My girlfriend and I were down in the States on a shopping spree at the outlets a couple weekends ago. We were celebrating our two and a half years anniversary. So, we decided to come back to Eagles Buffet, now I haven’t ever reviewed this place. But it’s been at least a couple years since I’ve visited the buffet which is inside Tulalip Casino and right next to the Seattle Premium Outlets. Thankfully, we didn’t have to wait long in-line. We waited roughly 10 minutes?
In every buffet, there’s always some Asian dishes. It is no different at the Eagle’s. They had a range of dim sum, potstickers, egg rolls, pan fried noodles, vegetables, rice, etc.
Then there is the pasta bar, where you can fresh pick your ingredients and it’s made right in front of you. You can pick from a choice of 3 sauces: Marinara, Pesto, and Alfredo.
This is one of a kind, an Alfredo Penne with mushrooms, tomatoes, diced chicken breasts, bacon, bay shrimps, and cheese. It was very hearty and hot!
There is also a Mongolian grill, which you can pick your meats, vegetables, and sauces and it’s also grilled right in front of you. This was a little disappointing because it was way too dry. I think the chefs would have been better off if they had controlled the sauces.
In addition, there is the salad bar with an extensive choices of salads and also making your own salad. I didn’t have any, my reasoning was if you’re going to eat at a buffet, you always pick the most valuable things first!
And this is of course the prime rib! They had a variety of meats, including fish fillets, rotisserie chicken, prime rib, and a whole bunch more! I think I had 3 of these alone! In addition to that, I really like their Au Jus. The gravy was a bit too thick, but the Au Jus was perfect.
In addition, they also seemed to be having some sort of Oktoberfest (German) dishes as well. Though it wasn’t October anymore. They were alright.
The chowder was very creamy, but not too thick that I’d have a heart attack after. Full of flavours, but that could possibly be the cream.
After all that has been done, comes the most attractive part of the meal: desserts! There are quite a selection of desserts here. From pies, cakes, to ice-creams. There are even toppings here for your ice-cream.
Most of the desserts are behind glass, I guess this is less clumsy for people to cut large pieces of cake, as most of the cakes are pre-sliced. Not so great for presentation, but it gets the job done. This particular cake was pretty good, not too sweet but got its kick to it. The raspberry gel was a nice addition to the cake.
Overall, the Eagles Buffet wasn’t too bad. There are a few hits and misses. You just have to choose wisely on what to pick. And if you don’t mind walking into a smokey casino then it is fine. Prepare to wait in-line during prime lunch/dinner times and of course, the weekend where most Canadians go down and do their shoppings.
