We enjoyed a special 2 for $70 early dinner deal (available between 5:00 and 5:45) that included a bottle of wine, a soup & salad first course, an entree, and house-made ice cream for dessert. Sometimes limited choices are a good thing: we weren't familiar with the wines offered for this deal, but went with the recommendation of the staff, and we both enjoyed the wine. My husband had the troll-caught salmon, noting it was one of the most perfectly cooked pieces of salmon he's ever tasted, and I had the whole roast rainbow trout, which brought me back to my beloved Italian mom-mom's kitchen and eating the fish that Pop-pop caught regularly. These meals were not on the special "Chef's Tasting" 3 course menu, but we could substitute any entree offered and would just have to pay the price difference. The trout was the same price, the salmon was only a few dollars more, an easy swap. I loved my homemade chocolate ice cream-very smooth and custardy. The staff was very nice and attentive. The space is small, so when a "Ladies Night Out" celebration came in, the room got a little noisy for quiet conversation. Unless you have quiet, patient children with adventurous palates, I would probably save this dining experience for the adults. The Chef's Tasting was a great way to get a gourmet meal and still have time and daylight to walk around the lovely town of Friday Harbor. It was also a very good value and excellent quality of food compared to other restaurants in town. It may lack a water view, but with the beautiful, delicious food and happy staff, you won't miss it. Side note: if they have some of their special granola for sale-buy it, and Anna Maria's cookbook too, so you can make your own. We enjoyed the granola every morning with breakfast at Tucker House, and it's some of the best I've ever had.
