Restaurants in San Juan Islands

Chefs at San Juan Islands restaurants draw from their local bounty in the best way possible. Diners will find some of the best seafood anywhere in the Pacific Northwest and have no doubt it is fresh caught nearby. The ocean bounty in restaurants in the San Juan Islands includes Dungeness crabs, salmon, clams, mussels, and oysters. You’ll be able to find the seafood served in a myriad of ways, from roasted oysters to crab cakes to a bowl of steaming clam chowder.

Diners unsure of where to start will want to explore the San Juan Islands restaurants in Friday Harbor, the only incorporated town on the islands and the site where the ferry will drop guests off. Casual to-go lunches for picnics by the water or fish & chip shops are a laid-back start to your dining experience.

There is a wide array of non-seafood cuisines available to diners as well, with fine steakhouses, Asian spots, and farm-to-table experiences making up some of the best restaurants in the San Juan Islands.
