Just had burgers, which were average. Fries and clam chowder a little above average. Welcoming service. Nothing spectacular, but not bad, either.

While traveling through the Peninsula I stopped here for dinner. The service was great. I ordered the Seafood Fettuccine Alfredo. The bread served was fresh and soft. Salad with dressing on the side. Scallops were tender, everything cooked just right. Owner was delightful to talk to.

We ate here several times while staying in Forks. Great food. The tables are painted with local scenic spots. Thought they were a little pricy, but maybe that's the local going rate for such a nice place. Staff is very friendly.

We had both breakfast and dinner here a couple of times during our stay. The food was good (not great) and fresh. The wait staff was friendly and the place was clean and well kept. Omelets and salads were both good. Much better than the Forks Coffee Shop.

On 5-day trip on the Olympic peninsula, this is the worst meal I've had so far. Instant potatoes, gelatinous gravy and wilted salad. Nothing like home cooking

This establishment is right in the same parking lot as the Pacific Inn Motel that we stay at when in town. They have very good homestyle food and generous portions. the prices are very reasonable and the interior is well maintained. Visit the restroom for a wonderful treat!

There are not many eateries in Forks but this is a good spot to stop. The menu is a bit beyond typical small town with more fish dishes. Service was really good. Meals were so-so.

Enjoyed brunch in this place before heading on Hoh rainforest. Had the breakfast eggs, bacon, hash brown and toast with coffee and it was pretty tasty.

We were staying across the street and so decided to visit the restaurant. It is pleasant inside with a front area and rear dining room. We were seated in about five minutes. It was then almost twenty minutes until we saw the waitress again to order. This place is woefully understaffed. Two waitresses on Monday night that seated customers, took... More
