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.

I think our server was on another cloud. She forgot my 1 dozen oysters and after being prompted having brought the starters of the other guests, she returned with 1/2 dozen for me. I did mention that I had requested 1 dozen and suggested she forget the other1/2 dozen. The rest of the meal was excellent. The view is spectacular,... More

Have eaten here twice. Both times the service and food was excellent. Very good wine list. Oysters are there to be had if that's your preference but the main dinner menu has lots of choices, all beautifully prepared. Will go back many times

If you are dining in Whatcom County, put this on your list. Why? Let's start with the casual ambiance--warm, reassuring, confident, and oh so very very comfortable and effortless - perfectly framed with all that Chuckanut has to offer - knock out views, I mean KNOCK-OUT views of the bay, San Juan Islands, spectacular sunsets, and oh so pretty skies....

Stopped in for a quick bite before hitting the road again. The views are amazing and the baked oysters are even better ! Menu is a bit pricey but the oyster bar does provide a unique intimate cabin feel. Very cool.

The loveliest setting, cozy, elegant and super relaxing. It overlooks the trees and ocean and the service was pretty nice. The salmon chowder was good, but the elk burger tasted gamey and a bit dry. Overall, I would come back just to enjoy the setting and with a glass of wine.

The location is, of course, what this place is all about, the view is incredible, can't wait to go back at sunset. It's very small, make a res. and make sure to sit upstairs. The food is delicious and there's much more than oysters (lucky for me, don't like oysters!). Service is friendly and attentive, lunch here was a perfect... More

Figuring OBCD should have a good view of the bay, we pulled in. The linen napkins, tablecloths, fresh flowers, etc were a little more gourmet/refined than we had planned for a quick lunch stop. But the food matched the atmosphere, so even though it was one of the more expensive lunch tabs I've had in awhile; no complaints. Our table... More
