So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish….



For those that haven’t heard, Stuff What I Like ~ an eclectic grillery, closed it’s doors at┬áthe end of november 2012.

We had a wonderful time serving the best customers around Everett! But the restaurant business is a tough one and we didn’t have any big corporations or rich Uncles backing us up. We held out as long as we could and we are sad to see the end. Our big fans are loyal and devastated. We vow that as soon as we win the lotto we will open up again, but probably in Seattle. ­čÖé

thanks again for all your support and love.

Meet the Owners


Shawn Lloyd and Cynthia Gaub have lived in Everett for the past 9 years. They enjoy food, eating out and watching the Food Network. They both dreamed of some day owning their own Bed and Breakfast… “when they retired” was the thought.

But when Shawn was laid off from his job as a Software Engineer at Microsoft in early 2011, the plan was hatched to do something new with this food dream. So the researching and planning began. In June 2011 the location on Colby was found and the two spent the summer remodelling and reworking the kitchen and dining room.

The restaurant opened in September 2011 with an art opening and the two were surrounded by friends and family.

┬áThe menu started with Shawn’s roots in Saipan. Micronesian foods, recipes handed down from his mother, anchored the menu with grilled chicken, spam fried rice and more unique eats. With the lava rick grill in the kitchen, Shawn turned his thoughts to other foods to grill. He was drawn to the idea of unique burgers made from unusual game meats, not found anywhere else. With customer feedback the game meats quickly bacame the bulk of the menu. Since opening the restaurant has featured venison, yak, bison, antelope, caribou, elk, kangaroo, frog legs, wild boar and lamb.
