Outdoor & Harbor View Dining
The Best Views of the West
No time on the island is complete without drinks or a meal overlooking the majestic Puget Sound and no place fits the bill better than The Restaurant at Friday Harbor House. Perched high atop an embankment, it boasts panoramic views of the San Juan Channel, ferry landing and Friday Harbor Marina, away from the hustle and bustle of it all. Serving lunch and dinner daily with happy hour from 2-4 pm, as well as seasonal events and specials, there’s never a bad time to stop in and stay awhile.
On the menu, guests will find high quality, organic and sustainable fare sourced from local farms and waters for an authentic San Juan Island dining experience. To accompany your meal, or as a refreshing standalone, this restaurant offers a fantastic variety of beer, cocktails and wines-by-the-glass. Comfortable outdoor seating is available during the warmer summer months and the modern, sleek interior with floor to ceiling windows allows for great views without the harsh elements all year around.
