We stopped in on a Friday night and they had a live band playing which was pretty good. The specials looked good so I had the perogies and kielbasa and my husband had the bbq ribs. Wow their portions are huge, we shouldn't have ordered the humus apply but it was delicious, I'm glad we did.

We spent 2 days in Friday Harbor and found Rumor Mill on the last day. I wish we had seen it sooner. So many of the restaurants we visited were disappointing. Upon walking in we were warmly greeted and welcomed in. Claire was very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu as well as the extensive selection of micro brews. We observed her treat each group coming in the same way. The food was excellent, I had the salmon and it was cooked perfectly. Excellent flavor. This is definitely a place you want to put on your list of places to go. It's just up the street from the ferry so the location is great.

Nice, peppy place with a live band in the evenings that really gets the crowd dancing.

Waitresses are little spaced out, so be very clear with your orders and refill requests. Also, the windows are kept open thru the night so remember to sit away from the windows on chilly days.

Food was ok, the drinks were good. good selection of beers.

Stupid name, but good food, nice atmosphere, and periodically live music--check it out. A good bar. Decent service. Children do ok here. Near the ferry parking lot.

3.5 stars. One of the only places open on a winter Sunday night waiting for a ferry, so we decided to check it out - the Valentine's day theme was adorable, and the place definitely had a unique vibe to it (bathroom sinks made out of silver metal serving bowls?). Food was good, nothing to write home about (except for the honey kadaif dessert, which was fantastic) and definitely over-priced, but the live jazz band totally made up for that and created a nice intimate atmosphere which was perfect for our date night. Recommend this place for when a band is playing.
