Timidly came here after reading reviews not sure what to expect. Went into empty area that said to wait until seated. Was somewhat expecting to be there for a while but within seconds waitress game and sat us. She was extremely friendly especially to our young daughter. Patty melt was best one I ever had. Wife had Caesar salad that... More

The Rusty Tractor is another favorite dropping-in place on the way to the Washington Coast. This restaurant is one of several, in western Washington, that are good ole country kitchen style eateries that I thoroughly enjoy. Always a treat!

We give up. We tried this restaurant last year and found it adequate. We like it because it has easy access and parking for a truck and travel trailer. We went this year and found it understaffed and very disappointing food. There was one waitress who did her very best to handle the five tables occupied while we were there.... More

We have been coming here for several years and haven't had a bad meal yet. Large portions, and plan to share, or bring half of it home. We enjoy seeing the antiques scattered around this small but cozy restaurant both inside and outside. Don't forget to try those HUGE bisquits.

Daughter and I went on a busy Friday morning. Great service right away. Huge breakfast menu and good specials. She did French toast and patty sausage, I had a Mexican scramble. Very good food and great portions. Definitely worth it.

Excellent staff and servers. They have great food and great attitudes to match. Great value for what you get, I don't think anything on the menu would be a disappointment. Nice size portions. A great Mom & Pop style restaurant with family in mind. If you want a break from the "Chain" Restaurants, this is it.

I am not a big fan of diner food, but I have to admit that I was impressed! Good selection of food (and adult beverages, too)! They also have pull tabs so you can try out your luck with a few spare $$. Service was a bit slow, but they were fairly busy.
