In addition to a large menu & delicious food, the restaurant has a very nice setting overlooking the water. You can watch the ferries come & go. We also had excellent service! Our waiter did a great job & got everything right.

One of out favorite places to eat in the Seattle area. Food is excellent, service is outstanding. The view is gorgeous especially if Mt Rainer is visible. Always a must stop for us.

Delicious Mac & Cheese with Dungeness crab! Huckleberry dessert warm with ice cream was very tastey! Watched a herd of Sea Lions swim around. Water was nice & clear.
