Don't look for this place being featured on Diners, drive ins and dives anytime soon ...

There is no pride if ownership in this restaurant .. It is very dusty ... The floor was horrid .. The server was not the friendliest person ..

Now let's move on the food..this is what I imagined prison food to taste like..wait prisoners probably get better food ..nothing is made from scratch .. My microwaved chicken fried steak was luke warm in the middle and this country fried gravy tasted powdery ... This is a classic case of owner burn out and POOR management .. Don't come here ..

“Sign said BBQ.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

The building is a cluge of additions and badly arranged. The buffet had only breakfast items at lunch time. The sign said "BBQ" and it had only 1 hard to find BBQ item on its menue. Not a very good lunch experience.

“Dirty”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

We ate at this place a few years ago, while traveling through Wenatchee. The food wasn't the best we've had, but was good enough for dinner after a long drive. This time we had breakfast. The food was average, at best.

What gives this place such a bad rating is how filthy it was. Dust everywhere. Lampshades over the tables had obvious fingerprints in the dust. The trunk on top of the roof (it's an inside decoration) had dust bunnies on top of dust bunnies. The kind of built up dust you'd expect to see in a very old attic, not a business serving food. As a patron, waiting for my food to arrive, noticing this dust made me wonder just how filthy the kitchen was and then made me wonder if I should toss money on the table and leave without eating because if the management doesn't care what the front looks like, do they care what the back looks like?

To add insult to injury the men's restroom was disgusting according to someone eating with us. He said there was a general grime all over the place and a drain in the floor that was beyond crusty. I did not go in the women's restroom, because at that point I just wanted to get out and hope I didn't lose what little I had eaten of my breakfast all over the car on my drive home.

If management wants to stay in business they should consider a deep clean of the entire property. Inside and out. By the way--cars have to park behind the building and the clutter, back there, is unsightly which probably chases off potential customers.

“This ground is Prospected out!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Small salad bar with not many choices. Limited menu and uses cheaper cuts of meat for their steaks. Overpriced. You can eat better elsewhere, and you should. Avoid this place.

“Ok at best!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

Food a little expensive for what you get. Ordered steak and shrimp speacial. Best thing was the baked potato. Shrimp was frozen bag popcorn shrimp and steak was over cooked 6 oz sirloin. About $ 70.00 for four people with tip. Wont be going back.
