We stopped by to get lunch and a beer after touring the town. They have a nice beer and food menu. I ordered a chicken sandwich and it was excellent as was the local beer.

We came to Friday Harbor for shopping and some work and wanted a simple lunch with a great taste. We found Herb's and it was a perfect fit. The mushroom burger with tater tots just hit the spot and the clam strips tasted good without...More
