Longhorn Saloon in Edison WA


If you're going to drive the Chuckanut Loop south from Bellingham, why not take a side trip to quaint Edison, Washington.

If you like fresh seafood, stop at the Longhorn Saloon. This is oyster country, so try the pan fried variety. The full meal with salad, fries and six plump Panko-coated beauties is really reasonable.

Not a seafood fan? The wings and burgers are always good choices, or drop in for one of their special nights with prime rib or slow-baked baby back ribs.

Everyone is welcome at the Longhorn, including bikers. You see lots of motorcycles on scenic Chuckanut Drive, so I'm sure they appreciate the warm welcome.


If you like to eat or enjoy a brew outdoors, they have a patio in back with views of the countryside and slough (kind of an ugly word for a pretty place) that winds its way inland from Padilla Bay.

At high tide, small boats can make their way this far inland. And if you like a bit of night life, come on weekends for good music and other special events. Hope to see you there. -- Margy

  1. We just love Bow and Edison - love the atmosphere and there always seems to be something going on in these two little towns. Plus just outside of town is some of the best eagle and Red Tail Hawk viewing and chances for photos. I even got a picture of a pheasant in the brush one time.

    1. It always amazes me how far the tidal areas extend into the land. I would never have expected to see a boat in the channel behind Edison. - Margy

  4. Sounds wonderful. We have lots of seafood restaurants here in Florida too, but nothing beats Pacific Northwest oysters. And Dungeness crab. I am missing home;)). My favorite place to walk here is called a Slough and I thought the same thing. Not a great nane somehow for a beautiful spot.
