Description: 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 offer 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.

The deck is an amazing place to get a class of wine or a beer. My husband had the best burger in San Juan and my halibut was cooked perfectly. The fireplaces set a perfect atmosphere.

The harbor view was very nice! We had Brussel Sprouts for an appetizer, followed by salmon and halibut for entrees and loved them all! The service was also very good! It was our favorite restaurant on this island!

We sat on the patio over looking the harbor--lovely. But the Wild Salmon dish was a disappointment. Mine was raw in the middle--ordered Medium rare and the it came with turnips and grilled lettuce. I don't know what the chef was thinking but it wasn't great. Maybe you will order better than we did.

We had a lovely birthday dinner on the outdoor patio overlooking the harbor. The servers were friendly and accommodating. The food was delicious. The brussels sprouts and grilled octapus were great starters. Thoroughly enjoyable experience.

recently went on a 2 week vacation to the pacific northwest and was fortunate to have dined at this stunning restaurant. just by chance the night prior to our reservations we happened to meet chef adam. he was not only friendly but a charismatic gentleman w/ a fountain of knowledge about food, the charming island and art. thus his recent notable chef for 2017 pacific nw award from james beard was succinct and to the point. during our long conversations he mentioned some new dishes he was working on for the restaurant and sure enough they arrived per gratis during our appetizer course. where to begin w/the food????? do get the beet salad, pacific nwest octopus, pork belly and the ever playful scallop dish. the beet salad had notes of pernod, fennel, some acid and creamy chevre. the octopus was a winner for it had both a tahinni/hummus and guac sauce w/shisito peppers. the scallops were melt in your mouth w/ rice noodles and an asian dipping sauce. of course the salmon was 5 stars for they had the pink salmon, the creme de la creme of salmon!!!!! we were so stuffed there was no room for dessert..... in fact i've never consumed so much food in one sitting in my entire life!!!!! the caliber of the food, the chef's expertise and the views are what make this restaurant a gem!!!!! kudos and many thanks for over-extending yourself chef adam. my boyfriend and i see a very bright future for you. now if you could open your own restaurant in either nj or nyc we'd be in 7th heaven!!!!!
