We have dined here at least 100 times. We find the cuisine and the view to be delightful almost always. The exception was our last visit. I ordered my favorite, the seafood salad. Preparation time was quite lengthy. Upon arrival, I couldn't help but notice the rather elderly lettuce, not the crisp lettuce usually offered and the paucity of crab... More

Enjoyed scrumptious, fresh, creamy oysters with five friends by accident - as our one friend mistakenly thought that this was the "local oyster bar". Really expensive but the oysters were so incredible that they were worth every dollar. We had a selection of 7 different oysters - each one unique and a wonderful culinary delight. The wine selection was fantastic... More

Beautiful restaurant on Chuckanut Drive. The food id very good, the service efficient and friendly and the views incredible. We stopped for a late lunch that was a bit on the expensive side, but the whole experience was worth it. The food: roasted halibut chowder (excellent), mussels (very good), oysters (average), and gravlax (excellent)

Beautiful/amazing location for an anniversary lunch. Chuckanut drive is beautiful for a leisurly drive and the restaurant- service & food was perfect. Very romantic as all the tables look out onto the ocean. Menu has something for everyone from delicious fish and chips to stuffed fish specials.

Romantic, quaint, gourmet! All of this and more. Incredible view from all tables but if the weather is good, do sit outside. Our waiter Ken was friendly and humorous and made us feel comfortable. The food was outstanding, worth a five star rating. All four adults had different dishes and appies and couldn't believe how exceptional everything was. The wine... More

Very special place on Chuckanut Drive over looking the water. Food and wine was very good. Great service! Pricey but given the location, a must do. Waiter was very personable and classy. Would definitely come again. Get a table outside.

Awesome dinner with old friends who are visiting the NW for the first time. Amazing sunset, beautiful views of the San Juan Islands, perfect weather to sit outside on the deck. We all had halibut which was great. Our friends from the Texas Gulf chuckled at oysters the size of dimes. I am not a big oyster fan, so I... More

We couldn't afford to eat here to be honest, so we had an assortment of Oysters and drinks. I must admit the Oysters were just delicious! we got a few dozen assorted and they were wonderful. If I had the money I would go here to eat.

This is not the cheapest place to eat in/around Bellingham, but it is indeed THE best. The service is top notch, with personal attention, knowledge about bar/wine and menu items, and the time to enjoy the meal and the stellar, breathtaking view. Eat outside if you can, but indoors is also quite beautiful with the wood interior and cozy atmosphere.... More

We had not been here for quite a few years and decided to make the trip down from Vancouver on a beautiful summer day. We were not dissapointed. This restaurant has a magnificent view of the islands, and is a peaceful setting for any occasion. The wait staff were very accomodating, welcoming, and provided outstanding service. As for the meal,... More
