Sometimes Fate Steps In

There was a grassfire along a stretch of the interstate and traffic was backed up a long way. We had been traveling for some time that day and were still 60 miles away from home. So we pulled off the freeway and decided to have dinner in Lacey while the traffic problem got sorted out. The... read more

Food was bland, wait staff slow due to managing too many tables, price does not match quality. Wouldn't go there again.

We had a group dinner here and the food and service were both poor. The servers tried, but it was just too busy for them. The salmon was stated to be "grilled to perfection" but was dry and crusty, even though this is salmon country!

Good American food, some healthy vegetable sides available. Wait service understaffed? We waited a while to get service, or to have the next part of service happen. Waitstaff was friendly and very helpful besides the waiting periods.

A popular place for locals, and travelers alike. They offer a variety of American food for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and at any time of the day. You are welcomed right away by friendly staff, the place was clean. They have big TVs (sport channels, and not too loud), if you care about it. Members of my party had steak,... More

Hawks Prairie has been open for many decades and is still doing a good job. This time we stopped with my mother. My mother had the Petite Entree Chicken Friend Steak and ate it all. My wife had Chicken Madeira and also liked it. I had the HP 10oz Ranch Steak and also enjoyed it.

The service is great here and the place was packed this was impressive! I ordered the lite calorie item, it is what it is. Lol. Lite calorie, not that impressive, no fault of the restaurant. I was envious of my neighbors plate biscuits and gravy, should have ordered that!

I love this place for breakfast--any time of the day. However, their standard dinner menu while not very imaginative has items on it that you dont see very often any more. Like pork chops, they have them even for breakfast. We even went on mother's day--they took a reservation. Food is always good quality, good amount, not imaginative but think... More

When we moved to the area 35 years ago, the restaurant was new. It has always been a comfortable place to eat. Breakfasts have been a special favorite. Lots of food, well prepared. Dinners seem to be expanding in offering. A recent dinner of prime rib was cooked to order. Especially welcome were the choices of side dishes; vegetables were... More
