We stopped into Lower Tavern for a burger at around 2:00 the Thursday before Memorial Weekend. The place wasn't crowded; a few folks at the bar and one or two tables of other customers. But there was only one person manning both the bar and serving tables, and he was struggling to keep up. Took a long time to get our order in, get our food, and then get the check. However, the food itself was really good pub fare -- I had the Black and Bleu Burger, which came not only with a side of Bleu cheese dressing, but was also loaded with Gorgonzola crumbles -- yum!! My husband had a tavern burger and it too was delish! Great clam chowder! The service issue may have just been one of those things -- someone calling in sick and leaving them short-handed. If you're not in a big hurry and want a good burger, this is the place.

Friday karaoke, and the best, cheap/reasonable priced food you will find in this tourist town. Great people--slow service, but I think that it's just "island time."

I gave this a 5 star because it is a bar, and the food, for a bar, was great! We own a place on Orcas and come here often because of the excellent food (especially burgers) at affordable prices, which on Orcas, is not easy to find. Onion rings good, salad too…and friendly service.

Excellent chardonnay served in a perfectly chilled glass, delicious and reasonably priced pub food with friendly service. The burgers are excellent, especially the bbq beef burger. Staff were friendly and welcoming. I am looking forward to returning!
