Drinks ok, food meh. Seems like a place every tourist needs to see.... I did. With all the amazing places on San Juan Island, this would not be my choice for spending my time and money. That said, drinking with friends and having that view could have some appeal.

Yes that's how it pronounced in Northern BC. Can't beat the view and the "fiss" is breaded nicely and the caper tartar sauce is tasty and not heavy

Enjoy a nice lunch while overlooking Friday Harbor. The food is pretty good as is the service. They have a nice selection of fresh fish, salads and soups.

Fun place right on the harbor with excellent fresh sea food at a reasonable price. It is not fancy, but the food was fresh and very good.

During our week's vacation on Orcas Island, we took the ferry to San Juan Island for a day trip. We had lunch at Friday's Crabhouse before returning to Orcas. This is a good place for a quick bite and view of the harbor. It was very crowded when we were there, but we were able to secure a table after... More

Awesome place to sit, relax, and watch the water. Go all the way up to the top bar and sit at the rail towards the water. No table service. Order your food at the first floor bar and they will bring it to you. Lots of fried food, if that's what you are after. Chowder very good. Crab good. Beer... More
