Yummy--

Kinda different yet familiar fare. The charcuterie platter offers pickled veggies and cheese curds, the burgers are with a twist... Really yummy. Just cool food for a standard island price. The only negatives are mega tight dining room with tons of tables crammed in and plan on waiting unless you... read more

We had dinner here and it was good but not great (Fish and Chips and Seafood soup). Friendly staff, nice atmosphere but price was a little high for what you are getting.

We flew from Lk Washington to Friday Harbor on Kenmore Air, checked into Bird Rock Hotel, and went to this restaurant for food and view. Were not disappointed in either. Had a great meal, wonderful Bloody Mary (our first drink at new destination) and Bourbon&coke.

Looking at Trip Advisor reviews, and from suggestions from our motel manager, we settled on this restaurant for our Friday Harbor dinner. Hmmm, may have been the best choice, but next time we will probably go elsewhere. We had about a 20 minute wait to even get seated, and then, the servers were so busy that services were a tad...

This was by far the best place we ate at in Friday Harbor. A nice menu for a small town and very friendly staff. I can recommend the Fish and Chips!

Service was spotty. Had numerous people come to table trying to take order but no one to find that our order was awful. Even when they picked up our still full plates no one asked what was wrong or why didn't we eat or do you want a box. Food was extremely greasy and breading had no flavor. No coleslaw... More

This is a very popular pub with very good food. They also own the Sushi bar upstairs, which is excellent. The real challenge for this popular spot seems to be the inconsistent staffing level even during holiday periods. The regular servers are excellent but are really stretched when they don't have enough staff on hand. The lamb burger from local... More

We went there to grab a bite before catching the ferry. This is close to the terminal and the menu outside the door looked promising. I had the schooner burger which is the driest piece of cooked meat ever. Hubby had fish and chips - he said it was ok. He did peel off the coating on every piece of... More

I am very disappointed to see that reviews from 2011 echo the same experience I had in 2015. This means the restaurant has not tried to work on the things it is doing poorly. The food, including fish and chips, salad, and a burger was so horrible this is the first time in my life I've had to return food... More

Food - great! Atmosphere - great! Waitstaff - great! We were on the island for the weekend and went twice. We never do that but the clam chowder, beet salad, lamb burger, Bloody Mary, not to even go into detail about the great beer menu was worth a repeat.
