Lots of locals and tourists eating and drinking at this restaurant. This is a sign of a good spot. We ate here twice during our visit. Will definitely return.

This is our favorite place for fish and chips and fish tacos. Price is right, wait staff are quick and upbeat, food is great. We keep thinking we should try their hamburgers, but we are so in love with their fish we always stick with that. Except the reuben sandwich--have had that a couple of times and it's great too....

This place is always hopping, and for a good reason! Everything is good here - food, drinks, and service. We've been going here for years and were quite excited when they opened up one side of the pub to families until 8pm. Now we could take our son down with us to enjoy their awesome food!

We went here a few times during a recent business trip. Food is decent and they have a reasonable selection of drinks. It's a hangout for locals as well as tourists. Typical pub-style atmosphere. No frills.

The Brown, as the locals call it, has a friendly atmosphere along with a broad selection of beers and spirits. They also serve good food and provide excellent service. If you're in Anacortes, you have to at least experience it once.
