    We were on way home from Deception Pass and found 13 Moons on Opentable. This restaurant is in the Swinomish Casino and we were very pleased with the food quality and views. Nice outdoor deck for lounging and eating as well. We would definitely go back again next time we are in the area.

    we ordered a filet and new york --- one w/baker and one mashed --- orders came completely reversed plus the tiny lil container of sour cream wouldn't even fit on a fork --- when pay $34 for a meal want a nice big loaded baked potato or would have had fries.... The filet was rare - as the ny was sposed to be and vice versa --- they did comp one meal but after numerous trips to chefs and all was ruined!!!

    We treated good friends to dinner and were so pleased with our choice of 13 Moons! Everything was excellent - food, wine, service, view. We all chose one of the specials and our steak and salmon were cooked exactly to our satisfaction. We were lucky to have a table on the patio on a lovely evening and really enjoyed the ambiance. When the evening cooled, the staff was right there to turn on outdoor heater and we finished our meal in complete comfort. We will definitely return!

    We celebrated our anniversary there and absolutely loved it! The food was outstanding. The servers were attentive but never overly so. Even the manager was out and about working and serving and checking everyone was pleased! Timing of food and drink refills were right on. The desert menu was the best I've seen! We sat outside and the views were wonderful. Heaters and blankets available if needed. They really pay attention to detail. It's worth a drive to experience this place.

    I liked this restaurant a lot. It's not so super fancy fine dining, but it's just fine. I have to say the food was top notch and the menu had lots of things I want to come back and try for my next visit. It's upstairs within the casino, but don't let that put you off. Lots of free parking and valet if you wish. They are super polite at this casino, always greeting guests properly and they have all the good gaming, so it's not one to drive by - it's one of the good ones. Plus the on-site Chevron station has the cheapest gas prices in the area, so take care of that when you visit too. The restaurant has a bar/lounge side and a side with tables and a large outdoor area overlooking the ocean. Not too expensive either. You'll like it.

    I enjoyed the dinner. We were a party of 8 for a special occasion. Service was friendly, but a little on the slow side. Dinner was fine - not incredible, but nothing to complain about. This restaurant is certainly not shy about charging for the experience. I had a very small filet, nicely prepared and plated - $40. Not expensive by Seattle standards but a little dear around here. Dessert was very good. If I had any complaint it would be the ticky-tacky pianist in the bar, with a canned percussion system. Better to have recorded music than a bad live act, my opinion. They tacked on the obligatory 18% for a large party. I usually tip 20% so it cost the server 2%. Oh well, there's a cost for a sure bet, right? All in all, it was OK.

    We had dinner at 13 Moons on a beautiful Sunday Summer evening. We sat on the patio overlooking Swinomish Channel. We were in the mood for a light dinner since the weather has been so warm. We had a house salad with a light dressing. The salad was perfect..baby romaine with shredded carrots and cherry tomatoes. We then had the crab macaroni and cheese..to die for. Just a little cast iron ramekin of cheesy, crab goodness..not skimping on the crab at all..my favorite. Paired with a glass of Riesling...a light summer dinner that was worth the trip from Snohomish!

    Our waitress was positive and friendly. The view is partially blocked by the huge patio (too chilly to eat outside). We both ordered the steak and salmon special. My medium steak was rare and my husbands salmon was a poor cut. The ice cream desert had a very hard brownie base. We will probably go to the buffet in the casino next time.

    13 Moons needs to do something about the ventilation system. The smoke from the casino was all you could smell. The food was good. The service was ok. The view is beautiful. We won't be back though. We both smelled like cigarettes the rest of the night.

    I didn't think there was enough crab in my crab louis. The dressing was outstanding and there were good items in the salad. The shrimp were a good addition since the crab was scarce. Without the shrimp, the louis would be a very great disappointment.

    The food was very delicious and comes from local merchants (vegetables, seafood, meat). The steak was cooked perfectly and could be cut with a butter knife. The seafood was fresh and prepared perfectly. They served a baked "Samish russet potato" that was extremely flavorful and delicious.

    Dinner started out with a reservation for 6 or us, but we were fortunate to have 2 more join our group at the last minute and they were very accommodating. We requested the patio but as the time arrived for us to get to the restaurant the weather had turned and they found a spot for us inside. Service was spot on. Nikki is the best server and we always ask for her. Food was wonderful as well. Good food and drink and great company makes it a wonderful night!

    I think we, unfortunately, just had a...lacking server. We weren't told the special (steak and halibut..I would have definitely purchased), we weren't delivered the fresh bread ('because we dined outside...however the other 3 tables around us all received their 'amazing fresh bread'). We each ordered a bar drink, but once that was empty and we said we'd finish with water...basically no service. Water was empty, twice for 10-15 minutes each time. I give 3 stars because the two meals we did order, the filet and the pork chop, were both delicious!

    The food and service was excellent. The only negative was the length of time. We spent two hours and the time between courses was too long. Our chef son in law observed that the three chefs were each working on each plate. At on point there were 10 plates up and it was amusing to watch them each contribute something to every plate. Overall an excellent dining experience.

    The food was incredible and matched by the service. Each entree was carefully prepared and plated, and accompanied by sides that were equally outstanding. There is no finer dining experience in the NW. Our waitstaff was attentive, but not intrusive. As usual, our entire experience exceeded our previous visit.

    The food was average at best. My husband had a steak that was not a good cut and rather tasteless and the $6.00 baked potatoe was a bit over priced. The service was poor. I actually asked if our waiter went home as we only saw him twice and the restaurant was not busy. There were two waitresses serving other tables who did a fantastic job. Unfortunately we were not at one of their tables.

    Crab Louis had more shrimp than crab and the lettuce leaves were way too large for proper eating etiquette... although the dressing was delicious. The atmosphere of eating on the outdoor patio in front of the fireplace was nice even though it had started to rain. Our waitress put up the umbrella as we wanted to stay on the patio. The view of camp trailers below was interfering with the scenic view of the Bay. Dessert was savory. The drinks were good. Service was friendly and attentive. Would like to see them be open for lunch time dining.

    I had the wild caught halibut. It was the third time I've had it at 13 Moons, and every time it was just outstanding!!!!!!! Perfectly cooked, moist and tender and so absolutely delicious!!!! i can not recommend it highly enough!!!!!! My husband had the Dungeness Crab and Shrimp Louie. He said it was really excellent - lots of crab and shrimp and avocado. They also had wild salmon on the menu. I have had it there in the past, and it is also wonderful - perfectly cooked and so flavorful. The menu changes with the seasons, and with what seafood is available at that time. So the fish and shellfish is always very very fresh.
