My wife and I arrived in Bellingham for a 3-night stay in a rental that just happened to be across the street from Cliff House. We had planned to drive around to the harbor area but, with sunset approaching, we decided to take an easy stroll to this restaurant for being convenient and well-perched atop a hill. Since it was...

Nice view in the day but nothing to see at night - the inside of the restaurant is otherwise very dated and not well kept. The salad bar was pitiful and the food was cold and not very impressive, especially when compared to the cost. We went there for a milestone birthday, my dad's 75th and the entire experience was...

My husband had the seafood medley which was fresh and wonderful seafood. My daughter had the coconut prawns and I had the crab topped chicken!! All three were delicious. The desserts were divine...and the service was, as... More

This is one of my favorite places to visit. However, my friends chose this location to meet for a re-union of sorts because of the view and great food. We were a group of eight women who haven't seen each other in a few years and needless to say, we were laughing and having a great time. We were not... More

This was the second time we were there for dinner, and both times we were pleased with the experience. The food is great - and they have some excellent seafod dishes. The servers were friendly and knowledgeable. The only downside is you can't reserve window seats, it's first come first serve, so even though we had made reservations in advance,... More

We loved a range of delectable specials last Sunday at The Cliff House. The mojitos were so refreshing along with yummy coconut prawns and fish tacos enjoyed with a spectacular sunset. We'll be back!

We've been looking for an upscale restaurant in B'ham for a while. Visited the Cliff House last night with my wife, my daughter and her bf. I have to say pretty much everything was really good and the view was spectacular thanks to the exceptional weather this weekend. Each dish was very good, the only minor disappointment was they ran... More

This was our first visit to Cliff House, and we ate in the bar off the happy hour menu. Our wines and drinks were well-chosen and nicely prepared (the martini for my husband), and the whiskey crab soup, prawns, devils on horseback, Kuhuku prawns were great to savor and to share. Our server, Diane, was such a friendly, funny person,... More

We come here often and bring our many houseguests. The Cliff House NEVER disappoints.....most of the time we "graze" from the Happy Hour and Appetizer menus. The food is always delicious (try the Whiskey Crab Soup) and the service is consistently impeccable. Diane is the most stellar server we've seen anywhere: superior attention to detail; outstanding sense of humor; a... More
