Late afternoon today we ate at Dad's Diner. Gabriel, our waiter, was friendly and professional. He was spot on with our order. My husband had the cheeseburger with potato wedges and I had the BBQ pork with no bun, coleslaw, and potato wedges. All arrived warm and ready to eat. We enjoyed our dinner and will return!

Returning from Friday Harbor and needed a quick bite on the road, found Dad's. Absolutely the best breakfast that I've had in years with a huge pancake and bacon to die for.

Although this is a diner, the food is amazing and creative. Crafted by a Very skilled chef. I say chef because this isn't your typical diner style food. Breakfast and lunch served daily, menu is on a chalk board. Our waitress, Liz, was friendly and patient with us on our first visit; we had lots of questions. The chef has... More

Good thing we didn't read the reviews but took our friend's advice. We were seated right under the chalk board menu; lots of great choices. Served quickly. Tasty sandwiches. Then, we went to the smoking trailer to buy brisket for sandwiches the next day.
