About
Located on scenic Chuckanut Drive (HWY 11) overlooking Samish Bay and the San Juan Islands. We are a casual dining destination restaurant offering great food and exceptional service - all in a beautiful setting. Housed in a manor originally built in 1934, Chuckanut Manor has served Skagit Valley, Bellingham and surrounding areas for over 50 years. With a classic roadhouse supper club feel, we embrace history while constantly striving to bring you new and inventive flavors from the kitchen and bar. Join us for a quick bite to eat and a beer after a hike to oyster dome, a romantic dinner for two, or a holiday family gathering. Come. Sip a glass of wine as the sun sets over the bay and the islands.
