Popular Orcas Island restaurant with consistently wonderful food. Pleasant farmhouse with good wait staff. In summer can enjoy outside patio. Bar menu is a bit less expensive, but again good

A reservation is definitely encouraged. The restaurant isn't very big. It is only open for dinner. The chef puts together a wonderful selection; fresh and locally sourced as much as possible. The food is always great, and we usually come back the next evening too. The deserts are worth every calorie so don't pass them up! When the chef does... More

My husband and I celebrated our mutual birthdays at this lovely Inn. We were seated in the main dining area since the outside dining area was filled. Had we made our reservations earlier in the week, we probably would have been able to secure that preferred seating. Pricing was a bit high, but comparable to like places on the East... More

This place is so peaceful and all employees were extremely helpful and welcoming. We had a handicapped room which was large, bathroom was marvelous, and the entire atmosphere is one of peace and restfulness. The old road still visible out front harks back to the oroginal settlers more than 100 yeas ago. Deer roam the yard, one doe has a... More

A trip to Orcas Island would be totally worth it just to have dinner at the Inn at Ship Bay. I doubt there is a better dining experience anywhere north of the California border! The restaurant is quaintly set in an old farm house that has been up-dated to accommodate a larger number of guests, many of whom stay at... More

We had a truly wonderful meal at the Inn at Ship Bay. I had chicken and my wife had seafood. Both were outstanding. The service was quite good. The ambiance is casual but classy. The wine selection was very good. I recommend highly

They use lots of fruits and vegetables from their own garden, but having local and fresh ingredients doesn't make you a great restaurant. You have to know how to use those great ingredients, and these folks do. My shaved vegetable salad was as good as salad gets, and my pork dish was also topped by wonderful local fruits and vegetables.... More

Imagine my surprise when calling 24 hours ahead for reservation on a Monday to find only an 8pm slot. When we arrived, the waiting area was packed with a combination of guests at the Inn, locals, and tourists (like us). Seating was within a few minutes of 8pm, but then we slipped into some kind of invisibility hole. Tables all... More

The grounds of this location are incredible. Surrounded by the gardens and orchards that supply the restaurant on one side and Eastsound in the other. This place is a real treat.
