This place was average. Owners are invested, but seemingly a lot of rules. In fact, connected to a hotel that notes you can’t have friends visit or children. Owners were funny, and noted the place needed the money every time you ordered anything. Food was good. Beer was great. Honestly not that memorable, but enjoyed it. 3 of 5 fits.

Here is a great location, has a ice cream shop tacked onto the bar / restaurant area. There are 2 bars, both of them ancient imports from elsewhere in the world, and a hotel above everything. My best guess is that some of the customer interactions as shared by other TA authors have essentially driven away business.

We had the night bar man for our waiter at 1 pm on a Thursday for a nice lunch. The menu is huge so it took time to get all the selections done and the order put in. They do have a bit of a crabby outlook on a couple of things noted on the menu. First they add a dollar to the bill if you intend to pay with a credit card. Really? Is it so tough for you to do business without that? Second, if you are 5 or more people it will be all on one ticket and you can figure out who owes what.

The kitchen did a good job on the food, the fries were exceptionally good. Unfortunately, it took a LONG time to get the food. Then it all came at once which is pretty hard to do and get it right and hot to the table. Other than a bit too much salt on the clam chowder, everyone was happy with the food.

They should have a bit of story about the building, the bar and such to entertain people with as they wait for the food. The bar tender / waiter had some interesting things to say about ghosts in the building that he has encountered late at night when closing up.

Had breakfast outside. Every table needed to be wiped down. There was ash in the air from the area fires, but there was more than that. The wait lady, also an owner we believe, appeared as if she’d been cleaning something greasy or pretty dirty. Breakfast selections were minimal. The food was acceptable, but boring. Also overpriced.

Certainly ok if all other places are closed, but we won’t be back. Too many good places in Chelan!

Just stopped in for ice cream. Line was long, service was relatively slow (only two people serving with a line to the door). However, the ice cream was tasty, and you could order one scoop with two different flavors. A little pricey. Wish they would've had a menu board with the flavors posted up so that you could see what your choices were while standing in line.

Stopped in for a snack and drink during the June Car show. Wasn't busy so really no excuse for the poor service. Slow and somewhat rude (I believe it might have been the owner too, if not at least a manager) She was short and snappy when she spoke to you, took a long time for her to even acknowledge us. Good thing is the patio is pet friendly but it is very narrow. Fries were good. There are so many other great places in Chelan.
