The menu(s) are large with so many options. We had breakfast. I had the 8 ounce Chicken Fried Steak with toast, hash browns, and two eggs. I am a big eater and I could not finish. The wife ordered a half portion or biscuits and gravy, which came with hash browns and coffee and she did not come close to... More

Loved the rustic feeling to the place, and the down home cooking was Excellent. The service was excellent, and so was the Yak burger dip that I got there. Highly recommended !!

The Rusty Tractor has good food and friendly, fast service. I had the clam chowder, a salad and a big roll called a cow pie. It was decorated with misc. old farm items and toys on the wall.

The slowest place I have ever eaten. The food was greasy, Our waitress was rude and slow! I will never eat here again. The only thing good was the soda, waist of money.

The worst food I've had in six weeks on the road. Ordered fried chicken...it came and was cold inside, about the same temp as the beer I ordered, which was fine being cold. Waitress apologized and 15 minutes later, received different chicken pieces that were so bad they were inedible. Apologies offered by waitress, who was nice, but no remedy.... More

After a long wait, we finally ordered. The waitress encouraged us to get the rattle snake eggs. She said they were a popular item on the menu and one of her son's personal favorites. We took her advice and were served an envelope on top of a piece of lettuce with a side of ranch. We opened the package to... More

Best place in town to eat. Friendly service and very good "Home Cooking". If you're brave, you can try their Yak dishes!

I've eaten here more than once, it's standard diner fare. Service and food is generally consistent. Had 18 month old granddaughter with us this time and the waitress was very helpful.

We stopped by for breakfast. I ordered 2 pancakes and 2 eggs, while my husband ordered 2 pancakes, 2 eggs, and bacon. The pancakes were huge, more like the size of a plate. I could barely finish one, forget about eating the second one. The waitress was attentive. The meal came quickly. Payment is at the cash register..

Stopped here for lunch on the way from Seattle area to the Oregon Coast. It was a perfectly good diner. I had a generous soup and salad lunch, my husband had the veggie omelette. Reasonable road food, and probably the best choice in the area. I'm recommending but not as a gourmet experience. The wait staff were very friendly and... More
