Good Food, Wonderful View of the Harbor and Boats

This is our third time coming here - we stop each year on our annual trip to Canada. Most tables have a window out to the water. There also is a nice patio with heat lamps for outdoor drinks/dining. We've had several types of seafood here, all have been good. The atmosphere is fairly quiet and... read more

Went here to try the Delille wine tasting. Menu was impressive paired with good wine. Oyster (one) appetizer was delicious. Salad was ok. Food was pretty but serving albacore tuna well done is just not right. The dinner was pricy (Delille wine is expensive) and I didn't think the meal matched my expectations. I was thinking of going to a... More

Looking at this place online I was expecting a high quality dinner. I knew it was going to be pricey, but we were looking for a romantic date spot. Walking in the ambiance was great and I thought we had found exactly what we wanted, instead as soon we walked up to the hostess stand I was immediately disappointed. The... More

We just spent four days at The Bellwether and had a wonderful time. We loved the Christmas Buffet (you need to make reservations in advance) at the Lighthouse but we also just loved sitting in the quiet, cozy bar in the evening for a light meal and a drink. The service was excellent. By Day Three we were treated like... More

I couldn't ask for anything more for a special meal. By the fireside, no less. Wine list was extensive and I was able to taste some of the offerings before choosing one.

Been many times for breakfast,lunch,dinner. Past year, focus on service and food quality is excellent. Dinner Filet prepared to perfection. Salmon mouthwatering. Salads and desserts creative touch. Breakfast eggs,french toast, potatoes but no pancakes. Still wonderful presentation (see photo). Service by Trista M outstanding.

We came here during a slow time in Bellingham expecting what one expects when a hotel is slow: cost-cuts like reduced service staff... Not here! Our dinner experience was great! The service was quick and courteous, especially with us as we did not make reservations. Our food was excellent and the ambience was that of what one would expect in... More

The hotel, the setting, and the Lighthouse Bar & Grill outdoor terrace reminded me of she splendor of the old time past. The late-afternoon happy hour, affordable bar selections and live music was a modern rendition of old-times-gone by! A perfect way to enjoy a happy hour with four-star snack selections. I can't think of a better place in Bellingham... More

Recently had opportunity to dine at this fabulous establishment. The service was prompt, entertaining and yet very professional. Alison should be requested by everyone. The food was absolutely delicious. No one in our party of 8 had any complaints. Both the Chef and the manger took time to visit our table which was quite impressive. I highly recommend this restaurant... More
