Angel of the Winds Casino Resort is located about 50 miles north of the Greater Seattle Area. If you don’t mind a little drive, head on up to the City of Arlington and to Angel of the Winds. They’ve gone through several renovations over the years and the current facilities are fabulous along with a great selection of restaurants and bars. I’ll take you through each eatery with my recommendations and need-to-know items.
Before we get started, I need to let you know that the buffet at Angel of the Winds Casino was a casualty of the Covid-19 pandemic. It has since been replaced by a new sit down restaurant that we’ll review below.
Lastly, be sure to sign up for Angel of the Winds’ player’s club. Membership is free and you get dining discounts at each of their restaurants and eateries.
Whiskey Prime Steakhouse
Whiskey Prime is Angel of the Winds’ top fine dining restaurant. The decor and ambiance is that of a modern steakhouse. You can expect friendly and fast service along with exceptional quality food at very reasonable prices. The menu features a variety of fresh locally sourced seafood appetizers, salads and soups, USDA Prime steaks with enhancement choices, and other dinner entrees for those looking for something other than steak. They have a fully stocked bar as well so if you’re in the mood for a pre-dinner cocktail, a glass of wine to accompany your steak, or perhaps even a 20-year Tawny Port to finish things off, Whiskey Prime has it.

Taking over for the Riverside Buffet is Playa Bonita, which serves authentic Mexican cuisine to its guests. Located toward the hotel side of the resort and away from gaming, Playa Bonita’s high ceiling and windows providing natural light and gives breath to this space. Perfect for if you need to get away from the casino atmosphere for a bit and refuel with some excellent Mexican food.
The service is super friendly and there are plenty of tables and booth seating for you to relax and enjoy your meal. The menu features all your traditional Mexican foods like tacos, burritos, enchiladas, and quesadillas. Choose from multiple combination dishes if you’re wanting a little of everything. There are salads and soups if you’re looking for something light. Playa Bonita also runs a daily special so be sure to check that out as well.

Jade Fusion brings flavors from China, Japan, Korea, Thailand, Vietnam, and other Asian cuisines to their guests at Angel of the Winds. Favorites you’ve seen many times like teriyaki chicken, Mongolian beef, pad Thai, and General Tso’s chicken are on the menu. However, there are also other Asian dishes like jap chae, dongpo short ribs, and pork belly sisig that venture out from more ‘standard fare.’
It’s a great place to grab a casual meal if you’re looking for some Asian food. The restaurant is open to the casino floor so you’ll get those sounds coming in, but it won’t be too bad. The food is solid, but the desserts are a MUST! My recommendation is the mango cheesecake.
