They have built the restaurant on the idea that bringing people together to enjoy good food, good wine and great friends is one of the most important things in life; and the desire to be a thriving addition to this lovely community of Port Townsend that we call home.We believe in quality and strive to continually perfect our craft. We at the Silverwater Cafe invite you in for a moment of casual elegance where you can feel at home with your kids, family and friends.

“Perfect ahi”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

This is an excellent eatery in Port Townsend and I've never had anything but fine meals, except for the ones that have been inspired! The Seared Ahi is terrific and always so carefully prepared, as are the soups. Service is always professional, but warm and when dining there I always have the feeling of being truly welcome. The lounge upstairs is a terrific place, too, with Bobra and Ray serving possibly the best martinis in town.
This is usually the first restaurant my wife and I recommend to visitors.

“They have lowered their standards to attract the movie goers.”
Reviewed April 3, 2014 via mobile

We would come to Port Towsend just to have an excellent dinner at the Silverwater Cafe but not any more. They have the same staff and facility but they have lowered their standards to attract movie goers with two for one prices.

The food was fabulous. Good selections and dessert was fantastic. Be sure to make reservations or you risk sitting at the table under the stairs...

“Service can vary. Food wonderful.”
Reviewed March 17, 2014 via mobile

Have been here several times and the service is uneven...even by the same person. Last time we weren't given water refills. Food has always been very good. Appetizers especially fine.The atmosphere is quite nice with real plants surrounding. Recently they have joined with the Rose theater to serve appetizers on the third floor during special film showings. The truffle oil french fries are excellent there.
