Enjoyed my birthday dinner here and got my fill of seafood! Cocktails were tasty, and we got ribeye and the bouillabaisse. Key lime mousse was good.

The hostess at the door was a bit cold. It was a bit busy but our waiter hustled, and was very helpful. The food was very good. All four of us really enjoyed our menu choices.
A bit pricey, but the service and food were good value.

Beautiful setting, outside, overlooking Friday Harbor. The food was excellent (try the crab deviled eggs👍) as was the service with everyone following the COVID-19 guidelines very well.
Can’t wait to go back ! 😋

Very accommodating with the delayed ferry, very appreciative of the staff to work with us.
It is a staple for us when in Friday Harbor.

We had a wonderful evening and the food was excellent. The Toasted Coconut Mojoto was outstanding and the Cookie and ice cream was amazing. The wait staff was very attentive as well. The only reason I would take away a star was that the scallops and gnocchi while very tasty the dish only had 3 scallops for $38 which I consider to be overpriced.

This was our second time to Downriggers on our trip. The first was lunch the day prior. The food and the service amazing, especially when it came to the daily specials and cocktail menu. We will be back in the future.

Lovely to sit on the deck and watch the marina. We love eating here when we are in town, but mostly for the ambiance. The food is good, but expensive for what you are really

Sat out side with a perfect.View of one of the most beautiful marinas in the country. The food is great, ask what the special is and order it. Most likely a delightful fresh fish thing. Special place to relax and take in life as it floats past at five knots

My salmon meal was under cooked, taken back to the kitchen without question, but I had to wait another 20 minutes while my husband ate his dinner before starting mine. No apologies or compensation was offered. Disappointing for a restaurant of this standing.
