Not much else was open mid-week, so when we found this place we weren't sure what to expect. The waiter/bartender was great and so were the lower tavern burgers. Highly recommend!

We went as a group on Friday night during Kareoke. It was busy and people were singing and we had a great time. Service was good and I would go here again anytime I'm on Orcas Island.

We were looking for dining after 8PM, but the sidewalks and most restaurants were closed. So, we happened upon the Lower Tavern. My goodness, great food! What a fortunate find.

We split a burger and boneless wings and had a few drinks to wash down the dust from our hike. Burger was juicy and fries were cooked to crispy perfection. Comfortable environment,... More

Warm and friendly and the service was excellent. A breath of fresh air compared to a couple of other places we visited. We had the Lower Tavern burger and it was excellent. The fries were very good as were the onion rings.

The food here is very good and very well priced. I had the french dip sandwich and it was delicious. The fries are nice and crispy, the beer selection is good and service is unpretentious.
