This was my first time to the Bellingham area, and we found the place by a Smartphone search. The atmosphere is of course nautical themed, and OK. The restaurant and the men's bathroom was clean. All of us ordered the Fish & Chips, and it definitely did not disappoint! One really neat menu feature is that you can choose how... More

I have been a semi-regular at both old and new building for over 40 years. The seafood is outstanding, the servers have always been top of the line, anticipating your requirements. I recommend it and will probably be going for another 40 !

This used to be a great fish place. Once they moved to their new setting they went down hill fast. Service is only fair, food is generally over cooked, dry and tasteless.

I ordered the fish and chips plate and it was obviously not cooked right. The fish was soggy and dripping with grease. Don't think I will ever try again.

I loved the old Shack, very fond memories there as a kid, the fresh market and the restaurant. it was a busy place. fastforward 20ish years and it was reimagined, it's prettier, probably more hygenic, but it lacks the heart it had - and the food is meh.

the new one downtown is not nearly as fun as the old one was, great shrimp! I had a neighbor who loved it so much she took antihistamine before she ate it since she was allergic!

The fish and chips are passable, the chowders are good, but generally the others items are cardboard tasting frozen seafood items quickly fried. We have been there several times, but will probably not return.

We love the chowders! Fish'n'chips & shrimp are yummy! It's got a family feel and we can get in and out or stay & visit.
