We stayed here with an Amazon Local deal, basically two nights for the price of one. Well worth the deal. We checked in after camping on San Juan and Lopez. Cute place, nice breakfast provided. We were hoping for more of a view of Deer Harbor, but for the price it was very nice and cozy. Private bathrooms and a... More

We ate here twice since we could just walk from our cabin. Dinner the first night was good, especially the split pea soup. The second night we had the appetizer of fried oysters, split pea soup, and berry cobbler. The oysters were among the best I've ever eaten and I'm extremely picky about oysters! We were seated outside so we... More

Our meals were well prepared and service was good. The view is outstanding. A bit pricey, which is why I'm only giving it a 4.

As mentioned earlier we were unable to contact management, staff, etc. even when we called the numbers listed in the office. This is an absentee managed property as nearly as the three of us could tell in our two days there.

Average food with nice service. The effort is there but the sides for each entree were the same. Large portions and family style service assured no one left hungry.

Pleasant, old school family restaurant. Pea soup so-so, dinner salad great (the best thing by far), bread and butter good. Both entrees were terrible and incredibly (this is NOT an exaggeration) small. Very disappointing considering the large price tag. Service was quite slow also, but it's hard to get worked up about it since it's a family restaurant off the... More

Ran into a local in East Sound who we grilled on good places to eat on the Island. He highly recommended Deer Harbor for their Sunday night fired chicken special. After arriving we were a bit surprised to see that the special was 24.00 for a fired chicken dinner but it did include, bread, soup and a fresh salad, all... More

All four of us enjoyed our entrees and local wines from the nice wine list. The service was just right.

I live on this island and the Deer Harbor Inn is our restaurant of choice to go to whether we want an intimate dinner for 2 or have a crowd visiting. Bread, soup and salad are included in the price of the meal and are served family style. Ingredients in the soup and salad come from their garden. We've been... More

This is a great place to stop, especially if you are tired of cooking aboard your boat in the San Juan's. The Inn and restaurant are a short hike from the harbor and the food was scrumptious. ( fresh halibut, perfectly prepared!) The view from the outdoor deck was spectacular!
