We love eating the burgers and prime rib dip. The fries are really delicious. We get very good service every time. This is a great place to get a good steak. We go there often. Breakfast is really good too.

Been here a couple of times. Unfortunately I can't say I've always been impressed with the food. It is a little bland. Maybe I'm just not eating the right dishes!

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.

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.
