Was difficult to get a reservation, but turned out to be our best meal on Orcas. Both the fish and steak were great. The fruit pie desert could not have been better.

There are so many good restaurants in Eastsound. We had a mediocre, very overpriced, over-garlicked meal there last week. The hostess was pleasant. The server was ill-trained as to the proper pace of the meal, and needed to learn NOT to stack the dirty dishes...More
