The day after Valentines day

We have always loved coming here for the past 15 years for breakfast, which really is great! I am a huge fan of service though and the wait staff (not the kitchen staff) seemed to only have one pace, and that was pretty slow. Sad too, because that can sure make or break the experience. Haven't... read more

We always come here for ice festival. The food is great and the drinks are good. Friendly service. We make it a point to stop here every year.

The bar at the Tumwater is very quaint. We had a young lady one night as the bartender. She served drinks, took food orders and served them, and in between, she played the piano and led the bar in Christmas songs. She was amazing.

While not our first trip to Leavenworth, it was our first trip to this restaurant and it won't be our last. While all the restaurants on Front St were crowded, this restaurant had immediate seating although it is only one block away. I recommend the hamburgers and fries. My wife really enjoyed her soup and sandwich combo. Prices were totally... More

Walking around this cute little town & was ready for a bite to eat. We stopped in this place and were seated quickly in a vinyl booth with a plastic fern hanging above our head from a crochet 1970's plant swing. From there I was handed a menu that was very sticky, my silverware was dirty but worse was the... More

My husband and I had never been to Leavenworth, WA before, I highly recommend this Tumwater Inn Restaurant. I don't know if the service or the food was the best, I was impressed with both, The prices are very reasonable especially for this type of resort town. The menu had alot of authentic German flavors to choose from. The atmosphere... More

This cafe was recommended by our hotel and we know why. Food was good, quick and reasonable. There was a good variety of meals to choose from. We had the prime rib and Jäger Schnitzel and both were tasty. Our waitress Annie was inviting, informative and she made our dinner a pleasurable experience. Kudos to her.

What a waste of our time! Had only one night in this cute town and picked this restaurant to eat because of other review. Absolutely should have gone somewhere else. The food was just ok, our servers were nice. But the entire mood of the evening was spoiled by that nasty woman wearing a green shirt.

We were lookimg for a place to eat that had soups and sandwiches. It was midday so we didn't find too many that were open at that time of the day. After looking at their menu list outside of the front door, we opted to try them out. They have a very complete menu. We found their bean & ham... More

My cousin and I ate at this restaurant twice during a recent trip to Leavenworth. The service is quick and friendly. The menu offers many options, including the requisite German-type dishes. You can leave this restaurant feeling well-fed without spending a great deal of money.
