Chuckanut Manor Review
The old-fashioned, glassed-in dining room and bar overlook the mouth of the Samish River, Samish Bay, and the mudflats, where great blue herons hang out. It's a popular spot for sunset- and bird-watching: bird feeders outside the bar's picture windows attract finches, chickadees, red-winged blackbirds, and other songbirds. Occasionally bald eagles can be seen gliding past. Besides the view, folks come here for classic American fare with an emphasis on steak and fresh seafood—the mac-and-Jack-battered halibut is a novel take on fish-and-chips. There's also a very popular Sunday champagne brunch.
