“Tasty food, good beer”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

I was staying in Eatonville recently and ate at this restaurant 2 nights in a row. The waiting staff were friendly and attended to us promptly. However, they did ask my wife for photo I.D. which was fine as she is 27 and looks younger, but the lady then questioned the address 'sticker' on her Oregon Driver's License, and claimed she had never seen anything like that before. Okay...maybe not in WA or other states, but in OR when you change your address the DMV send you a sticker with your new address on it and you just cover the old one. Anyway, after that moment of awkwardness, my wife just went for a sprite. No biggie.

Onto the food: first night I ordered their fettuccine Alfredo with shrimp and garlic bread. The Alfredo sauce was homemade and was delicious. I accompanied my meal with a 22 oz glass of a local micro-brew beer which was very tasty. The second night I ordered chipotle chicken with bacon on sourdough and onion rings. The chicken sandwich was very tasty, but the onion rings were average. Again I had a large glass of a local micro brew beer.

This bar and restaurant appeared family friendly, had a relaxed atmosphere and seemed to be a great place to go and watch live sports. The food overall was good, and came out from the kitchen fairly quickly, and they had a good selection on drinks too. Price wise it also appealed to me. I would eat here again if in the area.

“A Disappointment”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

There is an extensive menu but the food was sub-par and overpriced. Was excited to go with offerings of Wild Boar, Elk, and Buffalo burgers which is really cool but they didn't turn out so well. If the place was just a diner with diner prices I would rate higher but it promotes itself as so much more which it simply was not. The rampant smoking in the parking lot definitely impacted our party too. No smoking allowed on the patio but leaning on the railing of it is ok. Not cool. Chapter 70.160 RCW anyone??
