I enjoyed the stuffed chicken (not especially the side dish) but didn't really care because we had two other amazing courses. As an appetizer we had the snap peas... fresh and bathed in chile sauce and then dessert was quite something. A sour apple pie with a very nice vanilla ice cream. I'd certainly return! Nice people, too!

There were 6 of us on a Friday night without a reservation and we showed up at 6 pm .... they were able to accommodate our party with a minimum of fuss. We ALL loved our dinners and desserts. Would I go back there ... ABSOLUTELY!!

We went here on a whim of being in port townsend because we just drove until we were ready to stop. Went on Mother's Day and had a wonderful experience. We had the clam chowder and fish and chips. Both were Delious.

My husband and I had lunch here today. We ordered the soup of the day which is the Baja Corn Chowder. It was really, really good. We both really loved it. I'm glad it's great because we waited for 15 minutes to get our soup and it should not when it is not busy. We were looking on the other... More

Randyll provided excellent service. Food was beautifully presented, and excellent! Background music was lovely. I have recommended to several friends. It is next to the Rose Theater. Opens at 5:00, for dinner.

We sat upstairs in a cozy bar atmosphere. After a grueling hike, we were ravenous, and the food didn't disappoint! I felt the server could have done a better job informing us of which extras on our burgers cost extra (I was surprised to find them later on my bill). I also felt some of those extras were overpriced (i.e.... More

The restaurant is small and quaint with a second floor seating area and bar overlooking the main floor. We had a peppered steak and cioppino that were very large and tasted great. Deserts were just as good as the main courses. I highly recommend the restaurant. Well worth the stop.

We had to wait 50 minutes for our dinner but the food was very good. We would return but plan accordingly (would not arrive hungry). It must be a tough place to be a server though. Hard to make a living on tips if the management doesn't staff it adequately. We were sympathetic to our server and left a good... More

David and Alison have owned the Silverwater Cafe since its opening in 1989. They have built the restaurant on the idea that bringing people together to enjoy good food, good wine and great friends is one of the most important things in life; and the desire to be a thriving addition to this lovely community of Port Townsend that we call home.We believe in quality and strive to continually perfect our craft. We at the Silverwater Cafe invite you in for a moment of casual elegance where you can feel at home with your kids, family and friends.
