Stopped in while travelling from Portland to Seattle. Had great expectations but they were not met at all. Halibut Fish n Chips: frozen halibut so not very juicy, batter was really thick and soaked up plenty of grease (fryer oil), peeled most of it off...More

A local fast food joint, not much else to say. Prices are a little high for the type of food served and not much of a menu. Service took awhile because the place gets so busy and there aren't many people working behind the counter.

So you think with a name like Cap'n Yoby's, all they do is fish right? Wrong! While their breaded and deep fried halibut is wonderful, we go there for their scrumptious burgers! It's hard to go wrong with whatever you order here, and their drive...More
