We waited for a table the first night that we went and it was delicious. The menu is extensive and there are specials every night. The waitstaff has good attitude. We went back again. Everything was delicious.

We stopped here based on the trip advisor reviews. We were not disappointed. We were eating a late lunch on a Sunday - seating and the waitstaff were friendly. Our food was a touch slow coming out (we didn't notice as we were enjoying a...More

David and Alison have owned the Silverwater Cafe since its opening in 1989. 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.
