Restaurants and Dining

Whatcom County is SO delicious! Locally farmed and fished foods are a mainstay in the Bellingham region. Restaurants typically feature hyper-local menus prepared by creative chefs, using ingredients grown nearby. What they don't feature is snobbery. Fresh, local, & creative are the norms here, not necessarily something to get dressed up about!

Wild Pacific salmon, fresh shellfish, artisan cheeses, cow-to-cone ice cream, grass-fed meats, organic produce, craft breweries, and award-winning wines and spirits are all highlights here. 

All of that means wonderful dining choices for you at our imaginative and comfortable restaurants, so go ahead, eat out and eat often!

We are curating different themed experiences that serve as a free guide to discover everything Whatcom County has to offer. 

Eat at farm to table restaurants, explore different waterfront destinations, shop at local businesses, ignite your imagination while touring museums and admiring murals, plus so much more!

Check in at participating locations to earn points that can be used for locally inspired prizes.

        We acknowledge that Whatcom County is located on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples. They cared for the lands that included what we’d call the Puget Sound region, Vancouver Island and British Columbia since time immemorial. This gives us the great obligation and opportunity to learn how to care for our surrounding areas and all the natural and human resources we require to live. We express our deepest respect and gratitude for our indigenous neighbors, the Lummi Nation and Nooksack Tribe, for their enduring care and protection of our shared lands and waterways.
