The prices are not cheap, but the food is great and service was fine. They could offer a few more salad or vegetarian options.

During the winter months, Silverwater Cafe offers weekday dinner specials. It’s been a couple of years since I last ate there and stopped on a Wednesday evening after a movie for the spaghetti special. This is a good hearty meal at a fair price.

We were seated upstairs both nights. The first night I had an exceptional braised lamb shank. Our server was outstanding...and delightful. The second night my dinner was very good but not the "home run" I enjoyed the previous night. The service was a little off...More

They have built the restaurant on the idea that bringing people together to enjoy good food, good wine and great friends is one of the most important things in life; and the desire to be a thriving addition to this lovely community of Port Townsend that we call home.We believe in quality and strive to continually perfect our craft. We at the Silverwater Cafe invite you in for a moment of casual elegance where you can feel at home with your kids, family and friends.
