Restaurant & TAVERN


Our “living room style” restaurant and dining room reflect Captain Whidbey’s warm and casual approach to hospitality. As our central multi-use space, the custom and eclectic tables and banquettes at the restaurant at Captain Whidbey are as suitable for an exquisite house-made meal as they are for sketching, writing, watercoloring or sparkling conversation. 

The restaurant is helmed by Chef Eric Truglas, whose menu veers towards the French, rustic and hearty, with inventive shellfish dishes, breakfast boards, local produce from our garden, house-smoked meats, house-cured pickles and salmon, homemade bread, jam and other delicacies.

On the North Side of the restaurant, you’ll find our bustling back deck. With sweeping, sunlit views of Penn Cove and beyond, the waterfront deck is an iconic Whidbey Island destination. Enjoy mussels from Penn Cove or a cocktail from the bar and stay awhile — the deck is open late.
