Description: What better way to spend a summer afternoon than relaxing in this over-the-water restaurant dining on coastal-casual cuisine and sipping flavorful cocktails? The deck sits over harbor, offering diners the only sunset view over water on the island. Fresh salads, creative grill sandwiches and famous BBQ ribs are menu favorites.

Lovely setting and great food. Try the shrimp and avocado "cocktail" -- it's delicious!! Course with the view of the water any meal would be great!

Thank you for your review! Shrimp & avocado cocktail sure is awesome, especially out on the deck in the sunshine. Definitely join us again for more. 2018 is looking to be an amazing summer for good weather!
Cheers!

My husband and I went to Madrona for lunch and I was disappointed although my husband said it was “ok.” Our soup was Luke warm and I ordered the Kobe Beef Deep and didn’t care for it. My husband had to go look for the waitress so I could order something else because she never came to check on us. It took her to pass our table 4 times before she offered a refill. We took our leftovers back to the resort and ended up throwing them out. I don’t think I will return or recommend this place.

Waterfront dining in a snug little harbor on the north side of San Juan. Great location, fantastic service, superb food, and very reasonably price. Hands down much better than anything in Friday Harbor for a total dining experience. A stroll through the gardens afterwards amongst the flowers and hummingbirds topped off the experience.
About 20 minutes from Friday harbor, lots of parking available, beautiful buildings, and numerous boats swaying gently in the harbor and dockside.
A must when visiting the island!

Amazing little place on the harbor! Service was fantastic and scenery even better! Optional deck seating, great food and a decent never menu. There are a couple shops in the area to walk off your meal. Peel and eat shrimp appetizer left a lot to be desired, but the rockfish fish and chips was outstanding!!

We stopped onto the deck of the restaurant complex with hunger stabbing both our stomachs. We looked over the menu and several things struck us. It was a bit higher in price than some lunch places. There are some fantastic items on their menu. We weren't leaving without having lunch. I had the crab mac n cheese. Amy had a salad. We both agreed that it was magnificent. Despite the cost (the view is worth the price without the food.....the food just makes it all even more terrific), we would have to eat there again.
