In June and Juy we have eaten lunch here several times. The clam chowder, fish and chips and clam cakes are always great and consistant. Service is above par. They have a nice little outdoor seating area that looks out on the harbor.

Yummy good, either take some home and cook it yourself or sit and have a meal right there. You can sit there on the patio or inside either way your looking right out at the marina. The baked oysters on the half shell are superb and good size too. Scallops plump, sweet, juicy and lightly fried. I'm sure whatever you... More

We stopped in the Café for a late lunch in mid May. I had 3 oyster shooters that were served with their own recipe cocktail sauce and a crab melt. The crab sandwich was absolutely the best I've ever had with large, very fresh and generous portions of crab meat and a wonderful sandwich sauce. My husband chose the Captains'... More

First off, the food was good. Not the best on this trip, the BowPicker across the bridge was better, but good. They seemed to be out of a few things on the menu, steamer clams, salmon fishing and chips, unavailable. What got me was how inefficient this place was. First off, you stood in line to order, the line was... More

Had lunch here with two other friends. I ordered the baked oysters. They were not cooked and pretty much watery and raw. I have no problem with raw oysters but when they say baked, they should be baked. I will say that the Hispanic lady who took our order at the counter could not have been more unfriendly. :-( One...

Stopped in for crab to make crab cakes. There was a pretty good selection of packed crab in the case. To be honest, it was just ok tasting, maybe not so daily fresh. But too expensive really. So also bought scallops. These were definitely not fresh and with both crab and scallops it was almost 60.00.

This was recommended to us by a merchant in Ilwaco. We went there twice even though it was the furthest place from our condo. The food and service were good. It's fast food. Views of the harbor whether you eat inside or out. You can purchase fresh seafood at the market in back.

It was clean. Food was ok but a bit pricey. No waitresses. Food comes out as it is done so it's hot and fresh. Pretty good selection to choose from. Most placed close at 4 so dinner isn't an option.

Mediocre fish & chips with no flavor. Chips looked like store bought and deep fried. No vinegar on the tables. No lemon for the fish. The fish tacos were OK but lacked flavor too. One piece of lemon. The salsa was OK. We were hungry and since the restaurant is also a retailer of fresh fish we figured they would... More
