Looking for a classy waterfront cafe close to the culinary wonder that is Penn Cove? You're in luck. Front Street Grill is serving up all the classics you can think of. I had the classic Penn Cove Mussels with a Ceaser Salad. Not a bad place for the family. Appetizers are over priced. Food is decent. Seems like most of... More

Enjoyed dinner. I had mussels in curry sauce which were very spicy - and very good. View of Penn Cove was very nice.

We took our Moms on an outing to Coupeville and ate lunch here. The menu options were wonderful and we had trouble making a decision. Everyone's food was perfect, plus a couple appetizers and the cream cheese brownie dessert! We'll be back, hopefully in the evening when we can try some of the creative cocktails!

We ate here our first night in Coupeville. I ordered a beer which was quite alright. The pasta dish we ordered was very ordinary, the soup was way over salted as if someone had made a mistake and dumped the whole salt shaker in the soup. No bread at all was put on the table and they did nothing to... More

Great place for mussels. We have never ordered anything else other than a Caesar salad to round it out. We prefer the white wine and garlic mussels. Nice selection of beverages to go along with. Great atmosphere, very good service.

We have enjoyed this restaurant on multiple occasions. In addition to the wonderful view of the harbor, the food has always been good. We particularly like the mussels and the variety of preparations. The service was also helpful and good.

Came to visit in Seattle to see my friend that I hadn't seen in 18 years. Really wanted to take my daughter on a ferry for the first time so we took it over to Whidbey Island. Ended up in Coupeville and we chose this restaurant. We were immediately seated and they had a seat at the window so we... More

The food was below average, and service even more so. I had the fish tacos that were watery and the sides were not fresh.
