We've had a long term connection to the original Shrimp Shack and then this one on Cornwall Avenue. This is the place we compared other F&C places to. At our last visit, we found they had closed at the end of May. We'll miss them.

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...More

This used to be a great fish place. Once they moved to their new setting they went down hill fast. Service is only fair, food is generally over cooked, dry and tasteless.

The fish and chips are passable, the chowders are good, but generally the others items are cardboard tasting frozen seafood items quickly fried. We have been there several times, but will probably not return.
