“Drink a beer”
Reviewed 7 May 2013

This is the top spot in Friday Harbor for a beer. FH is small enough that when you have a few here, you are close enough to stumble back to your home or boat, worry free.

“Place to play pool and have a bite to eat.”
Reviewed 8 October 2012

Average tavern with food. Seems that locals were the ones that patronize the place. It's off season so it might be more busy in peak season.

“Great place to hang with the locals”
Reviewed 30 September 2012

Spent two nights in a row at Herbs watching football and listening to the locals. Great place to chill, play darts and billards. Great selection of beer, I couldn't keep away from the Alaska Amber Ale. Food is the typical bar variety.

“A good brew and burger with nostalgia”
Reviewed 7 August 2012

We had some time before the ferry back to Orcas and Herb's looked interesting. In a locale of restaurants catering to tourists, Herb's is an old fashioned tavern. Lots of game tables, interesting memorablia and local art. Would like to have a place like this back home.
Great selection of microbrews from the area. Got to try and enjoy a new brew. Service was attentive though the crowd was light.
We didn't plan on a burger on this trip but decided to go for it. Both tried different versions of the American classic and enjoyed them.
Got to see some local color and enjoy good brews with our burgers. A nice flash back in time.
