Toby's is a local hangout. The best fish n chips to die for mussels and great draft beer. It is more of a bar setting with food. If you can get the back seat you will have great Penn Cove viewing. You might get lucky...More

If you like beer, Penn Cove mussels, clam chowder or halibut & chips, this is the place. It's not fancy, just a good old tavern on the edge of Penn Cove in Coupeville. The age and atmosphere in the place plus the great food make...More

On one of my visits to Whidbey Island, we ran across Toby's. Because my dog is named Toby, I had to go in. It's a perfect dusty dive bar of sorts. The food, fast and filling. The service, friendly and fast, even on busy times....More
