Courteous staff and a adequately executed menu make this a solid choice. Kids have options which they like and it helps keep the bill affordable. Nothing here will knock your socks off but it's all good. On the waterfront.

Great fried clams and good service. Since the food and service at Olympia’s Mollusk House has gone down hill so much, this is now the best seafood restaurant in Olympia.
