We have eaten here twice, both after long days skiing at White Pass. We were staying in Packwood for the night and were looking for something quick and easy to eat. I called ahead and ordered three burgers with fries and tots for the whole family. It was ready to be picked up in 10 minutes and came with lots... More

Pick your favorite burger. You can't go wrong. Order at the counter and wait just a short time for you scrumptious burger. Make sure to get the fries, not the T-tots. Don't know what they were thinking there..??

Liked the food, but was very busy so had to wait a bit. Love the décor and atmosphere that fits this mountain valley town.

They serve tasty burgers at reasonable prices. Nice, clean restaurant with friendly staff. During summer they close a little early.

A small diner type place in Packwood that I would highly recommend if you like burgers. Reasonably priced and decent sized. They close at 6pm.

We spent five nights in Packwood while hiking in Mt. Rainier National Park. We managed to eat at all four restaurants in town, including Cliff Dwellers. Cliff Dwellers is primarily a burger joint that offers both inside and outside seating. You order at the counter and the food is brought to you. Note that there is nothing fancy here. You... More

This was hands-down the best burger I've had in years! Definitely one of my top five burgers of all time. Cliff Droppers is a little family-run place, with friendly service and unique atmosphere. The food is a just a little pricey, but totally worth it. Highly, highly recommended!

The majority of people visit Packwood for their famous "huge" flea market, held every year on Memorial Day and Labor Day. And whilst there is an abundance of typical "fair food", I urge you to walk on and visit Cliff Droppers instead. Have a seat (inside our out, depending on weather), rest your feet (from all that flea market walking)... More

This place was really good! Lots of options, you can customize with the meat selection! We shared the mushroom Swiss burger on a lettuce wrap with elk instead of beef and it was very tasty! Our daughter had the Dub burger and said it was really good, the tots were crunchy and good. Nice big patty, just wish it were... More

I had The Dub which is basically a bacon cheeseburger. Nice big patty, very fresh lettuce and tomato, and condiments. Very tasty...and I'm pretty fussy about my burgers. I would definitely stop again the next time I'm in Packwood and I'm going to tell my buddies who ski at White Pass to be sure and give it a try.
