About the restaurant
Waves crashing against the shore just outside a wall of windows. Steamer clams steeped in white wine, butter and garlic with freshly baked garlic bread on the table in front of you. Service that is relaxed, upscale, and family-friendly. That’s Georgie’s—with a distinctly modern atmosphere that mirrors the calm of the ocean and an eclectic menu featuring Northwest fare and a variety of favorites for every age and every palate.

We were guests at the Hallmark Resort next door and actually ate here both nights we were in town. First off, if you don't have a reservation, be prepared for a wait, since it is very popular. That being said, on both occasions, we had excellent, attentive service, but not the kind that continually interrupts your conversation. The view is spectacular and they even have automatic window washing machines to make sure that the windows aren't covered with salt. Our first night we had a bay shrimp and a crab cocktail. One of us is very allergic to crab, which we told the server. She went back to the kitchen to make sure that there would be no cross contamination. They were both very fresh tasting, and the cocktail sauce that came with them was very tangy, but mild. That night, one of us had a perfect medium rare prime rib, and the other a perfect medium steak. Both were so tender and flavorful, and the vegetables were probably in some garden the day before. There were so many other things on the menu we wanted to try, that we made a reservation for the second night. Again, same seafood cocktails, which tasted the same, so we knew our first ones weren't a fluke. The time on of us had the herb crusted salmon salad, with all sorts of fruit, and the other had the stuffed salmon, with bay shrimp, crab, and a hollandaise (sp) sauce that so creamy and paired perfectly with the rest of the meal. (And the person who had this normally dislikes that sauce, so it is a tribute that it was all consumed and even scraped off the plate.) We were too full for desserts both night, but it looked to be a good selection. Full bar, with extensive lists of spirits and a well-curated wine list. 100% recommend.

We had a little wait to be seated and then we were seated close to the bar downstairs. It was my wife’s birthday and I wanted it to be special. I asked for another table and within 10 minutes they had another table for us that was much better! Thanks! The food and service were great from that point forward. I had Salmon and it was cooked perfectly. My wife had mahi and hers was cooked nicely. Presentation was awesome and sauces were tasty.
