I came to Front Street Grill with high hopes. It's in a great location with a nice view of Penn Cove. We had a reservation for four with a window seat looking out on the water. We arrived a couple minutes early and were seated right away. We ordered the onion ring appetizer and it came in good time. Everyone... More

I visited the island for the day with a cousin and the Front Street Grill was where we went for lunch. The food was great, the service warm and friendly. Yes, it was crowded and service was slow, but we were seated right away - what's the hurry? If you have to wait a half hour for the ferry, how... More

We live in Coupeville and have eaten at Front Street Grill twice before this visit. I keep wanting to give it another chance, but this is the third strike. The view is great! The staff is friendly. But the food is, in my opinion, sub-par and the ambience, other than the view, is claustrophobic and noisy. We were seated next... More

If you like fresh mussels, this is a great place with a full page of preparations to choose from. Large portion and you can add pasta for only $5. The place was busy at 3pm and the staff was helpful and our food was served timely but not rushed. We had our Labrador with us and they had a spot... More

My husband and I ate here on our anniversary trip to Whidbey Island and this place is super claustrophobic and the wait staff is really slow. we got seated next to another party which I felt we invaded their space and there was just a pole separating the tables. There's no seating on the deck to have a water view.... More

We stopped in for lunch and had the angry mussels as an appetizer! Fabulous and spicy ! Coconut shrimp and pulled pork sliders were also good. Excellent service from Tayla, our server! We would love to come back!

Had a good burger for lunch. Bit noisy and crowded. Friendly attentive staff. Try for a seat overlooking the inlet if possible, they moved us to one after we had ordered , prior to the food arriving.

Right on the harbor and very busy....a good sign that the food had to be good. At least a dozen different preparations of mussels and clams. The green curry mussels were excellent!

Saffron mussels and the catch of the day mean you can't go wrong. Nice ambiance, good service, tasty food. Bumbleberry pie with cinnamon ice cream will complete your experience.
