We dropped in on the spur of the moment while on a day trip out of Seattle. What a treat! We were graciously welcomed. Oysters were excellent. Service was wonderful. The ambiance with view looking out over Puget Sound is exquisite. They are very careful about all the details here. Worth every penny!

We arrived past 2pm n there were only a few people inside n we were given the choice to choose our table. We chose the corner as it was sunny n rays of sun came in. But it didn't bother us. The oysters n their lobster salad n sole fish was good. We also had the king estate as our... More

This is not an inexpensive choice, by any means. This is a special place, for a special night that should be savored. We have paid more, recieved less and did not have the view of the Oyster Bar. There are no suggestions since I cannot believe one could find finer cuisine or wine or service. A spur of the moment... More

The Oyster Bar is perfectly situated for a scenic drive punctuated with a spectacular sunset view and amazing food. After my first time I couldn't wait to come back. First of all, you cannot get there without taking a scenic drive. From the south you drive through beautiful Skagit Valley tidelands and farms with some views of the San Juan... More

Arrived just as the sun was setting, view over the Bay was terrific. Our waiter, John, was most helpful with the Oyster suggestions. Have been stopping at the Oyster Bar for over 40 years, and have never been disappointed. Make reservations if you can, but if you are just driving by and looking for a great place to eat, give...

I've eaten at this celebrated Bellingham-area oyster bar several times over the past few years, most recently earlier this week, and every time I've left feeling so grateful for the experience. It's beyond the excellent food for me, because the spectacular mountain and water view from our table right at the edge of the cliff, the coziness of the cabin-like... More

I have been to this restaurant with friends from out of town on a variety of occasions. It is worth driving an hour and a half to get there. I have only done lunch, that way I'm not driving home at night. Invariably we order different plates from each other and then argue as to who's is the best. The... More

Beautiful place, good service, good ingredients but disappointing considering the price. I had the Elk Burger which would have been excellent in a different and smaller bun and the french fries were overdone.

Just not a lot of options around like the oyster bar. Beautiful relaxed casual upscale dining. Lots of attention placed on fresh menu items. Takes on a new ambience summer and winter. Still our favourite.
