Mukilteo >Diamond Knot Brewery
Everything is great. I've eaten at the Diamond Knot on Camano Island quite a few times. The breakfast is well priced for what you get. I love the french toast. I have a few family members that LOVE the chili bowl ( I don't eat meat). They're from out of town and every time the come up stop by to get the bowl. I just tried the Cajun Salmon sandwich, and it was great. Very healthy and excellent flavor.
The best thing Mukilteo has.
The knot rocks and I go there often. It's a casual, fun, vibrant place where many locals go often...it's truly a pub or public place.
I have become friends with many different walks of life there plus it attracts people from far away places with it's proximity to Boeing.
Thin crust pizza or the Garlic BBQ sandwich are my menu items of choice. I enjoy being close to the water and people/ferry watching is entertaining especially in Summer.
It's not a place for those want their backside kissed. It appears that those who write bad reviews have gone there with the wrong expecations.
wow is this place over friendly.....eeeks.
my fiancee , father, and i went there to get an ice cold beer together before our beach walk not a bad day....
we went inside the pub hoping for the best, my fiancee went to the bathroom to freshen up...when he came out one of the barmaids ran into him....but that is not why I am so irrate!!! she proceeds to rub his arms and hold his arms repeatedly asking him if he is okay staring at him like he is her man or something....this lasted for at least a minute then she went on her way...now keep in mind....my fiancee is over 6 feet tall and this 5 foot something flewzy is not going to hurt him by running into him and the tlc she gave him was overly done and annoying!!!!!!!! If my man needs a bandaid or some comfort he can come to me not some hot in the pants bar whench! after the incedent she kept looking over at my man and smiling at him....what a discusting woman!!! yep the staff is just too over friendly for me seemed like a brothel or strip club to me.....
Not Impressed. You will be disappointed if you come here for food. Without a doubt, foods are rediculously over priced and taste unpleasant. I was extremly shocked to see the amount of food I got for my main dish. For $16, I got 3 pieces of baby shrimp and two pieces of tinny/thin salmon (the size of a business card), and they expect me to cook my own food, it was rediculous. If I knew, I wouldn't be here. On top of that vegetables were precooked but they were over cooked. Listen to this....they served us with cheezy plastic cup for ice water and beer. How unprofessional was that? Waitresses were slow, rude and unprofessional. For the same amount, you can find other local restaurants 10 times better.
There are better local breweries out there.....
First off, parking. It's very limited so you end up having to pay, and I'm not talking about a meter, your only other option is a parking lot where you have to pay $5.00 for 0-2 hours and so on.
The waitresses were not very helpful or friendly, the food was okay at best, but the fact that you have to cook your own food and no one explained this, way over priced...I had some steak that boasted on the menu, would fix any meat craving (or something to that effect)...not so much. When I did inquire about this Stone cooking thing, well, the first gal walked away as I was asking, the second one, just said it was easy, and walked off before I had a chance to make any more inquiries.
Most brewery's that I've been to, and I've been to quiet a few, enjoy talking about the beer that they brew and are more than happy to explain the differences. What we got from Diamond Knot? "Here's the beer menu, it's all right there," then they walked away.
As for the beer, it was okay, but nothing special.
Bottom line, this place made a BAD first impression, so needless to say we don't plan on going back or recommend this place to any of our friends.
I usually tip based on the service more than the food or drink. I've left lousy tips for bad service, but I think this is the first time I've never left a tip. It was that bad.
If you want a good experience, food and beer, try Hales, Pikes or any other local brewery. If you want bad customer service, over priced food and okay beer, go to Diamond Knot Brewery.
good food, kind of gimmicky.
If you like to throw peanuts on the floor, drink beer and watch your meat sizzle on a rock, this place is for you!
Microbrew selection is nice. Service is good. Food is good for the region (the steaks used taste like ranch beef). Your responsible to make sure that your steak is done correctly. They took too long to bring it out, so by the time I had got mine it had already been sitting on the rock too long (over done).
It's good, I just wouldn't call it stellar.
Best guilty pleasure around.... Let's be honest...this dive bar is unpretentious and simplistic. That being said, the food is good (try the Texas Chainsaw Pizza) and the beer is well made and diverse. The Industrial IPA is iconic and should be considered in any conversation about great microbrews. It seems like the service is slow at times, but when you actually count the number of people in there vs the number of staff, they are doing pretty well. All in all, a great experience if you are looking for a no frills night out.
fun time. The atmosphere is bit crazy...but the jukebox is good and the food is a blast to cook on your only little plate of piping hot stones! It's fun to throw you peanut shells on the floor, too. We did have to wait over 30 minutes for a table (standing) and the waitstaff seemed a bit overwhelmed. But it was worth the wait. Would go again in a heartbeat.
Do they steal from all thier customers?. We decided to go here after hearing good things about the food. When we realized it was more of a bar atmosphere we decided to stay for some food anyways. After about 15 minutes of waiting for a table we then had to go up to the bar to ask for menus. No one came by to take our order and when we got fed up after about a 1/2hr - 45 min we decided to pay for the two beers my fiance and dad had ordered. When we finally found the waiter we asked for the check, after another 10 minutes of waiting and my Dad looking to see if he had any $10 bills to just leave on the table he had to catch the waiter and give him a $20 bill. My fiance and I both saw him give the waiter the $20, then we both saw the waiter promptly put the money in his back pocket. When he came back with only $2 in change my father said I gave you a $20, and the waiter said "no dude you gave me a $10" and turned around. We were all so fed up at that point that we just left and will never go back again, no will we recommend going there, unless of course you like being stolen from, ignored, and paying 20$ for 2 lousy beers.
Unique Pub Food, Interesting Location, Great IPA. I don't get to this place enough, but will again this weekend. I usually visit during off hours when friends are in town (because my wife doesn't like to drink and my son is too young to be able to get in ;), e.g., Saturday or Sunday late afternoon or early evening. The keys are to order the right beer -- the staff are quite willing to allows a taster or two, and my favorite is there IPA, the best in the Seattle area, imho -- and the right food. My recommendation: The basil bleu. This is a mouth-watering rib-eye with bleu cheese, basil, mushroom, and veggies. The kicker, though, is that, like many of their dishes, it's delivered to you almost immediately as a raw steak on a 750-degree-F platter, and you get to cook it! If you like it raw, just start eating. If you like it well-done, cut it into thin slices and cook it on the platter to your own tastes. And they're very willing to advise on how to cook it based on your tastes, and you can get it just the way you like it! Again, great place, wish I lived closer!
