We had never eaten at the silver water cafe, but were able to get a last minute reservation. We enjoyed our dinner immensely! I had the salmon, while my husband enjoyed the tomahawk ribeye steak. Service was great as well.

The Cafe is an enigma experience. On two floors, the upper loft seems to be more elegant, while the lower floor tends to be more casual. Upstairs, people dress up for dinner. Downstairs you will find a mix from Business Casual to Jeans. Reservations should...More

The food is great, but be prepared for it to be a little pricy. It's worth the cost, but I'll admit to being ill-prepared for the bill.

David and Alison have owned the Silverwater Cafe since its opening in 1989. They have built the restaurant on the idea that bringing people together to enjoy good food, good wine and great friends is one of the most important things in life; and the desire to be a thriving addition to this lovely community of Port Townsend that we call home.We believe in quality and strive to continually perfect our craft. We at the Silverwater Cafe invite you in for a moment of casual elegance where you can feel at home with your kids, family and friends.
