Have been going to the Front Street Grill since it opened. It has always been a delight.
Food is great and the staff, from host to servers very polite and helpful.Chuck Suggs

We've rediscovered the Front
We've rediscovered the Front Street Grill over the past couple of months and think the menu changes (from when they first opened) are really great. Standard menu items such as the Pork Chops and the Crab Cakes are always top of the line, while their specials (I had the salmon) are excellantly prepared and really do melt in your mouth (better than M & M's). We've switched from the higher priced restaurant in Oak Harbor to beccome a regular at the Front Street Grill (plus, service is always excellant).

I gave service a 3 because we did not get refills on our water until we got our check and asked for it. Also it seemed the waitress was too busy and had too many tables, since she would drop off the food then leave immediately.

The staff was very friendly
The staff was very friendly and welcoming. They were patient and accomodating, considering I was eating a pre-marathon meal. The spinach salad is large enough to share. The restaurant has a great water view.

A lovely night out
This is fun place for a night out. Make sure you get reservations as it can fill up very fast. Lovely, varied mussel preparations.

Fabulous! Altogether Fabulous!
Fabulous! Altogether Fabulous! We reserved a certain table twice in two months and were escorted to that very table both times! Friendly and welcoming! We will continue to call this place second home for evening out. Added plus to receive emails with upcoming events - always a tempting invitation! Thanks! Two seniors from Greenbank!

Great food, service fair
Warmly greeted when we arrived. Our order was promptly taken and the entrees returned in good time. Great food. We ordered the wild salmon dinner and the coconut curry mussels. Would have liked a little bit more attentive service after our food and drinks were delivered.

A great find
There are not that many good restaurants on South Whidbey, but Front Street Grill definitely fits securely into that select group. What a wonderful addition to the Island food scene, with wonderful food, excellent service and a great atmosphere (assuming you can stand the high level of noise).

Always like coming to this place because of the all around great experience. Good service, great food, and amazing view. No better place to get some fresh mussels!

Food was good. They have local
Food was good. They have local seafood as well as burgers and salads. Great wine list, and right on the water. Get a reservation if you are going for dinner even during the week. (this will also help you get a window seat)

Good food and good energy
The service was very good. This was a great spot to take some out of town friends for some really fresh seafood and great burgers. Wine choices were excellent and there is a goof vibe and great scenery in the restaurant.

Mussels you will dream about!
We are new inhabitants of Coupeville and have recently discovered this restaurant. Had heard rumors of the decadent Thai Coconut mussels but could not imagine how delicious they really were. Our son was very sad that he had not ordered them. The waitor was fabulous and kept us in fresh bread from the oven. It was an incredible meal. We will definitely be back!

Good every time
We ate here for two lunches and one dinner (same menu) on a two day visit to Whidbey. They're doing most everything right. We ate here last year too and loved it then. A pound of mussels is a lot of mussels. The Coconut Green Curry preparation was excellent, but the plain white wine preparation included rosemary twigs and I hate rosemary. We appreciated that the beers on tap included our favorites: Aviator Porter and Mac 'n Jacks. Currently, there's live music on Wednesday nights.

Front Street delight
We had dinner at Front Street Grill on a clear day that allowed us to enjoy an incredible view of kayakers, Puget Sound and mountains. We were seated immediately, served by friendly staff, and had a great dinner. The portions were perfect - so many restaurants served ridiculously huge meals. The salmon was fresh and perfectly grilled, my husband's mussels were delicious. The vegetables were cooked to a delicious crunch. Desserts were very good, and featured locally grown rhubarb and strawberries. The wine list featured local Whidbey Island wines. The restaurant was a bit noisy, but we had were able to easily have a conversation and enjoy our evening. We would definitely go again. Thank you Front Street Grill for a great night.

Some nights a roll is served with oil avd balsamic vinegar, other nights, with the same entree, it is not offered.

Incredible gem on whidbey island!
We have eaten here several times and our experiences are always stellar! We love the fresh menu and the fact that the chef purchases local produce and quality, local, free range meats. The entrees are excellent and there are many reliable stand-bys for the average diner, but foodies rejoice--this is one place you do not want to miss!!

Great eats in Coupeville!
Fantastic flavors, magnificent mussels, wonderful wine & stunning sunset! Great recommendation!

In the dozen or so times we've eaten at the Front Street Grill the food is consistently good. Highly recommend any of the mussels as well as the fish tacos.

I suspect their seafood is
I suspect their seafood is their main strength. We had a side salad to start, which was excellent. I had a ribeye which was thin and dry. I ordered it medium and it was pink, but dry.

My husband and I went for our anniversary, in the reservation I asked for a window seat and got it! Food was delicious! Drinks were also VERY good! Our waitress was friendly and attentive. Great food, drinks, service and view...we will defiantly be back!

Great spot on Whidbey Island
We live here so have been to Front Street Grill a number of times. Always great food and friendly wait staff. Beautiful view also. I would say the only thing is it is noisy. I was there with some friends I hadn't seen in a while and conversation was difficult. This was a busy Saturday afternoon with lots of kids. Otherwise a great experience and we all loved our food!

Gem on the Cove
Sit overlooking Penn Cove while you enjoy one of over a dozen creative ways to prepare the world-famous Penn Cove mussels that were caught the same day from the waters you're looking at. Excellent wait staff and accommodating management. Good martinis, too!
I love coming to Front Street Grill; now when friends say, "where shall we go," FSG is often my first suggestion.

Good food, not worth the price.
My wife and I decided late at night to go out for dinner and stumbled upon Front Street Grill. Being a Saturday night, we expected the place to be fairly busy, so we made last minute reservations online. When we arrived, there were four people in the bar area, and we were the only patrons in the dining area. We each enjoyed a cup of chowder and a very nice steak. The large selection of sides let us each choose what we wanted to go with them, which was a new experience. Overall the food was good with a unique, local flavor, but way over priced. At $5 a bowl for the chowder and $24-27 a plate, it made for a very expensive night out. I was hesitant to tip due to the price, but did anyways as the hostess and waitress were very friendly.

We had dinner to celebrate
We had dinner to celebrate my husband's birthday. The food was good, as was the wine, and the overall experience was nice. I wish more than one dinner roll was given out to each person though; and a mussel fork was buried under the food of my husband's dish, which was disconcerting. The hostess was excellent, waiter was OKAY, not great.

Local & Love it!
We dine here regularly for lunch. Front Street Grill always delivers a pleasant experience.

Came here on a recommendation
Came here on a recommendation from A friend. Ordered the pork chops, very juicy and flavorful. The view was amazing and out waitress was attentive and quick. All in all it was a great experience and I will be returning.

I took my girlfriend here for Homecoming Dinner. It was awesome. It was crowded but it's homecoming so it should be expected. Everyone gave us service above and beyond. Sometimes as 16 year olds you are treated differently but we were treated equal which was nice. The food was great, the Crème Brulee was amazing overall a great experience! Service, food and ambience is all outstanding.

This is a perfect place for date night or to meet up with friends. Enjoy the view of Penn Cove. The menu is both simple and sophisticated whether you like burgers or seafood!

Both food and view are spectacular
With 3 kids at home, my husband and I don't get out too much, but when we do, we choose to go to the Front Street Grill. We were celebrating our anniversary and the restaurant definately delivered a wonderful experience for us. The food was delicious and the view and atmosphere were perfect. A+
