This is a beautiful restaurant to dine in. They could use a little bit better signage when first walking in. The ambience was gorgeous, as we were seated right next to the window and could watch the sunset.
We ordered cocktails, appetizers, and of course dinner. We also received bread and specialty butter while we waited.
The only “complaint“ that I would give is the cocktail. I ordered a standard mai tai. Nothing special about it. And there was a distinct lack of education in creating a mai tai. I ordered three of them just to see if there was any changes, and sad to say there was not. They could definitely send their bartender to mixology school. For a high-end restaurant, one expects a higher quality mixed drink.
We were well cared for and the customer service was outstanding!
We were able to eat at a leisurely pace, and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
I was impressed with my dinner at Keenan's yesterday, which was the first time I've eaten there. The scallops were fabulous, as was the flourless chocolate torte. The Northwest Garden Salad was original, tasty, and very fresh. Everything was prepared and plated perfectly--a feast for the eyes as well as the stomach. Special callout to my excellent waiter, Grant, though all of the staff were friendly and efficient. The view can't be beat. We will be back many times!
Excellent service, amazing view, great food! Will definitely be back!
Our waitress was wonderful and the food was amazing!!!
Wonderful return to dining. No rush and nice and quiet
Great environment, the two entrees we ordered (new york steak and ribeye steak) seemed a little underwhelming for price point. Would absolutely go back for drinks and appetizers but skip dinner.
Great service, food and view - I would recommend it for the beautiful view alone.
It is heavenly to sit on the covered deck with heaters, dividers between tables, and the most wonderful view. Servers know the right balance of being attentive to diners' needs while also staying allowing diners privacy and time to enjoy the meal and each other.
Wonderful service and the food was good but not great. I will come back as there were other things on the menu that sound good. I hope they’re as good as they sound.
A very enjoyable experience. Lovely view of the bay and comfortable seats
Breakfast: needs more interesting choices
We enjoyed Keenan's. It's a small restaurant with a limited menu but the food was good and the service was great. Very good for a hotel restaurant.
Lovely dining experience with outside dining. The setting was beautiful and service was great!! Felt very comfortable with covid precautions...thanks so much!
Had a delicious dinner at Keenan’s for our anniversary. Service was attentive and friendly. Food was gourmet and fresh, especially the ono. The chowder and salad were also wonderful and the flourless chocolate torte amazing. A couple of trains passed by, but we didn’t mind them. The patio dining was separated by plexiglass walls for COVID and the heater did a good job on a cool day.
Had the ahi tuna and the crab cakes. It was some of the best ahi I have ever had. Very fresh and not overcooked. The crab cakes were wonderful.
Sitting on the heated patio was wonderful. Server was there when needed, but let us have our time to decide and chat. No pressure to hurry.
Great food service and view. It was our first time and we’d def go back
Positively delightful in every aspect. This was our first time dining there since moving to Bellingham last summer. It exceeded our expectations. Thank you.
Excellent lunch on the deck, well-protected from other patrons, and well-timed service. Their blackened fish tacos are terrific and plenty of food for lunch or dinner. Thin French fries also just crispy enough. Favorite go-to spot on nice or even mezzo days for the view.
The food and service were excellent. The only thing that would have made the experience better would have been to not be seated directly across from the kitchen with its perfectly understandable high level of noise and activity.
The food is actually worth the price ! Each plate I got did not disappoint and it tasted delicious. And with a view of the ocean! Totally recommend this place! Our waitress was very nice as well and made our first time their very enjoyable
The best Eggs Benedict I've eaten in years. The coffee was strong, hot, and freshly brewed. We'll be back!
Great place for breakfast if staying at the hotel or if you are looking for a yummy place to go.
The food at Keenan's was amazing! You could order almost anything and it will be delicious. I had the sockeye with pesto risotto and it was phenomenal, fresh, and yummy. My mother had the lamb chops with mint chutney, it was tender and sweet. We finished it off with the Creme Brulee which was sweet, but not too sweet. Overall, a wonderful experience. The coffee was the only thing lacking. It was a bit weak.
The lamb chops were well seasoned but a little tougher than we would have expected. Everything else was excellent.
The halibut was tremendously overcooked and very dry. The other three entrees at our table were just fine just very disappointed in the way that halibut was prepared. Our server was excellent and a fantastic view of the water.
The salads were fresh and had the right amount of dressings. The kitchen was slow.
All during the winter of the pandemic, I was missing going out to Keenan's. Finally on Mother's Day I got my wish and it was as good as I remembered. Yum!
Went for Mother’s Day and loved the experience. Beautiful view on the patio; didn’t get cold because of the heaters and blankets provided by the staff. Our waitress made excellent recommendations and all of the food was delicious.
The poor service distracted from the great food. Our waitress seemed to have a chip on her shoulder and went out of her way to make rude comments a few times. Pretty bizarre.
Excellent food, as always -- Keenan's doesn't ever disappoint! Thank you for the lovely environment, friendly service and exceptional food!
We went to Keenan's at the Pier for a birthday and our first foray after we were fully vaccinated. It was indeed very special; the food, the view and the service was exceptional. We will definitely be coming back for more!
I made the reservation for a birthday luncheon several days prior to the date. Since the reason for lunch was noted on the form I thought we would be seated at a nice table. Instead we were seated in the far corner and the south view was stacked extra tubs and carts stored on the deck. It was a lovely day but we could see very little of a water view. The service and food were good.
Amazing staff and view and menu! Everything was great!
Always have a delicious meal and great service. Glad we had reservations, it was busy.
Enjoyed COVID safe dining on the deck overlooking the bay. Heat lamps made it comfortable. Partitions separated us from other diners. Very enjoyable experience for the first time at a restaurant in a long time.
Keenans is my regular Sunday morning stop for a great breakfast.
