The food here is reliably excellent. But reservations are recommended at peak times! Our faves are the goat sandwich (really delicious, and where else can you get a goat sandwich?) and the steak salad. They never disappoint, although the service can be spotty.

The service was the best thing about this restaurant, friendly, efficient and helpful. That’s where it ended unfortunately. The food was badly prepared, the quality of the prime rib was terrible, the noise level way above normal. I would not return.

Had lunch here after whale watching. Nice, cozy place with great food! It’s a stone-throw from the docks, and everything else. They have some local craft beers too.

The food was OK. One person in our party did not get the correct order. It was very noisy so conversation was not easy.

The cocktails are creative, the meat pie had excellent crust. They had no problem with me ordering to take back to my hotel

Seafood was fresh, service was good. Menu is pretty basic, but they do it well. Had the Dungeness Crab Cakes and the Beet Salad. Both were pretty good. Larger venue, so finding a table is usually pretty easy (some places on the island are pretty...More

They have a large party area near the back, but I really don't think 40 is doable in that space. I think I saw a group of 10 there when I visited. can't be sure if they'd let you book the whole place though. best of luck.
