As a preface, I would have gone 3.5 stars, if possible.
This is a relatively new Sushi bar in Friday Harbor. I believe it is owned by the people at Cask & Schooner and is directly above that restaurant. The elevation provides some nice views of the harbor, and the ferries coming and going. For a sushi bar, the name and décor are a little “different”. It has a nautical theme, varied only a little from the Cask & Schooner. The sushi “bar” itself looked normal, and a quick glance at the seafood through the glass indicated that the seafood looked good and fresh. We were there on a January Saturday night . The restaurant was almost full. After being seated we were not approached by anyone for at least ten minutes. Finally the hostess/manager (couldn’t tell) approached us, then our waitress. Our server was very nice, and well intended; but service was off all night. She seemed very new. In spite of that, we really enjoyed ourselves. We had a “house” cocktail, which was creative and tasty, and the food was very good. This is not “Shiro’s" (in Seattle) level of sushi, and our expectations were very low. However, it was good enough that we are definitely going back.
Our favorite dish was the Ika appetizer, spicy and delicious. It was mildly chewy, but in a good way. We ordered Maguro (tuna) sushi, as it is (for us) a barometer of quality/freshness. It was very good. Most everything we had was very good, and we tried a good portion of the menu. It was not inexpensive, but then almost nothing on the Island is.
