I didn't eat here but sat at the bar and listened to the live music (Friday and Saturday). Great place where locals and tourists mix, oldest place in Friday Harbor.

Great atmosphere. It's the oldest tavern in Friday Harbor. Very friendly people, locals hang out. We had fish(cod) and chips and it was excellent.
