We went to this place on recommendation of friends. We were somewhat disappointed. This is a bar and grill and they have a lot of stuffed animal heads mounted on the walls (deer, moose, buffalo, etc.). That sort of thing turns my wife off right from the start. The food, however, was quite good. I had the clam strips and... More

We have been going to Toby's for several years, and have always enjoyed the mussels. This time it was a huge disappointment. The mussels were tiny, with about half having beards still attached, broken shells, and very little flavor. I feel like we were served seconds. Not sure I will return, as my son had a similar experience in July.

We ate (and drank brews, of course) at this tavern one afternoon, and it then became our 'go to place' for the remainder of our 7 days on Whidbey Island. You must go to this place at least once if you visit the island. Great food (wonderful broiled cod sandwich), great beers, great waitstaff. Check out the deep-fried underpants hanging... More

Nice local bar to stop for a beer. Fish and chips were just ok. Should have had the mussels....they looked pretty good. Great service.

My Dad really enjoyed watching the Seahawk Game at the tavern - think he entertained a few people at the bar

Grabbed a quick bite to eat the evening before their big festival after setting up. Wasn't terribly hungry so had a small salad and shared some fries with my boss. The fries were sooo good, salad was a salad. There was nothing that stood out, but it wasn't a bad experience. Coupeville is a very small town so everyone knows... More

We stopped in Coupeville after our ferry ride for lunch. Mussels were being pitched at all the restaurants on Front Street so we checked in with the visitor center for a recommendation. Recommendations for specific restaurants are not allowed but by the time we left the office we learned the "only" way to eat mussels steamed and the book of... More

Cozy little restaurant next to the water, brew some of their own beer. The muscles are great and the fresh fish and chips are good.

Tried to have late lunch here. Stood there for 5-6 minutes and not a soul would even acknowledge that we were there. It ended up being the best thing that could've happened because we then found Christopher's which was EXCELLENT!!!

Taken here by friends, great food and beer, delightful staff, with relaxed slightly "funky" atmosphere, not high dining but great fun, and the beer is very good.
