“Great seafood”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2013

The seafood at the Chartroom was great--fresh, well prepared, and tasty. My wife and I ordered from the left side of the menu, rather than the dinner selections. She had a crab sandwich, pronouncing it "very good." I selected an item in the "favorites"--prawns, scallops, and cod. The breading was just right--not too heavy. The fish was cooked to perfection. I enjoyed the cole slaw.The meal also came with french fries. The price on the right side of the menu was about $9 more for about the same thing, except for a salad and choice of potato, rice, etc. In other words, the food was great and a good value. One reviewer commented that the place was frequented by locals. I regard that as a positive. If the locals won't eat the food at a seafood restaurant along the coast, beware.

“Real Seafood”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2013

Ate here on a rainy Sunday for late lunch/early dinner so it wasn't crowded but started to get busy by the end of our meal. It's fun having the harbor right out the window and seeing the sea lions on the docks. Waitress was attentive and food was hot and tasty but not cheap. We had onion rings for an appetizer (beer battered and thick cut), I had the Dungeness crab melt and hubby had the seafood alfredo pasta with crab and scallops (skipped out on the shrimp). We also got 2 blackberry cobblers to-go which were like a biscuit with blackberry pie filling. They were good but not great...probably would have been better a la mode but we forgot to pick up ice cream at the store like planned. They offer it a la mode at the restaurant. With drinks and tips total was almost $60. Still worth the experience at least once.

“Plain and average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2013

Once upon a time this restaurant might have been terrific but progress caught up to it. It sits on a large asphalt acre or two and caters to locals. The food is fine, when warm, but the service is rather slow. Highlight of the location is the collection of sea lions that bath on the dock next to the restaurant, and they are noisy.

“Ok Place”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2013

We drove up to it at dusk totally charmed by the harbor location, the barking sea lions and the number of locals not put off by it's 'rustic' décor or even the fact that their house wine is from a box. Food was ok - not horrible, not good. Waitresses were very young, nice and moderately helpful. It can be a fun spot if you lower your expectations, appreciate the atmosphere and the view.

“Good breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2013

Another guest at the hotel recommended this restaurant. The clam chowder was thick. For me it could have used some spice. Breakfast was well prepared and portioned right. The country potatoes, with bell peppers and onions, were very good. I will eat here again.
