Great setting at the golf course. Views were interesting, especially at sunset. Food was average to good; service was slow.

The setting on the golf course is a nice get away from the campus. The seafood salad, burger and fries are all excellent. The service at the bar was attentive and efficient. Its a nice place to come and eat in peace.

We went to Pullman for a business trip. We stayed at the Residence Inn and were told by the front desk manager that Banyons was just around the corner. We were surprised at the quality and decor of the restaurant when we pulled in. It is on the golf course and all the views from the windows is beautiful. The... More

While in town, we decided to have brunch for Father's day at Banyan's. The view is wonderful. We were seated and made our way to the brunch and were sadly disappointed. There were numerous platters of food such as the fruit which looked like a war zone, and many dishes had not been replenished. The pastries were all completely stale... More

Every time I have eaten here I have had excellent food and great service. Last night was the only exception. The service was great but the meal was lacking with a terrible cut of steak. Two of our party ordered the same item and we both couldn't eat it because it was tough and stringy. We told the waitress and... More

Visited this place for lunch, expecting the usually good food produced here. Was disappointed as the tomato soup was an inelegant, tasteless, blob, so thickened with cornstarch that even the addition of Cougar Gold cheese was unable to save this dish. It was left in the bowl, barely tasted. The vegetarian flat bread sandwich is outstanding. The French onion soup... More

We brought a first time visitor to Pullman to enjoy the views of the Palouse. Unfortunately the views were the best part of the visit. Ordered wine with dinner but server was "challenged" by task of opening the bottle. Got it open finally and then failed miserable on the basics of the taste and pouring the glasses--it was like he...

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
