Oyster Bar

I can't believe I spent so many years in Bellingham without trying this gem of a restaurant. The Oyster Bar located off of Chuckanut drive is a small restaurant with a gorgeous view overlooking the oyster farms on Samish Bay.

As I'm not a fan of raw oysters, I tried the golden pan fried oysters and a cup of crab bisque. Both were wonderful, as were the tender lightly battered fried calamari we had as an appetizer. For desert I couldn't resist the cappucino creme brulee topped with creme fresh, which was very tasty indeed.

The thing that surprised me the most was the level of service, which was excellent. Our server was extremely knowledgable not only about the menu, but also the history of the restaurant and the area.

With the excellent view, wonderful service, and great food with decent prices, I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone travelling to Bellingham, WA. The restaurant is fairly small, and due to its popularity, reservations are a must for lunch or dinner, especially in the summer.
