View of the marina and the bay. Great menu, great food, fair prices and excellent service. What's not to like?

“Cant beat it”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

GREAT seafood and right on the water. Every meal i've had there (only 4 or 5 over the past 8 years of travel to Olympia) has been great -- fresh seafood, great service, and casual atmosphere.

“We loved it.”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

The food was excellent.

Unfortunately, the service wasn't as good. Apparently the waitress doesn't understand serving courses individually, and I really don't appreciate having my dinner sitting there getting cold while I eat my chowder.

“Great indoor or outdoor dining.”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

A good place for a sunset meal. Much more quiet than Anthony''s. No banging plates, and crashing pans. Good food with local owner's. Not a chain just a nice place to go.
