“Best Dinner in Long Beach (WA)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2008

Stopped in here for a dinner while taking a long weekend in Long Beach. The exterior and interior decor doesn't look like a whole lot, but the food was wonderful and the service excellent.

For appertif, the wife and I ordered the chowder, and for entrees I ordered the Cajun Jambalaya (in Washington state, who knew??) while she had mussels. We were both VERY pleased with our meals, as well as the service.

There's no dress requirement, but I would suggest slacks for men (or your best jeans) and a collared shirt. You'll get a seat without one, but I would have felt more comfortable with one.

The only detraction - and it's a personal one - was the harp music. The owner, Cheri, plays the harp in the dining room on Sunday nights. Dinner music is okay, but it was just a slight bit too loud for me.

“Home-Style Cooking in a Quaint Atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2005

We drove across the bridge last night to the quaint little town of Seaview and had a great dinner here. There were four of us dining. We had a card for a free app that was a cheese fondue with sliced green apples and toast points. Very good, chevre and swiss cheese dip. Loved this.

I had the salmon that was served with a sweet teriyaki glaze, rice and mixed veggies. Very good. Meals come with a small and very fresh green salad with feta and dill dressing. There is marionberry compote and a corn relish for the nice, fresh homemade bread, also. Fried chicken, fettucine and clam chowder were the other items. We dine every time we're in the area. It's great but make reservations, the place was full by 7:00 and they were turning people away. On Thurs. night you get a free entree with the purchase of a bottle of wine there. Highly recommend!
