We were hungry for dinner and someone from the Anacortes yacht club steered us to the The Brown Lantern Ale House when we inquired about a local place to eat. The place is definitely a pub. There was Sunday football playing on TV. We ordered burgers and beers. The server was friendly and kept the beers coming. A great local... More

The Brown Lantern was everything I love about pubs. It's authentic, quaint, and serves up a great pint! I enjoyed a Guinness, but they serve several local brews on tap. You can even purchase a growler to take home your favorite ale. I enjoyed the hot soft pretzel with cheddar cheese - fantastic! A woman next to me ordered a... More

Small towns, like families, have unwritten rules that one does not know exist until they break them. So was my experience last week upon walking through the doors of the Brown Lantern Ale House. The sign said seat yourself, which our party of four did and our waiter, a friendly curly-haired young man, took our drink orders of lemon water... More

It was loud and the host was running around and seemed frazzled but the food was good. The burgers were hot, big, and tasty and the fries were great too.

We found this place on Yelp after returning from a whale tour in the San Juan Islands. (highly recommend Orcas Eclipse Charters, btw) We came in at 7 and were told by the waitress in a nice way that we needed to be out by 8 with the kids, apparently some ordinance because its a restaurant/bar. They were out of... More

I stayed at the Majestic Inn across the street for one night, and stopped here for dinner. They had a brewery there giving away raffle prizes, and the atmosphere was very festive. There is a bar side and a restaurant side. I sat at the bar on the restaurant side and enjoyed a chicken sandwich and fries, perfect after a... More

Had lunch after kayaking bowman bay. Try the habanero chicken sandwich, a local favorite. Kids enjoyed their meal. Fish and chips was a hearty portion. They have a family side of the tavern.
