Reliable

I have stopped here several times on my travels through the west side of the Olympic Peninsula. It's a reliable place for basic food to keep you going until the next meal. Locals like it, which is a good sign.

If you are looking for a place near your motel or hotel that's convenient, friendly, and inexpensive, with good standard American diner food, this is your place.

Small town cafe. Not a lot of choices. Locals appear to like it. 4 of us had dinner there. Wait staff was very friendly and attentive. Cost was very fair. Some of our meals ok, some were poor. Mashed potatoes were instant and bad. Cut of steal below average. Probably best to eat breakfast or lunch here and have dinner... More

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!

Nice little family restaurant in Forks, WA. Decent food, I had crab & Shrimp sandwich others had seafood Reuben, special of the day salmon with broccoli salad. Friendly server and fast service, pie for dessert was good.
