Decent Food But A Little Pricey

We are bicycle touring in the northwest. We have eaten at hundreds of these family owned cafes over the years. This is average at best; nothing exceptional. The sandwich was good but a little thin on the turkey. Usually you have to squeeze the sandwich for all the sandwich meat restaurants put into... read more

On the plus side, our server was very friendly. The owner (I assume) came around to ask how we were doing. However, I didn't have ye heart to tell him that my elk stroganoff was in edible (over cooked pasta and inconsistent seasoning). Two in my party had buffalo burgers which were mediocre ( we have had excellent buffalo burgers... More

Wow! Sounds like you had a bad day! Are you some kind of food critic with bad grammar? If I was right by your table, why did you not tell me about your problems? I suggest you go back to the restaurant that serves you excellent buffalo burgers! Please don't send any of our customers next door as the Post... More

Lovely restaurant, and as it was a hot day, we chose to eat on the patio. The waitresses were lovely, worked very hard, and gave the real sense that we were the guests. Food was delicious.

I appreciate the 3 STAR review, however I'm a little confused about how your review is all over the place! You heard that I'm a little abrasive, but you didn't talk to me! You heard we were out of buffalo burgers, but you really didn't want one! You think the sandwich should have an inch opr more of lunch meat... More

We stopped here after hiking in North Cascades National Park. We were starving and looking forward to a nice meal. It started out poorly as we got in the door and went downhill from there. There was a definite language barrier between us and our waitress, we would ask questions about the menu and would get answers that did not... More

The waitress you had was A Russian college student who comes to work here to improve her English and to learn about the American culture! You seem to have quite a few complaints!

After a hard day on the trail, there's nothing better than a relaxed meal on a shady patio. That's what we got from the Buffalo Run Restaurant. Awesome bison burgers. Delightful Eastern European summer staff server. Good local craft beer. Pleasant chat with Marshall, the owner who sat down and told us his story.

This is a small quaint restaurant. We sat outside in lots of shade. The variety of burgers was great. I had a llama burger, which was tasty and my husband had a buffalo burger. It was good value.

My favorite was shrimp and fish plus you get fries, cold slaw and my husband had the fish of the day. We came back and my husband loved his Elk Burger and my favorite lunch, grilled cheese on sourdough. I'm ready to go back. The outside area was so beautiful, so relax and enjoy it.

This is a really cute place, located on Highway 20, in a beautiful wooded setting with a great outdoor seating area. The staff was really friendly. It's really difficult traveling in the car with a toddler so being seated fairly quickly was really helpful. The food was really great and I love my buffalo burger! This is definitely one of...

I visited this place for the second time, thinking the first was an anomaly. It was not. After ordering our :meal", there was a long, long wait for it to be served. The portions are small and very overpriced for what it is. The major problem was the staff, they are rude and unfriendly, and do not seem to be... More

You talk about Washington being an "open carry state" however you don't know the law very good and I suggest you do a little more research! It is an open carry state, but that doesn't mean you can go where ever you feel like, while you are packing! Here is a piece I copied for your benefit, "Private property owners... More

Greeted by signs reading, wait to be seated. Only two tables occupied but we still had to wait a few minutes before the waitress could seat us. This despite a female, who we presume to be management, was just standing there. We let her know we would like to eat outside. Instead of escorting us to one of the many... More

If we let everyone just walk in and sit where ever they choose, we wouldn't know who had their orders taken and who was waiting! Sorry you don't like the way we operate, but we have been doing so for 21 years! Maybe you should buy a restaurant and try your method! You rated us a one star for having... More
