We moved to Whidbey Island this summer, and knew no one. We're used to going on for holiday meals and luckily found Captain Whidbey Inn. On Thanksgiving the buffet was a beautiful assembly of all the traditional foods, and the best turkey I've had in...More

We went to Captain Whidbey’s last weekend to celebrate a friends birthday. Lucky for us, Kelsey was our server, she was warm, accommodating and attentive. The food was good and the view spectacular. A wonderful way to enjoy a meal, highly recommend.

The meal we had here was one of the best. The bread was so fresh, the chicken was cooked perfectly and so were the steaks and pasta. The setting is really historic and interesting just to see. Martinis were well made as well.

We defaulted to dining here because we were staying at the Inn, but we were very pleased. The wait staff were attentive, answered our questions and made good food suggestions, and the food was wonderful.

We went for drinks and snacks. Drinks were Uber expensive and food was adequate. The view is spectacular and I took many photos.

Our friend who lives on the island took us here. She made a good choice as the food and drinks were great. It is a fun place to dine.

We had a very nice dinner at this hotel where we were staying. The award winning soup was worth the meal. I was not as happy with the crab cakes that were not very warm or flavorful. The atmosphere is super overlooking the water.

Patsuhy, thank you for asking. There are actually only 2 or 3 items on the menu that actually have gluten in them. In addition, the Chef looks forward to making custom dishes for guests any chance he gets. He takes... More
