Very slow service, ham and cheese omelette had so much grease inside it the eggs were saturated and could only eat the top portion of egg and the ham was over cooked and dry. Much better places to eat in town.

First time at this restaurant - loved it. Friendly staff, nice expansive menu with good value prices. Going back soon for the breakfast, which others give top marks. Love their milkshakes and hot beef sandwiches. Home cooking.

We each have good breakfasts - wife bacon was way over done. My Dungeness crab omelet was excellent. Had not had a fresh - real crab - omelet in years. Service was a bit spotty - wait staff seemed to under staffed. Gift shop had...More

I'm sure they do! I work at a restaurant in Portland, OR and we ALWAYS have something that we can put together for gluten free customers. Just ask specifically for what you need and they should be able to provide it for... More
