Excellent! Outstanding fresh seafood. Best halibut fish and chips I've ever eaten. Delicious hand cut Quenebec fries. Great tarter sauce and 1000 island dressing. Truly a special place!

We were in Ilwaco around 7pm for the big fireworks show along the marina, and excited for a good meal beforehand at what looked like a fun place, but we were soon disappointed. In fairness, the location is actually fun, but that's not enough to...More
