Diner Reviews
  • "Matt and his staff do a great job at making you feel at home in addition to providing some unique and delicious food. We had a variety of the small plates and they were all excellent. Paired with a nice Cabernet...made for a fine dining experience."

  • "We have been to the Rumor Mill several times, twice for special events on Valentine's Day and St. Patrck's Day. The food and service is always first rate! There is an extensive menu of beer on tap, a good wine selection, and a full bar. Best place in Friday Harbor! It's the happening place for local social activities. highly recommend it!"

  • "We had such good food and fun atmosphere that we came back for a second night in a row! We saw a different band each night. Even danced to one if them. Wish we could come back for Sunday might jazz! Definitely check them out."

  • "We were pleasantly surprised with the food and the entertainment thought the music did not need to be amplified as the club is small ! . Great service and a menu that is "all over the page", as well as the drink menu is "way out there !" All the food was done very nicely and the drinks were made well. The food offerings were wildly varied from American to Greek to California Nuveau, and European. Some of the cocktails sounded interesting and some sounded awful. WE left right after dinner because we could not hear each other to talk afterwards. The restaurant lost our evening drink orders because of the volume. Over all a great local attempt at a small nightclub atmosphere that comes off well for Friday Harbor !"

  • "This was our first time to Friday Harbor and it was a family dinner out. This is a cute small town attempt at a nightclub and restaurant... and it works ! The menu and the drink list is "all over the page" meaning an assembly of many types and cuisines. The drink list had some interesting sounding drinks, and some that sounded horrible. We did not experiment. Our food was hot and very good. Service was professional and friendly. The music was excellent but LOUD. The size of the club should have dictated if they used amplifiers or not ! We left as soon as the music started. We would have liked to stay and talk and have another drink or two, but could not hear over the music. Overall the experience was quaint and pleasant. C&H"

  • "Most weekends you can count on live music. A good variety of local bands and imported groups. We only make reservations on holidays like Valentines. The menu has a good variety that will satisfy the entire family. The beer selection is large. We often bring our visiting friends and family."

  • "My husband took me to the Rumor Mill for Valentine's Day dinner. We were awed by the beautiful decorations when we walked in. We loved the placement of our romantic table for 2. There were several specials and they all sounded so good it was hard to decide. My husband and Coq au Riesling, a different choice for him but he loved it and I had the flat iron steak that was cooked to perfection. The waiter was attentive, we always had filled water glasses and the owner even came out to check how we were doing! This was 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!!"

  • "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!"
