Fall Newsletter

Well, we did it!  We made it through another busy summer season, mostly unscathed!  We cannot believe how many people walked through our doors in July and August (20,325 to be precise), and sold a lot of burgers (2,762 to be precise).  It was the summer of broken things...our fish fryer went kaput so we had no fish and chips, calamari, or fried oysters for 3 weeks as the new one was on it's way.  Our deck heaters all decided to be on the fritz within days of each other (luckily it was a hot summer!), the walk in refrigerator had problems off and on, and countless other little issues...and yet somehow we managed to stay in good spirits (for the most part) and we are all still standing!   A special thanks to our locals who endure these few months with us, who are patient when there might be a 1.5 hour wait, who cheer us on and who rejoice when they get their restaurant back in September.  Thank you!  And no thank you is big enough to our amazing crew...seriously relentless shifts that they handled with grace!
Onto what's coming up:
We're wrapping up Washington Cider Week this weekend.  We are offering a cider menu with 3 ciders on draft and 6 by the bottle, featuring Snowdrift ciders.  Snowdrift is a family run cidery in Wenatchee, and one of the owners lives right here in Langley. If you make it in be sure to order their summer red on's out of this world!
Also this weekend, celebrate Arts Alive on the streets of Langley.  From 11-3 on Saturday, over 50 artists will be demonstrating their talents.  Click here for details

DJANGOFEST 2014 is just around the corner.  Langley will be filled with music on street corners, restaurants, and actual concerts and workshops throughout town...visit the WICA website for all the details.   We will be hosting the Saturday night jam session...after the show we'll plan on staying open until at least 1:30 and serving a limited menu from 10 pm until at least midnight.
Be sure to call us for reservations...this is one of Langley's busiest weekends.

Slow Food Whidbey Island is presenting TASTE OF WHIDBEY on September 28th at Greenbank Farms from 1-4.  Lots of bites and sips from local restaurants, wineries, bakeries, coffee roasters, all featuring local product.  These tickets sell out fast, so be sure to order yours today at or contact taste@whidbey for an auto response of ticket seller locations on the island.  Because Georgie at Willowood Farms told us she has a plethora of "toddler head sized beets" we will be preparing beets 3 ways.  Hope to see you there!
Here's a little video from last year's event...look for the cute kid in the yellow penguin sweater...that's our youngest.
We now have tote bags and kids t-shirts on sale...aren't they cute?!?
WE WILL BE CLOSED OCTOBER 6th and 7th for a deep clean and a deep breath.
