Creative food & drink lovingly prepared from locally sourced ingredients, on Washington's beautiful Kitsap Peninsula.

Walking distance from the Kingston Ferry yet miles from the beaten path, Mossback is an independently-owned restaurant in a century-old farmhouse offering up inspired dishes & cocktails utilizing the unique flavors of the Pacific Northwest.  Seasonality, creativity, & close relationships with small farms & local producers inspire our constantly evolving menus.

"To be interested in food but not in food production is clearly absurd"

~Wendell Berry

We can do what we do only because of the amazing community of growers, producers and craftspeople that make up our local foodshed.  These people put their passion, ideals, ethics and seemingly inexhaustible energy into growing and producing the wonderful ingredients, beverages, cheeses, ferments, etc. that we feel privileged to work with every day.  

We love these people, and want you to know about them.
