Description: The Friday Harbor House Restaurant is a comfortable, welcoming destination for locals and visitors alike. Islanders can wind down at the end of the day with a group of friends while hotel guests can enjoy a multi-course island dining experience. All will enjoy taking in the panoramic views of the San Juan Channel, ferry landing and marina. We offer an authentic San Juan Island dining experience featuring seasonal specialties and the freshest fare from local waters and farms. Menu items change frequently as you never know what our culinary team will forage from the island's natural bounty or snag from the local farmer's market.

The food was very well prepared by a chef who is passionate about his work. He visited our table before we ordered and excitedly and proudly answered all of our questions about menu selections. The sturgeon was the best I've ever had. All 4 entrees were spectacular. A small dining room with a beautiful view. Excellent, attentive service. Definitely go if you are in Friday Harbor.

My friend and I each ordered the salmon, which was beautifully presented on veggies and a very thin tasty crust...All was so good, that we asked to tell the chef...very impressed with chef Kyle!

The food is delicious, from my calamari appetizer to the Wagyu steak and fries, to the cheese plate and crab cakes the table next to me raved about. An always smiling staff, very friendly and attentive hostess and waitress ensure great service. The Chef often comes to talk to customers about his dishes and the atmosphere is professional but warm- the staff are playful but respectful and everyone, including the non-restaurant employees are very helpful and knowledgable about the island. Very impressed.

Fabulous views of Friday harbor and the ferries and a great menu but the food didn't live up to our expectations. Overbreaded calamari, dry flat bread appetizer, and a ice cream dessert that could have come from Baskins Robbins.
