I had the greens & blue salad with hazelnuts and red wine vinaigrette- incredible flavor and the best blue cheese I have ever had. I had the pork for my entree - it included polenta and assorted spring vegetables... More

Got a seat at the bar and had the most amazing pork burger I've ever eaten. Before that I opened with an incredible charcuterie plate. It was an absolutely incredible meal.

Often touted at the best on Orcas, IASB was fabulous last night. Gourmet and great service without being pretentious. Lots of local ingredients. 25 for corkage was fair and appreciated.

While staying on Orcas we made a reservation here to celebrate my birthday. It was a November evening and there was just a small number of people dinning. Our server did a great job explaining the Inn's lodging, the beautiful grounds, and the restaurants offerings for the evening. I had a very nice trout special, and my wife had the... More
