The hotel is very nice and I love the outside seating. Service is good and prices are fair. I do wish they had a better happy hour menu. Really miss the shrimp they used to have on their menu.

Great view of a beautiful sunset. Good wine list and some good seafood too, however the "medium" oysters were pretty small...made me wonder what the "small" would be Go on a Friday night for live piano!

I wanted to take this opportunity to tell you about the oysters we serve here, we currently source our fresh oysters from Taylor Ridge Shellfish farm, a local farm not more than half an hour away from the Lighthouse Bar and Grill. The medium sized oysters we serve... More

The wine list was great. The service was wonderful. The view was spectacular. The ambiance was perfect. We dined on some delicious oysters on the half shell, fresh clam chowder, and a yummy Caesar salad. We ate I the bar and they had piano entertainment that night. It was a perfect evening.

We had a nice dinner here, delivered by an exceptionally nice and attentive server. We shared a meal that was overpriced ... and a bit strange for seafood. They have a great view of the water and the location is spectacular!

Don't let the hoighty-toighty vibe fool you--this place is casual, comfortable, and has great happy hour cocktails/food prices to please any taste. I've brought my kids here and they were as happy as the adults. The view is stellar, and the wait staff will easily accommodate you if the patio is too hot/cold by turning on the patio heaters or...

We didn't stay there as they don't allow dogs in their rooms, but we did go there for a nice cocktail in the late afternoon. There was a bountiful Happy Hour menu with reasonable prices and a fun drink menu, too. The bartender was quite friendly and said she'd be glad to make a Mint Julep for me (it was... More

Happy hour to watch the sun start to set is the best time to go. The drinks are great, the oysters divine, and the staff are incredibly nice and accommodating. If you don't have your own balcony or boat on the water, you have to come here.

Our patio is located right on Bellingham bay so I have to agree with you, if you don’t have a boat or a balcony, it is the best view of the bay in town! We serve happy hour on the patio and in the lounge every day from 3pm-6pm and also a late night happy hour from 8pm-close. Sundays we... More

We went to the LHB & G for something light...and it was so fantastic I had to write a review. We had salads and salmon cakes. Let me tell you about the cakes. They literally melted in our mouths.

Thank you kindly for sharing your comments on our salmon cakes; they are definitely a favorite amongst the staff and our guests! One of the things that make our salmon cakes unique is that we serve them with a yellow curry aioli sauce which complements the salmon perfectly and adds a savory flavor to the dish.

Amazing oyster burger fried Ina lightly battered and spiced onion ring. Flavourful lemon vinegrette in an interesting-greens salad and a mousse to die for. Try the riesling. Mmm. Beautiful view of the water and sailboats! Well b back
