We love trying out new places. We had heard of this pace but knew nothing other than what we saw here. Sunday afternoon, rainy, lunch rush over (About 3ish) and an absolutely wonderful experience. My wife ordered the salmon burger and I ordered the cod burger. The wait staff was awesome and cleaned off one of the window tables for us. Our (really good) beers came quick and we awaited the meal. I must admit I half thought we would get some frozen patty version of the salmon and cod "burger". After all, we were in a bar and grill atmosphere at a marina. Oh no dear reader...this was delishishly not the case. Both burgers were the real deal. Both were nice fillets of (just the) fish grilled just right with a nice fluffy (not too much and not too little) bun to complete it. So...picture this...the water, the beer and some good (really good) fish sandwiches, a friendly wait staff, no being rushed to finish...we can't wait to get back.
Pro's - A higher end menu than one might expect from a bar and grill stuck at a marina. Great view of the water and a patio (though we didn't get to use it). High up on the Yum factor. The place had "character" you know...that thing others try for by putting a bunch of junk on the wall but never quite get it. Nice selection of drinks if you don't want the food. It was comfortable and casual.
Con's - The price was a bit up there for the bar and grill scene. Out sandwiches were about $10 each but come with everything. The nice thing is that they are so substantial one could (and we plan to when we go back) easily split the order and be satisfied. I can't speak to those here who comment on the rushes (we went in between) but it is small so it could pack up easily.
Overall, this is one of those places that will be on the top of our list when going to Olympia.
On a side note- The kayak rental. I own the same type of kayak they rent (and rent is pretty reasonable) and they are very stable so one should not need any training others than getting in and out of the thing (easily the hardest part).
