Very attentive service that deserves 5 stars. Thoughtful and expertly prepared dishes made in an open kitchen in the center of the restaurant. Love that you can watch everything. Delicious.

My husband and I had lunch here just recently. Food that we ordered did not impress us at all. He ordered rockfish which we found out from our server is on an open-face bread and the fish was over cooked and burnt when it was brought to our table after a long wait. My bean cassoulet was okay but too... More

We journeyed to the Oyster Catcher to enjoy their delicious Penn Cove Mussels overlooking Penn Cove Bay. The mussels were fantastic, the service warm and attentive. We started with a variety of fresh oysters which were equally delicious. At a neighboring table, a diner exclaimed that the burger was the best she had ever had. The meal ends with complimentary...

Food, service and atmosphere simply amazing. The view was fabulous as we sat looking onto the water. They are most accommodating to patrons with allergies and will make special dishes for vegetarians. A very nice evening made more special by our hostess.

It's easy to taste the care that has gone into the preparation of your meal and with the locally sourced ingredients so available on Whidbey Island you have plenty of options from which to choose, your perfect dining experience. The view setting overlooking waterfront Coupeville and the waters of Penn Cove only adds to the ambience in a positive way.

The menu of locally available options was appreciated. Food was good, service was friendly and attentive. My only comment is I had to send back my salad. I ordered a roasted carrot and turnip salad. To me 'roasted' means warm or at the very least room temperature but when my salad arrived the roasted carrot and turnip were chilled. I... More

This is a cozy little place. The service is very attentive. The menu doesn't offer variety other than shellfish. We ate at this place for lunch. There is a porch with outdoor tables. It will definitely give you an authentic-to-the-area feel. The food itself was quite wonderful.

The place is beautifully decorated with great view. The services was excellent. However, the food isn't all it cracked up to be. I ordered roasted carrot soup, grilled octopus, and the famous Penn Cove mussels steam. Only the mussels steam was good as it is fresh right off the bay.
