“Coachmen's Lodge is a cozy restaurant where you'll find delicious food.”
“The food was wonderful and the function room was very nice.”
One of the most hilariously HORRIBLE
dining experiences ever! Don't
waste your money on the Coachman's Lodge in Bellingham (unless you're a glutton for terrible service and mediocre food). I can't imagine
having a wedding/event there! We went with the family last night, to
celebrate my little brother's graduation from high school. I actually
had to make a list of all the ways in which this experience was so
-we had reservations for 8:30, but had to wait until 9:05 to be seated
-we were welcomed with packaged crackers and processed pub cheese,
instead of rolls (â??fine diningâ???)
-the waitress was overtly frustrated, frazzled, confused and ornery.
-she had to go around the table twice to get the order â??rightâ??
-they were out of baked potatoes, which somehow caused our whole order
to be delayed
-we didn't get served until 10:20 (thats more than an hour after being seated)
-the chicken Parmesan didn't have ANY Parmesan on it (she had asked
for no sauce... not no cheese)
-the salad lettuce was limp
-the fish & chips came with sour cream instead of tartar sauce, and
there was no coleslaw
-the water had a strong chlorine smell (straight from the sink), we
had to ask specifically for filtered water from the bar
-the table was wobbly, and track lighting pointed right in our eyes
-the waitress opened the wine without removing the foil, and poured it
like a total amateur!
-by the time we were eating, the music playlist had already repeated, ha!
-when we complained about the service/overall experience to the
waitress, she said that the manager wasn't available, and instead took
down our contact information
-24 hours later and still no phone call from a manager/proprietor
Epic â??fine-diningâ?? FAIL. At least we have a good story.
About as friendly as your local IRS agent.
The staff is extremely rude, and I'm not surprised since the manager, if you can call him that, is a real piece of work. They were doing construction work during a wedding ceremony, unbelievable! The food tasted like a frozen dinner, and you had a huge assortment of drinks, though. You could choose a glass of water with two or three drops of whatever liquor you wanted.
This place absolutely sucks.
