The restaurant is on the golf course, and the view of the rolling hills is gorgeous, and that's what makes it so pleasant to enjoy a meal there. The food, unfortunately, is not high quality but just okay, so it's a great place to have lunch with colleagues or a dinner with a sweetheart. I recommend it for a casual... More

Brunch was terrible! Pre made desserts, and breads. Had to find someone to make omelets at omelet counter, it was raw when it came back with no apologies and an attitude! Food quality control policies were not followed, recently heated food was added to the buffet on top of food which had been already out, mayonase and egg salads were... More

I attended my high school reunion in Pullman this summer and we had brunch at Banyon's. It was a beautiful day and we sat on the patio. The service was great and the food was good. They only service brunch but you have a choice of everything from omelettes, French toast, Eggs Benedict, fruit, desserts, juice and cereal. You won'... More

Very nice setting for lunch with a small group. We were able to sit on the patio. I ordered the St. Croix salad. it was fresh and fairly good, but nothing to rave about. Average portion (which was fine) and the service was pretty fast. No bread was offered, and there was a lot more lettuce than toppings (although someone... More

We stopped for a night of great steaks and received four of the most grossly pieces of garbage for $26 a pop. Stay away unless your looking for ok salads. Too top things off the beer selection sucked, no IPAs or Wheat beers in house .

A nice building and a good view combined with good service should also have fine food. Unfortunately the kitchen at Banyans needs some cooking help. My food was just ok it was not bad but it was not inspired and the others at our table thought the same. For the prices that are charged I guess it was to pay... More

The view at Banyan's is the best in the area. If you're there on a beautiful evening, aim for an outdoor table overlooking the rolling green hills of the Palouse - gorgeous! I enjoyed their salmon very much - a large and delicious portion served with rice pilaf and assorted veggies, also tasty. I've been there several times in the... More

My husband and I were in Pullman for a family wedding, which occurred the day before his birthday. I took advantage of the fact that all of his siblings and most of their families were in one place and booked a brunch reservation at Banyan's. They set us up on the patio and took excellent care of us. Everyone had... More

I was excited to go to Banyan's because I had heard it was one of the best restaurants in the area. The view, the tables, the service was very nice. Our waitress was very attentive and pleasant. The food - not so much. I ordered a Monte Cristo and soup. The sandwich is traditionally served with with powdered sugar and... More

Between the golf course staff and the lady in the bar nobody could crack a smile. Nice golf play, mediocre sandwich. And, let's talk about the yelling course marshal, let's not.
