Noisy, great food, good service

The noise level can be uncomfortably distracting from the great food and service. We have eaten there several times and recommend seating along the far left wall. The acoustic panels are more affective.

My favourite place for mussels on Whitney Island! Only 2 hours south of Vancouver! Well worth the drive to Coupeville for the wide selection of mussels. Great ocean view while you dine- super friendly staff.

My wife and I live in Coupeville and dine frequently at the Front Street Grill. The food is always good and the menu varies. Daily specials have been a particular treat, especially at Sat. and Sun. breakfast. I would characterize the menu as "American Contemporary". Portions are more than adequate. Presentation is great and the atmosphere cozy. Staff is competent... More

We were seated right away at a table by the window that we had reserved, and we were pleased to find a live band playing Spanish music. The view of penn cove was lovely. The mussels that we shared to start were delicious, served in a creamy broth with bacon and onions. We each chose a different dish, pasta or... More

There's no question that the view and decor of Front Street Grill are exceptional, and our server was very nice and attentive. However, our breakfast experience was less than we hoped for. They weren't busy, yet my biscuits and gravy arrived less than piping hot, while my omelette was fine (and tasty). The gravy rapidly congealed into an inedible goo,... More

We have eaten at the Front Street Grill several times over the past few years, alone and with different groups of friends. The food (especially the mussels) has been great and our friends impressed by the comfortable atmosphere, attentive and friendly service, and the wide selection of entrees. We have seldom had reservations or had to wait more than a... More

We ate here three nights in a row, whilst staying in Coupeville. Really friendly staff and a good variety of food and drinks on the menu. The waterfront location would be lovely in the summer, but the Christmas lights made it pretty in December too. Very relaxed and we loved the live music on our first night.

Stopped in for dinner on my way through Whidbey Island. The food was great, the view was pleasant and the service... well it was acceptable. This is probably my most common complaint in this type of restaurant, the servers need a little more training. I really enjoyed the meal and I will be back, maybe the service will be better... More

This is a gem of a restaurant, located in the Victorian hamlet of Coupeville, WA. You will enjoy wonderful views across Penn cove while you dine on locally harvested, fresh mussels prepared with great culinary talent. My recommendation is to try the coconut curry preparation. Order extra bread to sop up every last drop of the sauce; you wont want... More
