We had a little time before our whale watching adventure and spent it at Friday's Crabhouse. The food was really good and the view overlooking the harbor was awesome. Plan some relaxing time here and you won't be disappointed

We stopped in after kayaking for some hearty chowder, delicious Dungeness crab and satisfying beer. We ate at the outdoor bar and enjoyed watching the ferry come in. A fun late afternoon!

Fun place right on the harbor with excellent fresh sea food at a reasonable price. It is not fancy, but the food was fresh and very good.
