Great Dinner

We had a very comfortable table on the patio for dinner and enjoyed the ambiance and views. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. Would definitely come again when we are in WA.

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.

Wonderful views and a great level of service. There are great sunset views that most tables take full advantage of. The service is not formal, but it is attentive and knowledgable

We gave a negative review after a bad experience. We were invited back and were very pleasantly surprised, The food was excellent and the service was great. They had a new executive chef and that seems to have made a huge difference in quality. We will be back again as they are back on our places to go list.

This restaurant is closed Monday and Tuesdays for dinner so we decided to try breakfast on Wednesday before we left since we were late risers the other days. We were immediately greeted upon entering and seated right away. No table was without a view of the ocean.

Our family of four decided to eat out Christmas dinner at the hotel restaurant, our expectations were for a tasty meal given our prior lunch experience.

Beautiful view from a well decorated dining room inside the Hotel Bellwether. While the service was good and we enjoyed our omelettes each morning, the breakfast buffet was more limited than you will find in hotels of similar quality. Despite the limited buffet options, the ambiance and service made it a worthwhile experience.
