“Plastic tasting fish”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 December 2013 via mobile

The view is beautiful and the only thing good in this restaurant. I think our fish was frozen for a few years before being served and was bland. Service was prompt and friendly.

“good food but overpriced”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

Interesting but dark interior and the food is good but it's way overpriced. We have been a few times and gave up because the fish & chips were too greasy & the service far below minimum. It's noisy and needs some updating from appearance. Frankly, we are surprised it's still in business knowing the competition from all over.

“Place needs to have some updates all around”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 November 2013 via mobile

thought we would try something new.
This place needs a serious update.
It is dark and gloomy, really outdated. The food kind of tasted all the same ,pretty greasy food. The bus boy was very sweet and attentive but everyone else just didn't seem happy to be there.

“Dated and a little creepy”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 November 2013

We should have known when we drove up that this was going to be bad. The place was nearly empty, but we figured that may Thursday nights are slow around town. The place smells musty and old. The staff was friendly, but the poor bus boy was so bored that he just kind of hung out in the shadows and waited for you to finish your meal. The fish and chips were pretty good though. Well, the fish was good, the chips were just whatever bulk frozen stuff they buy. The saving grace for the night was the homemade marionberry pie.

“Rustic charm, great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 October 2013

Early Sunday afternoon no waiting. Many window seats with views of the Columbia River. Nice write up on the menu about the origins of this specific restaurant and the tradition of a Ship's Inn throughout England. Wish the write up had been on something that could have been taken with us. Side salad was large enough for two. Clam chowder was excellent as was the crab melt on an English Muffin. Actually had enough left for a light snack later that evening. More than adequate parking. Staff friendly and efficient.
