LiGood Food. Nice People. Place was packed. Great wine Cool ecelectic little place in Liberty Lake. But, the COFFEE WAS HORRIBLE. The whole meal was really fantastic except the coffee. I don't know why so many places get the coffee so wrong. It's the last thing you consume before walking out the door. The profitability is huge. And an investment... More

We received a very generous gift certificate upon moving into the area from a friend. We were a little leery as the restaurant is located in the same parking lot as a gas station. DON’T LET THIS DETER YOU FROM GOING TO THIS RESTAURANT. The ambiance wasn’t bad, there is no real view, but the food is EXCELLENT. Go, eat,... More

We were introduced to Hay J's be a friend, and have been back several times introducing more of our friends to this great dining experience. What it lacks in scenic views are more than made up for in the consistent quality of the food, wonderful atmosphere, and the fantastic service. 5 stars across the board. Prices are absolutely fair.

We were passing through and were staying at the Best Western nearby. The restaurant was subdued from the outside, but exceptional ambiance inside. We did not have a reservation on a Thursday night and were seated immediately. The server was police and attentive. The food is inventive and delicious, albeit pricey. It is the type of restaurant to celebrate an... More

My wife and I stopped in here for dinner and had to try the halibut because the reviews seemed too good to be true. They are not wrong, it is vey very good. We showed up at 5:30PM on a Saturday night with no reservation, as we were traveling, and they found us a nice table and sat us right... More

On our return trip to Seattle from Banff, my wife and I stopped in Liberty Lake for the night. After reading the positive TripAdvisor reviews about the halibut at Hay J's Bistro in Liberty Lake, my wife wanted to give it a try. I must state that my wife has searched the Pacific Northwest for the past two years looking... More

Don't let the location, next to a gas station, or the restaurant's store front, deter you from eating at Hay J's Bistro! Simply said the menu offers a nice variety, staff are warm & friendly, and the food is outstanding.

Went here last night for a birthday celebration and it was great! The seafood chowder was exceptional. Had the parmesan encrusted halibut and it amazing! There was another party there as well, which added to the noise level. Highly recommend reservations and don't let the location surprise you!

Dressing a little nicer for this eatery would be appropriate. Really nice atmosphere. Like a prior review said make a reservation & ask for a seat in the corner( its loud) (side note: the noise could easily be fixed we decorative sound panels & a few strategically placed rugs.) Oh & if you are staying at the Best Western don't... More

A friend and I just enjoyed a fabulous lunch at Hay J's Bistro. I love to meet girlfriends there for lunch and yesterday they exceeded all my expectations and previous visits so I had to write again. Hay J's is a very popular place and is small so I recommend making a reservation for lunch or dinner. It can be... More
