Quick lunch while waiting for ferry

Indifferent service but quick enough - waiting for 1:30 ferry. Food was a 3, price 2x mainland for same fare. The next table had fish and chips and it looked a lot better than our burgers. Oh well...

I don't write many bad reviews, but this place was terrible. The food was not good... even the French toast was disappointing. The strawberries were obviously frozen and served mushy in a bowl of melted ice... it was gross. I wish I would have thought to take a picture. There aren't many breakfast options on a Sunday, but anywhere else... More

We had breakfast out on the patio. Both my husband and I loved the food. Large portions. Great service. We will return again tomorrow.

I was on the quest for the best fish and chips on San Juan Island. These were not the best. The tartar sauce was more like mayonnaise. There were LOTS of chips (fries), but they were not too exciting.

We had breakfast memorial weekend. It was very busy but they did a good job of getting us in fast. The food was really good! We had a delicious omelette and blueberry pancakes. The server didn't come back and check on us but luckily we didn't really need anything besides more water. She was nice though just a little unobservant

We were looking for some good local fish and chips -- and a chocolate shake -- and this was the place for it! Fun atmosphere inside too, like a 1950's diner.

We stopped at this place while we were out fishing for Ling Cod. We sat outside since one of our friends had their dog with us. While the wait staff didn't seem to know the menu too well, I ordered the Fried Clam appetizer and the Fish and Chips. Both were prepared very well. I live in Vegas where you... More

Just up the street from the ferry dock and up a flight of stairs is a hangout for the locales, mostly retired men in baseball caps, frequently in small groups, either in booths or around tables. There is a counter as well. While the sign gives an emphasis to fish and chips, note 'world famous' -- as in all countries... More

Stopped here one morning for breakfast - were drawn by the smell of bacon cooking...always a good sign. Friendly atmosphere with traditional 'diner' type breakfast. Enjoyed my hash browns and my husbands french toast looked good, too. Worth the stop.
