LJ’s Bistro and Bar


Lake Stevens  residents are pretty happy that LJ’s Bistro and Bar has opened its doors at 805 Frontage Rd Lake Stevens, WA


I joined a few friends at LJ’s Bistro and Bar the other night for drinks, food and our usual catch up with what’s going on conversation.  We knew this was a new restaurant and decided to check it out.  


At first glance as I drove up, I was thinking, hmmm, I don’t know… but I entered, sat down and ordered a drink while waiting for my friends.  The wait staff was very friendly from the get-go.  


The atmosphere:  very friendly, the restaurant is a little dark and it was busy!  The place filled up quickly after I arrived but that didn’t interrupt the service we received.  One thing in particular I noticed while there was how everyone that worked there really just jumped in and helped each other out.  I’m not sure I have ever seen so many cheerful employees at a restaurant!


Flavor: This is a Mediterranean inspired cuisine!


The food:  Can you say, Mmmmmmm  and again?  The food was absolutely wonderful! Some may say it could be a little pricey for Lake Stevens, but wow was it GOOD!  Try the Wild Caught Spicy Pepper Prawns - aleppo chile, black pepper and parsley.  All I can say is, WOW!  Don’t let the spicy bit scare you, they are not so spicy you can’t enjoy them, and enjoy you will!  

I also had the White Wine Manila Clams and I have to say I have never had clams that tasted that good!  


Who are they?

LJ’s Bistro and Bar is a family owned and operated business.  Chef Lindsay J is a “Local and classically trained Chef”


So, if you live in Lake Stevens and haven’t checked LJ’s Bistro and Bar out yet, or if you’re driving through the area, GO!

Debbie, LJ's sounds like they have a great menu, I haven't been up there in a few years but I would think a restaurant like this should be a welcome addition.
