I recommend the pulled pork sandwich and my husband loves the chili. Great view of Penn cove and watching the ducks play in the water. Tricky to find, we missed the sign the first time we walked by so my husband had to call to see where they're located. The restaurant is down a stairway next to the yellow building.... More

This is a wonderfully situated restaurant. Super views, outside seating, right in the heart of downtown. The menu seems varied enough to serve everyone in a group. But here's the thing. Much like at grandma's house, some of the things are really good. Things she's made for years. But there's also little quirks. Things aren't exactly as you'd expect. And... More

Hubby had pulled pork sandwich. It was literally pulled pork without any sauce at all on it placed between 2 slices of toasted white bread. Flavorless and bland. I had their seafood chowder or was it clam? Hard to tell. It was like a grey paste purée. Again very bland. Definitely lacking the chunkiness and flavor of other chowders that... More

Just found this place by accident walking about Coupeville. Four of us for lunch. Great setting, good and friendly service, but the food was the clincher. Unique choices on the menu. The squash soup was amazing. Excellent sandwiches and chile. Not your run of the mill fare. Highly recommend.

Great little restaurant. The soup I had butter nut squash was excellent. The tuna sandwich had pieces of tuna and a dill mixture dressing in it. Best tuna sandwich I have had.

WOW--World Famous Penn Cove Mussels (fresh from just up the road on Whidbey Island) with fresh garlic, basil, bell pepper, white onion, carrot, and special house wine sauce. I enjoy so many things about a day-trip to Whidbey and here's one more to add to my list. Four of us were just there. The deck was full so we ate... More

Chili in an area known for seafood was a nice change. The chili was excellent, the cornbread was terrible. The view was great the service was so so. You decide if you want to go.

During the Coupeville Arts Festival over the weekend, I needed a quick, but enjoyable meal. I noticed they had chili on the menu. I love chili. Been eating it since I was a kid. The Misquito Fleet Chili comes in cup or bowl portions. I opted to take my order to go. It was prepared quickly for me since I... More

We stopped in Coupeville for lunch and enjoyed walking the small Main Street shopping area along the waterfront. We ate at this small restaurant located down some steps below another shop. They offer several soups and a variety of sandwiches and quiches, freshly made. This is a casual place with rustic wood decor and windows looking out over the water.... More

On a Saturday night when restaurants were so crowded you couldn't hear yourself think, this was an oasis of peace. Down steps to a landing is outdoor seating overlooking the water. We chose to sit alone inside out of the sun. Banquettes are graced with large windows with a direct view over the water. Food was delicious and we can... More
