This restaurant offers a varied menu and everything we saw looked delicious. We had salmon that was cooked perfectly and a steak salad. It was a perfect place for a nice dinner after walking the Dungeness Spit.

This was our best dinner in Port Townsend. The small restaurant was hopping with people having a good time, (but not too noisy), the waitress was friendly and knowledgeable about the menu and options. The food was delicious. We would definitely return.

The staff are friendly, and the service was great, the food was good, but didn't wow me. The Lavender Pepper Ahi was little over cooked and chewy. Certainly passable, but not what I had hoped for. I would definitely come back and try it again...More

I went for a late dinner and was impressed with the food and service. I was hungry after a long day of hiking and ordered the Silverwater Burger. The service was great and the burger was the best I've had in a while. The ingredients...More
