Stopped in for a night cap after a long day of crabbing; views of the harbor from the outdoor patio are superb. Oyster variety was top notch, but try the fried calamari. Service was fast and friendly. Beer flights at sunset capped us off.

Right on the harbor, you can sit outside on the deck and overview Friday harbor and the ferry and boats. Servers extremely friendly and informative, and the food was excellent. Best place to go before or after a whale watching tour.

6/6/2017: There is seating and umbrellas on the outdoor deck now. Friday Harbor is a VERY dog-friendly town, so I wouldn't be surprised if they allowed leased docile dogs on their patio.
