Emory's on Silver Lake / News  / The End of an Era…

The End of an Era…

The end of an era…

Emory Cole opened Emory’s Lake House in May 1994, and so much has happened here in the last 28 years.

From Santa Brunches, Seahawks games on the projector screen, a sushi bar, WoodStone pizza oven, arson, the Sunset Room, weekly events, Housing Hope and other successful charity dinners, Pau Hana deck parties, etc., everyone has a “mEmory”, and the list goes on.

Emory has been in the full service restaurant business for over 44 years. Prior to this location, he owned The Seahorse Restaurant in Mukilteo. Emory also served as mayor of Mukilteo from 1985 to 1989. The Coles have been involved in the Mukilteo and Everett community throughout their careers and have supported many local charitable organizations along the way.

To the start of something good…

Emory and Molly Cole have sold their long-established independent restaurant business, Emory’s on Silver Lake, to Northwest icon restaurant company Mad Anthonys, Inc. Anthony’s has 25 restaurants located in both Washington and Idaho that include Anthonys HomePort, Anthony’s Woodfire Grill, Anthony’s Pier 66, Chinooks, and many others. 

The Coles decided to sell their business and began searching for a well-established, family owned restaurant company. It turned out the Anthonys organization, owned by the Gould family, became the fit the Coles were seeking. Anthony’s has a well-established reputation in the Northwest, and has committed to continue employment of Emory’s restaurant staff. 

Thanks for the memories…

Emory’s on Silver Lake’s last day of operation is on Sunday, February 27. The support throughout the years has been tremendous, and we would not be here without our amazing loyal guests, and all those who have walked through these doors over the years.
