Been to Brookings three times. Our motel referred us here the first time and we've been back each visit. Main eating area is in the basement of an art gallery. If you enter through the main door on Hwy 101, you might think it's deserted, but if you wander to the back and down the stairs you come into the restaurant. Mains are very good to excellent. Soups and salads and deserts have been average to good. Service, as noted before, is good but very causal, diner-like almost. Prices seemed quite reasonable to us. you need a reservation during kite weekend.
