Long a favorite restaurant of ours, we enjoyed another dinner on the deck of the historic building offering a peaceful view of the orchard, harbor, and the snow-covered Olympics. Live piano music by Jim is a new good addition. The Resident Cat greeted us as we sipped a Washington Riesling. We ordered the fresh Alaskan sockeye salmon dinner. Pea soup, French bread, and a local green salad was served. Our fish was moist, cooked the way we like it, and came with corn on the cob and potatoes. We got carried away and shared a Hot Fudge Sundae for dessert. Scrumptious. A perfect summer dinner island style!

The deer harbor inn, like many on the island, does a very good job of sourcing local ingredients and providing fresh cuisine. The food is good and reasonably priced and the portions are ample.

What really sets this place apart is not the food, but the view. It is simply stunning and worth a meal alone if you find yourself on Orcas.

My husband and I went here to celebrate our 9th wedding anniversary. We stayed in one of the cabins, which was nice. It included its own cooktop, fridge, and microwave along with dishes and pots. We enjoyed the full bath and private hot tub as well. The deck on the front was nice as well as having a bbq where we cooked steaks and such. A great jumping off point for hiking and exploring on the island. We had a groupon so we got two nights for the price of one and would stay here again if we had another one.

We are staying down the road and this was an easy and close choice for us to make after a long journey to finally get to Orcas Island from Southern California!!! First off, we loved the setting, then the history of the family, and knowing that dinner's have been served here since 1924!!!What a treat to have soup and salad included with our meal. The soup, served in a small tureen, was yummy...white bean served with warm bread. The salad was delicious, served with slivered almonds and grated cheese, in a light dressing. This too was served family style. My husband had the seafood pasta that was full of tiny shrimp, two large shrimp, scallops and salmon. The sauce complimented the fish and he said it was amazing!!! I had the chicken, and artichoke fettuccine that was also very good. We enjoyed the blackberry cobbler with ice cream that was quite good as well. Here for five more days and looking forward to returning this week!!!

The restaurant has a really nice setting overlooking Deer Harbor. The menu is not extensive but we ended up with a lot of tasty food. Staff were very friendly. I found it a little expensive relative to other restaurants we have visited
