This was my first time to the Bellingham area, and we found the place by a Smartphone search.
The atmosphere is of course nautical themed, and OK. The restaurant and the men's bathroom was clean.
All of us ordered the Fish & Chips, and it definitely did not disappoint! One really neat menu feature is that you can choose how many pieces of fish you have, so I was finally able to order a portion that left me satisfied! IIRC, the others ordered four piece meals, and I had an eight piece. As it was, I had all eight and another one that my wife couldn't finish. The fish pieces were about the same size as the old McDonald's apple pies. The fries were good, and it was a reasonable portion. Service was good, the waitresses were friendly and efficient.
Where they fell down was on the crab cocktail and the onion rings: The wife didn't like the crab cocktail as the crab and the cocktail sauce were served separately, so it was more like crab and dipping sauce. The onion rings had a crunchy coating as opposed to a batter. This is subjective, as both of us like plain batter. All in all, we were happy with the place and would gladly go back, albeit adjust what we order accordingly.
