A rating of 1/4 is more appropriate. Our waiter, new to the staff, was very good. However, we each ordered a medium rare New York strip, anticipating the excellent steaks we had enjoyed in the past. These were the worst steaks we have ever had....More

We stayed at Semiahmoo for our anniversary, and we wanted to eat Steak and this place had good reviews. So we drove 20 minutes from Semiahmoo Resort to Blaine WA, and this place did not disappoint. We started with the Scallops Appetizer and it was...More

We were eager for a repeat of what previous experience told us was the best example of fine dining in Blaine, WA. Part of our order included a bowl of onion soup which is a separate menu item. Though, soon after it came, we politely...More

Our third visit and there will be a fourth. Both the 8 ounce Filet Mignon and 16 ounce rib eyes were cooked to perfection. Enjoyed the mashed potatoes and baked potatoes. Bread was cold and dry. Reasonable wine prices. Good service.

Service was fine, but filet steaks of all three diners were rather dry. My "5 scallop" appetizer was actually 2 1/2 scallops cut across horizontally, and were extremely rubbery. Way overcooked. I was very surprised to find that I was charged for the scallops despite...More

What can I say about the food here? Excellent! The steak is always cooked to your tastes. The steak burger is delicious. The calamari is the best I've had. Try it for yourself. You won't be disappointed!
