We have been to Inn at Ship Bay multiple times over the years. This was our first visit when we were able to enjoy their new tasting menu. Put your trust in Chef Geddes' hands and let him do his culinary magic. You won’t be...More

Dinner tonight at The Inn at Ship Bay, window-side, was a spur-of-the-moment inspiration that turned out to be a spectacular treat. Mid-May sunny weather, lovely view of the garden framed by a white wisteria-lined trellis, and with split-log fence just beyond this at cliff's edge...More

We had the chef's tasting menu and it was amazing. Six small, exquisite dishes, all of which were delicious and were impeccably presented. The servers were attentive and nice. This is a world class restaurant in an unpretentious setting.

Fun and surprising blends. To miss this would be a crime! Wonderful quaint but beautiful Candle lit setting,...More

My wife and I had dinner here with another couple. They were very good, but perhaps a bit more adventurous than I care for. The others liked it, especially the scallops, so I'd recommend it, but if you're more meat and potatoes, probably wouldn't be...More

We recently spent a week on Orcas Island. We dined at The Inn and Ship Bay twice during our stay because it was, in a word, outstanding. The food and service was impeccable. Depending on the weather, you can dine out doors in a most...More
