Spectacular sunset and superbly prepared meal. Vegetarians catered to, variety of items, upscale but casual and very popular with locals too, this place is a must try on Lopez!

Excellent food, good service, incredible view across the harbor to the sunset. Emphasizes sea food. Scallops were great, as were crab cakes. The prices are a bit high, but you expect that with a good restaurant in a place like Lopez.

Expectations were modest given the location on Lopez Island. Service and ambience were however good. Food was fresh and the scallops probably the best I've ever had. Dessert was also outstanding.

Small restaurant overlooking the bay at Lopez Village on Lopez Island. The menu is pricey - but oh worth the price!. The staff was cordial, friendly, and helpful. We had a great view of the sunset this night.

We had a party of six for dinner here on a Monday evening. We sat outside on the deck and enjoyed the amazing water views: sailboats, cruisers, and a beautiful sunset. The food was great and reasonably priced. Bring your sunglasses!

We stayed at a B&B on Lopez Island for a few days this summer. It was our first visit to the island. We live in San Francisco, so we have a pretty good sense of what a really exceptional restaurant is like. The Bay Café...More
