We were spending our anniversary weekend in Friday Harbor and selected this restaurant based on Trip Advisor reviews. Every item we were served was perfect. The crab bisque was buttery but not heavy. The house salad was crisp, fresh and had lots of interesting ingredients....More

This seams to be the place to celebrate on the island with a great view and a good meal. We had salmon and halibut - the halibut was perfect, the salmon was very good as well. It is definitely on the pricier side.

We celebrated our wedding anniversary with an excellent meal. The halibut was well prepared and the black bean ravioli with shrimp was very good. Highly recommend this place, especially if you are celebrating a special occasion. Also, the servers did a great job!
