The Friday Harbor House Restaurant is a comfortable, welcoming destination for locals and visitors alike.

All will enjoy taking in the panoramic views of the San Juan Channel, ferry landing and marina.

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.
