Didn't have reservations, but they were able to accommodate 7 of us with a short wait. The views are magnificent and the service, food, wine, beer, ambiance were all suburb!!! Highly recommended

Expensive ...while we are not opposed to paying good money for good food and service this place is a joke.! Obviously a tourist trap with an implication of a great menu..! The menu looks great.! Once you sit down you find out what they are out of..( a full third of the menu) then you are told ( if your'e lucky) the substitutions that you'll receive.. if you ask how the blue cheese gratin is prepared you're told they are out and are substituting roasted potatoes.. how's the heirloom tomato salad? Substituting a different tomato ( out of heirlooms).. the risotto was flavorless and watery.. the salmon was raw .( yes salmon should be cooked just right at medium) not here .still cold in the middle raw... after waiting over an hour for an appetizer ( no bread no nothing while waiting) the mussel appetizer was actually the only thing good.. barely....we're out of the filet of beef that's on the menu but we are substituting a rib eye from our downstairs family restaurant instead.. nope it's still 40 dollars for a tough inferior piece of meat..with 4 tiny roasted potatoes and 3 hard as a rock uncooked bock choy..after the appetizer we waited another hour for our entrees....why did we not send it back.??? And wait another hour.?? They said they were really busy... they had 2 tables with a couple at each and a six top....! When we finally got food the incredibly clueless waitperson said it was because they were so busy and they were trying to get the food out to the table of six first... no manager to speak to... the hostess looked to be all of 15 and dressed in the shortest mini skirt I've seen since the 70's.. ( on a very chubby girl) that she kept pulling and stretching at to keep from riding TOO far up..... asked around from the local businesses after eating there and were told that it used to be good and actually quite famous many many years ago when it was owned by a different family... that the new people are just riding on the shirt-tail of its past incarnation and don't care at all about quality food. It's all about making a buck on the unsuspecting tourists.. so so sad .... absolutely we will never go back.!! BEWARE.! Don't be fooled by what the menu looks like..you won't receive anything that your mind's eye has imagined while reading it.! Shame shame on you...

The restaurant has a beautiful glass veranda with views of a glistening ocean and rugged seashores covered with tall Douglas firs and stately madronas. The staff was friendly and quick with their service. The food selection was limited but delicious. The scallop sliders were to die for. All in all a nice experience but felt the prices were a little high compared with others on the island.

Avoid this place. We ordered hamburgers and they came out like charcoal. And no (to address the server's comment), ordering a hamburger medium well or well done does not mean it has to be burned to a crisp (trust me, this wasn't my first hamburger). Management was shocked we didn't like the charcoal burger?! For US$18 for a burger, you can learn how to cook it properly. Also, the server (even before we complained about the food) clearly hated being there and wanted as little to do with the customers as possible. They have a great view from the patio, but they charge waaay too much for this quality of food and service. The food choices on orcas island on a Sunday aren't many, but you can easily do better than this place.

It is rare that a restaurant that has a 5 star setting also has a 5 star menu! The halibut and risotto were awesome, as was the tuna appetizer. And definitely don't miss the Brown Bear bread that is baked across the street!
Oh, and the cosmos were good for the girls too!

Definitely do the outdoor deck tables. The glass railing handles the breeze without interfering with the incredible view.
