How to Get There
It was the only place where we knew the food would be good.
Not as good as my own roasted turkey and baked squash with maple syrup & butter, and baked potatoes with sour cream, and turkey jus de jour, and mashed sweet potatoes with ginger & maple syrup, and green peas with butter & black pepper, and iced tea with lemon....BUT!
But, The Majestic has had some really fine chefs, all of whom seemed to care about not only how they prepared food but also how they procured the fresh fish or locally sourced meats and poultry that went into their various dishes. The veggies were usually good too---hopefully they were also locally grown and organic!
The Navigator just did NOT want me to spend all Christmas day cooking. Meanwhile, I just wanted a really well prepared meal---but I prefer roasted turkey to anything else at Christmas.
Nothing else comes close to a farm-raised turkey who has spent its time outside on a small farm, coming into a large turkey coop only at night--for safety's sake. I grew up in farming country. Everything I ate as a kid we fished for in our lake or hunted around our lake, or barted for with the local farmers, or grew in our own garden.
Nothing like home grown food. Nothing like home made meals. REAL HOME MADE!!!! At one's own home! Not the pretend "home-made" as advertised by slick promotional ads on TV. Nope! I'm talking about the real McCoy! Made from scratch food! Like I make. At home.
But--The Navigator insisted so, we went to the Majestic for their Wild Alaskan Salmon and veggies instead.
The Pan-seared salmon is only good when it is more that just "seared". It should be cooked right through so that it flakes onto your fork. It should be moist so that it melts in your mouth. It should be well seasoned with either maple syrup and black pepper, or with a citrus and butter sauce in which to simmer until done. I had wild Alaskan salmon done in a butter and grapefruit juice mixture once that was excellent, but the chef did not share his recipe with me., I can still taste that dish. It was wonderful.
The best thing about The Majestic is that it is quiet! The tables are set far enough apart that you don't have to listen to others conversations nor are you assaulted by waves of "MUZAK" that passes for soothing melodies.
The other thing I appreciate is that the chef or chefs usually care about what they do in that kitchen, behind closed doors. I trust that they will give it their best shot.
The servers are usually sweet young people who try to be accommodating, though they tend to serve more of us OLD FOLKS that anyone in their own age-group.
We always inquire as to the well-being of the young people who serve our table. We know that many staff at restaurants on any holiday, especially on Christmas, are hard pressed to tend to their own lives' demands let alone pay attention to their customers, with whom they have very little in common. Some of our table servers come from as far away as Oak Harbour or Burlinton. On dark winter nights, it is a nail-biter to get back home in one piece, if the weather turns ugly, as it often does this time of year.
So, dear people! If you ever join us for a meal at The Majestic at Christmas, do remember that everyone who looks after you both behind those closed kitchen doors, at the front desk, or in the dining room--all of these individuals have lives of their own--what they do for us at CHRISTMAS is above and beyond the call of duty. If they serve you with a smile, and if the food is good, and if the receipt comes back with a fair price, open up that bill-fold and hand them all a really good CHRISTMAS tip--they deserve every penny!
With thanks to the Majestic for another fine Christmas Dinner. As good as it gets that time of year.
Homely and pleasant hotel. Nice and large room with a lot of natural light from outside. The view from the windows is like looking at a scene from an old movie. The restaurant's design is beautiful. We had an exceptional dinner but a little expensive. The stuff was very kind and helpful. A lovely room on the rooftop to see the panoramic view, read a book and have a drink on the sunset.
We really enjoyed our stay at the Majestic. We stayed in the old section and our room was large and airy. Loved the working radiators. Our bed was most comfortable and we had everything needed for our stay: fast internet, hair dryer, mini frig, nice towels, iron. The service here at the Majestic was top tier. Extremely friendly, very helpful....everyone...from the maids to the bartender...excellent service. We also enjoyed the spa....my wife and I had the most relaxing massage imaginable. The location is smack dab in the middle of town, close to restaurants and shops. The only downside for us was the thin walls. Someone above us had the need to walk and walk he/she did...clomp, clomp, clomp. It was like they had just opened up a new pedometer for Christmas and wanted to get in 10,000 steps before they slept. And next door to us was the snorer from hell. But we were tired and eventually fell asleep. Overall we loved this hotel and should we return to Anacortes, we will definitely stay here.
We have been very pleased with the quality of the food and inventiveness of the chef at the restaurant at the Majestic Inn in the past. The presentation felt a bit like a restaurant would in Paris. We made reservations for Dinner on the evening of Christmas day, 2018 for my Wife and I and another couple, expecting a wonderful feed. We left very disappointed.
There was a fixed menu from which one could order entree, plat, and desert for $49, or a la carte. Since the filet was priced at $38 we all chose the menu. Three of us ordered the filet mignon, medium rare, and one the salmon.
Now I know we were not in Paris, so was not surprised there was no amuse bouche to start things off, but were disappointed that there was no bread served; not even a bread plate in the setting. The salads were edible and nicely plated, but the main course was served on a regular plate with a small piece of meat in the middle, two small carrots (smoked and baked, so they did have some flavor) a few snow peas and a smear of white and brown sauces to fill the blank white portions of the plate. My steak was well done, dry and tasteless. One other steak did have a tiny flush of pink in the center of the thickest part, but was still tiny and tough. When we mentioned how overdone the meat was to the waitress, we only got a blank look and no offer of a do-over.
Our panna cotta deserts were served in champagne glasses with a few strawberries on top, but the consistency of the custard was not light and fluffy as expected, but more like biting a rubber snail. Of course we really did not expect mignardises to finish off the meal, but we were not even offered coffee.
To add insult to injury, there was a mandatory 20% tip added to the bill, so that with taxes we paid about $60 per person, without drinks, for a less than acceptable meal. Perhaps we expected too much for a holiday meal on a holiday, but somehow hoped that the restaurant would try to outdo themselves to be memorable.
Amazing chef and staff!!! Cheyenne always makes us feel special. The salmon was a triumph, and the filet mignon was tender and perfectly prepared. The mollton chocolate cake with peppermint ice cream was a bit of heaven on earth. We will be back soon!!
