“A welcome new addition to Bellingham dining options”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

Our party of four had a splendid dinner here. Despite a busy Saturday evening crowd, the servers and the chef were attentive, friendly, and eager to please.

Salads were quite large and clearly very fresh from the garden; the accompanying strawberries or candied walnuts and warm goat cheese were terrific accents. Sockeye salmon and scallops were perfectly cooked and presented well on spring risotto or on a generous bed of green vegetables: broccolini, asparagus and cauliflower. The Thai seafood stew had a deep rich flavor with several plump mussels and clams, but not with much fish; served with white rice, it was still quite filling. Creme brules were perfectly cooked: not too sweet and with a pleasant ginger flavor.

A delightful meal in beautiful setting overlooking the sparkllng water of the bay. We look forward to future visits to Keenan's.

“Delicious Dinner!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

My husband and I just had the most delicious dinner at Keenan's! The food is healthy, local and quality. We both had salmon, perfectly cooked. Our salads were unique and fresh. The fried goat cheese on the green salad melted in your mouth! The desserts are made in house.
Our waitress was attentive, friendly, and sweet.
The only two negatives are: its pricey. And the restaurant was freezing cold.
Make a reservation.

“Great breakfast; good prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

We stayed at the Chrysalis Hotel and thought the restaurant would be a fancy fared overpriced place to eat but instead the food was in-season, local and fresh. We had simple bacon and eggs as well as french toast. We were surprised at the value of the meals being quite affordable and comparable to any local restaurant. The view is a fabulous and service was excellent. We will definitely come back here to eat again.

“Delightful setting, excellent food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

I went with four other friends --- had outstanding steelhead trout (the fish special that day) but all of us were really pleased with the meal and the overall experience. The manager, the chef and the wait staff all stopped by to be sure we were enjoying ourselves. Reservatoins a "must" at this increasingly popular place. The view of Bellingham Bay and the islands is unobstructed and just adds to the experience.
