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.

Tough to get in here on the weekends sometimes. It's in a gas station strip mall, but don't let that fool you. These folks can cook! Very, very good food.

We are lucky enough to just live down the street from this restaurant. It is strange that it is located in a strip mall with a gasoline station, but don't be fooled...this is one of the best restaurants in the Spokane area. Service is great, quality of food is second to none, it is seasonal and they also have their... More

Location in a small strip mall type building. We had heard rave reviews from new friends about this restaurant. The service and food was just as we were told it would be - outstanding in every way. Small little bar / waiting area that became quite crowded as the evening wore on. We will be back for our next special... More

Wonderfully prepared food. Many great choices. Good wine. Great service. We went there twice during our three day visit. I enjoyed it every night.

Great food and service. Menu is great but please bring back the mixed grill. One of the best dishes was a beef medallion/halibut mixed grill. With that being said it is a great place to dine.

Hay J's Bistro is hidden in a small strip mall in Liberty Lake. It's easy to drive past (as I have on a number of occasions) but don't. Here is some of the best food you'll find off I-90. I landed there by recommendation of a hotel clerk who assured me the good was good. Oh, it's so much more... More

I had the pleasure of visiting this restaurant for the first time yesterday. This is a gem in the rough. The outside of the building is very deceiving if the inside experience. Our group of three had the crusted halibut, salmon, seafood trio, and calamari. All was delicious and plated to perfection. The non-formally, self taught chef prepares world class... More
