#1767 - Fjord Room, Viking Restaurant, Stanwood, WA - 4/28/2012

I wish I knew the age of the old Viking Restaurant here, in Viking Village on Viking Way. It seems to have served as a classic diner for many years before going out of business several years ago, and being purchased by a couple construction workers and reopened in 2008 or 2009. The front bar seems to dominate now, although classic diner/bar food is available. The structure is huge, with multiple rooms that host things from live music to AA meetings. Many of the walls are covered with murals or vintage photos.

Here we met Jeff, who had been drinking since 10:30am (we arrived around 4pm). Jeff explained to us that he didn't bring his dog that day in case he wound up in jail again, as it saddens him to see his dog carted up while he's in jail.
