We visited the Oyster Bar for our Thanksgiving meal. One person ordered the turkey, the 2 others had differing entrees. All appetizers and entrees were delicious. We also liked the festive autumn lighting and the fire. The magnificent trees outside added to our pleasure.

The Oyster Bar has been a high end, fine dining venue for at least 40 years. The service has never been the same since their long time waiter, John , retired, but it is still some of the best in the area. the food is eclectic and very well done and the view sitting on a cliff overlooking Samish Bay...

Went to this restaurant on a sunny early winter day. It's view is absolutely perfect. As the dinning room is relatively small, it gives you a very cosy feeling especially on a rather chilly day. The food is good, and the pricing is comparable to other restaurants. I thoroughly enjoyed my meal especially how fresh the oysters were. Definitely will... More

It is not my habit to enter a restaurant moments after it formally opens the door for its evening dinner menu, but, I had a business meeting early evening, and decided that dinner about 4 pm would be just fine. The Oyster Bar where I've eaten before was ready for customers. I was the first customer on this very windy,... More

This weekend my spouse and I decided to drive up to Bow, Washington, and dine at THE OYSTER BAR on CHUCKANUT DRIVE--Highway 11. We reserved a table for four (always a good idea at this establishment!) with a window view. We were treated to an excellent dinner with an absolutely beautiful sunset over the Puget Sound. Three of us ordered... More

My friends knew they were on to a winner when I went rather quiet when my starter arrived and would not share it with anyone. I am very serious about food and when I saw one of the starters of the day was a tomato gazpacho I went for it. (I often go for the specials of the day as... More

My son and I had dinner last night at the Oyster Bar. Neither of us had eaten there before (my son recently moved to Bellingham and I was visiting from upstate New York). We relied heavily on the recommendations of our server, John, who shared that he has worked at the restaurant for over 30 years and loves the food... More

This is a wonderful restaurant. The servers were really professional, friendly, and helpful. The food was excellent. And the oysters! They were among the best I've had in my life. On top of that, the drive there is very scenic, and the setting--over the bay--is incomparable.

Mark was not only an awesome server but entertaining as well. Food was terrific! Huckleberry tart was to die for! Seafood salad as well. Beautiful, serene, great food and fun! What more could you want?
