  1. Catherine Hovind

    This is an amazing place for a special meal! The menu was unique, the food was cooked to perfection, and the service was excellent. Overall, my experience here was incredible!

  2. Andrea P

    A.Town Bistro is a gem. One of our favorite restaurants in Washington State. The service is fabulous and the food is out of this world yummy. They use the best quality ingredients and always offer local fare. Simply put…Delicious, Fabulous, Awesome!

  3. Thad Caperton

    Came for the French onion soup and was not disappointed! Nice, heated outdoor space and incredibly friendly staff, which is a refreshing change from Seattle.

  4. Grant Weber

    My attempt at superlatives will not do this place justice… the paella was one of the best meals of my life, and my partner said the same about the clam chowder. Meals are made to order, so they have no fuss to accommodate any substitution/omissions/adjustments. Great server/service, stiff drink (“spirit forward” cocktails), great menu and sufficient dessert. A-town Bistro should be at the top of our list for a great meal in Anacortes.

  5. Nicole Geleynse

    The food is always amazing. The staff is incredible and so knowledgeable. My husband and I look forward to eating there as often as possible.

  6. Martha Schoenthal

    Great food, attentive wait staff, relaxing atmosphere. Had the “Indoor Picnic” – wow, what a variety and a treat, followed by best Paella ever.

  7. Dave Thomas

    The food was amazing and the staff was very attentive. I will be bringing my family here for sure!

  8. Alexa Axtman

    Definitely worth the price, not somewhere to overlook. My boyfriend and I had dinner here and were very impressed with the service all around. Our appetizer, drinks and main course were all 5 star. Without a reservation we sat at the end of the bar, overlooking the end of the kitchen. Our bartender was polite, friendly, quick and worked with class. I was able to witness this amazing women in the kitchen who cooked at least 5 dishes the whole time. One for the books. Picture of the Nerka King.

    A’Town Bistro was the high point of our recent visit to Anacortes, Bellingham, and La Conner. My husband and I wanted a piece of everything on the menu, and finally decided on braised short ribs and duck confit ramen. We were delighted.
    Drinks before dinner and dessert after were just as tasty. Our vivacious server Crystal was professional, charming, and funny. Please push your yellow star ratings just a bit farther to the right, to give A’Town five full stars!

  10. Dame SinCyr

    Drinks were awesome, the salmon was tasty, serves was spectacular! But my burger was overcooked and overpriced.

  11. Patrick Conlan

    Tried the Paella this time and can recommend this as well, good selection of squid, pork belly, mussels, clams and chorizo, with a spicy kick. Wait staff were great again. We’re so lucky to have a well run restaurant right here in Anacortes.

    Small but well crafted menu with a Northwest focus. The Clam Chowder is outstanding, made with local clams. Good selections of beers/ciders, wines and craft cocktails. Excellent pastry as well. Strongly recommended if you’re in search of a city-quality restaurant in Skagit/Island County.

  12. Robert Hughes

    Amazing clam chowder. The server was likewise great. I must go back as their menu looks fantastic.

  13. Kimberly Gattey

    A’Town is our go-to place for special occasions. They have incredible food with the most beautiful plating. The paella was perfect. The black cod had way too much cumin in the sauce but I think that had to be accidental. The picnic plate is the most beautiful charcuterie board I have seen at a restaurant. All the flavors and textures complemented each other. We added a chicken pate to ours.

  14. James Prouty

    My wife and I ordered the clam chowder and smoked duck ramen for dinner and dark chocolate mousse for dessert. Everything was delicious. Best clam chowder we have had. The ramen was a great pairing for variance in taste, as we shared each dish. We were both stuffed, but went for dessert as recommended by our awesome waitress Crystal. It was amazing. Great food, friendly energetic service.

  15. Raman Pfaff

    Great restaurant with superb staff. I’ve been here twice while traveling in the area and think it’s the best place in town. Best to to to get a reservation because it’s often packed.

  16. Lindsay M

    The garlic scapes were out of this world. Mixed reviews though because everything my friend got was amazing (asparagus tart and short rib), and everything I got was “meh” (poppy salad and PNW cod). Kinda wish someone told me to order something else because I could easily see this place becoming a favorite.

  17. Katie Pukatch

    A’Town Bistro was overall a good experience. Good drinks. Cocktails, wine, and beer were very good. Most of the food we got was great, including the scotch egg, the tart, and the chowder. The snapper/fish dish was severely lacking. The plating needs editing, the flavors were all over the place, AND most criminal, the fish was way over done and inedible.

  18. Laurie Halte

    We had a mixed experience at A’Town. Servers were great, atmosphere fun and comfortable. Drinks were fabulous although a bit overpriced at $14 each. The charcuterie a la carte was a great way to sample just what you wanted. The paella was way over cooked, and did not contain any seafood other than mussels, clams and way too much squid. The bacon was phenomenal, but we just couldn’t get past the burnt rice. The owner/ manager was pretentious, no smile, or eye contact. The bus person was fabulous. Low man on the tier gave the best service, hope the manager takes some cues from his staff.

  19. Amanda Puckett

    Great dining experience; would recommend a reservation! I loved their unique take on calm chowder, their fun appetizers and the paella!

  20. Kent Schluter

    Best menu in Skagit County. By far the best clam chowder and most creative food. Great crew and attentive service make this a fun place

  21. christina d

    I wish I had taken pictures of the charcuterie board, but I was too busy enjoying. Also, the French onion soup was first rate.
    I highly recommend this place!

  22. Deby Rourke

    We had a wonderful dinner here, the food was delicious, and full of wonderful flavors. Our server, Kaye was fantastic and made sure we were taken care of, and everything was just right!

  23. Sandor Scher

    This place cares about ingredients, seasonings, flavor, preparation and cooking on another level. The staff is spectacular, and they all really care about what they are doing. It’s special.

  24. Daniel Hodun

    As an update: only open for dinner but their service is top notch. This is a must reserve place in Anacortes. I brought a friend who had specific dietary needs and they were able to produce a fantastic dish for them. It is definitely worth a visit and I’d take a date here.

    If you want a true clam chowder with real clams, this is the place to go to. It is a must stop for lunch if up in Anacortes. It is true made to order and it is quite hearty.

  25. Lori Goats

    LOVE this place! We arrived a little after 5 and they were already packed so make a reservation if you can. They sat us at the bar and we had such a great time! Pictured is the paella (amazing) and the red snapper. Hubby also ordered Kimchi and I even liked it, which I normally don’t. If you’re in the area, don’t pass up this place!

  26. Aaron Jensen

    Food was fresh and varied with great combinations of flavors. Great date night spot for sure….

  27. Patrick Baumann

    The French onion soup is great. The rest of the food is average to slightly above. 3.5 stars.

  28. Holly Cruise

    We had a great meal at A’town! Both the salmon and the short ribs were cooked to perfection— I don’t think I’ve had a better piece of fish in my life. All of the “supporting cast” of flavours were excellent, very thoughtfully executed, and with attention to detail. Our server (Crystal?) was excellent, warm and friendly and fast. The room is bustling but still intimate, comfortable and spacious with the right amount of lighting.

  29. Tom Wodzianek

    The paella might be the greatest dish known to humans. By far the best restaurants in Anacortes, probably Washington State. Honestly, shocked.

  30. rob hanson

    Creative and expertly executed menu with a professional staff in a warm and comfortable atmosphere. My favorite restaurant within 100 miles!

  31. Lauren Kenny Link

    We absolutely love this quaint little bistro! Amazing freshly prepared food with mind-blowing flavor. Crystal sealed the deal with her vibrant fun personality and excellent service. We highly recommend this experience and will be returning!

  32. Jason Amos

    Amazingly friendly staff, delicious craft cocktails and the vibe was terrific. Definitely coming back next time I’m in Anacortes
