After celebrating my husband's birthday here in October, 2016, we returned for Thanksgiving dinner. The place was packed, and the atmosphere was festive and friendly. Although we had made a reservation, we had to wait about 25 minutes for our table, but considering the holiday and the crowd, we weren't too critical. The food was again delicious and served promptly.... More

The food here is good and the prices are fair. What you are paying for is the view of the falls. It is amazing. I have eaten here more than once and have enjoyed it every time.

Went for lunch. Great food but very pricey for lunch. Looks unassuming from the outside and then you walk inside to huge picture windows with a breathtaking view of the Falls.

This restaurant was an unexpected find while staying at a nearby hotel. The restaurant doesn't look special from the front but it overlooks a beautiful waterfall & park area, completely lit up for night viewing as well. Our meal was excellent; the service was very good. Our waitress, Abby, took good care of us, My husband enjoyed his Prime Rib... More

This is the best salmon that I have EVER had! The staff was great. However; my husband was not pleased with his steak!

6 of us had dinner together. The waitress was efficient, came back repeatedly to ask if we needed anything else. We all felt what we ordered was very good. Will return when in Olympia again.

Looking from the outside of this place, you'd never know how gorgeous it is on the inside! The view of the Falls is very pretty any time of year and the interior of the restaurant is warm golden woods that make it very comfortable. The food is fabulous! We have tried several items now and have always been happy. Last... More

This restaurant looks ordinary from the outside. Very nice inside. They offer small plates which was perfect as it was late for us. We had a view of the falls from the window where we dined. It was relaxing and beautiful and our waitress was excellent. Food was also excellent.

We took our friends who were from Ireland there for lunch. The wait staff were friendly and our service was top notch. The view of Tumwater Falls on a sunny day is a special treat and the husband from Ireland was intrigued with the salmon coming up the fish ladder when we took a walk after our meal. We have... More

...or come for the food and stay for the view. Dining on the terrace overlooking small but pretty Tumwater Falls reminded us dining at Niagara Falls...but without the crowd. After a lovely lunch of shrimp and avocado sandwiches with caesar salad, followed by Italian lemon cake and good coffee, we walked off our lunch on the trails surrounding the cascades.... More
