A perennial favorite. Consistently great service and delicious food. Two years ago I had a perfect surf and turf, and I was back this weekend for delicious chowder in a sourdough bread bowl. Inside has an old school vibe, which makes sense since it's been...More

Halibut!!!! Sooooo good! They don't take reservations but you can do call ahead seating. I highly recommend calling ahead as it is a small restaurant. Get the halibut!

Huge order for sharing, home made with large slices of onions and crispy batter. Clam chowder is one of the best on the coast too. Ribs with meat that falls off the bone also an excellent choice that my wife loves. This visit, I enjoyed...More

Restaurant has a bit of a rustic Wisconsin supper club feel. Old school menu, but everything we had was very good. Started with really good onion rings that were large and tempura battered perfectly. Salmon was very good, but the surprise was the Dungeness Crab...More
