Our Story

We initially opened our restaurant in October 1994, in a new building we had constructed on the shore of Silver Lake. The property was formerly known as the “Silver Beach Resort”, a private park dating back to the early 1930′s. Prior to this restaurant, we had The Seahorse, a full service restaurant in Mukilteo, from 1978 until 1994. We have over 30 years in the hospitality business in Snohomish County.


In early November 2009 Emory & Molly had just returned from a trip to Europe with friends and fellow restaurateurs Claude & Janet Faure (Charles At Smuggler’s Cove French Restaurant in Mukilteo). Two days after their return, and what was to be the first day back to the restaurant, they were awakened by a phone call from the alarm monitoring service at 4AM alerting of a fire alarm activated at the restaurant. Upon arriving at the property just after 4:30am, they found the restaurant fully engulfed in flames and being fought by several battalions from the Everett Fire Department. The building and twenty years of effort became a total loss in front of their eyes.


We wanted to create a comfortable Northwest lodge-feeling restaurant with high open beam ceilings and stone fireplaces. We wanted to also become a more relaxed neighborhood establishment for more frequent visits, and to feel like you are at home with friends.


We want your experience at Emory’s Lakeside Bistro and Bar to be positive. Our goal is that in every interaction, every order we serve, and every experience you have with us that we meet or exceed your expectations. When we miss that mark, we hope that you give us an opportunity to make it right. Please do not ever hesitate to ask to speak with a manager. We want to be your choice in neighborhood dining and your place away from home. Pleasant dining!

Giving Back

Donation Requests

Emory’s thrives because of the support we receive from our community and we make a strong effort to give back through charitable contributions.

Each year we budget for donations because of the tremendous number of requests we receive. A majority of our donations go toward our partnership with Housing Hope at our annual “An Evening at Emory’s for ChildHope”, along with Providence General Foundation to name a few.
