A shack alongside the highway but a most stop for a great meal. Mostly outdoor seating, only three inside tables and you order thru a window from outside. I'm a sucker for anything oyster and they serve one of the best oysters sandwiches I've had....More

Great little spot , very home-like atmosphere. We just tried the shrimp cocktail and some bread bowl chowder. Arguably the best clam chowder we have ever had!! Definitely will be coming again with the family.

Pros - Fun seating in the outdoors - Interesting menu - shrimp, oyster shooters n crocs! Cons - Slow service (although one of the servers was doing her best taking orders and delivering food to the tables with one arm in a cast)

This is a nice place to stop by and relax for a meal or a beer or both if you're visiting Deception Pass State Park or Whidby Island. They have an extensive menu of seafood, burgers and sandwiches as well as Chowder and a good...More
