Ordered the big basic burger- best burger I've had in a very long time. Cute place but service was really slow. Had to ask twice for water and again for silverware. But great food!

The Brown never disappoints when it comes to food quality and choice. Food is always good and the portions are large ! The crew is always fun and welcoming. A gem on the Main Street of Anacortes. Don't miss this one!

Have you ever had a one night stand that you seriously regretted afterwards? This was the culinary equivalent... Don't get me wrong, like every one nighter you felt optimistic on the way in. The possibilities were there for a positive experience - good menu options, amazing whiskey selection, and friendly staff that greeted us immediately. Our drink needs were met... More

Midi ou soir It was excellent!! Nachos, burgers, off the menu... We loved this place and came back several times. The beer was great and the meals were fresh and tasty - you can't go wrong!

Starting the day with a large breakfast, we were not hungry until later in the day—about 2:30. The Brown Lantern Ale House has two sections—one for adults only and one for groups with members under 21 years of age. Sitting in the “under 21” section, we discovered there was only one serve, but WOW, was he ever good. He was... More

This is our "go to" pub in the Anacortes area. Their burgers and sandwiches are always good. Our favorite is always their award winning chili. They have a great beer selection. After moving to, Anacortes two years ago we probably eat here once a week!!

I had hot wings that were very yummy.choice of hot or spicy Thai. Crab and corn chowder is very nice with a side of garlic bread that I could not manage to... More

Long lines at other restaurant prompted us to try this place for lunch and we're glad we did! The burgers were almost too large to finish but too good not to. Substituting a salad for the fries was a wise choice--a nice combination of greens with a yummy vinaigrette. There is a wide selection of beers and the nitro beer... More
