Lunch at Westcott Bay Shellfish this Summer

Westcott Bay Shellfish and Coho Restaurant for your dining itinerary

The culinary scene on San Juan Island is as vibrant and fresh as the bounty of seafood pulled from the Salish Sea and produce grown by our local farmers in fertile soils. It’s this farm and boat-to-table approach that diners crave on a visit to the San Juans; one place, in particular, offering these Pacific Northwest delights is Westcott Bay Shellfish. The specialty here is the fresh-shucked oysters harvested just yards away from the dining space! 

Westcott Bay Shellfish and the Tide Tables Restaurant is one of the best places for lunch on San Juan Island. Summer reservations are open now and always fill up, so be sure to book in advance. The beautiful patio space leads right up to the water’s edge, where the expert culinary staff can direct you in shucking your own raw oysters, and they grill up these Northwest delicacies over an open fire. Follow these seafood treats with fresh salads, steamed clams and mussels, and a perfectly paired wine list. 

While a day trip to the San Juan Islands is always a treat, true relaxation comes when you make it a full weekend getaway or extended trip. That’s where our Friday Harbor lodging property comes in—steps from the ferry, we’re one of the most convenient places to stay on the island. Our 18-unit Inn offers an array of lodging options for couples, groups, families, or solo travelers. Every room has luxurious amenities and offers the perfect space for your home away from home. Check our upcoming availability and book your room today!

Dining Itinerary: Lunch at Westcott Bay Shellfish; Dinner at Coho Restaurant

As a guest at our bed and breakfast in Friday Harbor, you’ll start your culinary adventure in the morning with a scratch-made breakfast delivered to your door! Before you check in, you’ll receive a survey so you can tell us about dietary preferences and allergies. The menu changes daily, including sweet and savory options, French press coffee, fresh juice, and fruit. You’ll love starting with our house-made granola and yogurt. 

You’ll be fueled up and ready to explore all of the best activities on San Juan Island. Head out on foot to explore the shops in downtown Friday Harbor or book a half-day kayaking excursion. Hop into your car or on your bike and head towards Roche Harbor, stop off for a wine tasting at San Juan Vineyard, and tour the San Juan Island Sculpture Garden. After you’ve worked up an appetite, head to Westcott Bay Shellfish for one of the most memorable meals of your trip. 

Enjoy the Westcott Bay Shellfish menu, which includes locally farmed shucked oysters, steamed clams and mussels, salads and charcuterie, and grilled cheese. The menu is paired with a thoughtful wine, beer, and beverage list. The outdoor picnic tables are highly coveted during the summer, so make reservations well in advance. 

After you’ve had your fill of fresh Westcott Bay Shellfish, you’ll be ready to set off on your next adventure! Head to the nearby Roche Harbor to explore the marina or discover the McMillin Memorial Mausoleum on the After Glow Vista Trail. Or take the scenic route out to American Camp on the island’s Southern end with striking bluffs, the Cattle Point Lighthouse, and a beautiful rocky shoreline for treasure hunts on the beach. 

Next up, Dinner at Coho Restaurant 

This lovely farm-to-fork restaurant is just a block from our Friday Harbor bed and breakfast. It is the culinary heart of our food service program at the Inn and serves as an elegant dining option for guests, visitors, and locals alike. Open for dinner only; we always suggest making a reservation at least once during your stay. 

The methodology at Coho Restaurant is simple: fresh-grown, locally sourced, and scratch-made whenever possible. You’ll enjoy our four-course prix fixe menu that changes with the seasons and includes soup, salad, bread, one small plate, one large plate, and dessert. An additional wine pairing is available as well. 

The elegant, candlelit space, airy architecture, and homey feel of our renovated Craftsman set the perfect tone for an elegant meal during your stay in Friday Harbor.
