At the Rumor Mill after a movie. There was an open mic event, the mellow music added to our enjoyment. We sat in the lounge area, the waitress was very attentive and aware of our needs. The food was really great, I haven't had kalbi ribs that good since living in Hawaii. My husband ordered the reuben and was very pleased with the in house prepared corned beef and the choice of sides. Definately will go again!

Great Food and Music
The food was great as well as the service, the best strawberry shortcake I have ever had. There was a big band playing this night and the place was hopping!! Really fun night!

Great food, staff and music
The food was exceptional (3 different things ordered and we were exchanging bites with oohs and aaahs) Our waitress was always right there when we needed her, not sure quite how she did that with all of the tables she had but it was awesome! We added an extra person at the last minute and it was no problem for them to fit her in. Music was great too!

Amazing 5 course dinner
We were there for a 5 course dinner paired with Widmer beers. Every single course was superb! Wait staff was very busy yet still very attentive! I love this place!

Rumor has it...
We were out shopping and stumbled upon the Rumor Mill. The menu was posted outside. Is sounded interesting and different so we made a reservation for that evening. The menu was not very big but the food was fantastic. We tried the Red Pepper and Cauliflower soup and smoked chicken wings from the daily sheet; both were scrumptious, For dinner my husband had the meatloaf...it was not your mama's meatloaf. Beef and pork, savory and cooked under a layer of bacon. While this was great...it was the gravy that was the ultimate. There was also a nod to the owners Greek roots and the combo was amazing from freshly made Spanakopita and house Greek Dressing. The food offered was obviously made with care and attention. Loved it!

A fun Thursday night
The setting: It's key to come to Friday Harbor on a weeknight; too many tourists Friday through Sunday. The table we got was pleasant, right next to the front "wall" of the restaurant, exposed to open air by a raised garage door (well concealed by plant boxes). The live music was an unidentifiable sub-genre of rock, but the performers were talented and sang remarkable harmonies.
The food: the Beet Salad was wonderful (even without the goat cheese, ordered vegan), with a noteworthy citrus cumin dressing. The dessert, a fresh Blueberry and Nectarine plate with a dollop of sweet cream, was one of the best desserts I've ever had, simple and sweet. Another diner at our table ordered a Capicola pizza which he loved.

Great options on Menu
You can find Gluten Free and Vegan dishes marked on menu. The specials are always interesting. The Beer menu also contains Gluten Free options, a rarity.
My wife had a bacon cheeseburger with a twist with Pancetta and Gorgonzola. I had the gluten free Salmon.

Wonderful food plus jazz
We had a great night at the Rumor Mill. Service was impeccable even though the place was packed. I had parmesan crusted cod and my husband had a pizza, they were both wonderful! The addition of a really good jazz quintet was perfect. I will definitely be going to the Rumor Mill again and often!

A wonderful experience
We enjoyed a fantastic tasting green curry beef with vegetables. My husband had a pizza and loved it. We also enjoyed the singer/songwriter that was playing this evening. We could understand his lyrics and still have a conversation.
Really great place!!
