First of all, we had no idea that B-Town was actually attached to the hotel we were staying at, we had already decided to go there before we arrived in Bellingham. We love oysters and it was Oyster Week! We got 5 dozen to share among the 4 of us that were in our party, we also tried the Little Gems salad with steak- it was really good and the steak was cooked perfect. They also have select bottles of wine for $15 and happened to have a nice Sauvignon Blanc that paired perfectly with the oysters and the salad. The staff was very friendly and attentive! We sat on the patio and it was very comfortable, we could have stayed all day.

We had a great meal and the best service at B-Town. It was nice to have new things to try. Loved the truffle fries!

The staff was very accommodating to our large party and went out of their way to make my wife’s birthday a memorable one. Our server, Summer, was fantastic!

What a great experience. We had a group of 16 or so people on the patio and the service was excellent. Our waitress did a fantastic job getting everyone's orders correct with happy service. She got all the tabs correct and was very attentive.

I'm so glad I chose to have our birthday celebration on the patio. Thank you so much for a great time!

PS... we miss the dim sum items! But the Brussels Sprouts with bacon and jalapenos are to die for! We all loved them!

Bad oysters and only one person working the floor, including the bar and hostess stand. The server did a great job.

We LOVE B-TOWN. It’s joked about as our “Cheers.” It’s the place where we know what we will get when we get there and we love it every time.

The food was okay, but not what I expected for the price. We enjoyed the appetizers (Brussel sprouts and truffle fries) and far more than the main dishes (we had the burgers and the prime rib dip).

We were disappointed that the tower was no longer available. Which means it is no longer our favorite place to eat, when we are in town.

My request for a quieter spot was honored, and the drinks were ok. I wasn't a big
fan of the caeser salad - it seemed rather small and less than creative. It was just
the inner core of the lettuce ( no leaves really) and a store bought dressing. Lack luster.

We had to sit outside in the freezing cold despite having a reservation. Other people seated out there simply left without eating. The blankets they gave us, and the heaters they turned, on only helped a little. If we did not have our outdoor coats and hats on we would have not made it through dinner. The food and service was good, bur the idea of seating people outside in ice cold weather is an epic fail.

While the service and drinks were good, the food was not. The calamari appetizer was chewy. My wife had a crab salad which was little more than some greens with a small amount of crab. My rib eye steak was small and while it was cooked medium rare (which I requested) it was not a high quality piece of meat. I would go back for drinks but probably not to eat.

My husband and I went for Thanksgiving dinner. The restaurant was not full when we were there, but the waitress rushed us at an extremely uncomfortable speed. Brought food to table when we barely had one bite from the prior dish. Food was ok, but everything was cold. Was not a great experience and would more than likely never go there again.

The ambience just did not match what we expected. That is not to say it was bad, it just didn't fit what I expected based on the description. There was WWF wrestling on all TVs and music that was a bit loud for our taste. We were all 50-somethings plus two grand-mothers. So, not to say this is a bad atmosphere, just not at all what we expected. We aborted without order after sitting for 5 minutes.

Went here for a surprise weekend away date night dinner- was looking for something fun and upbeat for a date with the hubby and this was perfect. Live (and good) music, good service, fire pits, good drinks, great food... PLUS it’s connected to the hotel, so we could both drink without worrying over who was driving. I wouldn’t go here for a fancy meal, but for an upscale casual date night- yes! We will go there again.

The calamari was excellent, the fish and chips were competent, the lobster roll left quite a bit to be desired. Just claw tips and a few small pieces of lobster in something like a thousand island dressing. Not worth going out of your way for. The service was very good, but we were there for lunch on a Saturday and besides my wife and myself, there was just one other paying couple for food plus 2 guys at the bar. Much better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick.

We had a fun girls night here and it was wonderful with the exception of our server. She forgot to put in food orders, took 30+ minutes at times to bring drink orders, and rarely came by the table to check on us or bring water etc. She was apologetic but seemed very absent minded. It did not appear she was slammed with tables (but perhaps she was). We loved the atmosphere of this place and we had a great time, just unfortunate the server was not on top things!

Food was pretty good (quite liked the pot stickers), but service was lacking. No familiarity with ingredients in menu items. Actually canceled open table reservation because of lack of training and ambiance is hotel sports bar. Heated patio with fire pits has potential.

Food was just ok. Steak was over priced and the garlic noodles is just spaghetti with butter and parm cheese. Martini was really good though. It was very loud and we had a hard time talking to each other.

Unfortunately the staff was clueless ingredients and allergens. They didn’t know what gluten was. The server recommended a dish that was fried in a shared frier or a vegetable poke dish. When I asked the manager, he said was just as clueless. The chef was able to make accommodations. Other than this the restaurant and service were great. If I didn’t have a food allergy I’d go back.

Atmosphere is okay (noisy inside but looks nice outside), staff was friendly but if you're going for the food, just don't--can't stress that enough. We went because the reviews sounded great and we were excited to try several items on the menu but the results were consistently disappointing: salad was bland, lobster was chewy and the soup was gloppy and super salty. The wine list was boring and none of the food tasted fresh despite a great list of ingredients. We didn't even stay for dessert--typically my favorite part. Sad experience and would not go there again.

Server was very pleasant and enthusiastic, although clearly not trained. Had to ask for appy plates; mixed up items on bills even though we provided info up front about how to divide the bills; brought inappropriate utensils for dessert. Wait staff clearly had a hard time hearing us, as did our small group. Perhaps some fabrics to absorb the sound would be helpful. The food was unique, well prepared and nicely presented. While we all agreed we'd probably try it again, each of us is not recommending to others 'til we see if our uneven experience was isolated or a pattern. With some changes noted above, it could be a B'ham go-to place!
