You can always tell when food is cooked with love! This restaurant gets an A+ for pleasing everyone at our table. We even had a new convert....my brother in law tasted lamb for the first time in his 49 years, and is ready for his next adventure lol! My seafood chowder was THE best I have ever tasted, and I...

As others have said, this is in a small strip shopping area on E Mission Ave next to a gas station at the roundabout/exit for Liberty Lake. What a find! The Gorgonzola Burger (cabernet demi-glace, gorgonzola cheese & frizzled onions) is an amazing taste explosion! The interior of the restaurant is very nice – casual, nicely decorated, low noise –...

This is a rare find in a small strip by a gas station-but you are in for a huge treat! Best food and lovely interior. It seems a bit out of place for the quality and ambiance, but that's good for those in the know so we can get in.

Every time we go here, it's consistently amazing! THe soups are full of flavor, the salads are dressed in flavors that are unique and fresh...and we never leave disappointed or hungry. Only suggestion for them, is to get a bigger place" the word is getting out!!! Mmmmmmmm

Love this place. Excellent food served in an unassuming location with friendly ambiance. Try the mushroom soup. Amazing!

If you didn't know it was there or hadn't been told about it, you probably would never visit. Amazing food and service with the best inland seafood chowder ever! Having a meat store and wine shop right next door is a big plus to ensure freshness and selection.
