Make a reservation to eat at this restaurant. We went on Tuesday evening and it was busy. My husband ordered the bouillabaisse and I ordered the salmon. Both were tasty dishes. I ordered the chocolate mousse for dessert and it was rich and divine!

We had a wonderful dinner outside looking at the bay. We both had specials that included fresh produce and fish available. Everything was excellent…service, food and view.

The best salmon I've ever had, it wasn't just the salmon itself, it was the preparation and side dishes. All vegetables from their onsite garden, ambiance ovelooking the Bay, quality and service outstanding. Fantastic wine list and cocktails... can't wait to go back and try everything on the menu. Fresh, fresh, fresh!

The view from the room was incredible. There were deer in the yard both mornings and evenings. There is a restaurant on site and the food was fantastic! Breakfast is included and it was delightful! The only downside was the room itself. The rooms are decent sized, but there is a lot of furniture in the room so it feels... More

Our friends on Orcas love this place, so we were happy to take them here for dinner. $325 for dinner for 4 (wine, no cocktails, 2 appetizers, 4 entrees, 3 desserts) seemed high -- I had to remind myself that island prices are high…) My chicken turned out to be a very small slice of a boneless, skinless chicken breast...

This restaurant gets mixed reviews from both locals and visitors. Some people rave about the excellent quality of local ingredients, presentation, service; others say it's over-the-top, too expensive, too snooty. I would say it's somewhere in between. The four of us (two couples) thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. Although we had a reservation, we decided to wait for an outdoor/patio table... More

This was the best meal I had during a three night stay on Orcas Island. Everything was sourced locally, therefore fresh and delicious. For a starter I had a charcuterie plate which included prosciutto that came from a pig raised right there (sorry for the poor guy, but it was fabulous) paired with melon, then a duck liver pate, which...

I had the scallops and they were perfection! Tasted the crab salad and delicious as well. Our whole party loved our meals. Would highly recommend.

We were here in June and went to dinner with our 2 kids (ages 8 and 6). We had a great meal. The food was fantastic, the wine list was great, they didn't rush us and the price was reasonable. Would definitely go back when I'm back in Orcas.

Had dinner there in August, 2014. Waited 45 minutes for our entree to arrive (the waitress finally came by to apologize, saying that since we hadn't ordered a starter course, that somehow backs things up?!). I had the ravioli that was tasty and the vegetables were very fresh, but it wasn't a "Wow!" My husband had the duck confit, which... More
