With seafood the natural choice, the restaurant has both indoor and outdoor seating with great views. Prices are reasonable and the food is good-not great.

During our stay at the Friday Harbor House we enjoyed a daily continental breakfast in The Bluff. It was so delicious! The view from inside and outside The Bluff is amazing!

Guests who stay with us at Friday Harbor House do have a lovely view for breakfast every morning whether out on the patio in the warm months or from the view inside. So glad you enjoyed it!

Good view of harbor, and great staff. Salads were generous, and the candied nuts were better than any dessert.

We love this restaurant! The food and the view are great! Some of the best clam chowder on the island! My husband loves the salmon tacos.

We had a great lunch on a very windy and stormy day. Great food and excellent service. I recommend it highly. Small and friendly with a beautiful view. It would be a great place on a very sunny, warm day out side on the "Bluff".

Thank you for point out that even on a windy cool day The Bluff is the place to eat! We hope you make it back to try the view outdoors when it's warm!

Description
The Friday Harbor House Restaurant is a comfortable, welcoming destination for locals and visitors alike. Islanders can wind down at the end of the day with a group of friends while hotel guests can enjoy a multi-course island dining experience. All will enjoy taking in the panoramic views of the San Juan Channel, ferry landing and marina. We offers an authentic San Juan Island dining experience featuring seasonal specialties and the freshest fare from local waters and farms. Menu items change frequently as you never know what our culinary team will forage from the island's natural bounty or snag from the local farmer's market. We're also excited to announce that our breakfast program has changed from a continental breakfast to an a la carte brunch. Our guests will now enjoy a complimentary made-to-order San Juan Classic breakfast daily including eggs, sausage, bacon, and toast served with juice and local San Juan Roasters coffee. In addition to the San Juan Signature breakfast, you may elect to order from the regular brunch menu and will receive 25% off (excluding alcohol).
