My wife and I visited here on Fathers Day for breakfast (though not to celebrate) so it was busy. We stood at the door for it seemed like 5 minutes before anyone even acknowledged us. Somewhat understandable though. There was a table ready and waiting, wish we could have sat ourselves! The waitress was great, super friendly, super nice, and... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our restaurant. I am am glad we were able to find you and your wife a booth on Father's day. On holidays like Father's Day, we are overwhelmed with reservations and it is extremely hard to accommodate guests without reservations. Please come back and try the rest of our menu. As for... More

I've eaten breakfast here multiple times and the food is always tasty and fast. The service is good and attentive and the restaurant is clean as are the bathroom. It's always been slow but this last visit it was packed which bodes well for its future. Good owners who are polite and give away freebies. I should try dinner as... More

Food is priced well. Food was on the cheap quality side. Appetizer of calamari clearly came out of a freezer and you could buy the same boxed stuff at Fred Meyer. The wine and beers are great. Service is awesome. During dinner they had several belly dancers performing while you ate. Although passing around a tip jar doesn't really mean... More

We stayed at Tulalip Bay Resort and on the last day we were there we decided to check out something else for food. Googled a breakfast place and this came up first. Wow, it was great. It was dead because it was a Wednesday morning but the food was fantastic. The owner was super nice and prompt. Would go here... More

Yummy dinner there tonight. 5 adults and 4 kids and they served us with a smile and a divine dinner. Kids got free bubblegum icecream and we got the yummiest curries we have eaten in a long time. Lovely owners - very attentive. Thoroughly recommend.

I eat at this restaurant regularly and love the owners, who really care about their customers, and doing a good job. Do not be fooled by the "plain restaurant" look - the food is superb. My favorite is the selection of Indian cuisine, and their curries are sumptuous. The desserts are hand made, and the selection is great. In my... More

My husband and I and family members have visited this restaurant for brunch and dinner on about 5 occasions over the years. It has a very nice interior, friendly staff, decent service but it is not the first, second or third place we ever think of going for a meal despite it being close. The breakfast scramble is good though... More

Thank you for your feed back. We do serve our White wines chilled and our Reds at room temperature. Sorry about too much bell peppers. We can always cut back or take them out completely. Just let us know. We have an extensive menu offering American, Pakistani and Indian cuisines. We have owned Boondockers for over 20 years, first in... More

Tried for first time for Valentine's not the best idea. Had to ask for water which came in a pretty small glass. Had to ask for bread when the other tables had theirs. Steak was cooked correct but portion of carrots and potatoes was pretty small for the price of $60 for 2 people. Dessert looked good but had no... More
