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

What a nice place! Large, fresh, delectable selection of oysters from Washington, Oregon, California, and elsewhere. As entrees, the four of us had meals of fresh fish, crab, and crab cakes--all prepared very well and presented by friendly and knowledgeable servers. The wine list is also wonderful. They even had King Estate Pinot Gris by the glass, something you don't... More

We saw this restaurant on a previous visit to Bellingham when we drove by this place on Chuckanut Drive's scenic route. The restaurant was closed because it was early in the day. We promised ourselves we would come back for dinner. We weren't disappointed and the restaurant lived up to our expectations in every way. The clam chowder was to... More

We had dinner here due to the many recommendations and were not disappointed. We came on a Tuesday evening so were able to get right in and were seated at a window with an amazing view of the water. My wife had the lobster mac and cheese, which had a nice balance of lobster and cheese, not overly rich. I... More

Stopped here for an afternoon snack. Beautiful restaurant and great service. Mark was our waiter and he was personable, knowledgeable, and made everything sound awesome. We had a dozen fresh oysters with paired wine and beer that he recommended. Our table outside on the deck was beyond beautiful. The oysters were probably the best I have ever had. Hope to... More

After have driven by this place countless times, we stopped here for a late grazing lunch on a beautiful Sumner Saturday on our way to taste wines in Woodinville. Luckily their outdoor seating was open so we sat outside and enjoyed the view over the water from their quiet, treehouse-like deck. Given the name, the menu is obviously seafood oriented,... More

I went to Bellingham on business and we just happened to stop by the Oyster Bar. Our waiter was Mark who was the best waiter I've ever had. He was so knowledgable and helpful that we just let him order everything for us. It was so perfect that we went back the following day. The view is also amazing. I... More

Had the chance to eat here and it was delicious! My favorite thing by far was the Gravlax. It was melt in your mouth salmon with the perfect amount of bite in the goat cheese. I keep thinking about it and wishing I was there to have another order of it. All of us enjoyed our lunches immensely and the... More

First time visiting this restaurant on the scenic Chuckanut drive and we were not disappointed. The food was excellent with unexpected extras that reflect the skill of the chefs- rhubarb and strawberry sorbet with sparkling wine as a pallet cleanser, a fully risen individual mini soufflé with the main course. Crab stack, trout and pavlova were perfectly prepared and all... More
