Save your money. We live in Eburg and in the last 10 yrs the food has gotten to be almost disgusting. We get the free meal cards at our birthday and anniversaries but we don't even use them anymore. The only think to stay good is the coffee.

We ate an acceptable lunch there on 5/8/14, and our credit card was hit twice for the meal in error, and as of 6/21/14, Palace Café has not corrected the error (left my third phone call request that it be corrected today).

This place has the smallest steaks and chicken breasts I have ever seen any restaurant serve!!! They load your plate up with the sides because the main entree is tiny! They overcharge for the food you receive.

First of all, it's quaint...second, the waitress was so very sweet and helpful and a hometown girl. Now for the food...we had the prime rib which was melt in your mouth delicious and steamed veggies made me feel as if it was ok to eat that whole big prime rib! Ellensburg is adorable, and if you do visit, please have... More

We ate here twice over the last weekend and both times I had the Caprese turkey burger with sweet potato fries. Excellent! My family loved their meals both days as well. Centrally located, historic, great atmosphere and friendly service.

The setting is fairly typical of an older family american style restaurant. Lots of booths, high backs, decorations on the walls etc. We were seated quickly, our order was taken and our drinks and food arrived very fast. The food was typical american style. Large portions with good flavor if somewhat bland. The Palace is a good restaurant to take... More

Nothing fancy, just normal, greasy, college food like burgers and such. Affordable prices and the best fries in Ellensburg.

Breakfast at this place is unbelievable. Lunch however, is completely ho-hum. It's too bad they don't serve breakfast all day long.

I used to enjoy the Palaces' food, yet my last visit here was awful. I ordered a burger with bacon and pepper jack cheese. Nothing particularly special. I've had this same burger here in the past and it was good. Not anymore! They switched to some cheap smoke flavored patties that are thin and overwhelmingly taste like liquid smoke. The... More
