The salmon is great, if you're a vegan or have food allergies let the staff no ahead of time.

Come early to find parking! It's extremely hard to find parking by the pier.

More Information



Your 4-hour event includes: A narrated Cruise to Blake Island, steamed clam appetizers upon arrival, a salmon buffet, Native American-inspired dance show, exploration time on the island and a return cruise! *

2013 Tillicum Village Menu*:

Steamed Clams in Nectar

As you disembark the boat, join other guests for a welcoming mug of steamed clams in broth with a touch of butter and onions – delicious! As is tradition at Tillicum, the used shells are crushed under foot to create the beautiful pathway.

*Traditional Alder Baked Salmon *

Savor this centuries-old treat! This salmon, baked around alder wood fires on cedar stakes, is unlike anything you have ever tasted. Taking approximately one hour to bake slowly to perfection, the salmon retains moisture and takes on a wonderful mild flavor unique to this style of cooking. Served with our signature Juniper Berry Seasoning.

*Signature Northwest Stew *

This thick meaty stew consisting of venison, beef and bison is full of flavors married together in a rich veal stock, combined with root vegetables and potatoes for a mouth-watering dish.

*Wild Grain Harvest Rice *

Try this wonderful combination of wild and regular rice, cooked to perfection with onions, garlic and a fragrant vegetable stock.

*Warm Whole Grain Tillicum Bread *

This rich, dark, slightly-sweet bread is made with a hint of molasses – our own private recipe, served warm with butter. So popular, in fact, you can even purchase loaves to take home!

*Field Greens Salad *

Seasonal greens, dried cranberries, sunflower seeds, Oregon blue cheese, with stone ground rosemary dressing or raspberry vinaigrette served on the side.

*Tri-Colored Bean Salad *

A colorful display of marinated creamy-white cannellini beans and bright, fresh green beans tossed with cherry tomatoes, fresh basil and shallots in a red-wine vinaigrette

*Fresh Fruit Salad *

Assorted Melons, Grapes, Strawberries and Pineapple, served with a Strawberry Honey Dipping Sauce

Northwest Dessert Treat

Individual rustic apple pie, served room temperature.

Please note: Vegan entrees are available with advance request. Menu is subject to change without notice.

_Coffee and tea service is provided with your meal at Tillicum Village.

Guests are advised to wear layers, as the weather can be chilly on the water and island.__
