Three meal helpings

I highly recommend the Big Foot Chicken Fried Steak. I ordered it a couple weeks ago and needed a "to go" box because it was so large. I ate that steak for three meals and it was excellent every time which is a real bargain for such a low price. It can be ordered on the breakfast menu or on... read more

Breakfast included with room. Good selection. No meat but we were told we could ask for it. Ordered bacon which was excellent. However, we were presented with a bill for $1 per slice of bacon and we were not told there would be a charge so we paid $6 for six slices. We were not asked how many slices we... More

My wife & I came here for the first time with some friends recently. I had the "Bigfoot" chicken fried steak, the breading was soggy & not crisp whatsoever, it just fell apart from the meat. Prolly the worst one I have ever had. The veggies that came with it were "killed", the potatoes were alright though. My food was... More

Bagels hard. Eggs all gone. Take a lesson from the Holiday Inn Express in Sequim for free breakfasts.

Breakfast buffet at Red River looked promising when we ate there recently, with a large variety of options - fruit, yogurt, dry cereal, eggs, breakfast bagels with egg/cheese/ham, biscuits & gravy, fresh waffles, toast, etc. plus coffee and juice. Only problem was, the taste wasn't as good as the presentation. The fruit was the usual for December - melon and... More

Seems like this is the area they train new employees so service is spotty sometimes. Food is good and reasonably priced

There really isn't anything wrong with this place except that it has regressed from a restaurant that served some nice dishes including the best braised shortribs and garlic potatoes I've ever had to a short order shop. The menu now consists of sandwiches, burgers, and the usual unimaginative fried fish selections. The seafood platter I had was meager and overfried.... More

We were there late for the breakfast buffet so most of the goodies are gone, but the server was kind enough to ask what we want so she can ask the bring us. I think that was good service. The food was ok. nothing fancy.
