“Great seafood!”
Reviewed May 31, 2014

This is a really nice, "upper scale" for the area restaurant. The food was simple, but extremely tasty, it's got a good atmosphere and the service was excellent! Make reservations. It was busy.

“Much improved menu, prices and service”
Reviewed May 22, 2014

We live in Sequim and it's difficult to find a good place for dinner. We have tried The Dockside in the past and were not impressed. The food was ok and overpriced. The service was not good.
So thought we'd try again, it's probably been about a year. Much better experience. Very attentive servers. You could actually get an entree for $20. I had shrimp and grits, which I've had many times in NOLA. Flavor was good, but grits were too runny. Will try again. Also had French onion soup which was also good. Very nice warm bread with oil and balsamic. You could get a glass of wine for $7-8. So all in all good experience. Will go again.

“A great place to eat seafood”
Reviewed May 20, 2014 via mobile

We visited the restaurant a few days ago and received a friendly welcome and excellent service and food. Nothing was too much trouble for the waiters and prices were good. Thoroughly recommended.

“Such a nice locale, such poor, slow execution”
Reviewed May 11, 2014

What a pity that this waterside restaurant has such inconsistent meals and service -- simultaneously! We waited for ages for our food to arrive, while guests who arrived 15 - 20 minutes after we did, received their food before we did, and the preparation of theirs was so much nicer. Both our water and tea glasses were empty for most of the duration of our visit, and no one stopped by to ask how are meals were, or to refill our beverages. My husband and I watched with increasing displeasure as tables of diners who were apparently friends with the restaurant staff received better service and nicer plates of food, while we and one solo female diner were utterly ignored. My husband attributed it to small-town nepotism, while I thought it just poor service. If this had been our first experience like this, we would have attributed it to a bad day for the restaurant. Unfortunately, this is the third or fourth such experience for us (apparently we are slow learners) in as many visits. We have vowed not to be lured in again by the lovely location. Thrice bitten, never again...

“Great food for lunch!”
Reviewed May 8, 2014

Our table had the clams, fish sandwich, fettuccine and everyone had the cup of clam chowder. Every one was extremely happy with all the food & the service...
