“Copper River salmon in season”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2014 via mobile

The colour of this fish is amazing, perfectly presented atop mashed potatoes with bright green veg. My wife loved it, while I opted for shellfish in linguini, equally enjoyable. We have enjoyed many meals here, and will certainly be back again. Restaurant is well designed with tables on risers so everyone can enjoy the marina view. Gorgeous sunset as we ended with in season rhubarb cheesecake.

“Excellant Restaurant on the Water.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2014

My wife and I stopped here for an early dinner. We were in Bellingham for a few days. The restaurant is right on the water by the harbor. Very nice view. We had the fresh Copper River Red Salmon. My wife had it on a salad and I as a dinner. Very fresh, very tasty. I had to try their Rhubarb Strawberry Margarita. Nice combination! We will definitely go back.

“CONSISTENTLY AWESOME”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

This place is in my constant list every time I am in Bellingham. Dinner Main dishes may change... Although they are always very good. However, the one item I must always get - SPINACH SALAD... Dressing - to die for. And what it makes this salad different from all other ones? BERRIES - Each month they use different berries that they top their spinach salad with... My absolute favorite - huckleberry!

“Excellent food and oh-so-fresh!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2014

We've been to Anthony's Homeport numerous times and have never been disappointed. The food is always good and the seafood is super fresh! I love how they do specials on whatever seafood is "in season" - like their Copper River Salmon event in late spring. The views of Squalicum Harbor are close and lovely. While they specialize in seafood, they also do some pasta dishes and steaks also. It's all good. A great place for a special meal.

“Reliably good food in a lovely port-side setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

Anthony's Homeport is one of the Anthony's chain in Western Washington. Its standards are reliably high, food is always good, service is professional, and the ambiance is excellent, with stunning views of Squalicum Harbor, Bellingham Bay, and the San Juan Islands. Prices are high-moderate, but there is a weekday selection of "Sunset Dinners" served until 6:00PM that are complete 3-course meals at better prices. While there is no dress code, most diners choose "dressy casual." The Homeport is usually quite crowded in the evenings: reservations are highly recommended (and sometimes vital). Lunch time is less crowded; reservations are not usually necessary.

Anthony's "sister restaurant" nearby, the Hearthfire Grill, is a little smaller, a little more "mod" in setting, usually noisier, and boasts a more lively bar, complete with excellent "bar food" choices, big screen TVs showing live sports events, and an upscale happy hour. The menu, service, and setting are similar to the Homeport, but all are a bit more "West Coast" chic. There is also an outdoor dining area for those (rare) sunny days and balmy evenings. Prices are also similar. Reservations are even more vital than at the Homeport.

Either restaurant is a fine choice for a dinner party, date, or celebration. Expect dinner, with beverages, to cost around $22-25/person for the "Sunset Dinner"; a complete dinner off the regular menu, with beverage, will run about $28-35/person.
