gin in the Tavern. No TV or music just yummy and quiet.

This restaurant appears to be an old home that has been converted to a restaurant. It is old dark wood style. The food is well prepared and the setting is great.

My husband and I shared a bowl of clam chowder-the Best I've ever had with real clams in it!! I ordered the filet and asked for it... More

My wife and I had dinner at Captain Whidbey Inn Restaurant and we loved the food, a bit pricey but the service and food where worth it for us because of the great view and rustic atmosphere. Can't go wrong with the seafood, very fresh and cooked perfectly !

We were pestered by fruit flies, in our face, on our plates,and drinks. Waitress refilled husbands water glass I told him I wouldn't drink it as I could see a dog hair and white particles floating around in it. The food as my husband described had no "Wow facture", 1-10 maybe 3.

We went for a weekday afternoon lunch. The weather was a perfect sunny and warm day so we opted for outside seating. The layout of the Inn’s deck provides a nice view of the water with a choice of sun or tree shade. Plus, there are moveable umbrellas if you prefer added shade. All the ‘chairs’ are over-sized wicker furniture,... More
