I loved the welcoming we received and us being able to bring our pet into the outside dining area. The owner or manager even came out during our stay to see our beautiful dog and talk with us for awhile. The food was delicious; we had Filet Mignons and opted to top mine with Crab Oscar and Bernaise sauce. Yum!... More

Went to a memorial dinner for a family member here. He had loved the place. Some folks attended without RVSP so our hostess and the small restaurant dealt with an unexpected extra 15 people! The food was still delicious, although understandably a bit slow. I was with a small group tucked up into the "Chuchill Room" which was intimate and... More

My New York peppercorn encrusted steak was perfectly done. Great meat, perfectly cooked, and the pepper corn crust delicious. My wife's filet was well below expectations. Perfectly cooked, but the meat quality was poor: tough, gristly prison meat. I would be up for trying again on another day. If I can get my wife to go back ... The service... More

We were visiting colleges in the Northwest and decided to spend a few nights in the quaint Fairhaven village. Late one night, we stumbled upon Dirty Dan's. It was close to closing time but welcomed us in. We loved the décor which was cozy. We had an excellent bottle of wine which the owner recommended and corked for us. The... More

My husband introduced me to this place a few years back, now almost every time we are traveling between Vancouver and Seattle we make it a point to stop and have dinner. We have yet to be disappointed with an experience at Dirty Dans. The meats are always cooked just right and the service is pretty on point for a... More

This restaurant is in a great part of Bellingham, on the south side in historic Fairhaven. The food was good, not great, and the prices seemed high. The staff was excellent, we got great service and there was lots of free parking in the area.

I was really frustrated with the management. We went to have a drink & were refused beverages...although we were completely sober. The owner couldn't even come up to us herself. She send the poor bartender over to do her dirty work. I will never go back again.

We thoroughly enjoyed our evening with great prime rib, baked potato with all the fixings, grilled asparagus to die for along with reasonably priced wine and a wonderful host, Kathy. Our first time in Fairhaven (staying at the Chrysalis Inn) and we were fortunate to find this 'gem' of a restaurant. If you are looking for a real treat with... More

Quite possibly the best steak dinner I have ever had. Definitely the best tips I have ever had. The filet tips are simply amazing. It was like they had reached into my mind and extracted the perfect flavor combinations! The berry pie for dessert rivaled (at worst) the best pies I have had in the Mid-West. Probably overtopped them! Again,... More
