We love this place! Service seemed just a bit delayed but Adam was great as always.
Menu seemed limited if you couldn't eat shellfish or lobster.
Will definitely be back for the ambience

They ran out of several menu items at 6:15 pm (only an hour into dinner service) and what was left was over-priced and mediocre in the taste arena. This was a destination weekend. Disappointed

This was our first visit to the restaurant. All of us were pleasantly surprised by the overall experience. The service was spot-on and every course was delicious. A wonderful way to celebrate a birthday. I definitely recommend this place!! BTW - the Caesar salad is one of the best I’ve had :)

We decided to come here after searching "Best Places to eat in Bellingham". We figured it was a nicer drive than to downtown Vancouver, BC. So we did the 21 mile drive and was pleasantly surprised at the location. This restaurant was located near old Fairhaven and has a fantastic view of the water. There are other restaurants in the area, but we chose this one due to the ambience. Anthony's is another one on the water, but it was a more-relaxed atmosphere. Either places would be great in the summer when you can enjoy the outdoor deck in the sun.

Adam was our server and he was very attentive and informative. We had a great time! Food selection is adequate and the drink selection is also very good. Portion size is "fine dining" size, so do not expect to eat large portions although I was full in the end.

fantastic views of the bay and the islands, combined with a great sunset, made for a perfect outdoor evening. I also got to enjoy the restaurant in the winter time and with fire place on, made this establishment very cozy.

The food was excellent as was the service...our waiter was very attentive but not overbearing...food arrived promptly and was very flavourful and well plated.
The location offered a nice view...unfortunately the weather did not lend itself to outdoor dining although lunch...had we stayed would have been pleasant.....prices were comparable to finer dining and with the coupons given as part of our hotel stay, dinner and breakfast were quite reasonable...live piano music in the bar section was nice background.
Overall a very pleasant dining experience and we would certainly partake of the dinner package when we stay at the hotel again.

We came early (5:00) and were told they were out already out of crab cakes! Menu selection leaves much to be desired. Would rather they had a few signature dishes than menu items you might find anywhere. Service was good.

the service was at best, adequate. it took over ten minutes for a waiter/waitress to bring us water and ask us if we wanted a beverage. the food, adequate as well. Nothing special. It's a shame too as the location is amazing, right on the water. It is too bad the food and service were not up to par. We would not return to this restaurant again.

This location has had several different restaurants in the past few years, all of which were disappointing. Finally, I think we have a winner. The location is superb, and this time the restaurant lives up to the location.

The best view of Bellingham bay from any restaurant with outside seating in Bellingham. Marina boat traffic, sailboat races, people flying kites and sunset on the bay all make this spot one the best dining experiences in Whatcom County. Their new menu is a real upgrade, fresh seafood lots of small plate options for sharing or for appetizers with a drink all at a moderate price.
