Our host from the Outlook Inn recommended the Lower Tavern and the Madrona Bar and Brill as we wanted to watch a certain college football game. After an incredibly rude greeting from the Lower Tavern, we quickly moved on to the Madrona. This is a rather quaint place with a nice view of the water. We sat at the bar because the place was pretty close to being packed. Our new best friend, Steve, was very gracious and filled us in on what was going on Orcas Island. We had fish and chips that were just outstanding. In fact, the experience was so good that we came back the next evening to enjoy a steak that was just terrific!

Nice setting, food was great, prices reasonable, staff very friendly and helpful. We had dinner without reservations on a Saturday night, it was busy but it didn't seem to be a problem getting served. Beautiful setting, right on the water.

We arrived and were seated by the window overlooking the East Sound. I highly recommend the fish tacos. They were excellent. I also really enjoyed the crab bisque.

We've had hamburgers (very good), seafood (very good), and clam chowder (not so good for our tastes--it was a very thick floury tasting broth). The views are great and so is the service!

We wanted some lunch on a Saturday afternoon and this place had a good selection on the menu. We got a table for two facing the water. I had the fish and chips which were excellent and my companion had the BBQ which was pretty good as well. The prices were about on par with the rest of the island. The wait staff was friendly and helpful when asked for suggestions between a few items on the menu.
