A little pricey, but well worth it. Excellent food was only surpassed by the friendly and efficient service.

We stayed at the Inn and had a great breakfast there every morning. Great fresh fruit was memorable. All dishes were well prepared and tasty.

Hubby and I had the privilege of enjoying dinner with another couple here just last night. We both had the lamb steaks which were good, but not as delicious as I remembered it to be in Spring, but still decent. The house wine was lovely. The flourless chocolate cake was tasty but heavy. Thank you for the good service! The... More

The one aspect, right away, that stood out was our very slow service. The hostess greeted us warmly and sat us immediately. Our server, Marina, took 10min to come to our table. The folks next to us had been there awhile already which was obvious from their menus lying in wait to order(drinks too) and them looking around) She came,... More

You won't be disappointed. We went for seafood on a recommendation from our cabin proprietor, but they actually have a nice mixture of plates offered on the menu. I ended up getting the lamb with truffle fries and mixed greens salad, which was all delish. My husband got the scallops... Best either of us have ever had. They serve their... More

Make a reservation during busy season, worth it! Good service and nice view of the water. You will enjoy this trendy menu on Orcas Island.

Ate here on our first night on the island. I was anxious to try the seafood as it had received excellent reviews. We made reservations and was seated close to the outside patio with great view of Main Street and the water. Our server was courteous but not able to answer any of our questions regarding the food. The kitchen... More

We went to the New Leaf based on the recommendation of our B+B hosts and it was amazing. We had the soup of the day and the crab cakes. We both had the Halibut special which was superb. We had the berry crumble for dessert and you could tell it was made on site with a just picked berry flavor.... More
