My experience at this restaurant was not good. We were seated promptly, but after that, not much went well, especially the food. Maybe we just ordered the wrong dishes, but I found the food lacking flavor. The artichoke dip appetizer was about 95% onion, 3%...More

Cute bar/ restaurant on the water in Friday harbor. I chose to have breakfast here the morning of my birthday. They made the eggs the way I like poached hard and crab was fabulous. Potatoes were just average but still crunchy and cooked through. I...More

We only had the fried oysters and margaritas but both were great! The margaritas were waaaaaaay better then the ones at the Crab house nextdoor.

Perfectly cooked fish testified to the chef's skill and the nice view over the ferry docks and harbor activity helped take the curse off a chilly, rainy afternoon. We found the service to be excellent, informal but attentive without any sense of hovering.

If you've only got a few days in Friday Harbor and are looking for a special seafood meal I would recommend trying elsewhere - nothing objectionable about the food at Blue Water but also not memorable.

We ordered up clam chowder, sandwiches, and salads around 1:15p on Saturday for our lunch. The food came in spurts. First, two chowders, then 20 minutes later, the third chowder our friend had ordered. After we ate our chowder, we waited 30 minutes before we...More
