“Great place to wait for our flight”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2014

We recently took a flight from Bellingham airport with a 3 hour wait. We were starving and wondered what would be on offer at this small airport. Not expecting much we were really quite surprised by what we found, Good service, decent food and a really good spot to while away the time till our flight.

“We just went out for a bite”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2013

After a movie we felt a bit hungry so we popped over to Scotty Brown's. We ordered:
THAI CHICKEN + RICE SOUP, but found it bland (won't do that again)
OMG BURGER, a skyscraper of a burger that was delicious but too tall to bite and had to be dissected and eaten with fork and knife.
SPICY CRISPY CHICKEN BURGER, incredible taste sensation that we will definitely try again.
SHRIMP + CHICKEN PAD THAI, and had to refuse it once we tasted it. TERRIBLY SALTY!!
COWBOY SALAD was just so-so (should have passed on that)
I'll give them credit for taking the Pad Thai off the bill ... classy. The drinks were cold and the service was quite adequate. I think it was our fault for ordering Thai food from a place called Scotty Brown's. We should have kept it to American cuisine.

we always look forward to Scotty Browns at the Bellingham airport prior to boarding, Prices for an airport restaurant are excellent, well trained staff, no waiting for meals or drinks

“Awesome Place to Hang Out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013

Great location in the airport at Bellingham. Perfect place to have a burger and beer, watch the game and pass the time until your flight departs. Excellent service, awesome food and drink and plenty of big screens to watch the game.

“BLI's airport restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

The new airport expansion has brought good things to the area, and the new Scotty Brown's airport restaurant is a very welcome addition for travelers. I passed through BLI at the end of September and had my first chance to try out our new restaurant. I wasn't disappointed in the least. We took the morning flight out on Horizon headed to San Antonio via Seattle and I wondered if the restaurant would even be open at that time in the morning knowing Bellingham as I do. It was not only open for business, it was jammed.

I found the seating to be a little tight, as we were taking a table next to the bar, in the bar portion of the restaurant where the aisle behind the bar is a little tight to say the least. Especially if you've got a carry on, and a back pack. Nonetheless, I really enjoyed the restaurant.

Breakfast was of traditional nature, but good, and the mimosas were flying from the bar, even at 8am. The restaurant also has a lunch and dinner menu, to complement the full service bar. The service from the staff is exceptional. Food came fast, as did the orange juice to accompany breakfast, and my coffee cup never saw an empty bottom. For a bacon (which I partake in about once a year), egg (which were cooked exactly as ordered), and muffin breakfast at an airport, it was pretty darn good.

The restaurant has an inviting decor, and a flat screen tv whichever direction you turn your head. The only downside to the airport addition is the rather high price, even for an airport venue. There is also a take away counter next to the entry to the restaurant. All things considered, next flight out of BLI, you'll probably find me nursing a martini there.
