I've gone to this restaurant for at least 25 years but haven't made it there much the last few years. I met a friend there today for lunch. It's always been very good fish and chips and Caesar salads with shrimp, but it is even...More

With lots of options on the menu, we enjoyed fish tacos, coconut shrimp, fish and chips and a clam pasta. Everything was delicious. Great view of the water. Located right on the railway tracks, the noisy train was actually a fun attraction for the kids!

Went on a recommendation and actually was a bit disappointed. Found the food that we had to be very average. Grilled shrimp with pesto was very bland as was the sauce that was served with the calamari. Fried halibut was also very average. Just a...More

What an amazing find! We were on our way to Gig Harbor and happened on this gem. It is a small, quaint restaurant with delicious food and an amazing view. We had the coconut shrimp, seafood platter and wine and beer. It was ALL amazing....More

Yes. Good gluten free options, BUT you won't be able to have anything fried. Grilled fish with fresh veggies is delicious. They also have fantastic salads. You probably can't have anything fried because of the coatings... More
