Beer battered onion rings were the bomb! We hit this joint just after getting off the ferry at lunch time. The service was quick and friendly. The tab ran about what your local hamburger joint would run. Didn't have a beer but they had a good variety on tap. Noticed several were NW brews. The grilled sandwich hit the spot after one and a half hours waiting for our destination.

Casual, tasty food, ok prices, busy...one large, chatty space. Liked the food and prices, the environs were nothing special but had no expectations in that regard, anyway.

Its a Tavern... so don't go expecting a romantic fancy dinner. But if you want good food at a fair price...this is your place. Plus they're open when many others are not. I don't live on the island and so I don't eat here but a few times a year, but I have always enjoyed a great meal here. Most menu items have nice homestyle touch---like the coleslaw which is nicely dressed and with a few extra ingredients like bell peppers to make it better than most. Burgers are big and loaded with nice fresh veggies and good-quality condiments. The halibut is very well prepared and, although deep-fried, keeps its mild flavor and not over cooked. Their french fries are good but could be better---good when HOT, but quickly fall off the flavor/texture wagon as they cool. Prices are very reasonable, especially considering that eateries on the island are usually a little pricey or servings small for the price.

Headed to the lower to try the burgers as a friend had been raving about them. I was not disappointed the burger and fries was superb. It just so happened to be karaoke night and some very talent folks where in the house singing all in all a great night.

We have been eating there for 30 years. It is a great lunch place and this time they had an excellent cider on tap. I have food allergies and they always work with me.
