    Hopefully she will be able to make Pierside Kitchen a better dining experience. We’ve been there two or three times. Yes the views are wonderful and the restaurant is nice to be in. But the food is way overpriced and not that great, unfortunately.

    Suggestion would be to combine Pierside and Packers into one big restaurant and try to emulate Anthony’s at Squalicum Harbor in Bellingham. They’re just about perfect and we go there quite a bit. Unfortunately, we won’t be going back to Pierside.

      Semiahmoo also needs to bring back the dedicated Starbucks coffee and gift shop they had before. Yes, there is one in the marina. But you’d think there would be one directly inside the hotel for guests.
