“Beer and wine pairing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2014 via mobile

Had to go back and get a picture of their beautiful presentations. Tried a beer versus wine pairing for different courses. Salad started us out,dungeness crab, slices of avocado highlighted with thin slices of daikon radish on a bed of thin seaweed. Soup followed, smoked black cod in a chowder. Next roasted pork belly on a coati polenta. Final part of the main course was duck confit . Desert was a rich chocolate torte.
This dinner showed us all the wonderful possibilities of a place we plan to frequent on a regular basis, this is a place bellingham has missed ever since the vines closed down.

“Quiet part of town for a great restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2014

We stopped here around noon on a grey Saturday. Nice bar with custom handmade touches to the tables, lights and shelves. Good background music to listen to and still allow a conversation. Nice selection of rotating beers some made by their brewery in Ferndale. We split a Rueben sandwich with fries and a duck gumbo stew. Sandwich was one of the best reubens we've had, didn't get soggy from the sauerkraut and the corn beef was thick cut and tasted like it was fresh out of the oven. Gumbo had a nice spice to it but wasn't something I'd order again. We plan on returning for breakfast, great selection of eggs benedict, corn beef hash and other interesting things to try. Friendly service.
