the service was lacking, the food not so great. We had the calamari appetizer, fish tacos and side salad. Calamari was way too salty. Fish tacos were way too spicy...even though they said they were blackened, we eat blackened anything....these were too hot.

The seafood chowder was excellent.... It was a beautiful bisque with clams in there shells, this was worth the wait!! I also enjoyed the Crab Open faced sandwich. My husband said the bloody Mary was excellent! The trains went by twice that was fun hear and see!!! We love, loved it...must try the chowder!!

Walk in customers for lunch. Promptly seated. Friendly and attentive service. Menu had a reasonable section. Food quality and quantity was excellent. Reasonable value and of course a great view. We would visit again.

Keenan's at the Pier is located inside Chrysalis Inn and Spa overlooking the beautiful Bellingham Bay. We got lucky to get a seating outside on the patio especially we did not call for reservation. It was a spontaneous decision to just go and walk in. We wondered how the train noise affects the dining experience. We simply took in the... More

I stopped for breakfast before loading up onto a 1/2 day cruise. Very clean, great service and yummy food. But the views make it worth it. Very resonable priced for the location.

Boy was I ever disappointed. Instead of sizable chunks of fresh crab meat and whole legs, all I got was shredded crab meat, certainly from some can or container. They somehow stir fried this shredded, minuscule bits or crab with something that was sour and served the entire mess open faced. The summer white sangria I ordered for $9 came... More

We had a lovely early dinner on the patio overlooking the wide expanse of the bay watching the tide come in and the sun sparkle off the water. We started with steamed clams, prepared well but be warned that there are some spicy red pepper flakes that you will want to rinse off if, like me, you are a little... More

Just had dinner at Keenan's. A special occasion dinner. My daughter ordered the fillet mignon cooked medium rare to rare. It came back clearly cooked "well'. To the waitresses credit, she recognized the over cooking, apologized and asked to take it away and replace it. What it was replaced with was even worse. I don't even know if it was... More

As the title suggests, I love well crafted beers! They have a selection of 4 rotating draught beers each week, all were excellent. Ambience in the restaurant is delightful, young well organised and knowledgable wait persons, take great care of you, the food was promptly served and we really enjoyed all of it. Clientele was mixed in age group and... More

The food was good here, and the chef actually cooked my steak to rare-medium rare. The sauce on it, although good, was a bit overpowering and drowned out the flavor of the meat. Next time I would request it to be placed on the side. The asparagus, perfectly cooked, and the mashed potatoes both had the same sauce on them,... More
