Are you driving on the I90 and you are looking for a nice lunch, I can recommend the ahi tuna salad. Well cooked tuna and nice green salad with a good crunch in it.

Found this restaurant through Trip Advisor when we overnighted on a recent trip to the Seattle area. Neat atmosphere, interesting two-seat booths with beautiful glass dividers containing wood art. Reasonably priced and good service. Food was delicious. We will eat here again on our next trip.

This is a pleasant restaurant with a little history displayed in restored historical building. Mickey our waiter was wonderful and had a great sense of humor. Our steak had great flavor but disappointed in the quality as it was quite chewy and veggies were overcooked.

Looking for a Sunday morning breakfast stop last week, and The Palace filled the bill. Good service, good food, good coffee. Couldn't ask for anything else.

This is an interesting space in an old building and has lots of memorabilia on the walls. The staff is friendly and the service is prompt. The food is generic, commercial food. The frozen hash browns are from a box and tasted bitter like cheap oil. The meats are undoubtedly from large confined animal feeding operations and thus laden with... More

Nice place. We were just passing through and didn't want fast food. My husbands Ruben was very good. My cheeseburger had all the makings of a great burger but the meat seemed like a basic pre-made patty. Waitress was great.

Downtown Ellensburg, nice historic location. Stopped for lunch on Labor Day weekend. There was a Rodeo in town, and Dave Matthews Band was playing the Gorge all weekend, so we waited about 25 minutes for a table at 12:30pm. The sandwiches and soups we had for lunch were very good and the portion sizes were also nice size. There were... More

I met a dear friend here for lunch. Neither of us had been here before, but we will return. It was a pleasant experience. The food was very good and the waitress very nice and friendly and always had a smile. She returned several times to see if we were doing alright. I loved all the interesting decorations on the...
