Were sent here by several Locals referrals. Besides sitting out over Puget sound which was magnificent, the fresh seafood was excellent. Met people with smiles and helpful advice all over the island. We were sent here and glad we were. Seemed almost magical, clear sunny day, with aircraft and watercraft off in the distance, surrounded by water,majestic fir trees and bright blue skies. and the food was excellent and wait persons were friendly, and helpful.

We chose to eat dinner at Downriggers because it was close to our hotel and we wanted to eat somewhere along the waterfront. We shared the Buddha Bowl which was good and the black pepper aioli burger which was excellent. The interior of the restaurant is really attractive, streamlined and modern, while still seeming cozy, and it has floor to ceiling windows that look out over the water so you can watch the sailboats coming and going. The service was warm and friendly. We would definitely come back the next time we're in town and would recommend this spot for high quality food and pretty views.

Service and view were top notch. I had the fish tacos which were quite good. Price was fair. Atmosphere is ok but not as good as the old Downriggers.

This is a recently rebuilt restaurant, back from the ashes of a large fire. The facility is industrial-modern, very clean, well-staffed, and right on the water adjacent to the ferry dock.

We thought it'd be 50% more in costs. Not cheap, but reasonable. We had the fish and chips; the meat was perfect, the breading not too thick, and the portion was reasonable (though we could eat this stuff all day).

After the original Downriggers burned down in a recent year, the town decided to take the opportunity to redesign this part of the Friday Harbor waterfront, and the new Downriggers opened earlier this year. The new one is definitely classier looking, but seems smaller, and is noisier, perhaps due to its polished concrete floors. The hamburgers were great, but the other food and beverages were average.
