Taken here by friends, great food and beer, delightful staff, with relaxed slightly "funky" atmosphere, not high dining but great fun, and the beer is very good.

Don't go for the atmosphere, unless you like a noisy bar. Don't go for the decor; I'm certain that our table has not been replaced since the building went up. Go for fresh, perfectly broiled fish, and go hungry. Baked potatoes were big, and fries...More

We ordered take out, a burger and a patty melt. Unfortunately the food was only average. When I went to pick it up it seemed like a fun atmosphere and location for the bar scene and some drinks, but not for dinner.

In its category, Toby's is a simply wonderful experience. Go expecting some good-natured rowdy humor and good drinks. Embrace the crown and the wait and enjoy the surprise of the quality of the kitchen when your food finally arrives. No trip to Coupeville is complete...More

Stopped for a beer and a nostalgic moment. Still looked the same since I was last here 40 years ago. Lots more local beers and micro brews available. Popular with locals.

This place was recommended by a coworker when we were in the neighborhood. A very interesting pub style feeling and excellent food. Can't wait to come back when I'm not working.

A beacon of good food for many years and bar. The draw for me is the fresh penn cove mussels which are harvested less than a mile away. The deep fried food is tasty too. It is your typical bar menu and it has lots...More

We felt like we were a bother to the head waitress. The Penn Cove mussels were great, the fish and chips average and the wait staff below average. Go have a beer it's just another pub.
