Visited last Sunday for breakfast. Very comfortable atmosphere, good service, tasty food and large portions. A bit too expensive for breakfast or we would visit more often. We live in Lynden, so there aren't a lot of choices for a Sunday breakfast and it is a lot closer than Bellingham.

We had a large group visit and the wait staff did a tremendous job. Most everone was happy about the food except my fish and chips. Mine was way over cooked and the batter was too thick. Fish was dry and the crust was over cooked.

Been driving by this place for what seems like forever, Golf now at Raspberry Ridge & decided to give it a try last Sunday after our round. Well what a treat. Firstly, the staff could not be friendlier. They had just finished their lunch rush & they were all in good spirits. Portions are large, prices too cheap & the... More

Clean Country Westen atmosphere. Pleasant attentive servers: water and coffee always kept full. Meal prepared quickly, cooked to order, good sized servings. Fun stop for breakfast or lunch, but average bland flavor.

This place has a smashing ambiance, the service was second to none and everyone was very friendly in the country way. Everywhere there is a cowboy motif with John Wayne being a featured display. This is a local joint and Us British really enjoyed the pub atmosphere that is child friendly. Definitely recommend for kids as mine were amazed by... More

Ate lunch here on way to BC. We were looking for something local when ran across the Rusty Wagon. Well it's not Pacific NW looking nor NW food--looks to belong in Western Plains or Colorado ranch country. Service was fast and friendly. Food was tasty---large burgers are moist and tasty as was the fried chicken. Convenient and plenty of parking.

I wouldn't give this restaurant "rave" reviews. It works for a plain meal but nothing special. Open breakfast, lunch and dinner, including Sunday.

Call ahead to reserve for a lunch or dinner meeting. Food is down home, tasty and make sure you arrive hungry. Portions are too large for a healthy diet. Split the meal with a spouse/friend or plan to take 1/2 home.

Great traditional breakfasts, exceptional corned beef hash and huge portions. The kind of restaurant that enables all us old fat country boys!

I try to have a meal at this rustic, family owned and friendly restaurant whenever I am in the Lynden area. The food is always good and plenty. I especially enjoy the chicken fried steak, prime rib, and burgers and then any of the dessert offerings. The apple and seasonal pies (alamode or not) are delicious.
