A bit pricy, but perfect for a couples night out

Swilly's is an interesting mix of bar and bistro located in the heart of downtown Pullman. Decorated with a horse themed motif, the restaurant is a bit small on the inside leading to an intimate feel. This is not a restaurant to plan a rushed meal nor one with small children.

This restaurant just opened up when we were in Pullman, and what a pleasant surprise. There is obvious attention to detail in the well appointed décor. The wait staff is knowledgeable and friendly. The food is fresh and different for Pullman. The place feels upscale, has a bistro feel to it, refreshing for the area's other venues. Stop by, you'll... More

Great place for a romantic, cozy dinner. Great food and service. Good wine list and the desserts are to die for.

I thought it was very overpriced and the portions disappointingly small. I ordered the seared duck breast entree. For $22, I got four tiny slices, barely 3 oz. of meat, I'd guess. The orange creme sauce drizzled over the duck didn't quite work, and the sides were terrible. The smashed potatoes that came with it were heavy, lumpy, and visually... More

Just plain fantastic lunch on the patio with our pooch Norman. We enjoyed sandwiches and house salads. Whoever created the house salad is a GENIUS. I could not imagine the combination of ingredients together would work but WOW! The patio has been well thought out and when the newly planted hedges mature the space will become even more elegant. Our... More

I really like the atmosphere of the inside as well as the patio. The food was great. I showed up late and immediately got a drink and menu.

We sat at the bar & were served by a lovely lady who was helpful and friendly. The mussels were moist and flavorful as was their Kobe burger. Their dessert list is fabulous so we shared the carrot cake which was just the right amount of sweetness. Both of the wines I had; the Pinot Gris & Merlot complimented the... More

I had the turkey club, based on others' reviews, and they were right - it was delicious! The ciabatta bread was great and it comes with an excellent salad. I also had their daily special of fire roasted tomato soup, which was tasty. It was a beautiful day to take advantage of the spacious and pleasant outdoor patio so no... More
