I had brunch here with my wife and it was awesome. The atmosphere was lovely and the service staff friendly. It's also right in the heart of the main square. A great spot to stop before or after the ferry ride.

We didn't know anything about this place.
Everything we ate was so good and fresh.
Beer, clam chowder, lamb burger w/ an amazing salad and we returned later for their toffee sticky dessert featuring locally made vanilla ice cream.
Great views of the harbor. Casual goodness and service.
Highly recommend.

Situated right on the harbor, this is an easy place to drop in for a pint and bit to eat if you've taken the ferry over to Friday Harbor. We stopped in late in the afternoon and had a beer along with sharing the ploughman's platter. The beer choices were good with a few local names we hadn't heard of on tap. The platter was tasty, if a little on the small side, but good enough for a lite bite shared by 2 of us. Service was friendly and attentive.

I really really wanted to like this place. I've eaten there 4 times now and I have to say that when a restaurant could be fantastic, the times that it isn't are incredibly disappointing. The menu is varied and innovative, but the service can destroy what would otherwise have been a great meal.

The last visit our waitress was borderline rude and dismissive and we waited 30 minutes for our meal. Even then it was clear that the food had sat around - although our fish was hot, the fries were limp and cold, the steak was over done, and risotto muddy.

This is one of the most popular restaurants in town, but even when it is almost empty, the service is very hit or miss, as is the food. For 3 people, we spent about $130 including drinks. In Seattle that would have been enough for a memorable meal. Here it was barely average and thus profoundly disappointing. If they cared...this could be a great place. But you come away with the feeling that they don't.

Looking at this place from the outside, you would be fooled. The food here is exceptional. Four of us went for lunch on a crowded day while waiting for the ferry. We enjoyed the large beer selection and had an excellent calamari salad that was fabulous- a chicken sandwich that was fabulous. We had heard that the lamb burger was great, so ordered that, but they were out. The service was wonderful.
