So the food was delicious, but we had to wait forever to get it. We weren't in a hurry so at first we were fine with a little waiting. But after the two families who came in after us got their food (there was only the two of us) and we were still waiting, we got a little frustrated. The... More

We stopped in for a spontaneous dinner after getting massaged at massage by the sea. We didn't have reservations but were seated in the bar without a wait. The service was very good. We ordered the Caesar to share, duck Mac, and moules frites. Everything came out quickly and it was all super tasty. Next time I will reserve ahead... More

Excellent spot for dinner. Terrific view and exceptional service. Our group liked the steaks and lamb. Good cocktails. If you're staying at the Outlook Inn, this is the place.

We dined outside on the porch with 2 kids, and they enjoyed their soups, salads, and duck mac 'n cheese. My lamb burger was a little overcooked and had too-spicy sauce, but came with nicely prepared sweet potato fries. The fish dishes looked wonderful.

The food was amazing, some of the best I have had in a restaurant in years. The wait staff was friendly and helpful. We loved the view from the screened in porch where we were seated.

We were excited to drive into Eastsound and find this little cafe right across from the beach. Restaurant is very clean. Service was not at all speedy, in fact, just the opposite. I'm glad we weren't in any hurry. Waitress was friendly and liked talking to the customers. Menu was limited. We do not eat pork or shellfish and almost... More

Our bed and breakfast innkeeper made us a reservation to celebrate a special occasion. We were seated one table away from the window overlooking the water, which is nice. A very pretty atmosphere without being over-the-top fancy. The dungeness crab cakes for an appetizer were delicious....3 small crab cakes with the tastiest creamy sauce served with it. I ordered halibut... More
