The current owners have magically transformed this to one very fine restaurant. On Valentines Day my husband had the steak and I the outstanding duck on wild rice cooked polenta style. We sat near the corner window overlooking the wooded creek scene far below. Spectacular! Everything was top notch. We left oohing and aahing.

Please go the extra mile down Chuckanut Drive from Fairhaven (Bellingham) or come up from the South on I-5 and get off at the Chuckanut Drive exit for a beautiful drive up to the Oyster Creek Inn, not to be confused with the Oyster Bar less than a mile away...which is also great. I happen to like the casual ambiance... More

We have been often and will plan a trip just for the food. The drive from Vancouver Island, the ferrry are all worth it for the fantastic meals. Lots of terrific options from lunch to dinners. It is the perfect topping to a beautiful drive.

By far one of the best restaurants in Washington. Every thing is made to order from locally sourced seafood, produce etc. The pan fried oysters are divine. Perfect batter temperature. We also had the escargot which were done magnificently. Wonderful flavour, lots of garlic. Lick the dish clean with the bread. For our main we had scallops. Did I mention... More

My wife and I wanted to take some guests to a nice lunch and show off beautiful Chuckanut drive. We originally were heading to the oyster bar just south of here but their snooty attitude and overpriced fare drove us off. We thought we would give Oyster Creek Inn a tty and boy are we happy we did. The service... More

My 2 friends & I stopped for lunch while on our way to Bellingham. We each ordered something different & there was nothing left on our plates when we finished. Everything was very good. Our one complaint was that it took an hour from arrival until we received our food. The restaurant was not very busy so it may have... More

The drive along Chuckanut Drive alone is worth the trip. This restaurant has it Ll, a great location, beautiful scenery and wonderful food. The warm seafood salad is outstanding. Obviously, the key to their success is the locally sourced produce and seafood. The waiter was very attentive and most friendly. There is an excellent wine list with a wide range... More
