SPECTACULAR! OCEAN VIEW

The patio is so enjoyable watching the panoramic ocean view. The servers are knowledgeable, professional and friendly. We found the food to be good and reasonable prices. The atmosphere lends to feeling as if you were on a nice vacation.

The patio has a lovely view. BUT..... took an hour to get Eggs Benedict. The waitstaff was pretty much absent. After 45 minutes (and others seated after us getting their orders) we mentioned our breakfast hadn't appeared. From the look of surprise, my guess is the order didn't get put in. The food was OK (just) and the service terrible.... More

It was perfect...beautiful location on the water and the food was delicious. The set up was so nice and homey feeling. We were in a smaller room and it felt like we were in a... More

I have only tried breakfast here several months ago and I was not terribly surprised to find that it was fairly typical of most breakfast offerings. The service was good, the view is good, and the atmosphere is very pleasant; however, as in most restaurants today, the oils used in cooking seem to be very greasy and smelly, the eggs... More

This is a place you must visit when you are down to Bellingham, WA. We had a table near the fire and enjoyed the sunset view. The waitresses were friendly and attentive. We will come back again if we have chance again in the future.

We enjoyed the meal, the professional and friendly service and of course the view and the location. The grilled oysters were really unique for me and the main seefood courses great also.
