This is a very nice restaurant with great views and a very nice outdoor eating area. Also very nice entertainment on the patio. We had reservations for a large group (+25) on a Friday night. Banyan's only had one woman waiting on all of these...More

This is a must visit either before, during or after your round of golf on a very interesting course. The menu as many selections, something for everyone. They will even make some substitutes. Very nice view from the restaurant inside or on the outside deck....More

Banyans is situated on top of a ridge that overlooks the golf course, rolling wheat fields and the Moscow Mountains. It has a quiet pleasant feel to the open air restaurant area. Service is relaxed and friendly and the food is good. Full service bar...More

Banyans is horrible. I have been there multiple times, either as a banquet guest or as a guest in the restaurant. The food is mediocre at best and very expensive. The service is not all that great either. The golf course is decent.

I had lunch here with a friend. We kept it simple and had Cuban sandwiches. The sandwiches were good, but nothing special. What was special, was the bloody Mary. The mix is fabulous and the proportion of vodka to mix was perfect. The veggies that...More

We like to take people here for a special lunch - it's really pretty and the views of the Palouse are great. The food has been very good at times, and other times has been disappointing. We went again recently and the food was very...More

We arrived at Banyan's early and were seated on the patio. It was a football weekend and we hoped to get in before the crowds. The view was lovely. Our server was prompt and courteous. We enjoyed a cocktail while waiting for our meals. The...More
