We have dined for many yrs and very satisfied. We still find the Steak House near top of our fine dining choices. Loved our room. Nice decor.

Food was awesome and Jay are server is always the best. Would have given 5 stars on the food but they were out of the beef carpaccio so then I ordered the caprese salad and they had no basil, but it still was delicious!

Took my wife for her Birthday. It was our 5th or 6th visit. We live over 75 miles away, but it is worth the time and the drive. It is not cheap, but worth every penny. The food and service are terrific.

When I made the reservation I couldn’t get the time I wanted, when we got to the restaurant there was all kinds of open seating. If I had called the restaurant when it was open I wouldn’t have had a problem getting the time I wanted. After talking to them I understand that this is an ongoing problem with open table. I will try to avoid making my reservations through you in the future. Also it took 3 days to get a confirmation from you which was bothersome.

Girls weekend and the 4 of us enjoyed our dinner very much. Our server was informative, and friendly but could have been a little more attentive. We ordered their table side Cesar Salad and it did not disappoint, so so good! Steaks were cooked perfectly and the salmon was also very good! It is pricey, but when you receive wonderful service and your dinner is more of an experience rather than just a meal out, we did not mind paying a little more. I would recommend this place to friends.

The restaurant made us wait 15 min longer than our reservation, they said we had booked for two not three, which as we can see is incorrect, as well the steak and potatoe came out luke warm. For the cost to eat there the food should be presented at better temperature.

This was our first time and we were celebrating our 37th Anniversary so we booked into the hotel for the night and made reservation ahead for the steakhouse. Everything was fantastic, cooked perfectly (I'm a foodie so something always goes wrong) and we enjoyed everything except we ate too much (not their fault) and have a plan for next time, which will be soon.

This was an anniversary celebration. We started as a party of two but had sudden out of town guests. The restaurant happily accommodated us. Each course was very good. We were given a complimentary appetizer of crackers and a crab spread when we sat down. Then freshly baked bread was brought along with an appetizer of coquille st Jacque. Three different types of butter were brought with the bread. Two of us ordered the small filet, one the rib eye, and one the prime rib. Each entree was cooked perfectly. The side dishes were the Swedish potatoes and a baked potato. Portions were large and delicious.We also ordered two different types of mushrooms, and asparagus. Those sides were large and we had so much we took about half of it home. The presentation of everything was excellent. Our server was Jay. He was attentive and did not miss a thing. All in all, it was the best dinner we have had in a very long time. This is a restaurant we will return to often.

We dined last weekend with another couple to celebrate a birthday. Our initial impression was good....our service started off fine but through out our meal we had a very difficult time finding pur server when needed. We asked for horseradish numerous times and never received it. We waited (in my opinion) too long for our second bottle of wine.....as soon as we finished our meal my girlfriend became very ill and spent the remainder of the evening and most of the following day in our room. Overall - I would say I was disappointed given price of the food and reputation the restaurant had. I was hoping for a much better experience.

The Steakhouse is as good a most restaurants in the Metro area -- in fact very few "beat" this place. By FAR the BEST steaks in Bellingham -- especially if you know anything about steaks. Seafood is very good at The Steakhouse too, but come on -- these steaks are awesome. There are certainly things I've tried and don't like (not a fan of steak Diane, but never had it before), but yet those meals were quality. Sometimes trying new things doesn't pan out, other times you discover a new meal and something about yourself! My wife and I have visited The Steakhouse many times since it originally opened. NEVER disappointed with them, always a special time. There are certainly other "steakhouses" in Whatcom county, but NONE of them come close to The Steakhouse for experience, ambiance, service, and quality of food. Don't be fooled by the "other" steakhouses who claim some history of cooking steak -- some of who have recently closed their doors. Those other guys don't have the service, the quality of food, nor the portions. And OMG! The banana's Foster is absolutely heavenly! How can something with bananas taste sooooooo good??? If you disagree with anything I've said here, allow me to point out that the Outback is down in Burlington -- leave now and you might make it before closing. However, for those serious about the best experience north of Seattle, visit The Steakhouse. (Yes, it's in a casino. So what. Get over it. Thank goodness it offers a steady stream of customers, I'd hate to lose this gem. Remember the Cliff house? Northwest Prime Rib? The Marina? Pacific Café? Nimbus? Bluewater Bistro? The Calumet? The KEG? Stars?) It ain't cheap, but the guy at the table next to you isn't dropping F-bombs and on his 2nd pitcher of beer, and the steaks are cooked to the temperature you order it, and the servers truly deliver. (I'm pointing at you BlackForest in Bellingham who just closed down...)

Awesome steaks. Very good food at very good prices. A bit of a bonus that we could enjoy a cigar later just beside the bar. A shame that they closed the cigar room but a bonus that we can still have a cigar there. Will definitely return for another great meal.

Our server Keith was fabulous. Very polite young man . Had reservations, got seated right away .The only thing we would have changed was being sat in the center at a table . Would have rather had the privacy of a booth. Not the commotion of the waiters & kitchen traffic .The meal was a 5 star rating . Last time we were there a gentleman was on his phone ,checking his emails . The screen was very bright & ruined the romance of the evening.

Great food, service and ambiance. I would recommend they eliminate the huge silver covers on a 7 once filet, and plate the whole meal together, our potato was separate. I also think they need to include a vegetable with steak orders!

WE have dined at the SH 5 or 6 times and have always been incredibly impressed, however this last visit was so very disappointing, this was one of our favourite restaurants and found it compared to any we have e ver dined at In Canada or the United States, including Vegas, this is the only restaurant my husband would go to for fine dining, this last visit changed that, The service was unbelievably slow, we were not informed about the special, my husband had almost finished his martini by the time I got my drink which was 1/2 after we were seated, the broccoli was cold, and by the time it was corrected I had finished my meal, we were presented with the bill and not asked if we would like coffee or dessert, we were conveniences that that was our last visit but on reflection agreed that everyone deserves a second chance
THe wine steward is incredibly knowledgable and always so personable, she is a delight and a true professional. A wee bit of constructive criticism, the maitre d walks around like someone just died, more like a funeral director , I would suggest that a smile goes along way, while still still remaining professional. I felt guilty about leaving such a horrible tip but I do not believe in rewarding bad service, Thank you for taking the time to ask. the food remains a 5
