As usual, we were looking for a good small town restaurant when traveling the state looking at birds. This one seemed odd--a Jamaican restaurant named after a puffin? (These are northern seabirds!) We made our way down to the restaurant which is on a pier...More

Wonderful place to grab a bite to eat or a drink. Food is good. The marina there is very pretty on the Columbia River. It's unique in that it is floating right on the water!

Loved the food here and sitting on the water watching the birds and boats go by. Burgers, fish, and salads are all excellent with good selection of beers and other drinks.

A great meal at a friendly dockside cafe on the river. We had several types of seafood, fries, salad, slaw, key lime pie. All were good but the calamari was just outstanding. Tasty (and strong) selection of tropical drinks. Eddie (sp), our server, was exceptional....More

Unique floating location on the Columbia River at the Port of Camas/Washougal with views of Mt Hood. Gets very busy on the sunny days, best time to avoid a wait list is on the rainy days.
Open year round, closed on major holidays.
