Savored & Sipped

I've never seen my husband eat so slow. He savored every bite of the New York Strip with a peppercorn demi glaze. It was so delicious,I could've eaten it like soup. Our waiter, Christian, recommended a glass of 'Five Star Cab' to go with it. It's $15 a glass, but so worth it. Again, never seen my... read more

So decided to beat the rush and take my wife out the day before Mother's day. Recently friends and family had raved about Hay J's Bistro. I got a reservation, a must, at least a day before. You will be a little shocked to find the restaurant next to a gas station. You will probably need to park in weeds... More

It's a little bit of an odd spot for such a great restaurant but we were happy we found it. The service staff were excellent and very involved with ensuring you felt welcome and the food was beautifully presented and had great flavours. The menu has terrific selections at very low to reasonable prices. You will be happy you chose... More

This place is a five star restaurant just off the I90 Liberty Lake exit. Probably should make reservations.....they have been discovered! Great atmosphere, great service, family owned and operated, and most of all great food! We are from Oregon and make this our first stop every time we come to visit family. Never been disappointed. Went there tonight and had... More

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.
