Coupeville

  • 9

We will be on Coupeville next week. On my list is Mosquito Fleet Chili Co, Oyster Catcher (although I think it is open TH-SUN and we will miss it), Naples Pizza, Ciao, Front Street Grill. Anything else we should put on our list? We will be having breakfast at our B&B.

  1. Mosquito Fleet Chili Co. is great, don't miss the peach cobbler there iff it's on the menu while you're there. You may want to get over to Freeland and check out Grodon'ts @ Blueberry Hill. We had an aweosme meal there when we were on Whidbey Island last summer. :)

      I will second the rec for Gordons. We have eaten there many times and it is always outstanding. You will not be sorry for the drive to Freeland.

        Honestly, I don't understand the praise and recommendations for Gordon's. My brother-in-law, who lives in Langley, keeps taking my wife and me there and it has never surpassed ordinary. I will choose Prima Bistro over Gordon's any day. In Coupeville, I vote for Christophers, Mosquito Fleet, and Knead & Feed.

          I think at Gordon's (as at many places) it depends upon what you order, maybe who is cooking. Perhaps the same can be said for Prima Bistro, I never had a meal there that surpassed ordinary.

        I'll third (or fourth) on Gordon's in Freeland. Best dinner spot on the island, in my humble opinion. (Full disclosure; although I used to go fairly frequently, I haven't eaten there in a couple years.)

      2. While I do not wish to quibble with the recommendations for Gordon's, there is no need to drive 20 miles to eat there. There are plenty of options in C-ville. Mosquito Fleet for breakfast or lunch, Knead & Feed is another option. No visit to Whidbey island is complete without a stop in Toby's Tavern for mussels or a burger. You may wish to substitute Christophers for the Front Street Grill. The owners of the Grill have not quite gotten their act together, but Christophers never disappoints.

        The pizza place is Ciao, not Naples Pizza. It's excellent!

        Another option is Thai at the Cove, across the street from Ciao, if you are looking for something different.

          I will second Christophers, plus, as I recall, it's right next to the Bay Leaf, if you want to pick up wine, cheese, condiments, miscellaneous tasty items.

          1. re: L.Nightshade

            We got down to Freeland, but not at a meal time, so we skipped Gordon's. We had very good meals at Front Street Grill and Christopher's. We had a beer at Toby's each night, and wanted to eat there, but ran out of time.
