Great start but needs to maintain
We went the very first night packers re opened. We were there for the last night too. Opening night was amazing. Food was excellent. Service good for such a busy night. It would have gotten five stars if not for my return visit. Service was very slow. 10 minutes at table before we were even recognized. Half the tables were empty yet service took longer than first night.
Also, the bread was amazing on opening night. 3 nights later it was so hard I think it was leftover from opening nite! I will return but if they don't maintain good service and food.

Excellent Dinner at Simiahmoo
We loved the excellent meals for dinner. Presented beautifully, unusual, and great taste. We each chose a different meal and tasted each person's so we were able to taste many choices and all were amazing. Clarissa served us and she is efficient and so personable. We loved her!!! Great going!

Seaside close to the city
First time here, awesome seaside oasis with great sunset view. Food was not your everyday fare. If you are looking for something you won't get at home with a spectacular atmosphere this is the place for you.

Great food in a stunning location
It was not surprising to me that Packers struggled a bit with service during its first weeks back in business. Even though the servers were very engaging and professional, they couldn't quite compensate for the uneven food service. But the food itself was such a surprising success across the board, my group didn't care about the wait between courses. Overall, it was a great meal. The halibut and short rib dishes were a particular hit.

I have been there many times
I have been there many times before the closure and was very excited for the reopening. What a disappointment. Same great atmosphere but the original menu was 100% better. We drive from Everson to have dinner but don't think we will be back.Sometimes reopenings don't require changing.

SImple Pleasure at Semiahmoo
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.

Packers - Packed with fun
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 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.

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.

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.

Coming on Strong
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.

Good Food & Great Scenery..
Packers Oyster Bar was the perfect place to celebrate my husband's birthday..we love the ocean and the the ocean front view was spectacular, looking over to White Rock beach. The food was of professional gourmet quality and had very good service from our server Lauren....all & all a wonderful experience and we will be coming back again!
