My husband and I eat lunch here every couple of months. We decided to return today, and it wasn't a very positive experience. First of all, the sign in the lobby says to seat yourself in the dining room. We entered the dining room and sat at our favorite table. We were literally the ONLY people in the room, so... More

This review is for the bar only. A great quite place when happy hour starts at 3pm. Great to meet friend for a beer and lookout at the golf course. A great attentive and friendly staff.

The first time we came here we couldn't get waited on no matter how much we tried. Now we love the place! The service is spot on and the food is good!! They are very amenable to any special requests as well. We go every Sunday now. Worth a try!!

A spur of the moment visit. I have business lunches there from time to time, and the food has always been good but the service spotty. Tonight the food was very good, the service solid. But there were only a couple other people in the dining room with us, although the bar next door was pretty busy. The 1/2 chicken... More

I eat here on occasion but haven't been for a few months. They have a new menu. I ordered the Tuesday special, three tacos and requested corn tortillas. It arrived as two tacos on flour tortillas. I reminded the waitress I'd ordered corn tortillas and she apologized and took them. My plate was returned as three tacos on corn tortillas.... More

My friends and I go somewhere for breakfast every Sunday. Dinner last Friday was delightful with Daniel as our waiter! The food was good, the prices reasonable, and Daniel made it a great experience. We went back on Sunday for Breakfast and we tried everything to get some service. I was there 15 minutes before finally going and asking for... More

I have eaten here many times. Sometimes the food is great other times it is not. The people who work here are nice but sometimes the service is slow. I like the restaurant but find that it is uneven. The breakfasts are good.

We often go here for breakfast and usually enjoy it very much. Lately the service has not been so good. It seems that the less crowded it is the poorer the service. We like the Belgian waffle with hot syrup and sometimes with pecans. The last time there they were kind of soggy, cooked through but not great. We asked... More

Fri Jul 22, 2016 We joined 5 friends for dinner at one of their favorite places for dinner near Olympia. Each of us ordered a different item so I got to see and taste each of them. Atmosphere was upbeat. Dana got the salmon which looked very good. Servings were generous and flavors were right on. Service was good too.... More

Just so so. Caters more to bar patrons. Eating areas are subject to the bar noise. Good for Golfers in Spring and summer as it provides a nice covered outdoor area.
