We ate lunch here before getting on our ferry to Seattle. We enjoyed eating and watching all of the traffic in the harbor. We easily spent a couple hours here.

I have no idea as to what their lunch hours are. Lunch would be in the Blue Crab restaurant as is breakfast and dinner. As you appear to be local, why not call the restaurant and ask.
