A little over priced, but nice to have an organic quality meal. Service was good as well. I honestly can't say I was super duper impressed, but I would go back there again for a larger meal.

Went there for lunch. Had gone many years back and it was beautiful and the food was lovely now its a sad sad black hole. The tables were dirty sticky and crusty the chairs had crusted food and crumbs stuck in them. Only the owner and a cook were working so service was slow but at least she was pleasant.... More

This restaurant has been around for ions and has changed hands numerously. The latest being by far the worst! Now one big room with tables scattered here & there, no imagination, no ambiance. Oh the posters on the wall, talk about tacky! Server was rude, couldn't be bothered attending to any needs we may have needed as perhaps filling water... More

The food here was great. Hard to describe, but the atmosphere is a little different from your normal place. Service and food were excellent though.

The service has always been bad. The food was much better at one time. Healthy stuff. The soup is always too salty.

Wow, tried it out again after two quite sub-par visits over the last few years. The server was nice enough, but we waited almost 10 minutes for water, an hour to actually get food... and there were 3 people at the bar and only eight other people there then entire time we were there. I wish I could say slow... More

Went to the UO on a Sunday at noon. We were the only individuals there. This large cavernous space and only us. We ordered a hamburger and a haystack lunch item. They were both good. The waitress was friendly and attentive. It's unfortunate that this venue, that was once so vibrant is now deserted most of the time.

Good service, good food, good view. Large, cool, airy room, window-adjacent tables provide breeze. Food well-prepared, tasty, probably not "special" though. Pleasant service.

This is a great Olympia local favorite. They have good food and fun staff. Their food is yummy with some added flair. They have yummy flatbreads, burgers and appetizers. I'm not much of a beer drinker but I've heard they have some great local beers on tap. It's located in the old Olympian Hotel. That in itself has some great... More

We weren't sure they served food, but were pleasantly surprised the burgers and sweet potato fries were really good. The server was good and my only complaint is they charged me extra to substitute for regular fries. My niece enjoyed her food also.
