There Once was a Cabin in the Woods
Now in its fourth decade, Duck Soup Inn continues to amaze and delight with its uniquely Northwest cuisine. Nearly all ingredients are sourced or foraged directly from San Juan Island and masterfully prepared in a rustic cabin set back in the woods. Presentation is central, and wait-staff, superb. Recently added was an outdoor lounge area complete with plenty of cushioned seating, gas fire pit and heat lamps to brave the island’s windy evenings.
The cocktails crafted here are a step above, highlighting experimental and unique ingredients such as candied Madrona bark. Mains come complete with house-made sourdough bread, soup and organic salad. Each course is perfectly timed for a truly gourmet dining experience. Be sure to try the Flash Fried Brussels Sprouts, a highly recommended treat, and the Heirloom Grains Bowl with crispy tofu or savory chicken meatballs and seasonal veggies. Oh, and the Salmon. It’s perfection.
