Great Food!

The Edison Inn is the best food in the area. Don't let the ugly exterior discourage you, the food is not typical bar food. I've been here several times in the last few months and I'm careful not to stop when it's too crowded. The service is good, the chef takes time to prepare your food fresh and... read more

We stopped for lunch and they were not serving oysters at that time. I had the Reuben and it was delicious. My wife had a burger and the bun was burnt. The burger was over cooked. Service was good and was a great place to watch the Seahawks play.

While visiting my brother in Bow, we decided to try the Edison Inn. We had noticed that there were always lots of cars there...day and night. We didn't know what to expect since Bow is a very small town with not many options. The crowd was a mixture of ages, most locals. It was lively and fun to be a... More

Stumbled on this town based on a recommendation from a friend and its well worth a visit. Lots of artisans and lots of Harley Davidson's. The Edison Inn was what brought us here and its a good little bar with a decent selection of beer and a sunny garden attached the back. Food was good but not great and the... More

Pub-like atmosphere. Get there early if you want to order the daily specials because they run out. Burgers and tacos are pretty good. A good local hang out.

We were brought here by relatives in Arlington that frequent the restaurant. The service and food are good. The restaurant is a pub type environment.

Have eaten burgers at the Bow Edison for many years. Seen owners come and go. The latest are clueless how to make a real burger. The former owner Gretchen, could help them restore the taste and method she used. Toasting the buns, using the right meat and condiments would make a big difference. Presently the burgers are dry and tasteless.... More

A group of friends and I went there to hear live music. We went early to secure a table and eat dinner. I had ribs, which were the special that day. The ribs were amazing and the amount of food that came with it for $15 was a great deal. I shared half my meal and was still full. I... More

Fair amount of seating inside and in patio area on non-rainy days though finding parking can be quite a challenge. Waitresses seem to come and go with the best ones going for some reason. Beer is always cold and about 6 on tap that I recall with bottled choices as well. Great burgers with choices for sides accepted which is... More

So happy that not much has changed at the Edison Tavern--it had been about 10 years since I'd been there (I moved out of state). Good service, good beer selection, and juicy delicious cheeseburger with homemade chips. On a rainy evening what could be better!! Didn't have time to play shuffleboard but will do it next time!
