Restaurants and Dining

Guests can enjoy an immense amount of options to satisfy any appetite at one of the many resort dining establishments. If you are in the mood for fine dining, Tulalip Bay is a fine choice. This restaurant has a winning combination of a classic steakhouse meets traditional Italian food with an iconic, award-winning wine list.

In the mood for a more traditional Tulalip seafood experience, Blackfish offers this and more. Blackfish offers a seafood centric menu paying tribute to regional Northwest ingredients and Tulalip tradition. Long a staple of the Tulalip Tribe dining, salmon is prepared using traditional tribal techniques over an open fire pit (diners can view this while dining). Blackfish’s upscale, vibrant atmosphere is reminiscent of a Tulalip Longhouse, which provides the perfect backdrop for the restaurant’s offerings. The Wine Spectator award-winning wine list includes over 900 bottles to indulge your taste buds.
