Bellingham Alive is a small, woman-owned business with fewer than 10 employees. For more than a decade, we’ve worked hard to create meaningful content that speaks to where you live. We appreciate the love and support the community has shown throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. To show our gratitude, each week we will highlight a different local business whose continued support has helped us stay open during this difficult time. Thank you!

Nicki’s Bella Marina started as Nicki’s Diner in Blaine in 1992. The restaurant eventually moved to Bellingham in 2008, where it remains today. The restaurant is famous for its waterfront views and mouthwatering, tempura-battered fish & chips. They also specialize in private events and catering in their upper-level Skyline Room, with seafood, steaks, and gourmet burgers.

Nicki’s Bella Marina has partnered with us since 2013, and was voted Best of the Northwest in 2016, and 2018-2020 for Best Fish & Chips. We thank Nicki’s for partnering with us and contributing to the continual growth of Bellingham Alive! 2615 S. Harbor Loop Dr., Bellingham, 360.332.2505,
