During our week stay in Friday Harbor we found ourselves going back here each night. The bartenders were friendly and awesome! We had great fun meeting and playing pool with some of the locals and vistors, ordered hamburgers and they were very good... Just a fun atmosphere with good food.

The sign above the bar says Friendliest Place in Town.. Not last Saturday night. The bar tender certainly wasn't friendly. My husband asked him if he had a particular beer. The answer.. "No". He wasn't given an alternative and had to get up and look for himself what they had available.

Maybe it was that the bartender had been reprimanded in front of customers for not having all the chairs down on the floor, instead of on the tables. Or maybe he just figured we were tourists and didn't care. Whatever it was, maybe he should look at the sign above the bar occasionally.

As for the food it wasn't edible so we left without finishing.

This was the last place selling food late on an August Monday night after a sunset kayak trip. The only thing they had left was chicken strips and fries. It was frozen bar food kindly thrown into a fryer way after the last person should have ordered food, and I was super-thankful to have found something because kayaking makes you hungry. I had some great beer and an interesting cider, as well.

Seemed like more of a local hangout than a touristy spot. Pool tables and a jukebox to keep you occupied. Hats off to the woman who was running the place. I think she was the only one working, and she was kicking some major @55!

Fun local scene! Good music, good selection of beer, wine and spirits. Worthwhile visiting! A very good example of an old time Tavern!

Great food! I was tired of all the pricey Seattle food and this place on San Juan island hit the spot. Good food, good beer, good prices. What more does a guy need?
