Time of visit: Brunch on a Saturday
Cost: $17.95 (adults) $10.45 (ages 2-10)
Location: Tulalip, WA
Food: The Eagles buffet offers a mouth-watering selection of food, from the typical roasts, baked goods, and salad bar, to uncommon items such as a 14-flavor ice cream bar, a cake/pie stand, and a Mongolian u-pick grill. Variety was no problem here.
For my first plate, I had wild sockeye salmon, roast beef, mashed potatoes, vegetables, and some blackberries. The roast beef was perfectly cooked and perhaps the best I’ve had at a buffet. My main goal for this visit was to try their desserts, therefore I found it justified to also get 3 scoops of ice cream and a banana cream pie.
For ice cream, I had a possession point (salted caramel with butterfingers and a touch of black pepper) which was a truly unique flavor that I very much enjoyed, a cherry almond fudge ripple where almond was a nice touch, and a raspberry velvet cake with cream cheese icing which I liked the least out of the three. They also offer waffle bowls upon request and a topping bar which has sprinkles, oreos, chocolate chips, gummies, hot fudge, caramel, and whip cream. Another notable thing is that they also make root beer floats! Unfortunately, I didn’t have enough room in my stomach to try.
Location: The Eagles buffet is located in the Tulalip Resort beside Seattle Premium Outlets in Washington. It is located in the casino, which allows smoking indoors, meaning that you will be inhaling second hand smokes while you line up and while you’re eating. If this is a problem, I would not recommend this buffet. As well, the waiting line can get quite long at peak lunch hours and especially during weekends.
I recommend paying Eagles buffet a visit when visiting Seattle as it is definitely worth the price. For only $18, you get to choose from an ice cream bar, a Mongolian grill, a dessert bar, a variety of roasts, a soup and salad bar, and a breakfast bar. HOWEVER, the smell of cigarettes may be a bother for some.
