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 offers 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. We're also excited to announce that our breakfast program has changed from a continental breakfast to an a la carte brunch. Our guests will now enjoy a complimentary made-to-order San Juan Classic breakfast daily including eggs, sausage, bacon, and toast served with juice and local San Juan Roasters coffee. In addition to the San Juan Signature breakfast, you may elect to order from the regular brunch menu and will receive 25% off (excluding alcohol).

Reviewed November 9, 2013

Halibut cakes, cioppino, wilted spinach and brussel sprout salad. Yum! Local ingredients, well prepared. Menu was rather limited but staff was friendly and view of Friday Harbor. Thumbs up.

We were looking for a nice restaurant for dinner in Friday Harbor and happened upon The Bluff. Nice atmosphere and good food. The wait staff was friendly and helpful. A good surprise!

“Very good food reasonably priced”
Reviewed October 27, 2013 via mobile

Nice restaurant space with harbor views and a really reasonably priced menu for the quality. The braised short ribs, burger and bread service were just right.

“Pleasant Dining With A View”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

We found this to be a pleasant restaurant with harbor views, excellent seafood entrees, good wine, a delicious molten lava cake dessert, and friendly, efficient service. There is nearby parking beside Friday Harbor House, and handicap parking in the back, just past the restaurant entrance.

“Service and Food Just Great”
Reviewed September 25, 2013

Just a small, but great spot, we spent three hours talking, eating and having a great time with friends we meet at Tucker Inn. The waitress was just a gem and made our evening very special for our last night.
Do not miss this gem of a restaurant on the hill over looking the harbour
