About Us

For over 40 years the Cliff House has been Bellingham's best kept secret!  Overlooking Bellingham Bay, The Cliff House is locally owned and operated, founded by James F Bolster in 1969, and has remained in the Bolster family.  The Cliff House has evolved over the years while staying true to the local community here in Bellingham, where we strive to offer and showcase as many local ingredients and seasonal offerings found right here in Whatcom County.
