I am a frequent visitor to Coupeville, and a lover of shellfish, but this was my first visit to the Front Street Grill. The facility is clean and stylish, with a gorgeous view over Penn Cove. But don’t be fooled. It also has WAY too many tables for the floor space. Diners are jammed together with absolutely no aisles to... More

A local Seattleite told us about this place and we are so glad she did. The mussels are amazingly fresh! They weren't chewy at all and both were sauced/seasoned to perfection. We ordered the linguini but barely ate any. The mussels were the spotlight and we actually received very healthy portions. We went in November so we were able to... More

Front street grill offers a great quisine from salmon to sandwiches. You on a good day can sit outside and view Penn Cove while enjoying your food choice of the day. Any thing you choose on the menu is good. It can get hard to find a seat during high season, summer.

We ate dinner here when we last visited Coupeville. Great seafood, great microbrew beer. Great views over the water towards Mt Baker.

absolutely delicious! I ordered the Muscles Rockerfeller and my husband ordered the Pork Chop. My husband was really quite during the meal and I finally asked him if it was ok, and he said "it's pretty much amazing"! My muscles were for sure fresh and perfectly cooked, sooo good! The view is great and the surrounding shops are nice. The... More

When I see a Front Street restaurant that is very busy, it says to me that locals and visitors alike know something that I don't know. I followed the crowd and was very pleasantly surprised. The oysters are excellent.

Looking for a classy waterfront cafe close to the culinary wonder that is Penn Cove? You're in luck. Front Street Grill is serving up all the classics you can think of. I had the classic Penn Cove Mussels with a Ceaser Salad. Not a bad place for the family. Appetizers are over priced. Food is decent. Seems like most of... More

Enjoyed dinner. I had mussels in curry sauce which were very spicy - and very good. View of Penn Cove was very nice.

We took our Moms on an outing to Coupeville and ate lunch here. The menu options were wonderful and we had trouble making a decision. Everyone's food was perfect, plus a couple appetizers and the cream cheese brownie dessert! We'll be back, hopefully in the evening when we can try some of the creative cocktails!

We ate here our first night in Coupeville. I ordered a beer which was quite alright. The pasta dish we ordered was very ordinary, the soup was way over salted as if someone had made a mistake and dumped the whole salt shaker in the soup. No bread at all was put on the table and they did nothing to... More
