Our meal at Downriggers was fine, but not great. It seemed like they were trying really hard to be fancy or pretentious to justify their prices, but it didn't quite work. My husband's very expensive steak was precariously balanced on a tall stack of potatoes and broccoli. Why? My spicy mac and cheese with prawns was very tasty, and the prawns were prepared perfectly. But it was topped with warm arugula and bacon - the flavors did not blend well. They should not have been served together, let alone on top of the dish. The crab tots were good, but not great. Our server did not seem very happy to be there. All in all, it was fine and way overpriced.

The Crab Deviled Eggs were amazing. I saw them on the menu and was intrigued. Crab was topped high on the eggs. Great flavor and texture. Also had the Spicy Prawns Mac & Cheese. Very rich and cheesy. Friend had the small Salmon Cesar salad which was a really good size. Wonderful view where we could watch our ferry come in. Great service, lovely atmosphere. I look forward to my return trip this summer to eat outside.

Excellent food, suburb service and good prices. Waterfront view is fun! I had the grilled crab sandwich and homemade chips, delicious. Friend had the oysters on the half-shell, crab tater tots, wonderful and husband had the cod fish and chips, also good.

This was the best food we had in Friday Harbor. We had a seafood salad, and a seafood sandwich. Both were excellent. The servers were also very nice.

Gotta get the Salmon Ruben!! It was just fantastic. Good service too. But what a great view, so fun to sit on the water and enjoy good food.
