A word from Packers Oyster Bar at Semiahmoo Resort
Packers Oyster Bar, located off the main lobby at Semiahmoo Resort, is a dining venue dedicated to capturing and preserving the history and romance of the early 1900s and the abundant canneries and fisheries that thrived a mere stone’s throw from the site of today’s restaurant. Though the industry has fallen quiet over the past decades, Packers is a living commitment to revive and celebrate the historic business and lifestyle significance to the region. Artifacts and images of times past abound, in tribute to that longstanding tradition of hard work and bountiful fish.Continued

  • "Packers was under construction while we were there and the restaurant was in a temporary, but very comfortable location with a great view. Service and food was great as usual. Can't wait to see the renovated Packers!"

  • "We have been going to Semiahmoo for years and especially liked going to Packers Lounge and really enjoyed their menu. We realize that they are renovating the lounge , but we found that their new location lacked ambience and also the menu selection was limited. I guess we were expecting it to be the same as the previous times that we were there. We also found that the service was very slow."

  • "too big a group that was understaffed, some meals cold and took 2 hours for food"

  • "Our original plans for Valentine's day fell through so we checked open table for available tables and found Packers Oyster Bar. When we arrived, we were pleasantly surprised by how beautiful the grounds were and the service. The menu had a great variety and they had a fairly sizable wine list. Overall, the best dinner I have ever had. Very enjoyable!"

  • "When construction is done on the reno, we'll come back. The food was very good and our server(s) was spot on."

  • "I've been here in the past and really enjoyed the location. Food is a bit expensive for what it is but worth it for the view. Downside for right now is that it is closed till April. There is another restaurant in the hotel that has the same menu and view. Just not quite the same as the Oyster Bar."

  • "It took us 90 minutes to get our meal! Not an acceptable amount of time to wait for any meal!"

  • "Needs improvement on the wine list. When we ordered our deep fried mushroom fries with our meal you had run out of them,something better should have been offered in its place!"

  • "I can understand that the kitchen was busy and our order got lost but the server totally ignored us after taking our order, no coffee refills, no eye contact, no wondering what happened to us. Untill I asked the hostess to check on our order, after we waited 50 minutesl. Then the server came over to tell us that the order was lost in the kitchen and that they were fixing it now. also that it's taken care of. After bring our food she never offered more coffee,, never that thank you, sorry about the wait, please come back again, or was everything OK. I had to find her when we were leaving to make use we didn't need to pay. We appreciated the free meal but wouldn't mind paying if the service would have been better.."

  • "We had our new years dinner here and appreciated the casual dining experience and the smaller menu. A very friendly atmosphere. Although there was a tv turned on for the sports fans the volume was turned completely off which we very much appreciated."

  • "Nice place to visit with people while you eat. Outstanding scenic views and decor. Favorite place for morning brunch on Sundays. Food could be better, need to work on consistancy. All service staff seem to be very good and friendly. Been there 5 times and have always had good friendly service. Coffee often is cold and you have to ask to have it warmed up."

  • "Under new management, Packers has improved from being a place we go because it's nearby, to the kind of place we would drive a long distance to reach, even if we didn't live nearby. The food is on a par with our favorite restaurants in Portland, Seattle and Vancouver--but with a far better view than most. And it's reasonably priced. For our anniversary this year, we couldn't think of a better place to celebrate. Unlike in the past, the chef now varies the menu so even return trips surprise with new plates and preparations. Packers still has the coziness of a neighborhood bar, now combined with top-flight culinary ambitions."

  • "Since "re-opening" Packers has really improved the Service level and significantly increased the quality of the Food and it's presentation! This is a real neighborhood favorite now!!! We'll be back and soon!"

  • "For R and R and some rehearsal time, with violin and cello duos. Beach walking and water birds, all lovely. Housekeeping staff most oblliging when we forgot to leave notification on room door that the room was ready for maid service. Also, I just lost my husband, and the staff left me, and my fellow musicians, and lovely bottle of wind and a dear note of condolence. A thousand thanks for such thought! A cellist."

  • "We had a lovely time over two nights, and enjoyed Packers both times. The first night in the bar was particularly lovely, although the food was great both times. Maybe a few more salads on the menu would be welcome!! - just a thought. We celebrated our 45th anniv. Best Phillip & Shirley"

  • "New ownership and management/chefs. This is a unique and beautiful venue that is finally being given the extraordinary treatment it deserves. In just a few weeks, the quality of service has come up to speed and the quality of the food is very, very, good. On Sunday night, the entertainment was quite nice. I highly recommend. Great for outdoor dining in the summer."

  • "We stayed at the Semiahmoo Resort for the weekend and went to Packers. It was a top notch experience! We were surprised that for the only onsite choice eatery, this was 5 star dining. Our server was great too, very friendly and accommodating. We would highly recommend eating here. Our only regret is that we did not try their breakfast and lunch."

  • "We stayed at the hotel so we went to Oysters for dinner. Food was great and they had a good beer selection and decent prices we will be back."

  • "gorgeous setting - lovely ambience inside and out - but REALLY poorly marked from the street - even the front door of the resort is poorly marked....this restaurant is tucked away behind the resort - either a walk along boardwalk from industrial back lot of resort or through the resort... service was very slow - and the restaurant was not very full - we had a reservation at noon - it took over 40 mins for our food to arrive after we ordered it. the food itself was mixed - my salmon sandwich came on a bun that was completely inappropriate - thick chewy ciabata bun that would have killed the delicate salmon - I chose to eat the sandwich insides on their own and left the bun aside - it was not very fresh either. the fries were not great"

  • "The English bartender helped make a birthday celebration an easy one. We started off sitting at the bar for a drink and we were so comfortable we stayed there and had dinner, giving up our table at the window. I fear that with new management this little gem will be redecorated and I hate to see it change as I love the comfort it offers now. Our food was excellent. So nice to have a safe walk back to the room, under cover, after eating and drinking a little extra. I love this place!"

  • "We are very happy that Packers has re-opened and value the additional option it offers in the area. The food and service were mediocre; conversation was impossible due to the entertainment and general noise. However, we were there to celebrate a special occasion and the energy and crowd created a good ambience. We would suggest going during the day or near sunset to enjoy the view and possibly avoid the noise. The survey should offer a "Possibly" option on whether we would recommend this to a friend. It would depend on the friend and their expectation of the setting."

  • "Love this place! Great for casual dining, a glass of wine and time to relax. The menu offers good variety and quality food at moderate prices. The resort staff and service is excellent. If going for dinner, be sure to get there early for Happy hour prices on good wines and nice selection of appetizers."
