“Great place to eat!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2013

We were looking for a great place to order seafood and found it! The service was wonderful, the salmon & prawns were amazing... I was in heaven, loved the chocolate drink with whipped cream vodka (dessert in a drink!). The veggies were done to perfection, great risotto, and I'd never had buffalo squid but it was so yummy! Our waiter was so informative, made great recommendations, and very honest... We forgot our wallet and went out for a walk on the pier and he ran us down to return it. Thanks so much John! If we're ever back in Bellingham we'll come for supper here for sure!

“HUGH Portions of good food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2012

We eat here often because our boat is moored nearby. We are never disappointed with the food or the service. We often split an order of fish and chips or a burger, and supplement with a salad. They have recently added gourmet hot dogs to the menu and have a different special dog every day. These dogs, like the burgers, are humongous. I ordered one for lunch and asked the waiter about adding fries, he said not to bother as the dog would be enough. He was right!

They also have a good happy hour every afternoon and all day on Sunday.

“GREAT FISH AND CHIPS”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2012

We ate here on the advice of my daughter, a WWU student. Five in our party, 3 had the fish and chips, one the clam strips and 1 the prawns. All three loved the fish and chips, clearly hand dipped and very fresh. I am a big eater and barely finished mine. You get 1 full filet, and 1 smaller piece and refillable fries. The tartar sauce was very good too. The prawns and clam strips were pronounced "good". The fish and chips are where it's at. The service was prompt and friendly, the view was beautiful. Will definitely return.
