I have been to the Old Edison Inn a number of times. The food is good and the music is always good also. I was most recently there on a "Taco Tuesday" and had the vegetarian burrito. It was excellent. The Old Edison Inn is a winner!

My wife and I were out Eagle watching along the Skagit River Valley and passed through the town of Edison. We saw the Old Edison Cafe, saw the parking lot and restaurant were busy so stopped in. Excellent reviews for the fish/chips and Cole slaw. Good and friendly service. Worth the stop.

What a great old fashioned bar/pub. The food was great and the menu had some great options including really good oysters. It was a great evening including shuffleboard on an old fashioned table. A really cool place with a great vibe. Definitely worth a visit for a fun night out with good food, good beer selection and a fun and... More

Good fried oysters & clam strips. Chili burger special of the night not great! Friendly service, fun old-time tavern atmosphere, good micro-brews, wine by the glass.

My husband and I came here on a rare night without our kids. I've lived in the area for 6 years and we've never stopped in - I'm so glad we did! I had the Black Bean Veggie Burger, it was so delicious. The waitstaff was friendly, and there was a band setting up to play just as we were... More

We were driving country roads when we came across this old bar. We had great food. Loved the atmosphere too. Will make the drive again. Well worth it.

Hubby and I like to take afternoon rides on our motorcycles.. For late lunch early dinners, during our weekends. This bar is one of our favorite spots. It's clean, lots of seating, music isn't loud and obnoxious (then again we haven't been there during live band times-but I'm sure it's fine!;) .. The outside area is pretty small.. I do... More
