We had salmon chowder , oysters , salmon and chips. Great taste! Fantastic chowder! Exceptional salmon , perfect fried oysters, great hand cut fries, even the tartar sauce was amazing and the cocktail sauce and coleslaw just wow!!!The only reason this became a 4star is because the salmon had a couple of bones in it. First they brought it out almost raw, and they were so embarrassed that they wanted to refund us and of course redo it for free, but gosh I wouldn’t take the refund especially after their reaction of apologies and shock. The girl went by every table several times to refill the waters and make sure everything was good. Better service than some full service restaurants out there.
We also bought a smoked salmon to take home. Also very tasty. This was a great surprise and we’ll be back!

Thank Bingitt

We stopped in for lunch while visiting Anacortes. The served large pieces of fish and great fries. The service was excellent. If you want a real treat, purchase a bottle of their Lemon Love Salad Dressing. This stuff is great on fish tacos, in coleslaw...were still discovering what we can use it on! My daughter had the gluten free fish which she said was outstanding. If you are in Anacortes, we highly recommend!

In fact, this is one of the best choices for those of you racing through our lovely town to catch a ferry. Wonderful fish (of course!) but also amazing grilled cheese sandwiches, salads and desserts. Nothing gourmet here, but its all delicious.

Just finished having lunch here. I had the halibut burger and fries. Actually was not to remarkable.
A piece of breaded halibut served on a chobota bun topped with coleslaw.
The bun was pretty good, but the breading used really overwhelmed the delicate flavor of the halibut. My bad because I know better than to have breaded halibut. Just no flavor.
Pretty disappointed considering the $15.00 price point.
Would recommend trying the chowder as opposed to any breaded fish.
