My husband and I and family members have visited this restaurant for brunch and dinner on about 5 occasions over the years. It has a very nice interior, friendly staff, decent service but it is not the first, second or third place we ever think of going for a meal despite it being close. The breakfast scramble is good though a large amount of big chunks of bell pepper are added. We've ordered dinner once which was okay and I ordered a glass of wine which was warm, not even room temperature. I realize this is not Fine Dining but warm wine is not good and would be better stored in the air conditioned dining rooms. It might be a good place for a burger or an omelette. We have not tried their curry which seems to have several very positive ratings here on tripadvisor.

Thank you for your feed back.

We do serve our White wines chilled and our Reds at room temperature.
Sorry about too much bell peppers. We can always cut back or take them out completely. Just let us know.

We have an extensive menu offering American, Pakistani and Indian cuisines. We have owned Boondockers for over 20 years, first in Lake Stevens and now Marysville.

Please come back and try our curries and kabobs.

Thank you for listening.

Tried for first time for Valentine's not the best idea. Had to ask for water which came in a pretty small glass. Had to ask for bread when the other tables had theirs. Steak was cooked correct but portion of carrots and potatoes was pretty small for the price of $60 for 2 people. Dessert looked good but had no lemon flavor in the custard. Couldn't talk with hubby because the live music was way too lound for the small room. Probably won't go back

We are sorry you were not satisfied with our 5 Course Valentine's Day Special Dinner for 2. This dinner included free live music of the 70's, 80's and 90's.

The dinner for 2 included 2 glasses of wine or Champagne, Choice of entree, soup or salad, a dinner side and a house made dessert to share. The entree choices included, a Filet Mignon Steak, Lamb Chops or Crab Stuffed Prawns.

The price for this dinner with live music was 60.00 per couple.

Sorry, we serve water only on request. We would have been happy to give you a larger glass.

As for the vegetables, we would have given you more if you had let us know your desire.

As for music, we had promoted it as songs from the last 30 years. Sorry, it was not quiet instrumental music.

I noticed you have an almost identical review on Google under the name Cheryl Renar. I recall when you came in that Valentine's evening, we were super busy and sold out. It seems you had a reservation but for the wrong day. Your reservation was for Saturday the 15, which was the day after Valentine's. Yet, we happily accommodated your party and seated you right away.

Again, we are very sorry with your experience. Please do come back and give us another try. We have a great menu with lots of choices.

Thank you for listening.

If you like curry and naan bread this is the place! Be careful, I like spicy hot but ordered my curry medium and it was plenty hot. Great food, great service. Go eat there.

This place is one of the hidden gems in Marysville, WA. There is a great variety of food on the menu. The Indian food is very authentic. But the Hamburgers are just as good. My Husband had the Corned beef hash and it was excellent. I always enjoy the spinach Omelet. Everything is fresh, which is nice, and the Soups are home made. Very good service, the owner and his wife are friendly and accommodating. The place is spotless, the bathroom was very clean as well. Give this place a try. They are offering a special Valentine's dinner, so check it out!
