13moons captures the warmth of a lodge atmosphere combined with the unsurpassed flavors of hand-cut Alder wood grilled seafood, meats and the freshest flavors of the Northwest. The chefs hand-pick fresh seafood from the region, including sockeye and silver salmon, halibut, spot prawns, dungeness crab, an array of fresh shellfish, and take full advantage of Skagit Valley produce to prepare seasonal garnishes and create decadent vegetarian offerings.

    The food was excellent and service was superb. The special was Filet Mignon and Salmon - a perfect combination for the PNW! Food was cooked to perfection and service was outstanding even for a busy Saturday night with two large groups. The drinks from the bar were a little weak, but delicious none-the-less. I would highly recommend this restaurant!

    This was our first time dining at 13 Moons. We went on a recommendation from a friend. The decor was elegant modern minimalist...very clean and refreshing. Service was impeccable. Our server, Lisa, was amiable and interactive without being overbearing. Our meals were delicious and made perfectly to order. They ran out of the special so they offered an alternative special which was divine. They even accommodated a complex food allergy in our party. Will definitely go again. Highly recommend!

    This was my first trip to 13Moons and my wife and I met a recently hired associate for dinner to get to know her. My wife said she had the best desert, the best appetizer and the best steak that she's experienced in a long time. We frequently enjoy the Bistro in Arlington, El Gaucho & The Met in Seattle so we were impressed by this restaurant.

    The menu isn't overwhelming in size which made ordering easy. Simple wine list but what was on it tasted great! The service was fabulous! Dinner for 3 of us including beverages and a dessert was $150 plus tip... I've been there twice and will definitely go back, hopefully the weather is nice enough to sit outside!

    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 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.

    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!
