You can dine and enjoy a view of the Tumwater and old beer factory. We have been going to this facility for over 60 years and still consider it a nice place to dine.

We took my mother-in-law to here for her 96th birthday. The family all showed up. There was about 25 of us. All her grandkids and great grandkids were there.

Overlooking the Deschutes River and Tumwater Falls. Right in the center of town but the scenery seems miles away. Large trees, river with salmon, falls. Had a great Northwest shrimp louie and bread pudding. Pricey but a classic old restaurant.

The phone number we used is 360-943-7830, and is the one published in the Olympia phone book. They open at 11 in the morning, so maybe the timing?
