We stopped for lunch on a Sunday afternoon. The restaurant itself is very charming overlooking a marina. It was packed, but we didn't mind the wait. The food was good, but not outstanding. We had the clams as an appetizer which were good and a...More

You can tell the good restaurants by the number of locals there. Tugboat Annie’s is a “happening” place. There were so many locals here we had a short wait to be seated, but it was well worth the wait. It is such a lively place...More

Had a wonderful lunch when we were exploring Olympia for the day. Great fried shrimp, fantastic crab & artichoke dip and great cocktails. Really cool, charming atmosphere and great service.

Wonderful atmosphere service was impeccable food was good but I need to experiment with something different each time I go instead of ordering the same dish again and again.

At the end of a dead end road overlooking a marina and inlet. Have to take stairs up to dining room and bar. Great menu with lots of great food. Music some nights. A real local gem.

Looking for music in Olympia on a Wednesday night was a challenge. Somehow found Tugboat Annie's! We ordered wine (a disappointing 2016 Waterbrook Chardonnay) and food and waited for the band to show! Not a band, just a bunch of musicians that like to put...More

Fun decor, lively place right on the water. Happy to have some salad options on the menu, which you can get either with our without meat. Pretty good beer selection.

Perfect place for affordable, casual, comfort food with a view of Budd Bay. If you’re lucky, you may see seals and other marine life playing around right outside. They also have a breakfast special that includes kayak rental from their dock.

I don't have little ones anymore but would take them there to eat. Nice waitstaff, good kid food and lots of humorous little signs to read.
