“closest any man will come to having a multiple O”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

This is the closest any man will come to having a multiple O…..
The spring roll was fantastic…..every bite was a blast of multiple flavors you have to experience.
I had the 8 oz fillet (looked more like 5oz) drizzled with a butter sauce – cooked to perfection and multiple O’s in every bite. The veggie portion of Brussels spouts was very small but prepared well….when I go back I’ll ask for a double helping of veggies.
They have this lemon zingy salad dressing – excellent. This would be excellent drizzled over a lettuce wedge, unfortunately, it came with a small dinner salad (rabbit lettuce), but if they bottled that dressing – they could make a million dollars.
Advice to the chef….train your wait staff so they know what each dish tastes like (including the wine) so they can do a better job of selling it to customers. I had to take a chance – luckily, every piece of food was excellent.
All in all, if you want food that will blow your taste buds away – this is the place.
I’ll be back!

“So-so”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

The service was nice, the bread was excellent, but the main course was tough as a shoe. Flat iron steak should not have a gristle layer; it is normally a very tender cut. I complained and was offered a slight discount in the form of a free dessert (which I recall being good). Examining the bill later I found that I had been charged for the dessert. Oh well....they sort of tried, and I didn't go away mad, but I won't be back anytime soon.

“Best Food in Chehalis, No Question!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

I have been traveling to Chehalis on and off for the last year. I have tried over 10 returaunts. Last night I and five other associates ate at Mackinaws. We ordered five of the meals, and each and every one person loved the food. The pricing was around $35 a person not including tip and included two bottles of wine for the table.
