Outdoor Dining Guide

Outdoor dining
The sun has come out of hibernation, and we here in Everett are basking in its glory. It also helps that we happen to have a boozy drink in our hand and a delicious plate of food in front of us. Enjoy some rays and delicious eats at some of Everett's best places to enjoy outdoor dining.

Lombardi's Italian


How about a seat overlooking the biggest public marina along the west coast?  Lombardi’s Italian is a long-time local favorite that serves up the delicious Italian fare, great cocktails and has one of the best happy hours in town (get the sliders or bacon wrapped dates). 
Their vast patio runs along the whole west side of the restaurant and if you’re able to score a seat along the far west side, do it. If it’s too busy to get a waterfront seat, don’t fret. The whole patio is marvelous on a sunny day. If you’re visiting during the summer and it’s a Thursday or Saturday night, we suggest paying the reserve a table for four on the patio for Music at the Marina. Prices range from $20-$40, but it’s worth it for a private table with excellent service. 

Scuttlebutt Brewing

Everett’s iconic brew pub is a family-friendly gem located at Waterfront Place. The craft beer is what put them on the map, but the food is great too. TBH the menu is epically long and super varied which makes it a great spot for families and groups. The patio faces west, which gives guests a chance to dine in the sun while enjoying a nice westerly sea breeze that comes off the water (usually in the afternoon).
Not into beer? That’s cool; there’s a whole bar that serves up delicious cocktails and mocktails too. We suggest the fish and chips, clam chowder or any of their burgers. The cheese-smothered FKC fries are a favorite among gut bomb enthusiasts. Local tip: After you finish up, take some time to walk over to Boxcar Park and take in the excellent water views (head due west from Scuttlebutt to get there). 

Anthony’s Woodfire, Homeport & Woody's

These restaurants at the waterfront offer the same level of excellent service and award-winning cuisine with slightly different views and menus.
Anthony's Woodfire’s patio borders the marina, so the view overlooks the beautiful boats and the occasional harbor seal. It’s also a little less windy in the afternoon. Concerning menu, Woodfire’s vibe is a bit more casual with wood-fired pizza, burgers and steaks cooked on a wood-fired grill. 
Anthony’s Homeport’s patio faces west, overlooking the channel and Jetty Island. Guests can sip their drinks and watch the boats float on by. The patio is smaller, and a little more crowded than Woodfire's, but it’s a great place to be on an evening, especially during happy hour. 

Woody's is a fantastic, quick walk-up window, adjoining the Woodfire Grill. They serve classic Anthony's items in grab-and-go style to make it easy for those looking to have a picnic or take food back to their boats. Get your food and enjoy a seat in the Port's new Commodore Plaza that overlooks the marina. 
As far as menu and ambiance go, the Homeport’s vibe is a little fancier with a greater focus on seafood. Local tip: the happy hour menu offers fantastic deals on food and drinks. The Ahi Nachos and the Bar Burger will both make you glad to be alive. 

Bluewater Distilling 


Bluewater Distilling is home to some the best cocktails around. During the summer, they carve out a little patio in front of their spot at Waterfront Place. Like the patio at Scuttlebutt, it faces west, so you get some good afternoon sun and the westerly breeze. We love the vibe here. It's romantic and oozes the hand-made feeling. You'll know what we mean when you step inside and look around – and especially once you see the bartender make a cocktail. It's art. 

Sol Food


Sol Food's patio will blow your mind. It's like, one minute you're in downtown Everett. Next, you're in Cuba. Seriously, the patio is set in a courtyard, walled off on all four sides by old brick buildings. There's plenty of flora, Latin-inspired art and even a palm tree (a big one). Go on a sunny day and order a mojito along with some plantain chips. If you're extra hungry, the Cuban Sandwich is decadent. 

Bhu Ping Thai


Located near the corner of Madison St. and Evergreen Way, Bhu Ping is a sophisticated eatery where you can enjoy jazz and precise wine recommendations by a professionally trained sommelier (who also happens to be the owner, Noi).
The patio is an overlooked gem in the summer time. Surrounded by climbing vines and rhododendron bushes planted in their raised garden, you can choose from a variety of wrought iron tables or two wooden picnic tables that can easily seat a family of four. The patio receives full service, so don’t worry about asking to be seated outside. They’ll keep the water coming with bright smiles no matter where you sit.
The biggest treat that comes with dining outside is sitting near their eccentric fountain, featuring a menagerie of figurines and four different spouts, all giving off relaxing waterfall vibes. With their large umbrellas sheltering you from the sun’s rays, a lengthy beer, wine, and sake list, and delicious food from no spice to 5 stars, Bhu Ping is the perfect place to sit back and let your mouth burn. Local tip: check out the bottle shop in the back. Trust us. 

The New Mexicans


Available for drop-in seating or reserved parties, the patio is highlighted by one large built-in table with a long, built-in fire-pit down the center. Seating approximately 6-8 people, this is a great place to reserve for a fun business dinner or large family reunion.
This patio has a translucent roof over the top, as well as eclectic decor ranging from cute twinkle lights to bull skulls. We highly recommend calling ahead and reserving the patio, since this place is currently one of Everett’s most popular restaurants on the weekends.
In honor of sunny days, we recommend ordering one of their classic margaritas (best in town) with a huge set of BBQ ribs. It may take a while, but it is well worth the wait.

Eightball Cafe


Nestled in the heart of downtown on Colby Ave. is a fun family-friendly dining option with wood fired pizza in many unique mixings such as gyro pizza!

The patio sits right along Colby Ave. so you can people watch and enjoy a fun-filled night downtown. They also serve brunch if you're more of a morning person. Bloody Mary's in the warm sunshine are a true delicacy. 

The service and the drink selection are both fantastic so you will not regret visiting!
