We noticed the umbrellas while walking in the harbor and made the hike up the hill! Well worth the walk! Our server Mason was great and the food, local beer, and WA wine were all wonderful. The food had some interesting and delicious twists which is what we enjoy. Everything was fresh and very flavorful. Highly recommend sitting outside to... More

Our group of five went here after a day of kayaking. We enjoyed the outdoor seating with the views of the harbor. Our meal was delicious and the service was very good.

My husband and I visited Friday Harbor House for dinner last Sunday. Not only did they seat us promptly at the time of our reservation at a very nice table, they also allowed us to switch tables to one with a slightly better view (and still in the sunshine) after one of the earlier parties finished their meal. The waitress... More

I made a last minute dinner reservation while traveling on the ferry to Friday Harbor; we arrived on time and had to wait 10-15 minutes for a table to open up. But the wait was well worth it - the food was excellent and the service was spot on! Previously known as the Bluffs, the Friday Harbor House restaurant had... More

A nice busy restaurant with great views. I had a great burger while my wife had a wonderful and filling crab risotto! Without reservations we were seated within 5-10 minutes!

Their menu was small, but everything was wonderful from the cocktails to the food to the view. They even provided blankets when it got chilly after sundown.

We ate here while on vacation in this area for the first time. Modern vibe on the inside but the outside was tables on grass, which is where we sat. Moments after seating, a table with a better view of the harbor opened up and they politely accommodated our request to switch. We shared the mussels in kimchi which were... More

The Friday Harbor House Restaurant is a comfortable, welcoming destination for locals and visitors alike. Islanders can wind down at the end of the day with a group of friends while hotel guests can enjoy a multi-course island dining experience. All will enjoy taking in the panoramic views of the San Juan Channel, ferry landing and marina. We offers an authentic San Juan Island dining experience featuring seasonal specialties and the freshest fare from local waters and farms. Menu items change frequently as you never know what our culinary team will forage from the island's natural bounty or snag from the local farmer's market. We're also excited to announce that our breakfast program has changed from a continental breakfast to an a la carte brunch. Our guests will now enjoy a complimentary made-to-order San Juan Classic breakfast daily including eggs, sausage, bacon, and toast served with juice and local San Juan Roasters coffee. In addition to the San Juan Signature breakfast, you may elect to order from the regular brunch menu and will receive 25% off (excluding alcohol).
