Rustlers and Jakes open in Lynden

Two Local Restaurants in Lynden are changing owners and are going through changes. New owners and a new name.

Dutch Mothers Restaurant has been sold, and Jake’s Western Grill is reopening, as Jake’s.

Dutch Mother’s Family Restaurant owners Dave and Debbie Black recently sold the Restaurant to Rusty Wagon owner Kevin Suetz . We look forward to the exciting changes that will come, including a new name and feel! Dutch Mother’s will remain open during this transition. The transition will take place on January 1. Rusty Wagon has been one of our favorite places to dine, either for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. We usually pick Rusty Wagon. So with these changes, we are excited to see what Kevin’s vision will be for the Restaurant.

The Restaurant, inside a 100+-year-old building, has been in operation since the 1980s. It is a gathering place for locals, visitors and is family-friendly. Their customers love the unique Dutch themed rooms celebrating our Dutch and agricultural heritage here in Lynden along with the great food.

They are well known for their Pannekoeken, a Dutch pancake that is a pancake style with origins in the Netherlands. Pannenkoeken is usually larger and much thinner than American pancakes. One of my favorites on the menu.  The name of the new restaurant is called Rustlers.

And another recent Restaurant, Jake’s, is reopening as Brian and Tanya Poag return to run the Restaurant they had as Jake’s Western Grill for 10 years after selling it in 2017. The Grand Opening is Tuesday, November 19 at 8114 Guide Meridian. Brian and Tayna will be serving fresh-made meals with Southern Hospitality. The menu will include beef brisket, pulled pork, and baby back ribs. They have remodeled the interior as they want a new look to the Jake’s.

Jake’s will be open from 11 am-9 pm Monday through Thursday, 11 am-10 pm Friday and Saturday. Sundays hours are from 11 am to 8 pm. They will offer take-out orders, which is excellent if you want to come back to your room here at the Oostema Farmstead Inn and enjoy your meal at your leisure.  Jake’s  phone number is 360-656-6332
