Eagles Buffet: Save room for dessert!
10200 Quil Ceda Blvd
If you’re shopping at Seattle Premium Outlets this Black Friday, be sure to stop by the Eagles Buffet for a bite to eat in the Tulalip Casino. It’s walking distance from the Outlet, and the food selection is decent.
After a full day of shopping, we waited for about 15 minutes in line for dinner. When we were seated, a server came by to take our drink orders. I’m not sure why they don’t have soda fountains available for self-serve. If you’re ordering iced tea, don’t forget to ask for sweetened iced tea. In Canada, it’s assumed that iced tea is sweetened but apparently ‘iced tea,’ in the States is just that, a cup of regular ol’ tea with ice in it. No sugar. No lemon.
We got very ambitious on our first run and loaded up our plates. Yes, mine is the one without much veggies on it.
We were disappointed that there wasn’t a big seafood selection though. There was some overcooked salmon served by a chef, and some prawns. At Niagara Falls in Ontario, there are full seafood buffets where giant, mutant prawns, big slabs of fish and lobster and crab are available for all you can eat.
At the Eagles Buffet, there was a standard salad bar: for fruit and veggies. There was a section of Chinese food with potstickers, egg rolls and dumplings. A pasta station offered cheesy carbs smothered in too much tomato sauce.
There was a corner station set up like the Mongolian Grill in Vancouver. You take a bowl and select from a bunch of fresh ingredients and hand it over to cooks to fry it up with your choice sauce. It was entertaining to watch but the food didn’t look all that tasty.
We saved room for the extraordinarily large dessert display case. There was a sundae bar available in addition to a section of gluten free and sugar free desserts. We tried a few of the sugar free cream puffs and they weren’t bad.
My absolute favourite was the peanut butter cream pie. It was creamy and dense and delicious.
The cookies were chewy and dense as well. We even packed a few for the road!
Not the most photogenic was the chocolate bundt cake but it was moist and rich and decadent.
I’d rank the Eagles Buffet as a run-of-the-mill buffet with all the regular food stations. It is however, the most convenient restaurant near Seattle Premium Outlets aside from the fast food available in the outlet food court.
