I had dinner here on a Friday evening. You can't beat the view, it looks out over the bay and has lots of large windows. There are several seating options and a small bar. I started with the Copenhagen Mussels and it seemed such an unlikely pairing to have blue cheese with shellfish, but it was mouth watering! If I... More

Passing through Coupeville on a blustery night, pulled into the front street and had some pretty good seafood - mussels in green curry sauce with linguine, vs. fried oysters and chips. The mussels clearly the winner, napped with creamy coconut green curry sauce with a hint of kick; the fried oysters were really nice, crispy and hot, the fries adequate,... More

While the meal was average for a typical American breakfast, the waitress and cook were very, very helpful. It was early, so we were the only ones there. We had a lovely table along the windows - with a great view of the cove and Mt. Baker. The waitress was friendly, and moved along quickly. She was happy to get... More

Had fish and chips, chowder and prawns. Meal was a disappointment, crust on fish was hard and fish a little dry. Cost very much compared to value of meal.

We had one of the mussels dishes and a bowl of clam chowder. Both were delicious. The mussel dish sauce of the was so great that I asked and got more bread to use to soak up and eat the sauce. The chowder didn't have the usual thickening ingredient which made the flavors really stand out. Even though they were... More

Great food, small restaurant, reservations recommended. The chef's choice Mussels were awesome, and the seafood Cioppino was excellent. Well worth the wait. Great view of Penn Cove while eating.

Our out-of-state visitor wanted to enjoy the mussels of Penn Cove, so three of us came for lunch on a Friday afternoon. We were greeted and seated promptly in the cozy dining room which overlooks the water. Our server, Christina, was outstanding - very gracious and attentive to every detail. We enjoyed mussels three ways - Chef's Choice (which were... More

A group of friends and family went in for a late lunch and had a very good experience. This place features Penn Cove shellfish but everything from the burgers to Dan's Spicy Seafood Pasta were very tasty. Ambiance is warm and welcoming. Service very good. Would definitely go again.

Thank Mavmed
