Hungry, and stopped in for a bite to eat. I had the crab cake eggs benedict and my wife had the pretty standard bacon and eggs. My eggs benedict were delicious-cooked to perfection. The smashed & deep fried potatoes are also a knockout - fabulous....More

Love their many specialty drinks and food items. Fine dining in a casual location. We have at least one meal here every time we are on Orcas Island, and have never been disappointed. Professional and helpful wait staff.
