With Stanwood Grill, located in the small town of Stanwood, Washington, there's no need to venture into the big city for a great dining experience. The restaurant provides delicious food six nights a week. Owners Paul and Dan Pickering strive to offer top service at this locally owned and operated establishment. A relaxed, high-end atmosphere makes this a great place to dine out.
Chef David Petersen uses fresh ingredients to build a creative menu at Stanwood Grill. Fresh herbs grown right in the rooftop garden garnish drinks and add flavor to his dishes. The menu offers a twist on some typical menu staples. For example, the grilled Alaskan Salmon is wrapped in boar bacon and then seared and served with a potato au gratin, vegetables and a cider-poached apple salad. Those creative twists are what make the meals at Stanwood Grill so memorable.

Amazing food and service, great selection as always!!!
Nice date night place. Not noisy, but relatable and consistent food that is not over the top. And fairly priced. The server and owner were sincere in the desire to make our evening happy and pleasant. I appreciate the good attitudes.
Service was friendly and timely; food was poorly cooked. Wine was good!
Great service and food. Always enjoyable to dine there.
This is our go-to restaurant for birthdays and anniveraries!
It was good. The only reason I am giving it 4 stars out of 5 is they were already out of their signature pork chop, which is what my better half had been very much looking forward too. We both ended up doing calamari for an appetizer and ribeye steaks, and all was fabulous.
Food, service where as great as always. We will be back!
Had to wait a few minutes when we walked in as there was no one up front to greet us, not a huge deal but I would have expected to be greeted as we walked in as this is an upscale restaurant.
Asked for a blue cheese crust on my ribeye steak instead of the spiced balsamic demi and they did this at no xtra charge. The steak was amazing!
Family get together, and service and food was awesome! Love this restaurant!
best pork chop i ever ate and the steak done to perfection
First time eating here, will not be the last! Food was great! Service was exceptional, friendly and handled very well. (6 of us for Dinner)
The food was great. We were there on St Patrick’s Day and the corned beef and cabbage was delicious. My husband had steak and loved it and the garlic mashed potatoes. The only issue was that the service was painfully slow.
This was the 2nd time here and it was just as amazing as the first time! Delicious food and great service!
Pork Loin dinner special was absolutely delicious.
My wife and I drove up from Everett, and met my father from Anacortes at this restaurant for our first visit to the restaurant. The seared Ahi tuna appetizer was worth the 40 minute drive up from Everett. In fact, so good I ordered another round. Drinks were great. Food took a bit to get to us but I blame that on my dad who ordered the thick cut pork tenderloin which took a while to cook, so not the cook's fault. I'd drive up again no question.
Great food, Awesome service, wife loves the cocktail list and their beer selection is good. Great place to eat.
Always good food, my wife and I have been going to the
Stanwood Grill for almost 20 years. Never had a bad meal.
It was so nice to get out and have dinner! The food was excellent as was the service. The team was kind and attentive and went above and beyond to express smiles behind the masks.
Great place and atmosphere. Definitely will be back
The food was wonderful, cooked to perfection with reasonable portions and the service was excellent.
Food tasted fine. Only complaint is how much fat and gristle there was on my ribeye and the Demi glaze was a little much. Might just order it with nothing on it but salt and pepper next time. Cocktails and appetizer were fantastic though!
Food was delicious and service was excellent. Filet and Pork Chop were delicious.
This is one of our favorite restaurants. We go here at least once a month. The waitress’s are great.
Stanwood Grill has been one of my favorite restaurants since they opened and I sincerely hope that they are still with us post pandemic. Their Grill Hamburger is the best hamburger I've ever eaten, since the last one I had there before the pandemic started!
The food was wonderful. The server was very attentive and helpful. The restaurant had limited the number of tables available and all the staff was wearing masks. We will definently go back again
We love going to the grill. Always great service and great quality food.
The service was great...my friend ordered hi burger rare and it was well done...other that that, all was great!
First evening open after COVID-19 shutdown. Very positive staff and great time.
Great food expertly prepared...friendly service! Had the salmon and it was the best salmon I’ve had in a loooong time.
Stanwood hidden gem....always consistent quality ... atmosphere is perfect and service is always on spot!!!
We had our 50th Wedding Anniversary dinner with them as we were staying on Camano Island. We enjoyed our dinner, the food was good, service good, they are being careful during these COVID times.
The service was great, our server was so sweet and patient; as we were in no hurry that evening:) The cauliflower and calamari appetizers were amazing!!! Dinner was yummy. Cocktails were surprisingly pricey. And who doesn’t love homemade dessert??? We would definitely go back:)
Wonderful food, specialty cocktails, small town charm.
There was 3 specials (fish, pasta and beef) and a smaller daily menu. Regardless there were plenty of options to choose from. We had the multigrain bread basket, cod & chips with coleslaw and the Stanwood Grill salad with grilled chicken. We loved the salad and the fish & chips. The restaurant seats guests at every other table ensuring distancing is met. It was nice to have a sitdown meal and support a local business too.
Amazing! Went for my birthday dinner, was recommended by one of our friends and we were not disappointed!
The food and service were exceptional. I had the filet mignon special and it was so delicious.
We had a great time thank you very much for being open looking forward to seeing y'all again thank you thank you thank you
I went for the Ahi Tuna and it was wonderful. My guest also had the Ahi Tuna and was also superb. The appetizers were very good and delicious desserts.
Their food is always very good and the atmosphere is so inviting. Our servers have been terrific over the years!
