“I dig dive taverns...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2012

...and Herb's is definately there!
Haven't been there in over 20 years, but it's still the same, just different help.
Nice that some things never change....right?

“Great nostalgia”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2012

It's the oldest bar in Friday Harbor so I had to visit. Drink was at a great price and "stout". Bar is not a tourist spot, more for locals I think which is most probably why I didn't get great attention. Why should I? It's for the locals. If you are a tourist, it's great to stop in for a drink or two, just to say you've visited the oldest bar. Shouldn't miss it...great little spot for a drink before dinner. They will probably hate me for giving them a good review. I think this spot pretty wants to remain "local". Yet I liked it.

“Great Cheeseburger”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2012

A very "tavern" atmosphere including a lot of guys hitting on you. If you are single female and love hamburgers, go to Herb's!!!

“Fun time bar”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2012

Pool tables, pull tabs, music and good food. We wanted just some simple sandwiches which weren't on the menu and all we had to do was ask - no problem! The staff there is a fun group of young people, most of whom have been there for many years.

“Great Black Bean Burger!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2011

My husband and I spend time on our boat in the San Juans every summer and we ALWAYS make a stop at Herbs in Friday Harbor. Herbs has an amazing Black Bean burger, great drinks and a really fun staff. Herbs also has live music on the weekends so it is always a good time!
