Great atmosphere! My husband and I went for a visit a while back and we were extremely pleased with the great food and can't wait to visit again next time we are on Whidbey.

1. Whenever we know someone is going near Tobey's we tell them that if you want the best fish 'n chips or Penn Cove mussels, this is the place! Whenever we are back there, this is always no. 1 on our list to do! Golfing Grandma

2. Mussels never fresher or better I have never had fresher or better mussels ANYWHERE. Mak

3. My boyfriend and had the cod fish and chips and I had the seafood combo and chips, which came with cod, shrimp, and clams. My plate was literally overflowing with fried goodness. I was surprised at how much food there was. The clams and shrimp were good, but the cod was the hands down winner of the meal. Super dense and super tasty. Sonya L., Edmonds, WA

4. This is a great place to hang out.....great clam chowder, great local mussels, the house red wine is very nice , the prices are good, the ambience is local and apparently is a traditional stop for vacationers but the best thing is the staff, They are helpful and genuine. I love this can sit at the bar and get great service and some friendly conversation or sit at a table overlooking beautiful Penn Cove.... Martha M. Coupeville, WA

5. Sue and Dahlia made us feel like we were locals from the moment we walked in the door! Get the Penn Cove World Famous Mussels! Good gravy!!! Those suckers are a slurpin' good time! DeAnna L. Nashville , TN

6. I was on Whidbey for one week and went here three times. I still dream about stuffing my face full of those succulent, sweet mussels and dunking the accompanying garlic bread in their sexy, fragrant juices. The mussels here are pulled straight from the cove outside the window, so they are as fresh as my sweet Baby H.'s fat, pink cheeks, and almost as irresistible. They are simply prepared in a broth of onions, garlic, wine and herbs so as to showcase their amazing flavor. Mussels, mussels, mussels. Nothing else matters.
If you care about other things besides amazing mussels, you will appreciate the gorgeous view of Penn Cove, delicious Parrot Red Beer, and the cozy, local feel of the place. I also had a burger one night that was pretty good, and fish n' chips that were amazing. Rachel H., El Cerrito, CA

7. I love Toby's. The best place for fresh mussels, nostalgia and a view of Penn Cove to boot. My wife and I often make this trip from Seattle as a fun day trip. Take the ferry and drive to Coupeville for 2 lbs of steamers and some cold beers. Yummy fish and chips. You can't beat it. Jeff S. Seattle, WA

Located in the scenic town of Coupeville, WA, on beautiful Whidbey Island, Toby’s Tavern is everything you hope a small town tavern might be.... and more!


With scenic Penn Cove just outside the windows and views of the Cascade Mountains in the distance, Toby’s is especially well known for serving up generous portions of world famous Penn Cove mussels. Pair this mouth watering dish with your favorite beer or wine, and you’ll have a feast to remember.


Built in 1860 for use as a mercantile store, the structure is the oldest building on the waterfront and has housed many businesses. Following prohibition, it became a beer parlor, and has been a tavern and restaurant since the early sixties. They’ve been the center for good cheer on Central Whidbey for generations. At Toby’s you’ll experience the feel of an old pub in a small town setting.


Come to Toby’s Tavern on historic Front Street in downtown Coupeville for food, drinks, a game of pool, and fun!
