What a good seafood restaurant. The menus was great for seafood, not so much if you want meat. The location was amazing. It’s fright on the waterfront with plenty of covered decking.
The service was fast but not rushed. The hostess asked if we had any allergies when she seated us and the menu had lots of dietary choices.
There were no kids while we were there and the menu was definitely geared towards adults rather than families.
We will go again.

Sat down at a table by the window. A large party started to show up next to us. Our server was extremely gracious about moving us to a quieter location. Wonderful meal and a beautiful, unrushed sunset.

A great weather day, dined on the deck with a friend. Excellent Mai Tai’s. Both had fish tacos. I had the Ahi, my friend had the halibut. Both were very tasty.

Great views of the San Juan Islands behind the marina (sit indoors or out). Good food, great service, reasonable price given the ambiance. Suggest you call to reserve since Open Table showed that they were full when they were not.

It was nice to feel as close to 'normal' as in a very long time with crowd and seating at the Loft. We had a short wait even with a reservation but the hostesses were extremely friendly and helpful about it. Our table members had the Asian salad, Cajun Mac, and fish and chips and all were done as described and were good. A pleasant Friday dining spot. It is a great place to sit on the deck and enjoy the harbor as well.

Was looking for good fish and chips. It was great. So was duck wings and poutine with duck gravy. Tried Latitude but parking not good for handicap father in law. This was much easier to access.

What a great find! The Loft had delicious good and a great ambiance. The grilled tuna salad was fabulous. The fish and chips we’re also very good. They had three people trying to work the whole restaurant so the service was a bit slow but they were working hard. Wednesday wine night was a really good deal.

I got the cod fish and chips. My daughter got the fish tacos. The food was abundant and very nicely prepared. We also shared a side of mac and cheese which was very tasty but a small portion. It was in a small soup cup. We sat outside on a warm sunny day in October. We enjoyed the view of the boats moored there. It was lovely. We would recommend this restaurant.

Had the day off, weather was sunny so we decided to sit on a deck by the water and have lunch. The Loft was open, we made a reservation (good thing we did) as the people in line before us wanted to sit at our table. Our server, Antonia, appeared to be bartending as well. She was friendly and got our local brews out quickly. We had fish and chips and ahi tacos, both were great.

We enjoyed our lunch at The Loft very much. The service was just right and the view and ambience were excellent. There is outdoor seating, but the wind was cold that day so we ate inside with a marvelous view of the harbor. The avocado fries are over the top fabu, order them! All our meals were very good, the salmon cakes smaller than expected, but delicious, we live in Alaska and eat fresh seafood all the time so we can attest to the flavors of the great north west. I ordered the seafood chimichanga, but would not do that again, all the lovely seafood was drowned out by way too much herb cream cheese. That wouldn't stop us from going back, there was a lot on the menu that looked enticing.

I had a reservation the other night and we waited for almost 2 hours to be seated for and early reservation. Was very disappointed with the amount of time we had to wait. By the time we where about to leave to find another place to eat the host came out and told us our table was ready. No one else was waiting at the time.

We were seated in a nice booth on the upper level with a great view of the marina. As the sun began to set - the bright light was blinding to the two facing the west... and there was no window screen! The restaraunt was full, so all in the booths facing west just had to dawn sunglasses and keep our eyes down. Unfortunate.

All our meals were not great. The price was a little high considering the quality of the meal.
Also, once of our guests was ill from the food she ordered.

It has been awhile since we have had a group meal where everyone was dissatisfied.

I found the food and service ok, but not great. My fish and chips were a bit soggy. Our server didn’t write down our order, which is fine but then it came out wrong. Items tagged dairy free had dairy listed in them in the menu. Not much beyond salad for vegan or DF eaters. Bench and seats were very uncomfortable.

I imagine the views are great when the weather is nice. It was dark and rainy on our visit.
