Really great!

Such delicious food. Had the scallops, the heirloom grains and the duck. All well executed. The environment is lovely too. We sat outside where it seemed less noisy. Warm and welcoming setting. Thanks for a nice meal!

A nice and cozy place to have dinner. The food is very good, we had the steak and the veggie bowl. All main courses come with soup and salad. My personal highlight were the cocktails, really special and very, very good. Though quite pricey worth a try.

An oasis out in the countryside. Very quiet, very quaint and very good. The food is outstanding and the wine selection excellent. Very good wait staff.

I had a gift certificate to use up but I didn't know what to expect. Several Islanders said they'd been to the Duck Soup Inn in the last 4 or 5 years and felt that it wasn't up to the old standards. Others said it was good. Free is free so we went. Now I can't wait to go back... More

We have been going to Duck Soup Inn about once a year for many years. It has always been one of our very favorite restaurants, but its quality level dipped just a bit in our previous couple of visits, following a change of ownership and head chef.

On a Seattle friend's recommendation, we made a last-minute decision to have dinner at Duck Soup while vacationing in Friday Harbor. It's in a lovely, little cottage, covered in lush flowers and thick vines. Local art hangs on the walls and their ingredients are also locally sourced -- something I love. Like the decor, the food was also quirky --... More
