    Good beer selection, Philly dip very good, kid’s portions kind of small though. Old fashioned was very good.

    The food had too much salt and sauce and was horrible! I had a Thai salad and I couldn’t even eat two bites, I had to send it back. Then I ordered a chicken burger and it was fried but no flavour on the chicken and buns had way too much grainy Dijon. Normally, I’m not picky, but would not go back.

    Waited 10 minutes for the hostess to come to seat us (no one else was in line). 1st table had old food all over under it, moved to another table, still dirty floor but better. Waited over 10 minutes and no staff came (but a few passed us by) so we left and went to Nikki’s Bella Marina and had a much better experience. We won’t ever be back! Horrible 1st (and only) impression . For the high prices of the food (no beverages were listed on the menu) the service and cleanliness were completely unacceptable. Great views if not blinded by sunlight, but that’s the only positive we saw.

    We were really disappointed with The Loft. The location and marina view are very nice, and the service from our waitress was good, but the food was low quality and portions were small. I had a Caesar salad with halibut - the salad was surprisingly small for an entree, and the halibut pieces were also far too small and overcooked. My partner had an Ahi tuna salad - the tuna itself was fine but the salad had awful tomatoes and cucumber that you'd expect in a grocery store in the middle of winter - not when those items are in-season (this was the start of September) and should be sourced locally and be of high quality. Finally, the other people with us had the fish & chips - I tried one of the chips and it had a nearly-burnt taste, probably from using the oil in the fryer too long. We would not go back here again and don't recommend you do, either.

    Exceptional experience and service. Great bar and food. The loft burger is one of the better burgers I have had. The pink lemonade with raspberry vodka is one of the better mixed drinks l have had, this year. Enjoyed the view of Bellingham Bay. I am looking forward to returning to the Loft.

    I'd give the food 5 stars except it arrived lukewarm. Not sure if servers were too busy to deliver it promptly or if it left the kitchen cold. The presentation and quality were excellent, but some components of our appetizer and entree weren't even warm, much less hot.

    The service, food, and ambiance was excellent. There was 4 in our group and none of us was ever asked before if there was a food allergy. It was appreciated. The fault was lack of signage which made finding the restaurant difficult.

    I will not be returning to a restaurant who charges $1.25 for each little cup of tarter sauce or ranch, and doesn’t tell you! I had over $10 in condiments. If waitress would have explained they charged for condiments it would have been nice. Food was expensive and just ok. I ordered scallop salad and it came with 3 small scallops on top for $23 and too much dressing. Philly sandwich was weird. Waitress could have been more attentive.
