Cool Restaurant with unbeatable views of Friday Harbor (especially outside at sunset). Great wait staff & we were easily accomodated without a reservation in late August. The food is nice but it seems like they have shrunk their portions & upped the price. I reccommend...More

Five star view, four star food and 3 star service which is why I rate this restaurant an overall four. Let's start with the view--I do think it is the best in Friday Harbor--not taking away from other restaurants which are on the water and...More

Thanks for the great comments about the restaurant and especially that the kids enjoyed themselves. We welcome all ages to enjoy the view and the cuisine. So glad you live close enough to come back and take another shot at the patio outside.

Loved the bluff for a fine view over Friday harbor. Sat outside even thought they don't have heat lamps. The food was super satisfying and the even view even better. We took the menu in a tapas direction.

Delicious salmon and risotto. Cocktails done just right. Dining on the bluff lawn at dusk with floatplanes landing and departing was perfect for our two boys.

An excellent find. With a great harbor view the patio offers a super place for dining. The menu had the variety for every taste. A suitable wine list, a little short on wine by the glass. Food exquisitely prepared and presented. The service and attention...More

We had lunch here and both my wife and I really enjoyed the food. If you can eat outside on their lawn tables seating you get a great view of the harbor and the ferry dock. Service was great.

Sat outdoors after whale watching. Bald Eagle soared by as we cooled off with a beer. Fish and Chips was delicious. Great waiter, great service.

We ate lunch outside under an umbrella. The food & service were excellent. There were lots of choices & waiter was nice enough to let us just buy and share appetizers. A bit of luxury at moderate prices. Great view too.

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 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).
