Little gem in Agate Bay

What a gem hidden off in a land far, far away. Great service & interesting, unique menu. The shrimp & grits is the best I've had away from the Georgia/South Carolina coast. And the lamb "lollipops" finally gave be license to gnaw tasty meat off the bone. I'll be back next time I'm in B'ham.

Agate Bay hides this gem of a spot to eat. We enjoy it for breakfast on the weekends or evening dinners. Great for a date or a group. They fill growlers too. Take a walk at North Lake Whatcom trail, then have a great meal. The shrimp and grits are a favorite. Sit in front of a Wood Stone oven... More

Made reservation for 6:00pm, arrived at 5:55, hostess couldn't find reservation, it was in the book for the next day, (a couple who came in shortly after us also had made a reservation that morning which was screwed up) waited 15 minutes and she found a table in the bar section. She seated us and we waited 10 minutes for... More

Good food in an odd location. It's pretty much all by itself a long way out on the north shore of Lake Whatcom. Good value for the price. Not cheap, but the quality of the food justifies the price.

This is a lovely place near Lake Whatcom. We’ve eaten outside on the patio before, but this time, since the weather was cool, we ate inside. Though the entrée menu is not that extensive, it was hard to choose what to order. The ingredients they use are fresh and creative—and locally sourced, organic and free-range where possible. Last time I... More

My family lives in Bellingham and this is one of their favorite spots which they treated me to tonight for my first time. The milk braised pork was something of legends. Unique, fresh ingredients, melt in your mouth delicious, and healthy. We'll absolutely be back.

A bit pricey for it's setting, but the food is high quality. They could use some curtains or something to help curb the echo chamber effect in the dining areas.

A little bit of a drive out, but we started our Saturday early & enjoyed the pretty drive around the lake to find this place and have a nice breakfast. I think we arrived just after they opened. The ratings were good & after our visit I would say the definitely deserve it. The service was friendly & made you... More

Intimate, bistro dining. A birthday dinner for three. The halibut was exceptional. The bite of shrimp and grits from my husband's choice, may have changed my mind about grits, delicious. Service was very good. A nice range of menu choices, but limited enough to give special attention to each diner. Funky building, beautifully remodeled.

One of our favorite places in Whatcom County. Have been a number of times food and service is always good. Well worth the drive.
