My husband & I wanted to take a drive to the north end of Whidbey Island this last Sunday, and ended up in Coupeville. I punched in local restaurants on my iPhone, and found this site. Well, after reviewing the first two reviews, we decided to take our chances and have a looksey for ourselves, even if just for the entertainment value alone.
Well, I'm happy to say, I'm not sure where those others ate, but the Mad Crab we went to was wonderful, very clean and charming. Our
waitress was sweet and friendly, service was fast and the food was incredible. The prices were right inline with fresh seafood - about $20 per entrée. The seafood was wonderful - we had the steamed mussels, the mussel linguine and the fresh Dungeness crab cakes.
All was yummy, served hot and wasn't over-salted.
If you're wanting a waterfront restaurant with fresh seafood on a leisurely weekend drive, we highly recommend The Mad Crab in Coupeville, WA. We're giving it 2 thumbs up!
Like the other gal said in her post, the 2 negative posts are almost criminal, very unfounded and should be disregarded. If in question, try it yourselves.
