I was there for a pre-function before dinner reservations, the selection is good, the service is fine, and if you want bar food, I would recommend it.

I wished we would have spent our time doing something else. We stopped for another drink after dinner and it was not a pleasant experience. It took forever to get drinks and the bartender was dressed in an old wife beater and didn't appear clean. I couldn't even imagine ordering food here. Then the band, that was the most awful... More

This is a bar right out of the Alaskan sitcom "Men in Trees." Interesting people, rugged interior. GREAT clam chowder.

My family likes to get take-out a few times a month, and we've become pretty particular about our cheeseburgers. And we all agree, Herb's makes a pretty good burger! They're friendly, the food is cooked the way we like, and the price is not bad. Also, they have a card they'll stamp where you get a free meal after you... More

When I have a bad experience at a restaurant I generally like to give them another chance. I'm glad I did it this time. I met the owners, CJ and Jasmine, had fun service from Heather and an amazing burger. I've gone back since then and the Cobb salad and Fish and chips are generously portioned and yummy. Herb's? Just... More

We were only on San Juan Island for 2 nights and we went here both nights. Just a fun little bar/tavern. They have a new owner that is really making this place something special. Great food and beer selection. We played pool and pull tabs-(sounds silly but we don't have Pull Tabs in Nevada or California.) We had so much... More

Herbs is your typical old tavern, been around for years. I think they advertise as being the oldest one in town. My girlfriend was sceptical before we went in due to a 'Help Wanted' sign on the door which means to her poor service. We ventured in anyway because we were hungry and looking for some good bar food. We... More

Stopped by for a quick lunch and beer mid afternoon Monday. Bartender was our best friend as soon as we stepped in the door. Good cold beer on tap plus nachos and chicken fingers and we were off to a great start right off the Boat.
