We stopped in her after the ferry crossing. Yes you have to order at the bar but everyone super friendly. When they brought out the food it was hot and so good. Being from the Midwest I do not get Ali tuna often so I...More

Good drinks, food and company! Everyone was super friendly and could answer any question you had regarding the island. Its too bad they are only opened seasonally.

I knew before I went to San Juan Island that I would be paying premium prices, but I wasn't prepared for this. My wife and I wanted some fish and chips and this looked like a good place. We entered and as we stood there,...More
