The last time I dined here was 1999. I returned in July 2015. Precious little has changed but that the gardens are more lush. Sam's cooking remains....astounding. I am a retired Navy officer. When I left my Executive Officer position at Naval computer Station, Puget...More

We joined friends for dinner in the garden of Molly Ward Gardens. The fresh chicken vegetable soup was home made in quality. I had the crab tower which is a large serving of hot, shelled crab with sides of asparagus and fried potatoes. A fruit...More
