Great place after touring the rose gardens and park. We arrived about 530 on a weekday and parking was plentiful. Stay to the left as you drive down the hill to avoid getting in the ferry traffic queue. We were able to get an outside...More

We sat on the deck, watched the world (well maybe not the world!) go by and enjoyed a wonderful meal. All the staff were lovely and helpful. I had a meal off the fish of the day menu and it was delicious.

The food and service here is great. I especially recommend the all you can eat fish & chips on Mondays. They are lightly breaded and delicious. And yes, the view of the Vashon ferry coming and going is very cool.
