“great view of ferry dock”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

Friendly service with great decks for watching the marina and ferry dock. Food was nothing to rave or rant about--it was just fine for a fast meal.

“You've got to try it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

One of the best burgers on the island and the view is wonderful on the top deck. Make sure you figure out how to order your food because it's more of a seat yourself and order from the counter type of place. I hear the BBQ oysters are great, but I didn't get to try them. I'll be back for sure.

“Fun and relaxing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

We decided to come here to get beer and light food to hang out when we didn't get to the ferry early enough. They had a good selection of beers and then we had fried clams and shrimp and fries. The service was very good.

“Great view. Friendly staff. Average food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

Friday's is just off the ferry dock and has a three-level seating area to observe the activity in the harbor. Food is prepared quickly. Nothing special about it though. Not overly-high priced by island standards. You get used to the prices in Friday Harbor. Fun place to sit, watch and enjoy a quick meal.

“skip it”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

An overpriced 'freezer-based' tourist trap with a view. I usually do in-depth restaurant reviews but it's just not worth the time.

Burp ...
