Nice restaurant with a very nice ambiance but it is not an inexpensive place to go. The most inexpensive thing on the menu was soup, salad and bread for $18.00. The steak Diane was $38.00. We had a dessert for $9.00. The food was well prepared but expect to pay plenty for appetizer, wine and a meal. Most entrees were... More

Hard to beat the setting, especially if you're a tourist from far away as we were. Just a few minutes North of Friday Harbor and down a short gravel road? Yes a gravel road leads up to the cabin in the woods. Inside is a lodge-like feel where we enjoyed an excellent dining experience. I had the steak diane, which... More

This is a "must" stop for us every time we visit San Juan Island. Time after time this restaurant has not disappointed us and once again the experience was wonderful. Great food and great service. Love "The Duck."

Fabulous and creative while not being pretentious. There was seven of us and we all thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience. Great food, excellent service and a gorgeous outdoor setting that was enchanting on the beautiful night we were there. If you are looking for a special night out and you are able to drive a short distance out of the... More

Out in the middle of nowhere stands this funky, beautiful restaurant with delicious food and warm ambiance. We had the Brussels Sprouts appetizer which was outstanding. The salmon and duck were amazing. All in all a memorable experience .

We saved the Duck Soup Inn as our special treat and were not disappointed. Salads, soup and entrees were freshly made with the freshest ingredients. Recommend reservations. Also recommend bringing someone 'special' here.

This small restaurant was really delightful. It's away from the crowds in the middle of a very secluded area. Lots of locals...the restaurant is owned by a young couple and it's only open seasonally. The menu is not very big but really tasty and delicious, I had a carrot soup, an interesting salad and the salmon.....I liked the simplicity of... More

We have visited SJ Island every year for 15 years and this restaurant is invariably part of our routine. It has consistently been excellent every year, with eclectic, creative and tasty entrees from the kitchen and warm, attentive, well-paced (not too fast - not too slow) service. With a pleasing & warm ambiance, while not the most conveniently located, it... More

We enjoyed the food, wine and atmosphere. The staff was friendly and the service very good. What I enjoyed most was the pace of service, we were not rushed at all and given plenty of time between courses, I hate being rushed, I like to take my time and enjoy my food and company.. Great dining experience if you are... More

Our meal was very good; We started with the brussels sprouts appetizer which was one of the best things I've ever tasted! Crispy and served with a lemon aioli sauce. I had the chicken breast with parsnip waffle which was delicious! My husband had the salmon but it was undercooked and cold in the middle. The staff was very nice... More
