Went in for dinner, and if the weather had been bad I could have spent the entire weekend in the bar. Lisa was our server, excellent, just the right amount of attention. Excellent game day menu for the Seahawks and plenty of 12's in attendance. There is not a bad seat in the place and since the sun was out,... More

So the food was absolutely delicious. All of my travel companions agree. Limited gluten free options. The waiter was fun, playful, and entertaining...however, he didn't understand what gluten was. Great views of the water.

If they have it, be sure to try the Halibut with macadamia nuts. Pricey, but delish! The salmon and the fish tacos are also excellent. We sat and watched the Olympics on the tvs in the bar, ate wonderful food, drank good beer and watched the sunset over the water. (And several of the hundreds of rabbits on the island... More

Weekend bands, great food, happy hour, outside dining, and evening entertainment, what more could you ask for. Decks outside were dog friendly too!

If you sit outside you are right on the water. Go for the afternoon specials and enjoy it. The food is good but again, it's one of the few places to go eat on the island. Went there a couple of times and will go back.

We were so fortunate to spend a couple of days on Lopez!! The first evening, we hit The Islander for some beverages outside in the sun. It was fantastic. We had other plans for dinner, but opted to stay there for their yummy prime rib. I am picky about clam chowder - and the Islander's was excellent! Hoping to bring... More

This was the absolute worst service I've ever seen and I'm far from picky. After ordering drinks and coconut shrimp, my beer arrived but no drink for my wife. Then beer battered shrimp arrived instead of coconut shrimp. I then went inside to check the ferry schedule and low and behold there's my wife's drink sitting on the bar, which... More
