The community "go to" place

All the locals seem to congregate at the Fairway. Food is good, servings are very large so beware. Not open on Sunday.

Great food. Huge portions. Order the 1/2 size salads or share with someone. Otherwise be sure to ask for a take out box when ordering. Excellent menu items for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Was recommended to try the Monte Cristo sandwich and it was fabulous with flavor. The homemade jam with it was tasty and the portion size was very big. I had to take some home. Cute old time café style and friendly service. The girl who loaded the water and wiped the table wasn't very happy, but the rest was great.

This is a locally owned and operated restaurant. YOU MUST have a meal here when you come to Lynden! Fairways menu is extensive and they even have gluten free choices. Their salads are spectacular - On eof my favorites the Chinese Chicken Salad beautifully presented with fresh lettuce and wonderful pea pods peppers and chicken. Served with crispy wontons on...

Recommended by a nearby quilt shop we headed in for a good, though not necessarily, fancy lunch. We were not disappointed. The Fairway has a "diner" atmosphere, which was just what we wanted...not too fancy and not too "fast foodish." We went for simple...I ordered a "half" taco salad and my wife settled for their clam chowder. It was great.... More

One of the best places to enjoy very good food and plenty of it. Very tasty, help is very friendly and you will probably have to ask for a "doggy bag" since you will for sure get more than you can eat at one setting.

This is your normal American food type resturant. The breakfasts are typical pancakes, eggs, biscuits gravy, ect. The pancakes are great and hang over the plate big! The lunch is normal burger fries, soup, sandwiches. The club is great!! The potato salad used to be good creamy full of flavor then they changed the recipe and now it taste like... More

We love this place. It's kind of the heart of Lynden--a true home town restaurant serving up three meals a day. Nothing fancy but generous portions of hearty well-prepared 'grandma' food (I don't think meatloaf ever leaves the menu)--and I mean that in the best way--fresh coffee going all day long, and waitresses who know most of their customers. There's... More

Heard from a guy I work with who's from Lynden this place is best. He's right, I go in there every time I'm in the area. Great food and service. I go in for breakfast mostly buy I've been in other times too, always good.
