“Cool atmosphere ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2014 via mobile

Amazing atmosphere, food is pretty good and drinks are yummy. The fish tacos are one of the best things on the menu. The jerk chicken is really good too.

“Caribbean on the Columbia”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

Come here ready to relax in all ways. Relax your standards and think about life in the Caribbean. No, not the one with the swim up bar, but the one that people actually live at -- simple food, simply prepared. This is a fast food restaurant and yet they are able and willing to make food to order taking into account special diets, too. The atmosphere is great, right next to the boat landing so some of the fumes depend on what is going on there. Time for that relaxed attitude. Bob Marley style. I've been here a few times.

“Good Fun!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2013

A fun place to go for speedy lunch whilst watching the antics of people in boats. It is next to a small marina and you can moor up beside the cafe.

“It has so much potential but sadly lacking.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2013

Beautiful location in the spring and summer. The food and service is spotty. You pay fine dining prices but are served by kids who'd rather be somewhere else. We have taken out of town guests there and made safe recommendations like fish tacos and mai-tais and they live the place for the atmosphere.

“Don't miss this secret hideaway”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2013 via mobile

Cafe is constructed from 2 boathouses. It sits on the water at the port of washougal. Look out on the marina and the Columbia river. Wear your flip flops and a jimmy buffet Tshirt and you will blend right in with the local boating crowd. The service is friendly and efficient. The food was great. Had the halibut tacos. Two flour tortillas filled with deep fried halibut that was fresh and tasty. Enough to share with a friend. We heard other customers commenting on how good the food was too. If we didn't live in Az we would be regulars here.
