Hi I am new here and have noticed that most of the threads are in the main cities. Well how about outside the city? What is your favorite place on the Northend? From Lynnwood north to the Canadian Border. Any type of food low buck to high dollar Good family Italian, seafood, real hispanic, oreiental, it doesn't matter just looking for the wide spectrum of what is good outside of the rat race.

Welcome hickdolphin (love to know the story behind that handle!)

Probably my favorite place 'tween here and the border is the Oyster Bar on Chuckanut Drive, though its been several years since I've been.

My family spent a week in Birch Bay a couple years ago and discovered some good places. Dutch Mother's in Lynden serves these outrageous Dutch pancakes that are somewhere between a crepe and an American pancake and they have bacon and cheese cooked into them. Boundary Bay in Bellingham makes some of my favorite beers and offers good pub grub. The food at Semiahmoo has been good at times, but my most recent visit was very disappointing. If you can sneak across the border to White Rock, there are a number of good restaurants along the waterfront.

Those are a couple of places I have not been yet. I will have to try them. Is there anything in the Everett to marysville area that has good food?

There's a place just off the freeway in Marysville that's in a log building. Can't remember the name, but I like stopping there when I go golfing up that way. Nothing remarkable, but honest diner kind of food.

Well I grew up in the cities and beaches of calif. them moved to a farm. I love the country yet I love the water I spend as much time in it as possible. So a friend of mine gave me the tag

we just had brunch recently in Everett at Alligator Soul which was good. the dinner menu looked much more interesting so I would really like to get up there again for that.

we also like stopping in Bellingham at a wood fired pizza place called La Fiamma

Yes the Alligator soul is great! It also has a crawfish feed a couple of times a year that is very tasty.
The place in Marysville used to be called Mxwells acording to a friend of mine. She said it was good food.
My son just went to the Blazing Onion in Mill creek and he loved it. he had the bacon cheese burger it had 2 big slices of pepered bacon and real cheese and because of the name of the place he decided to get the grilled onions on it. and he doesn't like onions. but when he got it he said that he loved it and is definately going back. they had a choice of fries, onion rings or sweet potatoe fries or any combination of 2 and it was only $8 I will have to try that place as well

Paul and I met my parents for dinner at Emory's on Silver Lake last night and it wasn't horrible! Well, parts of it were but we all had the fish and chips and I have to say, these were the best f & c I've had in years. Nice piece of Alaskan cod with a tempura batter, fried perfectly. The fries were fine, better than some, than some, but that fish! I'll be craving that for sure. It's nice to have a place to meet half way that isn't Arnie's!

On the news last night, I saw the sad news that Emory's has burned to the ground. Nancy Lesons post about it here.

I don't know how I missed this post from September, but we occasionally go to Emory's too, since it's actually pretty close for us. The food has been predictable, if not that adventurous, and the service is wonderful. We'll really miss being able to head for Emory's when too tired to go to our more usual haunts down south. Hope they are able to re-build. unsure.gif

re-upping this thread as I'm heading up to Bellingham next week for a concert & would love suggestions for where we should dine first (concert is being held at the PAC Concert Hall on WWUs Campus)

From earlier comments I gather that Boundary Bay or LaFiamma could be good choices. Also possibly the Flat Tapas Bar in Fairhaven. Any updates or other reccommendations?

We ended up having breakfast at the Maltby Cafe where I hadn't been before. Since their entrees are HUGE I didn't need lunch. smile.gif
