Stepping into the Restaurant & Pub at Big Lake Grocery is like traveling back in time. While the local dining spot still retains its mom ‘n’ pop general store on the side, take a look at the bones of the building. Or should we say “buildings?” Big Lake Grocery is actually an amalgam of three different houses that were once owned by the Day Lumber Company – as was the entire town of Big Lake. Over its history, BLG has been a bathhouse, a post office, a laundry, and even a movie house.

In this incarnation, BLG is primarily a warm, friendly, local gathering spot serving hearty homestyle meals all day, along with plenty of Washington brews on tap (as well as all your favorite national and international beers and ales). It’s been family-owned for the last sixteen years, and we’re fully committed to making BLG the favorite hang in Mount Vernon and the Skagit Valley.

So if you’re tooling between Seattle and Bellingham, stop in for breakfast, coffee, a burger or salad, or just a frosty brew served with a smile and a genuine, “How ya doing?” Come visit us and step into a simpler, warmer, friendlier era.

    review rating 5  I have always received wonderful service each time I've been here. I also rented a storage unit behind the store and was so pleased with how easy it was to pay my monthly bill over the phone when I was out of town. Mike Mccoy (sp?) Is such a nice man to work with! I definitely recommend this place!

  • review rating 5  This is my favorite lil community store ever! One time I was making pies and I was out of nutmeg. The beautiful young lady behind the counter said "we don't have any right now." Instead of leaving it at that, she took a little baggy and gave me a little so I could finish making my pies! You just don't see that kind of service any more. EVERYONE who works there is awesome!

    review rating 4  Good old lake store

    thumb Brian McMahan

    review rating 5  Great food, cold beer and plenty of room in the beer garden. This store/pub/restaurant has Friendly's taffeta and everything from soup to propane to outfit the local community. Don't forget the take and bake pizza, some of the best around. A must stop for a "not so out of the way spot".

    review rating 5  Stopped and ate here yesterday- and myself and my teen boys LOVED it! The store is adorable and has all the staple essentials for locals. Beer on tap, 4 booths for lounging, books for reading on the shelves, antique treasures, excellent burgers (and we are connoisseurs...😂) and the service was fantastic! We are lifers now...way to go BLG!

  • review rating 5  Friendly neighborhood one stop shop. Obviously more expensive than bigger stores in town, but the location is convenient if you're on Big Lake and the people are really friendly. Easy go to if you need one or two items and don't want to drive all the way in to town.

    thumb Taylor Wisler

  •   We enjoyed lunch here with a friend who also enjoyed the breakfast. The food is tasty and a good value. They have added salads recently and mine was very fresh.

    thumb Cathey F

      Spicy hot wings and good local beers. New owners. Hope they do well. It's a cool neighborhood hang out.

    thumb Jason G

      If you are looking to purchase a hamburger, a growler of beer, a bottle of wine, a dozen eggs, some shampoo and some fishing worms, this is a perfect place. The selection is fairly limited but everything you could need is there. Staff is friendly...More

  •   This place is awesome! From the outside, you wouldn't know that they serve food. It just looks like a little corner mart. The menu has a great selection (American, Mexican, and breakfast). The food is good and reasonably priced. Check out their specials by the front door - all specials have been good so far. The cordon bleu sandwich is good!

    thumb Brandon T.

      Cute dinner / convenient store. Burgers. Fries, and service outstanding. Dog friendly. Will be back.

    thumb Alix R.

      Awesome place BUT way understaffed for what they offer. 1 cashier is expected to make espresso, serve food, answer phone and ring customers up, which in return results in horrible customer service.

    thumb Brittney S.

      Drove out to Big Lake for a burger, after reading the reviews on Yelp.  I was totally disappointed! The place is not handicap accessible.  Ordered a regular burger with fries and considered the burger totally over-priced, and  very, very mediocre, and the fries were greasy, and half done.  What a waste of time, and gas!

    thumb X X.
  •   What an awesome little hidden gem. If you haven't had a burger from here you haven't lived. This is hands down one of the best burgers around. The service is super friendly and surprisingly they have two nice seating areas plus outdoor seating to relax and enjoy your meal.

    thumb C H.

      I live in Seattle, am surrounded by tons of trendy restaurants, and I still rather eat here at Big Lake Grocery than anywhere else. Their food is mindblowing. It's also nice to pick up convenience store fare before hitting the road or hiking trips. The service has always been super friendly too. My favorite is the Mac and cheese hamburger, while my husband adores their biscuits and gravy. You ought to get a side of fries with whatever you order because those things are also addictive.

    thumb Melissa K.

      Great community location! As a grocery store, they've got all the necessities. Great selection of beer and cider for there or to take in a growler. They also have a small restaurant there too where you can order at the counter. Food is delicious! The chicken strips are seriously so great, and their new breakfast menu is even better. Call ahead and they'll have breakfast waiting for you to grab and go on your way out of Big Lake. In the summer, they have a patio and beer garden. They even do events like beer tastings with breweries! They've got a great little sitting area with TVs and the local paper. Everyone's nice too. Great spot!

    thumb Kandace A.

      Nice little local store. Most of the basics you would need at last minute. They have about 5-6 beers on tap plus a decent beer selection. We just tried their burgers and let me say they are good. I my kids like the chicken strips they have. All they need now is a pizza oven..

    thumb Mitch R.
  •   The staff here is friendly and they have you're basics. It's a mom and pop type of store. It covers most emergency items you would need and then some stuff you don't need but buy anyway. The biggest thing is it will save you a trip into town but it will cost you just as much going in or more.

    thumb Glenn S.

      THE historical big lake grocery! Very proud to be the first review here.

    This is exactly as it seems a small store right on your way to big lake where you know you will always be greeted with a smile and a good laugh.
