We went to see a friend's band, The Fantasy Band. It was really fun! The band was great, the drinks were good, and the crab and cheddar sandwich was delicious! The staff was friendly and helpful, and everyone had a great time.

We often stop in here on a Sunday for breakfast. The service is friendly, the food is good, and the view of Birch Bay is excellent. You can't go wrong for breakfast as this local stop!

This is a nice little diner across the street from the beach. Good food, good service. Full bar and friendly staff. Outdoor seating is available. We've been here a few times and they are consistant. Homemade items, not frozen products.

We arrived about 2pm. Waitress told us to pick a table, and she'd be "right with you." The few diners still there were finishing their meals. Owner/manager was sitting at a table visiting with some customers. We waited more than 15 minutes for waitress to...More

They should be reported to the Washington State Liquor Board. I was humiliated by their actions and behaviors in front of my colleagues. The should not be doing business in this industry, based on my experience.

I've put off trying this "new" optiion as I find it's always best to let things settle a bit... but they're just not there yet. The service was poor (although friendly). The food was OK, but far from excellent. Onion rings for $13 ought to...More
