We missed the 3:50 ferry from Anacortes to Orcas Island and ended up on the ferry arriving at 8:25 PM. A little internet research while waiting at the ferry terminal indicated that there wouldn't be many places open when we reached Eastsound. The Lower Tavern serves food until 1 AM so we decided to go there.

We were very pleasantly surprised by the quality and friendliness of the service. We decided to get our food to go and take it to our hotel. While waiting, we ordered a single glass of wine to share. The server split the single serving into glasses for each of us (and a healthy pour at that). Our order was filled as quickly as you can cook a couple of burgers. The server packed our carry-out with all necessary condiments and utensils.

15 minutes later, after we checked into our hotel and got to our room, we devoured our food. The Kickin' Chicken Burger was yummy, as was the Lower Tavern Burger with Blue Cheese. It was significantly better than your average bar food (and carry out at that).

The bar seemed to be popular with the young local crowd. The server new several of them by name. There was a pool table and a couple of TVs tuned into football games.

We were pleased with our dinners there. We ended up there because they were open late and could seat us immediately. If you're looking for regular pub food, a cold beer, TV sports and a pool table at reasonable prices give this a try.

Their burgers are great...your basic bar fare. I had the hot wings once and wasn't impressed. Another time I was happily surprised by a pretty good chicken caesar salad. One of the places open "late" on Orcas.

Do not waste your time at the high priced dinner spots on Orcas Island. Grab a burger and a beer at The Lower Tavern and you will not be disappointed. We had the Lower BBQ burger on a fresh hoagie bun with a nice chipotle BBQ dip on the side. This burger was outstanding and made with love. Do not miss this place if you go to Orcas.
