The food had a flair that was unexpected in small town Salmon! The menu had everything from pasta to burgers but it was the quality the presentation separated this place from the rest! You won't be disappointed!

I really liked the homemade mushroom soup. The burger was cooked to order, not turned into a hockey puck! My wife's "appetizer" plate was more than enough for a meal for her.

A bite to eat at The Junkyard Bistro is always a good experience! Great soups, salads, sandwiches, rice bowls..all good! The Garlic Burger is a favorite of my husbands, and I can't seem to get away from the Smoked Salmon Sandwich..Highly recommended for a great meal in a fun atmosphere...beer and wine is offered as well!

The Bistro is the best place in town for a late-night bite, for a messy sandwich or entrée that's more ethnic than cold cut, for having a leisurely drink with friends at the bar...and for fabulous cheesecake.

Stopped by based on Trip Advisor. Glad I did. Amazing food. We all had pasta dishes which were all hand made goodness. The beer was cold and local and the barmaid was super friendly. Highly recommended for anyone seeking small town fun.

I have completed extensive travel for the last 2 1/2 months and this has been, by far, the best food experience during my traveling time.

Great food and service! This was recommended to us by the owner of the Syringa Lodge. Had a fantastic salad with fruit and grilled chicken - perfect after a long day of traveling!

The place wS recommended to me by the motel front desk where I was staying. The amvbience, or, more correctly, the absence thereof, put me off as soon as I walked in. In fairness however, when I am on the road, I do place a premium on ambience as a relief from the tedium of eating on the road. The... More

This used to be a bar and still has all the beautiful old wood trappings an old bar would have. Sit at the bar or sit at a table. Beautiful handmade decor that is for sale decorates the walls. In good weather there is outdoor seating. Love everything I have ever had there. Sandwiches are tasty, excellent soup and the... More
