#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.
