The view over the bay is calming and panoramic but, surprisingly, the food almost matches the vista. Consider, however, how far the ingredients, except for the yummy oysters and some fish, have to travel over the magnificently scenic but demanding Chuckanut drive, and you will...More

It's a very cute restaurant on Chuckanut drive. On the expensive side it specialises in sea food. Service is good and somewhat formal. A table next to the windows is desirable.

Stopped on way through, was very disappointed in service, food was ok but one of the fried oysters was not cleaned well...grit and mud... neither the waiter nor the chef made any effort to rectify the problem.

It's a fancy restaurant but I felt comfortable going in a mountain hardware skort, with a plan flannel shirt. My mom wasn't too happy she was in hiking clothes but they don't make you feel bad being casual. The area is... More
