We recently went with the San Juan Island Yacht Club for dinner at the Deer Harbor Inn. There were approximately forty people. The food was outstanding and the service was terrific. I don't believe I've had such a nice meal with so many people. The staff was friendly, courteous and just couldn't do enough to make you happy. Plus, they... More

Deer Harbor Inn is a destination and not just someplace you drive by and say let's stop. Do yourself a favor.mmfind it, stop,many enjoy. Our San Juan Island Yacht Club in Friday Harbor, WA, has enjoyed its Saturday dinner here in October for several years and it's always outstanding. Feeding 40+ people at once isn't hard. Having them leave with... More

We were told that this was the only restaurant in town and one of the best on the Island - boy was that right! It was a lovely warm evening and we decided this would be where we had our anniversary dinner. We were met promptly as we arrived and seated on the deck overlooking the harbor where we could... More

This is a lovely spot to eat - the food was great and the service was super! The best part, though, was being greeted by the world's tamest deer in the parking lot, and then seeing bunnies and a mama deer with her fawn by the driveway when we left...it was like being in an enchanted forest! :D

Short walk from the marina to Deer Harbor Inn Restaurant with a sign on Deer Harbor road pointing to a shortcut. Well traveled path less than 50 yards leads to restaurant. Service was a bit slow, but our server did inform us they were short staffed...and she was hustling. Food was better than I expected, everything was fresh. Started off... More

I can't even pronounce the dish but it was the best dinner ever. It started with split pea soup (which I normally won't touch) and salad. The seafood dish was loaded with clams, scallops, shrimp, fish, etc. There was minimal fettuccine noodles and sauce, just the right amount. We sit outside and there were small deer in the field while... More

There aren't many restaurants in Deer Harbor. We stayed at a nearby B & B for 5 nights, and ate here twice. Service was good, food was good to very good, view is awesome. But it is OVER PRICED.

We used Ryan for our rehearsal and wedding night meals. The pizza cooked in the wood burning stove he brought to the property still have people raving weeks later. Having the option for gluten free was a hit and actually tasted great! Wedding night reviews on the food were that the oysters were the best anyone had ever had, the... More

We all enjoyed our meals, but our service was only so-so, and I'm pretty sure our waiter didn't smile once (also believe he is part of the family of owners). It didn't ruin the experience for anyone, but it didn't make us want to go back.

We walked up from the Deer Harbor Marina (it's more than the "four blocks" we were told, but a doable walk for most people). We sat outside on a July evening and had very tasty meals, followed by a delicious desert. The service was very fast and friendly, even taking the time to chat about the restaurant and locale.
