Stayed a night at the Best Western in Liberty Lake. Who would have guessed there would be a fine dining establishment in the gas station strip center next door. I ordered the Shellfish Pappardelle. The shrimp were prepared perfect, the scallop was quite possibly the best I have ever had, so tender melt in your mouth good. I highly recommend... More

Don't let the fact that this restaurant is located in a small strip mall immediately adjacent to a gas station fool you. Stepping inside, you'll be amazed at the beautiful interior. The menu offers so many great choices, we had a hard time narrowing down our options. The seafood chowder is a signature dish, but every meal served to our... More

For those of you who haven't been here. Give it a try. It's a great little restaurant hidden in a gas station plaza. Hot dogs and potato chips you say? Not this place. Put that microwave burrito down and enjoy the finer things in life! Walking through the front door is like entering a new dimension. Sans petroleum. An American... More

Great food well prepared and excellent service. Small spot in a store front but the food is outstanding. A good selection of lunch and dinner main courses and some delicious soups and salads. A very enjoyable dinning experience.

My wife and I have gone to Hay J's quite a few times since we moved to the Spokane area in 2010. While the price of the entrees may scare some people off the quality and taste is well worth it. I have yet to find another restaurant in the Spokane area that can consistently produce the quality of food... More

Fabulous meal. All it would take to get a 5 is the following 1. When you take away my knife, bring me a new one 2. When my water glass is empty, fill it. Soon. 3. When I change the wine choice, don't pour the new wine in the same glass. Give me a new glass!

This place is in Liberty Lake, east of Spokane along I-90, but it's worth the drive. I've eaten here twice so far and enjoyed both meals immensely. Friendly and prompt service, a variety of menu choices, delirious food and a full bar. The building is attached to a gas station which is somewhat deceiving but not off putting. Reservations are...

We visited Hay J's after a member of our group recommended it to us. It's about a 20 minute ride from downtown Spokane, but well worth it! The menu has enough variety to suit all palettes and it's reasonably priced. We all skipped on appetizers and salads in order to really enjoy our entrees, but they looked delicious and I... More

We enjoyed a wonderful dinner in this Bistro. The food was superb, I had the beef medallions and my son had the rack of lamb. We also enjoyed an appetizer of calamari which was sooo good. to compliment this fine meal we enjoyed a bottle of Hay J's Cabernet which was excellent. The service was excellent and the food well...
