My wife and I love the Inn at Deer Harbor on Orcas Island. We travel to Orcas a couple times a year and have eaten at their restaurant multiple times. Service is good and the food is super tasty. In 2014 we had our wedding on Orcas which we had catered by the Inn at Deer harbor. Everyone loved the... More

We went here for their Thanksgiving dinner, a special day when they would otherwise be closed. It was a festive occasion with our entire family and we got a cozy corner of the restaurant that felt like our own private dining room. The waitress was delightful, very attentive and congenial, and we felt like we were eating in our own... More

Staying at the inn for a long weekend on a great groupon deal so figured we'd try the restaurant. Fixed menu for turkey day. Carrot soup was very flavorful. Salad was good, tho uninspired. Slice of tomato on mixed greens with some crumbled cheese. Sourdough bread was fresh. Now the entree. Chunks of mixed turkey were a bit dry. Stuffing... More

Steak was excellent as was the seafood pasta. Homemade soup was delicious - overall just a great experience.

Beautiful porch dining with a meadow view and a peek at the water beyond. The food was very good with sides served family style. There was live music (good!) and a sense that you never again needed to rush anywhere. Service wasn't crisp or always accurate, but it was all good in the end. We walked up from the marina.... More

We recently went with the San Juan Island Yacht Club for dinner at the Deer Harbor Inn. There were approximately forty people. The food was outstanding and the service was terrific. I don't believe I've had such a nice meal with so many people. The staff was friendly, courteous and just couldn't do enough to make you happy. Plus, they... More

Deer Harbor Inn is a destination and not just someplace you drive by and say let's stop. Do yourself a favor.mmfind it, stop,many enjoy. Our San Juan Island Yacht Club in Friday Harbor, WA, has enjoyed its Saturday dinner here in October for several years and it's always outstanding. Feeding 40+ people at once isn't hard. Having them leave with... More

We were told that this was the only restaurant in town and one of the best on the Island - boy was that right! It was a lovely warm evening and we decided this would be where we had our anniversary dinner. We were met promptly as we arrived and seated on the deck overlooking the harbor where we could...

This is a lovely spot to eat - the food was great and the service was super! The best part, though, was being greeted by the world's tamest deer in the parking lot, and then seeing bunnies and a mama deer with her fawn by the driveway when we left...it was like being in an enchanted forest! :D

Short walk from the marina to Deer Harbor Inn Restaurant with a sign on Deer Harbor road pointing to a shortcut. Well traveled path less than 50 yards leads to restaurant. Service was a bit slow, but our server did inform us they were short staffed...and she was hustling. Food was better than I expected, everything was fresh. Started off... More
