We were just looking for a place to have a small meal and tried this unassuming restaurant. I had the Chowder Bowl and my wife ordered the Cod and Chips. Both were very large servings and promptly served. We were delighted with the quality and...More

We stopped in for a light dinner and I got the small portion of the seafood boil. It was great, and plenty of food if you aren’t a glutton. Mussels, clams, fish, sausage, potatoes, and corn in a fair portion for $18. My husband had...More

Reading the reviews I thought we might try this place for dinner. Ordered Cioppino but was shocked at how all the ingredients tasted like rubber, obviously the last of the pot and everything was overcooked. Crab cocktail was good, little too much sauce. Chowder was...More

We found this place by accident, it was one of the only places open on a Tuesday, when apparently, the rest of Langley shuts down. What great find!! Not only do they have a full slate of fresh oysters, (8+ kinds), the seafood is amazing....More

I got onto this restaurant as three shopkeepers said it was their favorite in town. There’s an excellent mussel and seafood selection. I enjoyed a great vegan meal which was healthy and perfectly prepared from the menu. It’s a cozy atmosphere with seating at tables,...More

My group of 8 ate here on a Saturday afternoon. The seating situation wasn't great and there seemed to be some internal struggle with the staff. Bottom line 6 sat together and 2 others sat together elsewhere. The salmon bits were excellent, served with goat...More

This restaurant replaced our favorite one, Cafe Langley. The bar takes up half the space. The prices are too high for what you get compared to other restaurants on the Island. The food is good, but not outstanding. We tried it once, but will not...More

A tiny bar and café in scenic Langley on beautiful Whidbey Island. But don’t let its trifling size dissuade you, that would be a mistake. For the flavors are enormous. Stopping in for a casual lunch, we were promptly seated in the window booth. The...More

A seafood place coming to you from the folks at Prima Bistro. We've heard loud and clear from our customers for 11 years that you wanted a specifically seafood focused restaurant in Langley and, well, here we are! Fish and chips, clam chowder, lobster rolls, crab cakes, mussels, clams, and a great oyster selection are just the tip of the iceberg (yes, we do have a wedge salad!). full bar.
