New Name (Blue Collar Diner), But Same Good Eats!

This place is one of my favorites for breakfast or lunch when I'm visiting Skamania County on business. Long-time employee recently bought the place, re-named it, but kept the same menu and good quality food. It's your basic American diner food, but they do it consistently well.

We stopped here on a recent ride up FS 25 to Randle and didn't need to shop for lunch! The pancakes are massive, fluffy and light to boot! Excellent service, very reasonable price, friendly folks - well worth a side trip if you're in the area.

Working in the area, and not to many options during the week. But the staff are really nice, and the lunches are good. The soups are excellent. Today (Tue) was beef barley, which I'm not usually a fan of, but this was excellent! So thick you could eat with a fork, nice chuncks of beef and great flavor. The club... More

Love this place. It's a great small-town restaurant feel, where most of the people that come in know each other and the staff. The omelets are awesome, big, and full of stuff. My favorite is the philly steak omelet, unless I get the prime rib omelet. Prices are very reasonable for what you get.

This looks like a little house set back from the road with hard to see signs. Going north, its on the left side of the road. The food is home made there and the atmosphere is quite pleasant. The waitresses are so friendly and accommodating. You will like this place - its not elegant but thats just fine!

I would eat the breakfast here maybe again, but the lunch & dinners we've had, although generous in portion, were only so-so, the kind of meals we regret eating later; sort of Denny's - like.

This place has been operating for years. It is an old fashioned type American diner. Keep with simple fare: Burgers, Bacon & Eggs, French Toast, Grilled Cheese, etc. Their food and service are just what they imply. There is no pretense about what is being offered. Rub elbows with the locals. Ease drop as they chat about hunting, fishing, how... More

I like the food for the price, and the service is ok. Could be a bit cleaner. Deffinitally needs to be refurbished.
