The food was better than I expected after reading some of the other reviews. The location is great. The beer was overpriced.

Only gave it a 2 as service was the best thing here. Overpriced drinks, extremely greasy. Basically all the food is frozen and dumped into the frier, It is greasy and chewy so you can tell the oil is over used.

So yourself a favor, avoid the tourist trap, the bad foods, and over priced drinks.

Regular food at a very high cost, don't go there if there are some other available places. The view is the only good thing you will find decent

Nicest part was sitting outside on a sunny day. The food was just so-so. If you're looking for a nice vegetable--other than french fries--go elsewhere. This is where you go to have a beer and grub. Strange ordering procedures and delivery procedures. Food arrives from the location where it was cooked, so not everything arrives at the same time. Staff was fine. Food was problematic.

On a sunny day, the location can't be beat. We sat on the top deck and enjoyed the view of the harbor. The service was very friendly. We placed our orders at the counter downstairs. Food was delivered to us up three flights of stairs in a timely manner. Unfortunately, the fish tacos we ordered, at $10 each, left much to be desired. Two small tacos, consisting of 4 or 5 large flakes of fish on each. Not fish filets, or even pieces of filets, but flakes of fish. The tacos had a decent sauce and just plain shredded cabbage. Sweet potato fries were fine. For the money, I think I'd try another place next time I'm in Friday Harbor.
