Snohomish County’s restaurants and bars are hoping you’ll enjoy their fare this spring and summer — whether you dine-in or order out.
To encourage folks to order lunch or dinner at their favorite restaurant, or to try a new one, Herald Media and the Port of Everett, along with city and county municipalities, are sponsoring Dine Out Snohomish County.
“We’re excited to bring the first ever Dine Out event to Snohomish County, especially at a time when restaurants need it most,” said Carrie Radcliff, advertising director for Herald Media. Herald Media publishes The Herald Business Journal and The Daily Herald of Everett.
From now through June 30, participating restaurants are offering two-course lunches for $15 and three-course dinners for $30 and/or $45
Dine Out specials are available in-house at the restaurant or as takeout meals.
“It’s been a heck of year for restaurants,” said Cat Soper, Port of Everett spokeswoman. “We really hope to get folks back into the brick-and-mortar restaurants — this is a great opportunity to invest in them and enjoy a meal.”

Here are some of the restaurants that are taking part:
• Q Sushi Bar & Kitchen, 20101 44th Ave. W, Suite E, Lynnwood. On the Dine Out menu: sushi, tempura and traditional Japanese dishes. “We just opened the restaurant in May and we want people to get to know us,” owner Kenny Ma said.
• Shawn O’Donnell’s American Grill and Irish Pub, 122 128th St. SE, Everett. Owner Shawn O’ Donnell Sr. hopes Dine Out Snohomish County will really take off. “We have another location in Spokane, and they have a very successful restaurant week over there. We’d love to see Snohomish County have that kind of success,” O Donnell said. The family-owned restaurant’s Dine Out specials “will include some favorites — corned beef and cabbage, shepherd pie, and fish and chips,” O’Donnell said.
• Double-Barrel Wine Bar and Lounge, 108 Ave. A, Snohomish. “We see this as a great opportunity to jump-start the community after the 2020 situation and encourage people to come out and get back to living,” said Double Barrel owner Carleen Warren. “We’re highlighting our Italian dishes, so our specials will include pasta dishes and a wonderful spaghetti puttanesca,” Warren said.
• Lombardi’s Italian Restaurant, 1620 W Marine View Drive in Everett, and Lombardi’s at Mill Creek, 19409 Bothell-Everett Highway in Bothell. “Many restaurants in Snohomish County have permanently closed or are hanging on by a thread, due to the mandatory pandemic shutdowns,” said Kerri Lonergan-Dreke, CEO of Lombardi’s Italian Restaurants. “We are grateful for the support our restaurants have received during the last 15 months and we greatly appreciate the private/public partnership that has made Dine Out Snohomish County possible.” Both Lombardi’s Snohomish County locations, at the Everett Marina and in Mill Creek, will offer a three-course Italian Supper Club menu with the choice of either a draft beer or a pour of house wine for $3o.
• Jetty Bar & Grille at Hotel Indigo, 1028 13th St. in Everett. “It’s been a difficult year for everyone,” said Mike West, Jetty’s general manager. “It’s good to see signs of life coming back. This is a great opportunity to partner with the city and the county.” The restaurant will offer three specials as part of Dine Out, chef Andrew Cross said. The list includes a soft-shell crab sandwich with deep fried tomatoes and Belgian-style mussels with french fries.
Snohomish County, Everett radio stations KRKO and KXA, and the cities of Arlington, Marysville, Snohomish, Everett, Mukilteo, Edmonds and Lynnwood are also partnering with Herald Media and the Port of Everett to promote Dine Out Snohomish County.
