We found this little gem by accident and ended up eating several meals there because the food is so good. It is a tiny eatery and waits for your food my be longer than other restaurants, however, it is absolutely delectablel eat there every time we go to Port Townsend

I stopped in on a whim and I'm really glad I did. The view is fantastic, the staff were super friendly and down to earth. I was in for breakfast, and was on the fence between CFS and their corned beef hash. I chose to take the leap and got the CFS. Chicken Fried Steak can really be hit or... More

Dining with a group of friends, I enjoyed oysters that were excellent!! Needing to balance the carb content of the meal, I was quite pleased that substitutions were readily offered and not a problem. The waiter serving our group of people was simply outstanding. He managed everyone's orders professionally, and was a delightful addition to our evening.

The water view of the bay is terrific. The restaurant is fairly large and was busy but our service was prompt and friendly. The breakfast was delicious and filling!

Lots of good eats in Port Townsend, but Bayview has the best personal service for our 98 year old family patriarch. She is always greeted and helped to a table that provides for her walker with portable oxygen. Many restaurants have few accommodations for those who require special help getting to a table. We are always treated like royalty when... More

Almost anywhere you sit you'll have a great water view of Port Townsend Bay and the Washington State Ferry dock. Home style food, great burgers, chowder and fish and chips are a few of my favorites. Good, friendly service.

Our waitress was friendly and took good care of us...all 8 of us! She had no problem handling our separate orders and keeping our coffee cups full. The breakfast was outstanding, fresh and hot. I think everyone in our group was satisfied with their order.

This place has a great view of the ferry, so if you're waiting for a couple hours, this is your place. A healthy person could run back to their car on the dock in less than 5 minutes. Excellent oyster appetizer which was lightly breaded and pan fried. 6 total. For $9.99 you can't beat it. Clam chowder was exceptional.... More

The food is unbelievably bad. Truly unbelievable. For example, it seems to me that the stuff called cod in the basic fish and chips dish is a very, very inexpensive piece of prepackaged fish that's been sitting in the freezer for a long time that was thrown into the microwave, zapped for a bit, and thrown onto a plate. There... More
