We came here to celebrate a friend's birthday. The place was very busy and loud, as is,expected on a Friday evening. However, from the 'greeter' at the door, to the servers that careened through the place, the service can only be described as "gruff" at best. Ordering took a very long time after being seated, even for drinks. Food took... More

Will go back here. A crowded place, waiter was running to get orders in and the food on the table. Not too much of a wait, the place was packed. Shared a reuben with another, plenty of food for me. One person had the pulled-pork sliders, great value. Good enough selection of beers.

My hubs and I went with two of his sisters and his brother and the place was loud and busy but we were able to get a table on a Saturday night, so were thankful. We all ordered fish and chips but one person who ordered a burger. All were great. When you go to a place on the water,... More

On the recommendation of our good friends Brad and Dale, my lovely wife and I visited the Brown Lantern on Commercial in old town Anacortes. As far as we knew, the pull was great hamburgers. We arrived a little after five PM and nabbed the last of 8 tables in the dining room. Sandra was determined to experience fine dining... More

My wife and I had dinner here twice in the past week. The second time we had couples join us. When you come in it may seem like a place that is sports and drinks oriented. While the sports and drinks are just great the food and service are fantastic. We have had burgers, fish tacos, and Thai salad and... More

We went out for dinner after going to Escape Anacortes. Despite being a full house, we had great service and great food. Someone (owner?) even came outside as we were leaving to let us know that they would be having live music in an hour if we were still around. Honestly I regret that it's the first time we've been...
