This is an amazing restaurant. Upscale and delicious. Reservations a must. We stayed here for 3 days and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Seeing the bald eagles being fed was a real highlight.

Overly priced. Service was rude and unavailable. We ate at the New Leaf Cafe down the road and so much better in every way.

We stayed at The Inn at Ship Bay for three nights last month. The Inn is right on the coast with a great view of the ocean. Bald eagles and turkey vultures could be seen flying overhead. The Inn has a nice vegetable garden where they get some of their vegetables. The rooms were very comfortable. Breakfast comes with the... More

Nice intimate feel to the place and right on the water. It was our anniversary and I asked around for the best on Orcas. The food was a little foo foo for our tastes and portions were small...more about the presentation than a full dinner. We had the scallops and the hanger steak and I've had both done better at...

Wonderful place to sit down for an elegant farm to table meal. The food is fantastic and the ambiance can't be beat. Get a table on the patio for a view of the sound.

Wonderful menu with a variety of choices sourced locally. Amazing food...cooked to perfection, rich in flavor and perfectly balanced. Our entire family of four said this was their all time favorite dinner...both the meat and fish lovers were more than pleased.

We have eaten here every summer for 3 years now, and it has been top notch every time. The view and setting are lovely, the service excellent and the menu choices never disappoint. There are choice from fish to local pork, to chicken and fresh made pasta. Kids can play out in the field while adults sit. A tour of... More

The food here was beyond a "10". It was absolutely sensational. Very rarely do I like the food at restaurants this much -even the so called "best restaurants". The only thing I would complain about here is the hostess. She was quite overwhelmed and testy. If the food had not been as delicious as it was, we would never go... More

This is my favorite restaurant. The food is delicately prepared, the servers are knowledgeable and most tables have a view of the water. A must!
