"I am writing to RAVE about the new Bluff Restaurant!
The food is wonderful—with a sophisticated flare, yet not too fussy. The ingredients are fresh and combined with interesting herbs and flavors. The presentation is creative and beautiful too. I love the décor—the colors are really soothing and warm, yet with life and energy. The orange patterned fabric on the back wall seat is my favorite. The artwork immediately catches my eye and is fun. I like the informality of the setting, without it feeling “sloppy.” It all seems to come together to beautifully complement-- but not detract from-- the stunning view. And, with your lunch time hours, we were even able to enjoy the patio outside for one the most enjoyable experiences of the summer! To top it off, because of the reasonable price range, it’s now a place we feel good about going back to on a regular basis and bringing friends to.
For years, we’ve been in search of a great place to go for lunch and dinner on a regular basis and now we’ve found it at the Bluff Restaurant! The restaurant is one of the little pleasures that makes this island an even more special place. "
"Just wanted to send you a big THANK YOU for my week-end getaway that I used this week-end for my partner Sherm’s birthday present. We had so much fun! We stayed at the Friday Harbor House and had a wonderful room. The room had a full view balcony that we could sit and watch the ferry and boats coming in. It also had a Jacuzzi tub in the middle of the room so at night we could turn the lights off and sit in the tub and look out at all the boats and lights from the island. It had a gas fireplace and Sherm loved sitting there with his beer, watching NASCAR with the fireplace on. The dinner was OUTSTANDING. It was at Friday Harbor House's Harbor View Restaurant and the food was to die for. We SO over-ate and enjoyed every bite. We had oysters with a vodka sauce and I had a rack of lamb in a wonderful sauce and Sherm had a browned chicken that was so tender it was hard to believe it was chicken. We had some friends with us, and they had the halibut, which they loved.
The hotel and restaurant staff was very welcoming and made us feel right at home. When we went to the restaurant, they had our menu prepared just for us, they printed on it “Welcome Simplot party”. It was a very nice surprise."
"Ron and I had a great time when we went to Friday Harbor with The Great Maggie II Giveaway. We enjoyed our flight up to Friday Harbor and our stay with all of you at The Friday Harbor House. Our room was more than we could have hoped for. The view of the straits was gorgeous. The fresh fruit and all of the little extras were so nice. I have placeed the hand written note from your staff in my scrapbook with all of the pictures we took.
The food, the food, the food! Please tell Chef Ward thank you from us one more time. The Halibut cheeks we had for lunch were the best. Everything was just beautiful."
