My first night in Friday Harbor, I went to this restaurant which was across fhe street from the Inn I was staying at. It was Super Bowl Sunday, before the game had ended, and the restaurant was empty except for 3 staff. It's a beautiful, small restaurant, with stunning views of the harbor and beyond. Because the restaurant was empty... More

Friday Harbor House This place has been here for a while but it feels new in that they have a new chef and have totally re done the menu. It’s adventurous, but very well executed. Even the cocktails are cutting edge and would fit in well at a subtle but popular bar in Capitol Hill. Brunch is new and unique... More

The menu isn't huge, but what they serve is ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. My wife and I shared fresh oysters, and grilled octopus legs. I had grilled mushrooms & veggies. My wife had a burger.

There are very few brunch options in Friday Harbor. I'm thrilled to have discovered that Ferriday Harbor House is now offering brunch, daily. The views are second to none, as the restaurant is perched on top of the bluff overlooking the harbor. The menu offers quite a selection of options that are bound to make your mouth water. I really... More

This place is first class - impeccable service and excellent food. The new morning brunch is absolutely delicious. Wonderful coffee, lots of yummy food choices, and even home made donuts! The view of the bay from the newly decorated dining room is the best in Friday Harbor. This is San Juan Island at it's best. Come early for sunrise breakfast,... More

Every morning we ate there because we stayed at hotel but always enjoyed the meal. Far and above a continental breakfast, always had a great hot egg scramble and the view of the harbor is very nice. Fresh fruit and bakery items as well. Staff always accommodating. I like ice tea every morning and they had that so that always... More

Kind of stumbled into this new/remodeled restaurant when our target restaurant decided to close early! Many creative dishes to choose from with unique and beautiful presentations. I should have taken pictures! Wish I had taken some notes on what we had but I do remember an octopus appetizer that was a visual and culinary work of art! One of several... More

The menu is a bit odd but the food is amazing. The Rib Eye was perfect & the Brussels Sprouts were to die for. The staff is very attentive and very friendly. Can't wait to come back on a nice romantic get away.

When I first moved to the island, I never ate at the Bluff (Friday Harbor House Restaurant). I'd walk in and before I could see the gorgeous view outside, I'd turn to leave as I simply could not get past the bland interior and lackluster menu.

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).
