Quite expensive for what you get but food was prepared simply and tastefully. Good comfort food but nothing special. Our waitstaff was personable and efficient. My only complaint is not being seated far enough away from the next table. During time of pandemic, I was surprised that people were being seated far too closely for me to feel comfortable. The view though was spectacular!

This was our 52nd wedding anniversary dinner celebration. I made a reservation for 6:00 and due to traffic we didn’t get there until almost 6:30. We were immediately seated at the window overlooking the marina which is where I had requested we be seated when making my reservation. The whole experience was great; wait staff, drinks, food and ambiance. It was a little noisy but still a wonderful experience. We will be back as we learned the Early Dining experience is starting up again.

LOVED our early bird dinner at Hearthfire. Service, food, everything was Wonderful! Our Server was especially Terrific -he couldn't have been better. Especially enjoyed the Outdoor Seating overlooking the Boat Marina/Bellingham Bay and as a Bonus we absolutely & totally enjoyed hearing the Live Music that was nearby. Thank You!

The food was excellent (Burger & Fries, Cod & Chips). The service was unusually slow.
Our "Birthday Celebration" went unnoticed.

I love the Crab & Corn Chowder, it’s heaven. Unfortunately, it was not available, I was disappointed. I have to give them grace, with COVID, the seafood menu is very limited which is understandable.
I would recommend Anthony’s Hearthfire to everyone, it’s one of my favorites

Usually excellent, but slightly disappointing this time. We were seated at a table in the bar even though we had a birthday dinner reservation for a window table. It was a window table, but not an ideal location. The bar has a TV (😝), and a tile floor, and the conversation is louder, and the ambiance is not as nice as the main floor. My date had a very small, licensed, service dog, so perhaps that's why we were seated in the bar area, with the hard floor? My MaiTai was pleasant, and I usually prefer them not too strong, but this time it was too weak on the rum, and too much ice.
The halibut ($41) was very good, a large piece, but slightly overcooked. The sides of rice pilaf with craisins, and the green beens, were very good, as usual, but the portions were skimpy. The Caesar was too small, and not very flavorful: the dressing was not exciting, and it could have used more cheese, and some croutons. The menu seemed smaller than my last visit, pre-Covid.
I still highly recommend the Hearthfire, and look forward to another visit for lunch.

Normally this is one of our most favorite restaurants torestaurants to eat at for special occasions. This time was a big disappointment. We had let the restaurant know in advance that we wanted the best table that they had for our anniversary and ended up with a table that was right next to the pay station and back door. Lots of traffic buzzing by us with a tiny table. We were willing to wait for something nicer since we were early but were rushed through. The waiter seemed like he was having an off day which kind of added to the disappointment of our experience and the food was average at best. He did however bring out ever bring out a dish of ice cream for us to share complimentary for our anniversary occasion.
Not our usual experience but a huge disappointment for what was a monumental day for us.

We sat outside and there was a band playing next door so that is why the noise level is a three. But we liked the band. It was an excellent experience.

I always enjoy looking at the harbor during dinner. I used to enjoy the warm dinner rolls for appetizers but this time they served something else which was hard and not tasty. The dinner, however, was great, especially since I enjoy a great steak.

Disappointed. The only good part was the sunset view, the rest were all below expectations. The filet was over priced, I was not impressed at all. The salmon was way over done and stuck in our teeth easily. We left over 80% of salmon untouched. Our waitress was even not bothered to ask why. We were also left unattended for most of time. Our waitress appeared in bad mood, we didn’t feel welcomed. Oh, forgot to mention our dinner started with a dirty plate that I had to ask for a replacement.

The food was great but it was warm inside the restaurant and I wanted sime ice wAter after being seated. After a long wait I went ti the hostess desk to ask for service. I was eating alone and felt ignored. Water glass needed refills but no bus service available. When did service get so bad?

Very disappointed in our experience at Hearthfire. Food was expensive (which was expected) but poor given the cost and the supposed "freshness" of ingredients. For example:

Salad was soggy with too much dressing. The Bay shrimp on the salad was flavorless. The fruit on the salad was soggy.

The fish from the fish and chips was not crispy, as fried/breaded fish should be and was also flavorless.

Our waiter was far too clingy and animated - we were at a nice restaurant, not an Applebees. Calm down.

Highlights: French fries were great. The Farmstrong Pilsner was cold and tasty.

All in all, our party of three spent $80 on two good beers and some great french fries.

Also, the person (not our waiter, maybe the manager?) who brought our food to the table suggested he knew my mom was the one who ordered the salad, because "she looks like the salad type." This was insulting to a woman who is already self-conscious about her appearance.

Very disappointed in Hearthfire. Will not return.

Our first time there. Excellent food and service. Noise level was a little higher than we would have liked, not as pleasant ambience as we expected based upon the website and photos included. parking on a Thursday evening was surprisingly difficult. Where are all those people? We will return.

Anthony's Hearthfire is our favorite place to celebrate special occasions. Seems it has become very popular with a lot of other people as well. We had a reservation, since that seems to be necessary this summer (2021). It was very busy, but we had a nice table by a window in a quiet part of the restaurant.

Food was delicious, our waitress was wonderful, and she even took my husband's over-cooked burger back to get him a rare one. She also put together my special order (grilled salmon over the seasonal salad, which used to be a regular item). The wait staff and chefs worked hard to make sure we were happy with our meal.

Prices are up everywhere, what can I say. Anthony's is worth it for special occasions like a birthday.

We enjoyed our dinner there very much.

Service and food was excellent. We had the ling cod and it was amazing, served with rice pilaf with cranberries and pistachios. The waitress suggested sharing a spinach/peach salad and it more than enough for each of us, and delicious! We had a corner table with windows all around and an excellent view of the harbor and boats. Can’t wait to go back.
