Love being on the water. Food is fresh, great and not too overpriced for the area. Our service was fabulous.

Great fish and chips - and without the chips, good slaw. It is right on the water so fun to watch the boats go by. The waitress got briefly confused about the order but we got what we ordered in the end. The gorgeous last of summer weather helped but this would be a fun town to visit anytime.

Their service is great. I had oysters and fries.The fries were good, the oysters were good but really small, the flavor was good though.I usually have the cheeseburger and fries, but they have excellent fish and chips also. And they have tables outside on the large deck overlooking the Swinomish channel to enjoy the boat traffic. They are going to... More

We had lunch and enjoyed calamari and cod. The food was delicious and the service excellent. It was my birthday and I finished with a free piece of apple pie. Yummy.

Great place for lunch - even though we think it was even better last year, we still loved the fish and chips!

If the weather is good, you'll enjoy your meal a lot more if you eat outside. The menu is varied with lots of choices for hamburgers, salads, sandwiches and entrees. My fish and chips was excellent but would have been a lot better if the waitress has remembered to bring the extra lemon I requested.

Seems like everybody wants to take Tuesdays off in Laconner. Service at the Waterfront Cafe was okay but just like most places in Laconner we noticed a decided lack interest in dealing with the public. The food was alright if not a little on the expensive side and the service was lax and inattentive.

Great service, great food. Their lemonade is to die for. The view is really nice if you sit outside. Dog friendly as well.

We have finally found the best fish & chips around! Usually a restaurant will get part of it right but not all...but this place offers the full-meal-deal! Very fresh, firm cod, wonderful crispy batter (not greasy at all), great fries, again, not too much oil, and really flavorful cole slaw. We're anxious to go back to try other offerings...rumor has...
