There are nearly two-dozen eateries within three blocks of Bird Rock Hotel. Many of them emphasize fresh, San Juan Island grown produce, meats and seafood. Some are recognized as among the finest dining experiences in the Pacific Northwest. Whatever you crave, you’ll find plenty of satisfaction in Friday Harbor within easy walking distance of Bird Rock Hotel. Here is a far-from-exhaustive list of our personal favorites:

Breakfast

We prepare a homemade continental breakfast each morning. If you prefer a heartier morning start to your San Juan Island adventure, you might try:

Rocky Bay Cafe: reliable diner fare.

Lunch

Of course, the best San Juan Island lunch involves filling a picnic basket in Friday Harbor and heading out to one of the many San Juan Island parks or beaches. We can help with that, if you’re interested.

Market Chef - award-winning artisan deli.

Dinner

Summer reservations are a must, especially on San Juan Island weekends. We can help with that.
