The location and view are unbeatable and the waitstaff is so friendly and accommodating, but the way you order at the bar and then pay later is so bizarre. Food is average, drinks are good. Good place to go while waiting for the ferry.

Went on a recommendation for the view of the Harbor. That got it a 2 star score. The food was very disappointing. Shrimp and scallops tasted frozen. The one bright spot were the oysters. They were good. Grab a beer, enjoy the view, and if...More

Go to Friday's for the beautiful view and good prices on drinks. I had decent (a bit oily and underseasoned) pan-fried oysters, and my companion had similarly underseasoned fish and chips. The fries were excellent, as was the tartar sauce, all served with a warm...More

You can't beat the harbor view and the food is good. Service is good. Sit up top for the best view. They also allow leashed dogs which is a real bonus for dog owners. A nice relaxing meal.

Killer view but service model is jacked up....order this here, order that there, pay there, bathroom key, etc, etc. We literally ordered beer, burgers and oysters from three different people. Beer is served in plastic cups too which is always a disappointment.

Food was better than average, although I don't really care for a charred veggie burger. The fish and shrimp tacos were enjoyed by our friends. Nice view of the ferry dock.

We arrived on the ferry from Anacortes, toured the town and wanted to grab a lunch before going out whale watching. Beautiful clear day so we ate outside on the upper deck. Kids chose from the kids menu. My husband and I had a cod...More

We came here 3x for beer as they have a good selection and an AMAZING view of the water! We skipped the food as it was all deep fried and we didn't particularly feel like that gut bomb. Gorgeous view - definitely stop by!
