Great food, okay service, fabulous views. Never a bad meal, the menu is fresh, seasonal and mostly local. They have a Tavern or Dining Room, plus dining on the deck weather permitting. Never a bad meal.

The service was good, the food was very good. I really liked the oyster stew and the veal chop special. Unfortunately, if you have mobility problems this may not be the restaurant for you, There is no way for a wheel chair to approach the Inn, as I could see, and the stairs into the restaurant did not have a...

We were kindly greeted, yet nothing after a hello....we were the first customers in the restaurant, she just said "tavern or wherever you want to sit" and walked off. We chose the tavern. We dined for lunch and the bartender/server was ok, but acted as if he'd rather be elsewhere. The fresh cod was excellent but the menu indicated roasted... More

Michelle is an excellent server. My wife and I shared the mussels, fresh and good. We drank the broth down to nothing. Steelhead is excellent as is the steak fillet. We recommend the Captain Whidbey Inn restaurant. We aren't stating the night because we already live on Whidbey Island.

I had not visited the Inn for over twenty years. In spite if some negative reviews on Trip Advisor, I decided to try it out for luncheon as they were offering a discount for Whidbey Island residents, which my wife & I have been for over a year. The mussels, clams, crab & salmon were well served, hot and fresh.... More

Nine of us enjoyed a pre arranged meal, with just two choices of entree, salad, etc. In all of that, it took FOREVER for our food to arrive. When it did, it was good, but being the middle of the week, out of season, and a pre-arranged meal, it might be reasonable to expect better service.

This is a charming and romantic setting. From Port Townsend it is a ferry ride and a bit of a drive beyond Coupevdlle, but so worth the trip. I took time to not only enjoy the restaurant, but to also walk through the grounds. The service was excellent, ambiance wonderful and food absolutely delicious. The view from my table was... More

Captain Whidbey restaurant, waterside built in 1907. Stunning views over the water, excellent food, friendly service. You could easily believe that you had arrived via boat circa 1910 for an extended stay.

Good fancy food, pricy but you get what you pay for. The Portobello sandwich was average. Home made bread. Nice view. Many mix up with the service, wrong order. I would go back but order only the mussle.
