We ordered the early dinner with the flank steak....the steak was very tough and way to much salsa on it. Would rather have salsa on the side. Everything else was excellent.

The view was amazing, and the servers were kind. It was a bit expensive - but that's okay. I enjoyed the food!

We had a reservation and showed up early but got seated right away. When we asked if we could sit on the patio the hostess just said it’s kinda busy. She didn’t check and that was it. The server took about 10 min before she even came by to say hello. She was not very enthusiastic or seemed happy to be at work. I asked about happy which I believed it ended at 6:30 (it was 6:12 at this point) and was told it’s just in the lounge and on the patio and till 6pm. I asked about food suggestions but she wasn’t convincing with the three things she pointed out. Drinks eventually came and by 6:30 we decided to pay for drinks and leave. The initial feeling when we walked in wasn’t great, the server was horrible and the menu didn’t look that great and especially that the extremely high prices. We will never go back there!

My wife had the steak Oscar I had the Waygu sirloin, both were cooked to order, but were tough and very chewy, not tender in the slightest...

I got the surf and turf special with the Oscar and it was OK ( maybe a 5/6)- the steak was tough and the Oscar was not much. My husband got the porkchop and it was fantastic- will go back for that and the drinks were delicious and reasonable.

Came for the early bird Dinner. It was excellent! Probably too much to eat in a sitting, but it was nice that we could take our desserts home with us. The fruit cheesecake was excellent. My only suggestion would be to have a half crafe of wine also available instead of 2 classes of wine. your wine in the USA is so cheap there is no need to charge those prices for a glass.

We always have a great dinner at Hearthfire. The best in Bellingham. Lee was our waitress and she made our dinner exceptionally entertaining and fun. She helped make our anniversary extra special.

We were a party of 4. Two of us had the early bird dinner of scampi prawns that came with the bay shrimp cocktail, ceasar salad and key lime dessert. One had the salmon cake dinner and one had a bowl of toasted tomato soup and the romaine blue cheese and hazelnut salad. All the dinners arrived hot and were tasty. The early bird dinners were a very good value. Our server was terrific. Our only disappointment was that the majority of the menu was seafood oriented or came with the corn pudding as the starch. We've had the corn pudding several times in the past and it ruins all of the dishes it's served with. It is very sweet and tastes like a dessert and not a vegie nor starch.

Still in all, a wonderful place.

Good amount of food choices. Prices are right. Steak was a bit chewy, make sure you receive it the way you ask. Services was great, very friendly from the moment you walk in. Very parking friendly, lots of room. Make a reservation for an easier experience.

We wanted to have just a early relaxing dinner, it is a great location. Great view right on the water beautiful with a sunset. Noise level wasn’t bad, service was good. The waitress was always there for what we needed but didn’t interrupt or feel overbearing. Great place if you want a nice date or fun evening.

My wife and I had an exceptional experience, we had a lovely booth near the ocean and our waitress was very attentive and kind. The food was incredible from the bread, seafood, deserts! Truly great experience and will be back again soon.

First time at this restaurant and it will not be our last. The servers were very attentive, but not bothersome. From the cocktails to the main meal, everything was exceptional. We are from Canada and we also live on the ocean, and this place does seafood right, good as any we have on Vancouver Island.

We received two incorrect orders, and had to wait another 45 minutes to get what we had ordered the first time. Food was great just very disappointed about the order, and then have the waitress basically argue with what was ordered. The order that was given too us was the wrong steak and way over cooked, and the second order was the wrong steak.

New servers were poised and competent, service was done with a smile and needs were met swiftly. The meal was well presented and as described in the menu, with fresh bread brought still hot from the kitchen. The food was just as ordered with one steak medium well and one medium rare delivered to the correct party! A very pleasant experience!

Excellent in all ways except for noise level. There really is no “quieter” zone in this restaurant. Suggest anyone with any hearing impairment should dine mid-afternoon!

Shrimp entrees were very good, although could have had a bit more flavor. The bread had been microwaved and was extremely chewy. But the setting was beautiful and lent itself well to conversation and a relaxing meal.

We weren’t wowed by the food but it was nice because of the view and our server was great! Three out of four of us had the crab chowder and it was so so —my husband said it was too sweet and he thought it had bread chunks in it. I had the mango shrimp salad which tasted very good but the amount of shrimp was pretty skimpy and the shrimp weren’t very flavorful. Would have liked to be a little more excited about the food that was served because I love the view and the location.

Never fails to be a great restaurant. Early dinner M-F until 6:00 pm is a special, reasonabl value. Fantastic setting overlooking the marina.
