We came here in the evening when there was a live band playing. The band was really good and played good dance music. We danced all night and enjoyed the cocktails from the bar. The bartenders could have bee a bit more friendly but oh well.

Went in for lunch and didn't realize it would take 1 hr and 20 minutes to get burgers and fries after ordering. Food was OK, but not worth the wait.

Few eating establishments in Friday Harbor are open beyond 9 PM. Herb's is. They have good bar-type food: burgers and wings. The wings are excellent and the beer selection is good. We ate there twice during our one-week stay and were happy both times.

We went to watch the Seahawks and Cowboys preseason game. There several large tvs on 2 different walls to watch the game. Our server was quick to get our order and the food came out fast. We ordered a mushroom burger and a cowboy burger, one with tater tots and one with sweet potato fries. Everything was delicious. It did... More

We stopped in here after our whale tour to grab a bite to eat. It was pretty busy, but the bartender was attentive and kind. Food is very tasty and the prices are decent. I recommend the burgers!

Slow food service. 45 minutes + to get food order and the place wasn't that busy. I should have known better when I saw a "Help Wanted" sign on the door advertising for a cook. Do yourself a favor and avoid this place.

My mom wanted me to write this review to say that this place has the best Cobb salad she's ever had. It was really fantastic, great portion size and just delicious. Otherwise it's your basic local bar, with not much atmosphere, the other food was decent, service was pretty indifferent but it was 10pm on a Sunday night so probably... More

By default this is the best choice for dining and drinks late at night. Both food and drink are just fine for pub fare. It's a bar with pub food. Fun place to drink.

Had a blast at Herb's on karaoke night! What a great welcoming crowd!! While we didn't have the guts to sing, we had a great time watching everyone let loose. Fun place to relax!
