“Best Restaurant on Whidbey Island”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

If you're visiting the San Juan Islands make it a point to dine at Christopher's on Whidbey. The food was outstanding, service excellent and not overwhelming as some server's can be. The place is noisy but pleasant with a pianist playing pretty music in the background. I had the salmon special and my friends had the seafood stew. The salmon was cooked to perfection and my friends raved on about the stew. Wine is a little "pricey" but I had a glass of Merlot along with the meal and it was delightful. Servings are large so plan to go with a big appetite. You will not want to leave anything on your plate. Wherever you are staying on the islands take the trip to Coupeville for a truly great dining experience.

“yummy lunch”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

We were at the Art & Craft Show. Christopher's was serving on their patio. The mussels were very good, the clam chowder was also great. Will be back for dinner.
Coupeville is fun & a must see in WA.
Tip.. Ferry can be very busy going back to Seattle on Sunday, enjoy the drive around it should be quicker.

“NW passage”
Reviewed August 10, 2013 via mobile

Had dinner here on our first night of a three night stay in Coupeville. Recommended by the owner of the B&B where we stayed. Food was excellent. Service was a bit slow due to being very busy. There appeared to be only three servers, two inside and one outside. Good menu selections. Would definitely eat here again.

“DELICIOUS and YUMMY”
Reviewed August 10, 2013

Recommended by our B & B hosts. Our server guided through the menu explaining the portions are significant and we may want to scale back our original,order , she was right! We had their evening special, a salmon dish done to perfection and their pork wrapped in bacon, served with a very, very generous portion of vegetables. Starter green salad and ceasar salad were perfect starters. We waddled down the dock a perfect finish to a great meal

“Go for lunch”
Reviewed August 9, 2013 via mobile

Fantastic lunch here at a great price. Very nice sandwiches and salads. End it with a desert , they are all incredable. We like t sit at the island table that you see the chef cooking. Six stools that all face the kitchen .
