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

stone's throw

Nestled into a cliffside neighborhood which is just off the beaten path, yet walking distance from the Kingston Ferry, Mossback is a unique restaurant built inside of a 100 year old farm house.  Seasonality, creativity, whim, & close relationships with small farms and local producers inspire our ever changing menu.  A passion for food, along with a strong DIY ethic, drives us to craft as much as we can from scratch, from our breads and pastas, to cheeses, ice creams & sodas.  That sense of inspired invention also manifests itself in our constantly-evolving menu of craft cocktails.

We're just really having fun. 

The warmth of an old house,  an al fresco dining area with beautiful sunsets & gentle breezes off of the Puget Sound, inspired offerings & a knowledgeable, friendly staff combine to create an authentically welcoming environment for intimate conversations & festive, communal gatherings alike.

From time to time, Mossback indulges it's inner child and plays dress up. To the unsuspecting visitor, we appear to be nothing more than a mild-mannered farm-to-Table restaurant...  little doES ONE suspect that we are capable of transforming, from time to time, into our PARTY-TIME-TACo-SLINGING-alter-EGO:

"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.  If our restaurant is good, it's only because we didn't mess up their hard work.
